I saw Red and Jimmy Martin, both possibly drinking, having a little (un)friendly bet backstage at the Budweiser Festival in Columbus. They were competing to see who could play the most encores.....and it showed on stage, cuz' they pushed it past all limits.

The Osbournes were livid, cuz' they were on next. The Country Gentlemen (who were inviting Eddie Adcock back for a gig) were livid AND BLUNT. Adcock wanted to punch Martin in the nose!

Apparently that stuff happened all the time with Allen and Martin.

Great music though.
