Deliciously weird - Greg Beato's LA Weekly profile of a 35 year old roadie is full of weirdness, but this is the sentence that tipped me over the edge: "I started doing so much cocaine, my dick was completely useless," Hickey recalls. "So when girls would come around and say they were willing to do anything to meet the band, I just started throwing meat at them. That’s what they had to do to earn their backstage pass. I’d make them strip down and stand in the corner while we pelted them with the deli tray. After a while, it became like this daily event. All the bands would stop sound check and gather round, just to watch me throw meat at some chick."
