As you all know, there have been an inordinate number of notable (and bizarre) deaths in the last few weeks. In keeping with the recently popular death tributes here at SoD, I wanted to celebrate a death that some of us remember quite fondly. The death of disco. It was thirty years ago last Sunday that disco died at a Chicago White Sox game in center field of Comiskey Park. The ensuing riot caused the White Sox to forfeit the second half of the day’s doubleheader. It remains the last American League game to be forfeited.
Pay particular attention to the local Chicago news guy and his interview of disco murderer, DJ Steve Dahl. (Between 3:14 and 4:00 on the clip below)
