HOOTIE!!!!!!!! Brings me back to High School!

Anyhow the illness is Staph!

"Hootie & the Blowfish are again delaying the start of their summer tour as lead singer Darius Rucker recovers from a staph infection in his left knee.

Rucker, 41, has undergone three surgeries to clear the infection and is still trying to rehabilitate the knee, the band said in a statement Tuesday."

Gah, I just NEVER liked them. I lived in Columbia, SC when they were in their "prime," and you couldn't turn on the T.V. or radio without hearing them.

Hootie seems like the kind of dude that would like to flip that stool upside down and sit on it with three of his 'closest' buddies.

word is she got too fat to fit into the clothes they bought for the tour. no seriously, she is on the outs with her manager and had lackluster ticket pre-sales. too bad for her, i guess.

Back around '86, there was a little under 21 club in Lake Forest (Calif) that we used to hang out at during the summer, Christmas break, etc... the owner was good friends with CC Deville, so he used to hang out there ALLLL the time. Back then, we thought it was SUPER cool, but now? I'm thinkin whatta perv, since everyone there was jailbait!
