    My drummer lives right above that restaurant… there was a shotgun fired into the ceiling, luckily it didn’t penetrate, but his kid and girl were home at the time, and this could have ended up a lot worse than it did. A message to these crooks…. you are scum, turn yourself in before you get caught on the street by my drummer… he’s much bigger than all of you, and that’s just his arms.
