The first time that I saw Thorogood was in Texas at dallas Alley, it was a great show, everyone was singing along.



Then when we left, we saw one guy stab another guy through the chest with a broken crutch.


Ah Dallas.

Doesn't Vince Neil sound like a semi rolled over his voice box now?

I think I saw George once or twice in the mid-80s at Max Bell. He was no spring chicken then (35). Looks like most of the Destroyers are still with him.

I've seen more then one.


Yeah, and he was dead, and we had to stick around post concert to answer questions where the answer was basically


"And then Bro I crap you not he picked up his broken crutch and rammed it through that bro there"


It was the early 90's so we said bro a lot.

That's crazy, I wonder if artists get notified when major incidents happen after shows.
