    Default Andre the Giant

    By the age of 12, André the Giant was so large that he did not fit on the school bus. So, playwright Samuel Beckett would drive him to school on his truck.




    The Giant had moves! Here we see a young André holding a woman.





    André the Giant was, quite possibly, ‘The Greatest Drunk of All Time’. Apparently, he drank 7,000 calories worth of alcohol, every day. No big deal.



    “When Hulk Hogan toured Japan with Andre, the giant would drink tall boys like water on the bus. He would crush the can in his hand (yes one hand), and throw it at Hogan. Whenever the bus stopped, Hogan had to buy Andre as many cases of beer as he could carry back onto the bus. Yes, Hogan was his beer wench.”

    André the Giant insisted on paying every restaurant bill, so when Arnold Schwarzenegger quietly paid the cashier before André could, he was obviously displeased. So, Schwarzenegger was physically lifted up and put on top of his own car by André and Wilt Chamberlain.






    Picture of André the Giant with a very young Dwayne Johnson (The Rock).

    Andre was the man.

     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    I remember seeing him wrestle in the late 70's, when my dad took me to the Civic Auditorium. Ricky The Dragon Steamboat was also on the card, I believe.

    Andre was a giant both in, and out of, the ring. Great man.

    Wilt looks great in that pic I remember when he wanted to fight Ali.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Shit man, i bet that poor guy's wife had a rough road. When she gave birth to their first kid they yelled to him to let go of the umbilical cord and he probably fell right out.
    Hope Andre didn't have a penchant for anal, cuz that woman is definitely sporting diapers now.
    Yowza.
