We turned the corner of the temple of the dog, just as the spirit of Andrew Wood Thru Fade Away with a Gentle Groove. We could see no sign of the Grunginator, just a Man In The Box balanced precariously, as if in Madness, on One Step Beyond the thirteenth.
Remembering Angry Appearing at the Whiskey a Go-Go
I was feeling rather drained, plum knackered in fact, and was about to sit on the temple of the dog steps, but then Dizzy exclaimed: ‘Quick, there’s no time to rest, Angry was supposed to be on stage at the Whiskey a Go-Go an hour ago.’
Rushing Angry to the Whiskey a Go-Go
So off we rushed back to the 1980s, and arrived at the Whiskey a Go-Go in next to no time, pronto.
The crowd had been getting restless, but they let out a great cheer as Angry took to the stage. Including members of Guns N’ Roses and Motley Crue, who would take trash metal into the 1990s and beyond.
Angry had a surprise for us all at the end when he magicked a puppy out of his boot, telling the crowd it was an iconic gift from the temple of the dog. I never saw where Angry got it; maybe I was taking forty winks at the time.
It had been hard work, and damn right dangerous at times, but it was rewarding to think we’d played a small part in saving trash metal.
