Steakdaddy Six consisted primarily of these five guys:

These two guys, Chris Green and Bryan St. Pere, were drummers for
a while, and we appreciated having them around...
Chris is presently tour manager for Hum. He has also managed bands like 7 Seconds, the Dambuilders, and Atari Teenage Riot.
Chris gets extra bonus points for (still) having the only Steakdaddy
Six license plate in history. Look for it in Champaign...you'll know
it if you see it!
It was at the Blind Pig in Champaign, and in the corner of the stage was a broom closet. Above the closet was a kind of transom-cabinet, and in the cabinet was a styrofoam mannequin, on all fours, as if it were climbing into the cabinet. Are you with me? After the last song, Bryan proudly stood up, fired a drumstick towards the cabinet, and it landed buried three inches deep in the mannequin...precisely where the sun doesn't shine.
More on the Buttslammarama phenomenon coming soon!
