    I took my girl in 1985 (I think thats right) to see Madonna at San Diego State University.

    The BB opened for her and the crowd booed them nearly their whole act.

    I only knew them from the fight for your right song at the time.

    Anyway, true story and no I wasn't there with my boyfriend. :no:

    No.

    True story.

    They had some guy doin the turn table and the three guys were just moving around without a lot of purpose.

    They either didn't have their live gig down or just didn't give a shit.
