An outdoor benefit concert at the Hotsprings Fairgrounds in Dead Valley, Mx. to raise money for the deminishing Flame-Tailed Lizard went a rye when Buster Steels, lead guitar player for the Pine Box Band mistakenly plugged his electric guitar into a super-charged 500,000 volt transformer instead of his portable 9 volt D.C. Jam Box.
Buster suffered 3rd degree burns over his lower extremities and cremation over the rest of his body and was pronounced disintegrated at the scene by curious on-lookers.
Lead singer for the Pine Box Band, Shank Williams was also critically injured when he tried to extinguish the super-charged electrical current by dowsing it with cold liquid from a rented beer-keg.
Police Chief, Judd Rumchuger had the following to say about the band's shocking experience.
"I didn't notice anything wrong at first. When all the sparks started going off we all thought that it was the pyrotechnics. The crowd, 150,000 drunken, crazy
fans started cheering and yelling and enjoying the light-show but then, the super-charged 500,000 volt transformer exploded and killed everybody within a hundred-yards of the stage. At that point, the crowd became very unruly because the concert wasn't going as scheduled. Thousands of young-people started rioting and demanding their money back. They completely tore-up the fairgrounds, all the amusement rides and concession stands. I've never seen anything like it in all my 25 years of police work."
The Dead Valley, City Council has launched a full investigation into the matter, and to see if the fans should get their money back. Some on the council said,"the pyrotechnics from the electrocution were better than any of the music they've ever heard from the Pine Box Band anyway, so why should anybody get their money back?"
