These stories give some of our favorite musicians the chance to entertain you in a completely different way, to let them show their unique writing style, the black side of their humor, and hopefully have as much fun when writing as you have when reading. They tell you unique, obscure, humorous stories that happened to them somewhere along their career. We post the stories exactly the way they shared them with us. THEY did all the typing for you so respect their efforts and have fun and a good laugh when reading their BEAST SIDE STORIES.
