Tours can be difficult on musicians, especially as they get older. A band may have been on the road for months, but they have to perform every night for fans as if it were their first night because it will be the only time those fans see them. To help, managers will often hire massage therapists or chiropractors to help bands recover from past shows and get ready for that night. For many, it’s a chance to relax. For Brad Paisley, it’s pure comedy.
Paisley posted a video of his drummer, who couldn’t walk his back was so busted up, getting his back adjusted with the warning “this video may be disturbing.” I expected to hear joints popping, maybe even see a spine get realigned. It’s really nothing like that.
The R&B, thumping techno music, and – I think – a pig squeal cover up almost every other sound. It’s as weird as it sounds, but without the soundtrack, it just looks like a bunch of your uncles hanging out on their phones. It’s not his best work, but I’ll give it a polite clap.
