HAHAHAHA! "Hootie"! I nearly spit my Pepsi...!After one night of playing Hootie (from Hootie and the Blowfish) approached me as I was breaking down my drums and gave me a $600 tip.
Darius seems like a nice guy. I've met him twice, once pre-fame (RIP Mad Monk, Wilmington NC), once post- (friend was on the lighting crew for HATB a few years back). Same congenial, friendly guy both times. But I bet he hates it when people call him Hootie...!
