HANOI ROCKS Busted For Drugs

January 26, 2005

According to an article in Wednesday's (Jan. 26) edition of the Finnish newspaper Ilta Sanomat, HANOI ROCKS were busted on the Norwegian border for having marijuana aboard their tour bus. When questioned about the drugs — which were present in sufficient quantity for the Norwegian authorities to prosecute — members of HANOI's touring party said that it was left on the bus by a fan even though the police sniffer dog found it on one of the 13 people on the bus during the search.

HANOI ROCKS, who were scheduled to perform in Oslo, Norway Tuesday night, are in the middle of a European tour in support of their upcoming album, "Another Hostile Takeover", tentatively due on April 30.

"Another Hostile Takeover" is the group's first album to feature guitarist Conny Bloom (SILVERGINGER 5, ex-ELECTRIC BOYS),who joined the band last year.
