The local "combat sport" scene -- the new term to combine the sports of boxing and mixed martial arts -- heats up this weekend with local shows tonight at Patriot Center and the D.C. Armory, part of a resurgence of such events in the area that will continue throughout the month.
"To me the records were just a starting point," recalls John Paul Jones, "The most important thing was always the stage show. So many great nights. At our worst we were still better than most. At our best we could just wipe the floor with the lot of them. It was just a very good live band."
