Every week on The Incident, I uncover a secret about the musicians you love. It could be a story from the road, a tale from inside the recording studio, or just one of the crazy things that happens to a working musician.
This Week: Ron Hawkins is a member of The Lowest of the Low and has put together a great solo career over the last decade.
While on tour with The Low, Hawkins learned something interesting about his road manager. This guy can sleep through anything. Maybe you can relate. I once had a friend who could fall asleep leaning against a tree!
The Ron Hawkins Incident took place on a Lowest of the Low tour, deep in cottage country in the dead of night. The guys were settling down after a rowdy gig when road manager John decided he needed cigarettes at 3:30 a.m. Drummer Dave Alexander went after the surly manager. When he caught up to John, the two paced along with only the moon to light their way. One man tripped and hit the other -- they both landed in the ditch.
