    Default Gary Busts Head Open At Show

    Found this on blabbermouth:

    Ex-VAN HALEN Frontman GARY CHERONE Busts Head Open At AMAZING JOURNEY Debut - May 28, 2006
    The fourth (and likely final) in a series of tribute bands assembled by DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy played the first of three very special shows Saturday night (May 27) at The Center Theater Stage in Whittier, California, paying tribute to one of the greatest live bands in the history of rock and roll. AMAZING JOURNEY — a tribute to THE WHO, featuring Portnoy, Paul Gilbert (MR. BIG, RACER X), Billy Sheehan (MR. BIG, DAVID LEE ROTH, TALAS) and Gary Cherone (VAN HALEN, EXTREME) — played the following songs:

    Set #1:

    01. Baba O'Riley
    02. Sister Disco
    03. Substitute
    04. Pictures of Lily
    05. I Can See for Miles
    06. Young Man Blues
    07. A Quick One While He's Away
    08. Bargain
    09. Behind Blue Eyes
    10. The Real Me
    11. Love Reign O'er Me

    Intermission

    Set #2:

    12. Overture
    13. It's a Boy
    14. 1921
    15. Amazing Journey
    16. Sparks
    17. Eyesight to the Blind (The Hawker)
    18. Christmas
    19. The Acid Queen
    20. Pinball Wizard Tommy, Can You Hear Me?
    21. There's A Doctor
    22. Go to the Mirror
    23. Smash the Mirror
    24. I'm Free
    25. Tommy's Holiday Camp
    26. We're Not Gonna Take It

    Encore:

    27. Who are You
    28. Won't get Fooled Again
    29. My Generation

    Gary Cherone — caught up in the moment during the "smashing" encore of "My Generation" at the Whittier performance — decided to do a full body dive into Mike Portnoy's obliterated custom-made drum set. Unfortunately, the back of his head landed (or so it is believed) on one of the lug nuts on the drums.

    CalProg security manager Gruno reports the event as follows: "Gary flipped over the drums and his back landed on a mic stand and one of the bass drums. The back of his head landed flat against the back of the toms. He was knocked out briefly (maybe three seconds max) as I was on stage left and he had this bewildered look when he came to. He sat motionless for another few seconds. After they exited the stage, I had to get Portnoy's stick bag for him and there was blood all over the drums. He was okay with some ice and towels in the dressing room." [...]

    While nfortunate, I can't help but think that all the photo needs is a little halo of stars and tweetie birds, and Garys replaced the coyote in a 'Road Runner' cartoon!

    A little zen....... Headed your way.......
