    Dave Matthews Band driver denies drenching
    Tue Aug 10 2004 10:55:31 ET

    The bus driver for rock star Dave Matthews called from the road Monday to say his luxury coach was not the one responsible for dousing passengers on a Chicago River tour boat with foul-smelling muck over the weekend.

    CHICAGO TRIBUNE reports: Witnesses on the architectural sightseeing cruise told police they saw a long black tour bus dump liquid waste Sunday afternoon as their boat crossed under the Kinzie Street bridge.

    About two-thirds of the passengers seated on the upper deck of Chicago's Little Lady were soaked with the "brownish-yellow" substance.

    One witness gave Chicago police an Oregon license plate number that belongs to the 2003 Monaco Royale Coach driven by Jerry Fitzpatrick, who has been Matthews' tour bus driver for three years.

    Fitzpatrick confirmed he was in Chicago with Matthews, whose band played the second of two shows at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin later that night. But the driver said he was parked in front of the Peninsula Hotel, 108 E. Superior St., when the waste rained down from the bridge several blocks away.

    "There is no way I could be responsible for that," Fitzpatrick said from downstate Effingham. "I haven't emptied the tank for days. Besides, we are very cautious about how we do that sort of thing."

    To bolster his case, Fitzpatrick coaxed Sgt. Paul Gardner of the Effingham Police Department to inspect the bus. He then gave Gardner his cell phone to tell a reporter that the tank was nearly full.

    "One of the strangest requests I've ever had, that's for sure," Gardner said.

    A publicist for the Dave Matthews Band issued a statement Monday night saying the group's management had "determined that all of the buses on our tour were parked at the time of this incident."

    Type of boat involved = Ferry

    What happened to boat = Shit on

    Average Dave Matthews fan = Fairy

    Anyone who's ever bought a "Dave" CD = Shit on

    This is a prime example of the existance of Pi in everything we do.

    i've never unerstood why people hated on dave mathews.
    i like that guy, he's funny.
    dude makes run of the mill music for run of the mill people. some of them are douche bags, some of them are folks that just don't care that much, and some of them just have a thing for black fiddle players. no big deal.

    there are a whole lot more 'offensive' or 'annoying' artists in out there. like 'da band' for instance. that bitch with the sunglasses was all day wack. jada kiss is real annoying too. wyclef, anyone?!

    I don't think it's him that people hate. Fan bases ruin reps for a lot of really good artists.. and ignorant as that is I know I'm guilty of feeling that way.

    "Dude, did you hear the new Dave? How totally decent was that? So good. Hey, have you guys seen my cut-off abercrombie cargo shorts and birkenstocks anywhere? I totally can't put off a rustic vibe without them and my Dave/Buffet mix..."

    i totally understand that, alot of his fans are jerkoffs, i just dont feel a need to hate him cause the people who like him suck. i have a sneaking suspicion he realizes what kind of jerkoffs are into him.
    the thing is, i think people that really like dave mathews don't actually like music very much at all. i think they just like smoking weed, drinking, and trying to bang freshman and they've found that dave mathews makes such things easier. DM is like phish for people who shower and prefer earthen tones to tie-dye....kind of like the 'graduate school' of college stoner music.

    I disagree, DMB isn't the "graduate school" of jam-band music- it's the high school suburban hippie music.

    I live in one of those high-tax-bracket northeastern suburbs with good schools and hippies who wear hemp sweatshirts and smoke weed in their BMWs. Dave Matthews plays in my city a couple times a year and the entire social set goes to every show: jocks, stoners, preps, even the teachers go.

    I think it's stupid to not like music because of the surrounding subculture. However, I never liked that music (it's like watered down, easy listening blues-rock). I also cultivate a deep and abiding disdain for the Dave Matthews Band social set. Basically what I'm getting at is that I don't give a shit either way.

    In all, I find it hilarious that they dumped crap on chicagoans.

    I don't like them persoanlly, but the guy is a sick song writer and the drummer is amazing as well. At least he's putting time and effort into his music, unlike a lot of music that's being made now.

    I think you hit the nail on the head here seeks
    I've heard rumors of a 3 days music festival that Dave headlines annually which is nothing but a outdoor smokefest and an excuse for people to camp and be wasted for a weekend
    I think it takes place someplace around Seattle ... or that general area (don't ask me I'm not American)
