The members of 311 celebrated the 29th birthday today (Feb. 17) of guitarist Tim Mahoney last night (Feb. 16) with three hours of bowling and partying at Hollywood Star Lanes.
Everyone in attendance -- including many longtime friends, girlfriends, and associates of the band -- wore special iron-on patches of Mahoney holding a bowling ball.
The group was divided into six co-ed teams, and after a two-game competition the winning team (which included your’s truly) was awarded special trophies commemorating the event.
The band’s co-manager, Peter Raspler, threw the high game of the night, an impressive 198.
311 is currently putting finishing pre-production touches, at their Burbank, CA, studio, on the 14 or so songs pegged for their upcoming fifth studio album for Capricorn Records, which is tentatively due in stores Oct. 5.
