The following was posted in JR’s tour diary on October 31st 2002:
In this band you NEVER know what is gonna happen. It is a group made up of very unusual, unpredictable characters! Tonight we played in Fuerth Germany and the unexpected happened. In an award winning move at the end of our last song, John Myung Bass player extroadinaire, decided to go over to front man Labrie and TACKLE him football style, with his bass guitar on!!! THe two went down to the floor and rolled for a while while the other members of the group (me included) watched in complete amazement!!! It seems someone (who will go unmentioned) dared JM to do it with cash on the line! Lesson learned here. Don’t EVER dare John Myung to do anything because it could happen!!!! Ben the lighting man gave John the “Most Out of Character Award” for the tour!! Unbelievable… Write this day down. It was bizarre.
