Steve Risteen - Slap Shot

There are so many great show memories, it is hard to pick one. But, a stand out would be one of the many times we played with the Bad Brains and I kept having a guitar problems, I think it was the amp. I turn to try and fix it and Dr. Know was already on it. Yes, Dr. Know of the Bad Brains was my roadie for a few minutes. That was cool.

I saw you play at City Gardens and you had guitar/amp problems then too. You had a fit like a baby and walked off stage. At least Gang Green played a full set.
