'Blues Traveler' Guy

He likes coffee ...
And he likes tea ...
But the guy from Blues Traveler can't handle his booze ... and TMZ has footage showing John Popper hurling after trying to chug some whisky on stage.

It all went down last week at a performance at Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida -- when Popper, who had been slamming drinks throughout the show, tried to slam one final cup ... and failed.

We're not here to judge (ok, maybe a little) ... but we've all been there -- and like a true champion, John embraced his failure, and called himself out for the "party foul."

Party on, Blues Traveler guy.

8:34 AM PT -- Popper says there's a damn good reason he heaved -- THERE WAS A BUG IN HIS CUP!!! Gross ...

Here's his tweet: "Man there's some awesomely disturbing footage of me hurling up a bug in my whiskey on TMZ & it seems to be blowing up!Cool! #strangelyproud;)"

He added, "seriously a huge leggy bug in the whisky."

that wasn't even chugging a beer. that was like a last gulp. What happened to that guy? He was massively fat then thinned all down and now he's plumping back up.
Wait he barfed beer. Guess that means TMZ must believe he's in dire need of a treatment facility because you know TM thinks everyone needs rehab. You know magic happens in rehab. a little pixie comes down and shows you a bad liver and poof its all better.

Isn't this guy paid to sing not chug beers? What a sad ending to the Blues Travelers...a blast from the past.

riddle me this...
if a musician vomits on a stage in a non-existant town, does anyone acknowledge it?

i believe the correct name your editor is searching for is "ponte vedra"...

unless part of your team is furloughed with the government, get your s**t together, tmz.....

He was catering to the crowd and quickly realized he is not as young as he used to be.

Get back to work!    

Yeah but didn't he have gastric bypass surgery? I didn't think anyone who had that surgery could chug anything.

The fact is that people who drink all the time, round the clock, day after day, have these bouts of involuntary stomach rejection--it just comes up all of a sudden--no control. His weight is a definite sign of drinking--yes, looks like he is off the wagon.

Many bands use tea in whiskey bottles so they can chug them to look cool during the show. I've used Jack and tea in a whiskey bottle before. I suspect someone gave him straight whiskey as a joke and he hurled. NBD

Saw this guy on stage a few years back. Smoked cigs like a fiend and acted like he was God's gift to music. Has been.
