    I just read that J had a minigolf kit backstage at the hultsfred festival 2001.

    it was Mercury Rev who were kicked because of playing street hockey during sound check in 1993:

    Rumour had it that Mascis booted you guys.

    No, I think what it was, was that J. [Mascis] thought somewhere along the line that we were a bit too weird for his audience. Along the same lines we started playing street hockey during sound checks. He didn’t like it, so we just left. He later came and saw us at Lollapalooza and apologized to us, and said he was having problems with his mind or something and didn’t want us playing games.

    hey, no correction intended, I just fell over that info bit & thought I post it, didn’t even think about if there is a difference between soundcheck or backstage :lol: I just repeated what has been said in the interview…

    I’ve read somewhere that the Stones are playing snooker or nineball pool backstage.
