Throwing beads my be all very well, but a band in Scotland is really gettin=
down on it (wonder if Gunter is in on this?):

Slipknot plan to shower fans with animal entrails

Slipknot are planning to throw animal entrails at the crowd during their Gi=
On The Green appearance.

The band have requested pigs' hearts and cattle intestines for next month's
concert in Glasgow.

But the idea has sparked safety concerns from council chiefs, who fear the
stunt could prompt a crush around the stage.

Gig On The Green takes place on August 24 and 25.

According to Glasgow's Evening Times., animal rights activists are behind
the plan saying the sight of a pig's heart would remind people where bacon
comes from.

During Slipknot's last tour their fans notched up a total of 45 broken ribs
and 240 stitches.

When they visited Glasgow's Virgin Megastore on a promotional visit earlier
this year, they made one fan's wish come true by spitting on him.
