Rock Star Invents New Way of Drinking, Inhales
April 11th, 2008
Rock stars are known for their substance- and bodily-based explorations, notably Ozzy Osbourne snorting ants and Led Zepelin and their fish ballyhoo. Jeff Shapiro, guitar player for the band Blue Million Miles, made rock and roll history at Sputnik on South Broadway last night.
After seeing the bands Overcasters and Widowers at the Falcon, he and his crew of hoodlums and do-wrongs decided to celebrate their night of shenanigans with a round of whiskey shots for all. Shapiro, either in a moment of creativity or blinding passion or both, forwent the typical whiskey shooting protocol (tip head back, shoot down throat into stomach, writhe around into post-shot trauma) and instead inhaled it into his lungs.
“OH MAN, did you see it just came out of his nose?!” recalled an onlooker. Friends only noticed Shapiro’s jab at creativity when he began half-spewing, half-coughing the whiskey out of his lungs.
Shapiro spent the rest of the night in the corner, likely pondering his entry into the annals of rock star history.
