SXSW Video: Dudes Fighting Over A Foo Fighters Drum Stick

Tuesday night at the Foo Fighters gig at Stubb's, which Rocks Off only heard, drummer Taylor Hawkins through a drum stick out into the crowd, as per the norm for the smiley rock skinsman.

But the best part was hearing about what happened after the stick hit the crowd. Bill Jensen, Director of New Media for Village Voice Media, was next to the fight that broke out over said stick.

Thankfully, the fracas didn't end in bloodshed, just the stick's being broken in half, in King Solomon fashion as to avoid death and dismemberment.

It's just a stick, dudes. Where do you think you are, Houston? Also, why fight a chick for a piece of wood a man has just sweated on for 30 minutes?
