GG Allin on Ann Arbor Stories

Kevin Michael "GG" Allin's booking photo from the September 14th, 1989 Ann Arbor News.

GG Allin was a pretty extreme punk rocker known for, among other things, defecating on stage during most of his shows. After an unscheduled show at East Quad's Halfway Inn, Allin assaulted an Ann Arbor woman, and then left to continue his tour with his band, the Toilet Rockets. A local judge issued a warrant charging Allin with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. Allin was eventually apprehended by the US Secret Service in Illinois. He was brought back to Ann Arbor and plead to felonious assault. Allin served 15 months in Michigan State Prison. If you want to hear more, you're going to have to check out today's Ann Arbor Stories. But be warned, this episode has a hard R rating.

  1. You are confusing two cases. Allin was charged with misdemeanor assault for the East Quad show. His band was The Disappointments from Muskegon. Allin was charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm for a separate incident with a woman with whom Allin was involved with, who was an Ann Arbor resident.
