Entertainment journalist Jon Niccum has been busy adapting "The Worst Gig" into a book of the same name. The author turned in the final edited manuscript, and the production team at Sourcebooks is laying out the pages. Almost half the material in the print version is comprised of stories that have not appeared online. Additionally, many artists featured have provided new and some previously unpublished live photos for inclusion. Expect to see it on shelves and available for download in October, 2013.

Welcome to WorstGig.com, a website encompassing 14 years of interviews conducted by veteran music journalist Jon Niccum.
As any performer can attest, it's not always a glamorous experience. There are a million stories of hardship, regret, mistakes and mishaps that can make up the landscape of life as a touring musician. The Worst Gig is a collection of those stories from some of the most influential musicians of our time, told in their own words for your entertainment.
Visitors to this site will be the first to read a selection of stories from Niccum's archive. They'll also be able to experience audio recordings from the original interviews and a collection of some of the web's best video clips that showcase others' own Worst Gig moments. If you're a performer yourself and have a Worst Gig story to share, we'd love to hear it.
