Backstage With Baldy

Halifax – August 27th

There’s only one bad thing about a great time – it eventually has to end. Touring for The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here has been a great time. And like every great tour, it has to end somewhere, sometime. And somewhere...

Moncton – August 26th

First things first; Moncton was another casino gig, and like most casinos, the walls were lined with pictures of artists who had performed there in the past. And one of those pictures was of Dog The Bounty Hunter. Dog The...
