Two men and one woman were wounded in a shooting at the Beacon Pub Friday night. Witnesses say they never heard a fight or an argument, although the shooting happened right in the middle of karaoke.

What song was being performed when the gunman opened fire?

Was it rap music?

No. It was this:

One of them must have been a Bon Scott fan.

This news made me sad not just for the victims, but for the best karaoke night in Seattle. I love the Beacon.

I had no idea that The Young People were coming to Beacon Hill. Back when I was the co-host of the popular cable access program called "Hootenanny" (with the incomparable Sylvia O. Stayformore) we did a show at the Beacon Pub. I performed the Mike Flowers version of "Light My Fire", and not a single person pulled out a firearm.

Of course, I was much younger then, and had no qualms about public nudity, no matter what the liquor laws said. Maybe that's why we didn't have any shootings.
