Having attended a show recently, the band’s lead singer closed their set with his usual mantra of “tip your bartender, tip your friends, tip your mom and remember, life is too cheap to drink short wine,” and then advised the crowd to do this:
“If you’ve been drinking, call a cab. It’s four thousand dollars cheaper.”
Rock stars and rock singers can take the stage as their own personal platform on occasion, endorsing or urging fans to support a cause or raise their voices in opposition to something.
But to have a singer, especially one honored by the Georgia General Assembly for his work with the homeless and other charitable endeavors, give such a warning is fairly unique. Not to mention that it’s also safer not to get behind the wheel after having a few.
Frankly, that’s really good advice — especially from a band called Drivin’ n Cryin’.
