Pit Stories: Sick Of It All Shares A Tale Of Midgets Loving Slayer
We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Sick Of It All vocalist Lou Koller shares a tale of midgets moshing in the pit:
We were on tour with Slayer, and it was Slayer, us, and Meshuggah in 1999. I believe it was in New Mexico. For some reason there was a real odd number we saw, a lot of Mexican midgets at the Slayer show. And they weren’t together. We were hanging out at the merch booth waiting to go on and we counted seven different Mexican midgets. When the show started, in the middle of the set, the Slayer fans in New Mexico were taking their shirts off, lighting them on fire, and then running around with them in the pit. That was one of the craziest things we’ve ever seen. So apparently midgets in New Mexico love Slayer.
Sick Of It All recently released their four years in the making album "Based On A True Story." You can check out an interview with Lou discussing the new album here.
