A Public Enemy fan has saved the day after the group missed their ride to a gig.
The hip-hop outfit were scheduled to leave a signing event for a concert in Sheffield, England, when the cab tasked with taking Chuck D and Flavor Flav to the concert drove off without them.
Luckily, a longtime fan named Kevin Wells swung to the rescue, letting the MC’s hitch a lift in the back of his Ford Focus.
“They were such nice guys, we had a right laugh,” Wells told The Telegraph after snapping a selfie inside the tightly-packed rap-mobile. “We were chatting away, but the phone was constantly going as their management were clearly worried.”
But that didn’t prevent a moment of magic from happening.
“…as we were coming through Attercliffe, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, came on the radio,” Wells recounted. “Everyone was singing the words and rocking out in the back of my car, it was like a Wayne’s World moment. I was looking in the rear view mirror thinking, ‘Is this actually happening?’”
And if that wasn’t enough of a happy ending, Chuck D and Flavor Flav managed to reach the venue just in the nick of time… 15 minutes before Public Enemy were set to hit the stage.
Let’s hope they’re just as lucky when they come to Australia for Soundwave 2016 next year.
