Goodrich Gevaart, aka Daddy’s Little Party Boi, is our favorite party boy. He’s also an expert American Picker. This week’s discovery is a previously unearthed tour rider from music biggest party boi, GG Allin! Party!
Look if you know Daddy’s Little Party Boi, you know the place I party the most: Estate Sales. I love going through a house full of dead people’s stuff they couldn’t take to heaven (or hell, or the pet cemetery they’re buried in). Usually I score things like area rugs, cooking utensils, or non functional typewriters, but recently I made a big score when I found a cardboard box that had the words MY DICKHEAD SON’S ROCK AND ROLL HORSESHIT written on the outside. Some mansion in Wilmette, Il is a dead father who didn’t care for his son’s rock n roll archiving, but for a cool $20 I scored some sweet artifacts. Every so often I’ll put my favorites up on this here website.
The first artifact is a GG ALLIN tour rider from 1992. Man, you can almost smell the feces on this piece of paper. As far as I know I’ve never seen something like this anywhere else. But this is for sure a real document and now that I have this box of “rock and roll horseshit” I’m pretty much a certified rock historian. NBD.
