SEVERE TIRE DAMAGE IN THE
ROLLING STONES WEB SITE
Posted November 21, 1994
". . . The MBONE Broadcast began on Friday
November 18th 10:00pmEST after a an unannounced renegade warmup set by an obscure
and very bad band of furry Palo Alto Geeks. They touted that this was the first ever warmup set by
a band in a different city thanthe headliner. They started their warmup set
at 9:30EST just as we were about to
do our final set of broadcast tests before the do or die live video feed came via
satellite from the Cotton Bowl so we fully agreed when they did crufty durges like
"I'm an asshole." and "We don't care.". . . "
Severe Tire Damage Editorial: Severe Tire Damage warmed up with comedian Denis Leary's "I'm an Asshole" during
a breakdown of the local MBone connection. Apparently there was no breakdown...

". . . The Sexually Tranmitted
Diseases came back on for a followup acoustic set, much much much worse than the first,
because they covered campy folk songs that we all recognized from numerous acid trips
around the fires at Grateful Dead parking lot parties, and Washington Square Park furry
troll guitar singalong sessions. YUCK!"
Severe Tire Damage Editorial: Severe Tire Damage's local audience and half the band left during the Stones' MCast.
Bass player Mark Manasse and guitarist Russ Haines stuck around after the show to
host a live worldwide gameshow/singalong, awarding virtual beers to the audience.
Highlights included heavy virtual beer consumption by a rowdy Australian site and
a "Beavis and Butthead" imitation from Finland.
