Post Blues Traveler guy gets busted, tons of guns

Just heard on Fox, they pulled him over doing 112 mph, found 9 handguns and a few shotguns located in 1/2 a dozen hidden compartments. Car was equipped with flashing lights and a PA system. He told cops all this was in case of a natural disaster.

Blues Traveler
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




Quote:
Blues Traveler is an American alternative rock/blues rock/jam band formed in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1983. They are probably best known to general audiences from their 1994 hit songs "Run-Around" and "The Hook".

As of 2007, the group comprised of singer and harmonica virtuoso John Popper, guitarist Chan Kinchla, drummer Brendan Hill, bass guitarist Tad Kinchla and keyboardist Ben Wilson. Tad Kinchla and Ben Wilson joined the band following the death of original bassist Bobby Sheehan in 1999 of a drug overdose in New Orleans.

Overview

While Blues Traveler is best known among fans for their improvisational live shows, the general public is most familiar with the group from their fourth studio album Four. Released in 1994, the two singles "Run-Around" and "Hook" gained mainstream radio popularity.

Blues Traveler's subsequent releases were not as successful as the quintuple platinum sales of Four, though the band has maintained a loyal fanbase from the beginning of their career. Their albums with A&M in the later 1990s include Straight on Till Morning and Bridge.

The group signed with Sanctuary Records and released Truth Be Told on August 5, 2003. Their latest album, ¡Bastardos!, was released on September 13, 2005 by Vanguard Records.

Sheehan's death in 1999 and Popper's struggle with obesity put a damper on the group's success, and A&M dropped the band after low sales of their 2001 album Bridge. However, the band took this transition period as an opportunity to start in new directions musically. Popper, who at one point weighed in at a dangerous 420 pounds, had gastric bypass surgery in 2000 and is no longer obese.

John Popper was arrested near Ritzville, Washington on Wednesday, 7 March 2007(Read more)after the vehicle he was riding in was clocked going 111 mph. The vehicle belonged to Popper although it was driven by a friend.

Inside the black Mercedes SUV, officers found a cache of weapons and a small amount of marijuana. A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments. Inside those compartments were four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife.

They also found a Taser and night vision goggles. Popper told officers he collected weapons. The vehicle also had flashing emergency headlights, a siren and a public address system. Popper indicated to troopers that he had installed these items in his vehicle because (in the event of a natural disaster) he didn't want to be left behind," the officers said.

Officers also recovered a small amount of marijuana and a marijuana pipe. The vehicle was seized.

Concert recordings

Blues Traveler allows and encourages fans to record and trade live performances[1], provided that no money changes hands and no profit is made.

The band has also given permission for live fan-made recordings to be hosted on the Live Music Archive. Recordings available there span from 1986 through the present day.
Trivia

Blues Traveler shared stories of their evolution as a band on the VH1 television program Behind the Music.

The band appeared in a 1995 episode of the sitcom Roseanne, as the former band of character Dan Conner. Later, the band recorded the theme song for the show.

Blues Traveler appeared as an Amish band in the film Kingpin John Popper also appeared as the announcer at the National Bowling Stadium to kick off the Reno Open.

Blues Traveler appeared as themselves in the movie Blues Brothers 2000.
They also appear on the soundtrack with the song "Maybe I'm Wrong".

On September 19, 2005, Blues Traveler played their cover of Beetlejuice's song "This is Beetle" on the Howard Stern radio show.

Blues Traveler's song "The Mountains Win Again" has been featured in a series of Busch Beer commercials in North America.

Clips of Blues Traveler's music were included in a NASCAR game for the Sony Playstation (PSX).

John Popper played harmonica on the collaboration of the cover song "Tuesday's Gone" on Metallica's Garage Inc double disc.

The Song "Dog Train", written by Sandra Boynton and recorded by Blues Traveler for Boynton's album "Dog Train", has been used in a series of commercials promoting the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.

Can never be too safe traveling throughout the terrorist infested American nowadays...afterall, national statistics indicate violent crimes are on the rise across America.
