This crazy tour story was written by Scott Shelby, the guitarist of the thrash metal band, Warbeast. You can check out the story, after the break.
“Warbeast was on tour with Destruction and we had a one off show with Cavalera Conspiracy one night in Detroit. After the show, and what a show it was, one of the house guys told me (Scott Shelby) that there was food for us in the front of the venue, so I told our bass player, Alan Bovee, to follow his nose and find us the food while we were out back doing after show activities. So he comes back with these huge trays of wings!!!! I mean like, more wings than I have ever seen at one time, and he said the guy just gave them to him!
We commence to slaughtering wings and beer until we were bloated, we even tried to give some to the bums digging around the lot, but they wouldn’t take any, so we put the rest under the seat in the van and took off to the next destination!
We got a few miles down the road and we get a call from the tour manager, he was screaming at the top of his lungs telling us that we took all of Max Cavalera’s chicken wings, (apparently that’s his favorite food), and of course we went, “OH SHIT”! So we turned around and brought back what was left of them with bare bones and all!
Alan, (our bass player), was freaking out and we are all laughing our asses off! We pull up and Alan sees the guy that gave him all the wings , he jumps out of the van and attacks this guy asking, “What the fuck”? The guy was off work and did not care, so we pull over to the busses and hand Alan the wrinkled up trays of scraps and tell him to go knock on the bus door and give them back to Max Cavalera! He knocks, they open the door, and he is stuttering and tripping (being a huge fan of Max for years as all of us are), he starts apologizing and showing his Sepultura tattoo on his shoulder saying he would never steal Max Cavalera’s wings and that it wasn’t his fault! While the rest of Warbeast were falling out of the van laughing our asses off, they just grab the trays and slam the door in his face! Of course we left at that point, and we always laugh about the “Max Cavalera Chicken Conspiracy”!” -Scott Shelby
