In a continuation of what might become a WOW Report obsession with Donny Tourette and the Towers of London, we relate this story from Popbitch:
A couple of years ago, the Towers played a small bar in Hoxton, London. A drunken fight ensued, the bar was trashed, the cops were called and the band were taken to a police cell. When the time came, Donny was entrusted to make the band’s one phone call. Did he call his lawyer, mum, manager? Er, no. His one call was back to the bar to ask the barman to get the phone number of the girl he’d been chatting up all night.
And at The Sun today, it’s reported that the band played a set at the 100 Club in Soho in which originality, strong vocals, and professionalism were absent. Donny supposedly staggered around onstage like a drunk and threw the microphone at the crowd to get them interested. Towers bassist said, “We were only performing at 20 percent tonight because we’d been drinking since 4PM.”
