Explaining to Do


The owner of New Jersey’s famed Stone Pony nightclub was just on CNN saying that when the band Great White played his bar recently, they turned on the pyrotechnic display without informing the club management they were going to do that. “We were not happy,” the owner said. Last night on TV, Jack Russell, the lead singer of the band, said he had gotten permission from the Station’s manager to use the pyrotechnics. But that club’s sound man, who survived the fire, said he was stunned to see the pyrotechnics, because nobody had told him they were going to be used. This is why he didn’t have a fire extinguisher close at hand, he said.

It sounds to me like that band has a lot of explaining to do.
