Chris "Birdman" Andersen: Cheese Kid + Tour Photos
Everyone in Denver is excited about the Denver Nuggets in the playoffs. Tonight I was watching the game with a few String Cheese Incident fans and the subject came up about Chris "Birdman" Andersen's love of live music, and especially SCI. In fact, his nickname of "Birdman" was actually inspired by the song "Birdland." The official story is that Chris got in trouble with drugs and was suspended from '06-'08 from the NBA. The Cheese kids tell a different story- Chris took a hiatus from the NBA for a couple of years so he could boogie down without anything holding him back from Cheese Tour. Word is that Chris is a great hooper, too.
Coventry has obtained some exclusive photos of the Birdman in action. Check it out:
