Singer Of Tribute Band Catches Fire During Set – But Keeps Playing!
Rock’n’roll tribute band Hairball from Minnesota went viral this week… but perhaps for the wrong reason.
Vocalist Bobby Jensen – doing his best Paul Stanley impersonation – caught fire during the band’s set in Sioux City, Iowa, but kept playing while the roadcrew valiantly attempted to put his flaming hair out.
Following a pyrotechnic mishap, Bobby hair goes up in smoke, causing band members and crew to rush the stage and put out his barnet – and he doesn’t miss a step. Seriously, he doesn’t even stop playing.
“I knew right away,” he told the Des Moines Register. “I knew right away when the fire hit my back that I was on fire. I just knew stand there, keep playing. … I knew if I had ran, they had to chase a guy on fire.”
Luckily there was no bodily harm done, although Bobby did say that his clothes now stink.
