Dropkick Murphys were involved in a fatal crash yesterday (Nov. 16) after the band's tour bus struck a pedestrian.
Celtic punk innovators Dropkick Murphys have always been proud of their Boston roots, but they truly put that pride into action by raising money for victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings. The Murphys released the 'Rose Tattoo: For Boston Charity EP' soon after the bombings, and the band has just donated over $300,000 to a total of 60 victims.
You never know what you're going to get when you invite the crowd up onstage with you for a performance. What the Dropkick Murphys got during their recent set in New York was at least one audience member who made his way onstage and began performing the Hitler salute as the band rocked out a cover of AC/DC's 'T.N.T.'
