The Toughest Hundred Dollars & Other Rock & Roll Stories

I was nearly electrocuted when a torrent of water flooded the stage right in the middle of playing Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll. How we survived grisly death that night is a mystery. One night, we battled through a snowstorm to get to a gig, only to find a hostile crowd that hated every song we did. We were drowned out by a jukebox, choked by noxious clouds of cigarette smoke, dodged flying chairs and bottles at least once, and heckled by bar patrons. We slogged through heavy snow, sleet, mud, and rain to get to gigs where we made less than we paid for the gas money to get there.

And we loved every single second of it.
