Well geez, we sell out your show at Tweeter Center, just about sell out 2 nights up at Alpine Valley, and this is how you thank us?! (suntimes.com) For what the tickets cost, you think they could hire bus drivers who don't drop liquid shit on tour boats.
Originally posted by Chicago Sun-TimesA civil complaint by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the Dave Matthews Band Inc. and Stefan A. Wohl, the driver of the bus, polluted the river by illegally dumping "liquid waste'' from the septic tank of the bus. Madigan said Wohl flicked a switch behind his seat and unleashed up to 800 pounds of human waste as he drove one of the band's buses over the Kinzie Street bridge...
The raw sewage fell onto people aboard Chicago's First Lady, the city's popular architecture tour boat. More than 100 people were aboard the packed boat at the time.
The tour had been under way for 20 minutes when the sewage splashed onto the boat and into the eyes and mouths of tourists. The boat immediately returned to the dock and five people went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for tests and treatment, police said...

I also would like to know why a bus would have a switch that ejects a full load of waste while they drive. Seems like maybe an oil slick or smoke screen like in Spy Hunter might be useful, but not a waste stream. Anyone have a link to the supposed video of this that is evidence?

Thanks, Dave. We need to know if that's your feces.
I'm not a big fan of Radiohead except for a few songs off of OK Computer. However, this is an awesome move, and I downloaded the album in exchange for a $10 donation anyway. I have yet to listen to it, so I can't say if it's good or not.
