Los Lonely Boys frontman Henry Garza was hospitalized yesterday after falling off the stage during their Tuesday show in Los Angeles' Downey Civic Theater. After the band's set, Garza walked towards the front of the stage to greet fans, but fell into the orchestra pit. "Brother Joey Garza quickly jumped down to his aid, and Henry was transported to the hospital," reads a note on Los Lonely Boys' Facebook page. "Doctors are observing Mr. Garza's condition to make sure the trauma has not led to significant spinal or neck injuries."

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
