>an unidentified white male assailant in his twenties. The show was
abruptly
>cancelled and the police and paramedics were called in. The rampage
began
>when this unidentified man started trouble in the bar area, hassling
regular
>customers as well as a table full of skinheads. A fight broke out and
the
>unidentified man went flying into a violent frenzy, trying to throw a
bar
>stool at the 86 year old owner/operator- Mr. T, as well as throwing
blows at
>anyone in his immediate path. Booking manager, Rick Collins and Frank
>stepped
>into the melee to try to break it up. Frank had subdued the unidentified
man
>and was ejecting him from the club when the stabbing occurred. Two
females
>had witnessed the event. Frank was stabbed 8 times and remains in stable
>condition at County Medical where he is facing the loss of one eye. He
has
>no
>medical insurance and is in need of help. Meanwhile, there is no report
on
>the whereabouts of the unidentified assailant. He was last seen fleeing
from

much

loss
>of another rock'n'roll venue due to the thoughtless and plain stupid
actions
>of a man who has basically ruined the lives of more people than he can
>imagine. If you have any information leading to the arrest and
conviction of
