    And let's not forget Wa Wa Nee too.

    Here's a true story - they toured Toowoomba [~16 years back] and my girlfriend's best friend got hit by their tour car, as they were leaving some radio station or something. They were trying to drive the car through a huge crowd at the radio station, and this girl got hit [more like bumped] by their car. The band visited her in hospital too.

    This was back in Aussie Bob's skating days and my red Datsun 200b and Bon Jovi T-shirt.
