Frontline Rewind host Les Carlsen exclaims, â€œThese are the best tour stories Iâ€™ve heardâ€, as he continues an interview with original Shout members, Chuck King (in person) and â€œvirtualâ€ Ken Tamplin (in Hawaii). Listeners are entertained with topics like: stolen clothes from a dressing room, speeding tickets in every state, train stop in the middle of Germany demanding money or else, and a 26-foot long sandwich Ken gave to KLOS radio to get music played.
Kenâ€™s eating habits were the cause of many awkward situations. Chuck states that Ken needed to eat every 15 minutes â€“â€œlike a duck.â€ Kenâ€™s need to stop landed the long-haired rockers in Grandmaâ€™s Southern Cooking (Grandma is not the image one would expect) and trapped them in the middle of a tornado while stopping at a â€œchoke and pukeâ€ diner in Pennsylvania.
The guys laughingly credit Frontline Records as the reason for the stories. If a tour budget had been provided, they wouldnâ€™t have been speeding from state to state in a broken down van, struggling to pay transportation and food costs. Rockinâ€™ tracks from It Wonâ€™t Be Long and In Your Face are weaved in between stories. Pure entertainment!
