36 CrazyfistsWhen Alaskan metal crue 36 Crazyfists return to the Über Kingdom of Rock ‘n’ Roll this coming week, they’ll no doubt be playing to packed venues in front of hundreds of sweaty, moshing fans… not a showroom full of pissed off sales reps!  Wondering what the hell we’re on about?  Well, proving that hell is indeed gig-shaped, Allan Maxwell recently got 36CF vocalist Brock Lindow to spill the beans on what he reckons must rank as one of the worst of all time, never mind possibly the most disastrous in the band’s storied career…

teenagecc86When Dave Prince told us that he'd got Teenage Casket Company frontman Rob Wylde to write a Gig From Hell article for us we never imagined that it would suddenly turn into the final (?) collaboration between him and former TCC member Jamie Delerict who, when hearing that his actions would feature heavily, felt like he had to add his side of the story.........and what a story!

billthumbHell ain't a bad place to be if you're the frontman of a legendary horror metal band...or so you'd think.
