♪ ♫" I got me a pencil
And a moleskin book
When I heard Bertha Franklin
Shot and killed Sam Cooke

I wrote down
December 11th 1964
Ain't gonna be 'Twistin
The Night Away' no more

It took 15 minutes
For the jury to decide
The cause o' death
Was justified homicide

Eliza Boyer wasn't called
By the prosecution
Then she was arrested
For prostitution

The Hacienda Motel
Had a busted down door
Sam's wallet and his money
Was never accounted for..."♪ ♫

"I don't know whether [the guitar] was left behind by the people [in the house] before [us], or whether it was a friend of the family's—nobody seemed to know why it was there."
It was there so you could become a fucking legend.

2003 - 100 people died after pyrotechnics started a fire at a club during a gig by Great White in West Warwick, Rhode Island. Great White singer Ty Longley was also killed in the accident. Two brothers who owned the club were charged, along with the former tour manager, with involuntary manslaughter. Foam soundproofing material at the edge of the stage set alight and the blaze spread quickly in the one-story wooden building as fans all tried to escape through the same exit.

Great White began a tour in July 2003 to raise money for the survivors and families of victims.
