(Added Mar. 2002) – Rumors was your stereotypical Southern rock bar. Metallica and Kiss posters on the wall and a jukebox full of Pantera. They actually had a backstage area which had this nasty old couch in it covered with stains and dirt. The promoter of the show walked in while we were mocking his couch and told us “Boys, don’t you laugh … Warrant sat there.” A priceless moment to say the least. Only in Hickory, NC can you find that sort of pride.
