Bus breaks down
Future rock stars, take note: If you’re gonna travel the country to tour, you may want to ensure the bus you charter is fully maintained and doesn’t break down on the way to your next show. That’s what happened to Machine Head just before their show in Portland Saturday. The band released a statement saying that they had to cancel their show with All That Remains and Dethklok in Portland because they were broke down on the side of the road. The band had to miss a few shows earlier this month because front man Robb Flynn underwent surgery for a hernia. Just a reminder: to take care of your ride and yourself.
