Yankee Grey Too Big For Chicago

Country combo Yankee Grey (“Another Nine Minutes”) had difficulty making it to the group’s first-ever national television show taping — a performance on the Jenny Jones Show. When the band pulled into Chicago late Tuesday night in their huge tour bus, the guys discovered that the bus was too high to fit under the “El,” Chicago’s above-ground public transportation system. After driving around and around in the early morning hours trying to find an alternate route with no success, they waved down a city street cleaner, who gave the band a full escort the wrong way down a one-way street and straight to the hotel.
