The day of the second time we were going to play there, I heard that the place shut down. There was a padlock on the door and the owner left town. No explanation why it closed. Luckily, I was able to get in touch with my bandmates that day. They would have driven three hours or more to find they had no gig.

Well I was talkin with a Moderator at another Site, and he claimed to be the x lead player for Blondie and had written the song One Way or another!! And did a lotta name dropin Claimed to have played with BB etc. and wanted to geta blues band together,and asked me if I was interested, Sure I will give it a shot, and it was down hill from there, I spoke with him on the phone a couple times, and he would never let me have a number to reach him,he claimed the police had a tap on it and didn't want me to be involved, He claimed to have played with the gun club, and NY dolls and others ,when I asked what was his blues background he tried to convience me that was Blues just angry blues???????Lori even read some of the stuff he claimed and warned me sometin was not right , but I was feelin it already, He claimed to have had meetings with arista, and alligator, And Norm Lieberman BB's agent!!Well as soon as he said that I knew sometin was wrong cuz Norm Lieberman is not BB's agent!!! so I started checkin with Arista, Alligator. and Norm Liberman Productions, as Well as Floyd Liberman who is BB's agent!! A simple Email to them all explaining the situation, That Mr. So and So has asked me to become involved with his music, and claimes to have record deals and agent deals, Can you confirm that any of this is pending??? All said They never heard of this guy ever and never has met with him, Alligator said that it sounded like a scam!! He claimed to have a necklace BB gave him personally!! When I spoke to BB's office about this They Laughed and said thousands have those BB throws them at his concerts!! I checked all the web sites of bands he claims to have played in . not one of them has his name anywhere or any pictures of him any where, NUTTIN to validate what he was tellin me, I asked Alvin Lee who is a good friend to check it out He asked Toni Franklin his agent to check into it as well as his bassman Pete, and which was with Alligator and nobody coulod find anything, BOTTOM LINE he is a LOOSER!!Now he does have a good line of crap wit him and has a bunch of guitars he buys and sells , I forwarded all the emails and statements from Arista and Alligator and everthing I had , To him and the other moderators on there site, the other moderators say he can't even Play the guitar very well, I must be a dumbass but I thought if you was a moderator you were to have some class?? But I just had to get that o0ff my chest to let every one know what happened!!

Our steady gig this past summer double booked one week and two bands showed up. The other band played as we had just played the week before and our entire entourage ended up getting free dinner and drinks for the misunderstanding.

Our monthly Fri & Sat gig also got shut down by the IRS this past summer. They literally put chains and padlocks on the doors. Luckily we weren't playing that week as the band that was booked played hell trying to get their equipment out of there. Two weeks later the drumkit could still be seen on stage through the front window.

Damn, all of this has got me to thinking that this is a tough town to play in!
