Nuthin'- In the 90's we saw ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd in PHX.

Some overly eager high school age kids got into a fight during the early moments of the show and actually drew a little blood and spilled a lot of beer.
While the band continued to play, an entire clean up crew came, complete with mops and big yellow buckets. Everyone around looked on in amazement !!!! The kids who fought, settled down and the rest of the show went on without a hitch. It seemed surreal at the time.

@ls-sbronson: Well that goes to show theres always one in a crowd, maybe a few. I seen the same tour here in KC in 99. As far as the spilling beer ...... I have to say thats alcohol abuse, lol

Hill,
We saw George last year in NY, after the show he came out and walked around the room and shook hands with everyone that was still in the venue ( it was a pretty small place).

Buddy Guys version of Mustang Sally is the BEST!

Also, if you get a chance to watch the Eric Clapton/ Steve Winwood special on PBS that is airing. It is really good.
