By Road Chief Chris Coyle (Red Fang) What’s happened the first week of tour? Hmm… Man, nothing all that exciting. Kinda like every other tour going out there. You know, after the first show we swerved to miss a deer and rolled the van twice in the middle of I-5, walked away with only a couple broken ribs and one stitch:
Still played the show the next night, but who hasn’t done that?
Got a van for free on a days notice, only missing two shows and meeting back up with the tour in San Francisco. Played a couple killer shows, stayed in a house that was wedged between Oprah and Tom Cruise’s places and at a converted ‘50s firehouse complete with built in pipe organ:
Oh yeah, and then the house with the mini-ramp in the tree:
I almost forgot about that since everyone and their grandma has one of those these days.
Then the van started leaking fuel making it a potential rolling Molotov cocktail, borrowed yet another van from the Big Business guys to make the show in Vegas while our van got fixed in L.A. There were topless bartenders at the Vegas show, per the usual…
Then it was down to San Diego to hang out with the homies:
Wish there was something exciting or cool to tell you. Just boring life on the road type shit…
