Damn Dude, must have been nice living that Rock Star life.

I think Greg Valentine is dead now, like some many other wrestlers.

No rock star life there. I was at a bar as usual in those days.

I think they were there promoting some beer.

Funnier story is when I was in Toronto one time. Crocodile Dundee was there promoting Foster's and pouring beers. Some security guy was checking IDs and mine was from Quebec so it was in french. He couldn't read it so he said no. I was only in my mid to late-thirties at the time.

Dundee looked at this fool like he was insane, Said something along the lines of

"We put this stuff in baby bottles back home.". He passed me a beer and said "Here blow the froth off of this one." The security guy freaked out and called over his security buddies and the whole thing got stupid. All over a beer. Only in Toronto would that happen. Paul Hogan thought these fools were nuts. He said there are some things in life worth fighting for and beer is one of them. I thought he was going to drop the guy.

He was a real nice guy. Funny too.

When I was in high school a friend of mine worked at the Commack Arena on Long Island. It was a smaller arena that had minor league hockey(we're talking slap shot here)and the WWF used to be there every month. My buddy used to get us front row seats. I got to see Andre The Giant vs. Ken Patera. I also got spit on by one of the Wild Somoan Twins. Lots of fun. I was one of those kids who would defend pro wrestling saying it was real until I saw Tito Santana and Gregg Valentine yucking it up and having a ball together back stage about an hour after they bloodied eachother up. Never went again.

I believed in it for a long time, I used to run with this big old country dude that would want to whip somone's ass if they said it was fake.

I sold Hash for this wrestler named Abdullah Zataar, He sold it to make extra money..but he would not smoke it. I was around 20. I used to help cut out the Camels that were sewed to his wrestling trunks. One day he went into the store and left his wallet in the car. I looked at em and his real name was Ricky Sanchez, he was from Mexico, not Sudan. He got pissed at me..then he laughed.

I lived in these Apartments called "Falcons Rest" they were furnished. A very old Woman owned them, she loved wrestling. Must have had a thousand photos on the walls throughout her house of wrestlers. Most of them autographed. She would let Wrestlers rent for 1/2 price that everyone else paid. So at one time we had..Mr Wrestling # 1, The French Angel, Jack Diamond, Tommy Rich and a few less known wrestlers lving there.

I often wondered was she a wrestling groupie before she got so old.

The French Angel was not from France, he was from Memphis...his real name was Gene Murrell. One time his wife knocked on the door panicking. She said she had walked to the store without her house key and that she could not get Gene to come to the door. She thought someone had broken in and hurt him, because someone had thrown a cinder block through Jack Diamonds windshield earler in the day. I crawled up the Balcony and The French Angel was asleep on the couch..LOL .

It was cool living there, never a dull moment.

I was a manager for Tower Records for about 5 years. We did an instore event with ICP. Oh my, what a disaster. At the end, there was basically a riot. It is very funny in hindsight, but just plain scary at the time. I can't remember how many hundred people showed up, but the line was ridiculous, blocking traffic and whatnot. And they gave out free soda (I forgot what brand was their big thing). It was funny, I drove a white cargo minivan at the time (no windows on the sides or back) and it was all different colours from the mess the fans made in the parking lot... Anyway, it was quite an experience.

The fans were just insane and we eventually couldn't get everyone in, which is why there was a riot.

My favorite thing about ICP.

I force everyone who rides in my car to play my Sirius game. We go through the first 30 channels or so and you have to guess the artist, the name of the song, and for bonus point you have to sing a few lines

Well whenever we get to Hard Attack it’s always just a bunch of screaming and growling and the default answer is always “Insane Clown Posse”!

down with ICP?
you know me...
Down WIT ICP!
YOU KNOW ME!
DOWN WIT ICP!

quote:
How many times will I sit in a hot car?
Traffic jam, been sittin' for a **** in' hour
Must be an accident, I hope nobody died
Finally get there, and the crash is on the other side
The gawkers roll and they creep slow
Hoping they can see a mangled body show
Some park, and stand there and watch it all
With their kids, they point, and **** in stare (and just look)




my life on I-66...i often refer to my fellow commuters as the "ICP".

YES FAYGO... That was killing me while I was posting that I couldn't think of it!

Actually, no, that instore was at the Schaumburg IL store outside of Chicago. That was quite a crazy day. I think I have a video tape somewhere of some of it. Nothing with the band in it though. In fact, that might be the only instore I did that I didn't meet any of the people at. I was forced, with much of the rest of the staff, to be mostly security.

I need to go to Tower in Atlanta again soon, it's been years. Their stuff usually coast a little more. But they always had stuff I could not find anymore.

i worked security once for an instore that HMV did with Samantha Fox. It was myself and one other guy. They said that they only expected a light showing of people. An hour before there were hundreds of people. I told the manager that he should get both mall security and the police involved because it was out of hand before it began.

He was a fool and thought I was just some hired guy who didn't have a clue.

The store got destroyed. Racks knocked over and product was everywhere. Insanity. They rushed like it was the Beatles. Lots of young girls and teenage boys so it wasn't like you could pound them or anything.

Her people got her out of there quick and then it was even crazier. By the time that the police showed, the damage was done. The first thing that the cops said to the manager was "Why didn't you call us before?".

The bonus side was this happened when they were phasing LPs out. They got trampled and the store sold them for a $1 each. I bought at least 50 albums.

All this over a talentless woman with huge breasts.
