War-torn Item Remembered

I've known Scott Lindsey for about 17 years now and about 11 years ago I gave him this poster which has seen LOTS of rehearsal action including bands like Cult Ceavers, Jack Ruby Gun Club, Novo, Maybe I Have a Chainsaw, The Stink, Rebel Fags, Year of the Robot and I'm sure, project-wise an ass ton of other band names.
Hail the multi-faceted Scott!
