We were there once before and it was great. 7 months later we made our trek back across the border once again. It was amazing how many fans recognized us at the airport there, I guess that’s what happens when you’re traveling with the Iron Sheik and Beetlejuice. It’s funny because the Iron Sheik always has trouble going across the border.
We got picked up at the airport and headed to our hotel which was a 5 star Sheraton, we were in line to check in and one of the guys that works there recognized the Sheik. He was from Iran, too and told the Sheik to check in at the VIP counter, so we all ran out of line and followed him. After getting Beet to his room and everyone settled in, we had to go to sound check at the Republic Nightclub.
I went downstairs and Beetle came walking over from the bar and I asked him if he had been drinking and he says, “Yeah, so what mother fucker? What’s your problem?”. I was like, Oh great, here we go, another weekend with a drunken, angry Beetlejuice. Then he asked me to come to the bar to meet his friend. So I went in there and said hello to the guy and his girlfriend and told Beet we had to leave and we went outside and then Beet got really mad at me. He said, “What the fuck is the matter with you? I’m trying to get you laid” I told him I don’t want to get laid and he said, “What’s your fucking problem?” so I told him I had a fiancee and even Sal even told him I had a fiancee and he says, “You’re an ungrateful prick” I guess I was pissing him off. Then Sal walked back into the hotel and left me out there to get verbally assaulted by someone the size of a fire hydrant.
So we finally got to the show and let me tell you, the fans in Toronto are some of the best fans we’ve ever been in front of. There are such true fans of the show, they listen to Howard Stern, Miserable Men and every show on Howard’s channels, they love it all. Hardcore fanage up North.
Later that night I went back to my room, and ended up breaking my front tooth AGAIN. I spent the night calling the bookers to find me a Dentist for the next morning, which they did and now I’m stuck with a Canadian tooth. I was walking to the elevator to go to the Dentist and I had a great idea. I called Shuli and asked him if he wanted to take a ride with me, but it didn’t work. Who the fuck would want to spend a Saturday sitting in a Dentist’s office while their friend had his tooth fixed? I thought maybe I would have caught him while he was stoned and he would want to go for a ride, but that wasn’t the case. Just like a pot head to be sober the one time you need him not to be.
Saturday night we had another great show, kicked some fucking ass and had to get up really early on Sunday to fly back to NYC, getting through customs is a real bitch so we had to leave extra early. Sal was bitching because there were only 2 people working at the American Airlines counter so he started yelling out in line, “Come on already!!” which is not a good thing to do when you’re trying to get through customs. So then he said he was going to try the self check in and we told him you couldn’t do that if you have bags to check in and he insisted that you could do it and drop your bags off after. We told him no way, but he insisted and then got out of line. Turns out we were right and then he had to get back into an even longer line to retrieve his baggage tags. We were laughing so hard at him, even Beetlejuice called him an idiot.
We finally got on the plane and headed home, only Sal loves to take a shit on a plane. It was an 18 row plane with one bathroom and Sal spent 25 minutes in the bathroom. I’m sure the next person to use it had a great story to tell over dinner that night. We got home and got to the city early and went to dinner, me and Beetlejuice had the T Bone steak and they gave him the bigger steak even though the fucker can’t chew with his two god damn teeth. Maybe when the rest of my teeth fall out I’ll get that kind of respect.
We got a lot of big shows coming up, check out RevBobLevy.com I’ll be on Howard Stern this week, so be sure to listen.
