You ever wondered what might be behind them retiring from touring the UK? Well read this and you might just get a hint of a reason…..then again, who knows?

Gerry_behind_barsWhen Uber Rock caught up with ex Girl guitarist Gerry Laffy recently for a chat we just had to ask him about his very own gig from hell experience, thinking we'd probably get some juicy insider details around the Kiss support slot story from when the guys walked off the tour. Nah, that would have been too predictable, so what he did get however was a story about how to deal with chronic back pain whilst touring with Duran Duran bass god John Taylor.

Marc_Angel_thmbWrathchild bassist Marc Angel has spent most of his adult life trying to reach the rock star promised land, but has never quite made it. So when we asked him for his very own Gig From Hell story did he tell us bullshit tales about missed limos, famous groupies and stints in rehab? Nah, this down to earth rock 'n' roller simply gave us a shocking vision of what happens when you got a little too close to Blackie Lawless, and the physical risks you run trying to be Gene Simmons when playing a club 'Oop North.
