Here's What Happens When You Drive Away From The Pump With The Gas Hose Attached
Business Insider - over 4 years
Filling up the car with gas is so routine that you barely give it a thought -- until the day you drive away with the gas-pump nozzle stuck in the tank. Think you could never do something so stupid? So did the other folks who found themselves driving down the road with a gas hose trailing behind them. "I'd say this would happen at least once a month," Kirk McCauley recalls from his 31 years of owning a gas station in Beltsville, Md. "I've run people down four miles away. They had no idea the nozzle was in there." With 41 million fill-ups a day nationwide, according to figures from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), it's not all that surprising that something goes awry occasionally. No one keeps a tally on hose breakaways, but the mistake is common enough that every gas station owner has a story or two about it, and the industry builds gas pumps with the mishap in mind. Why cellphones and gas pumps don't mix You know those signs telling you not to use a cellph ...

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Rich Ward
    FORTIES
  • 2015
    Age 46
    In 2015 Ward stated on his website that he had begun writing demos for a new Stuck Mojo release.
    More Details Hide Details In March 2016 via Blabbermouth.Com Stuck Mojo announced the release via PledgeMusic.com their seventh studio album titled "Here Come The Infidels". Along with the new album Stuck Mojo announced the new band's lineup of Ward, Frank Fontsere and new members, Robby J. and Len Sonnier. Ward was previously married to professional wrestler Daffney. He has since remarried, and he and his wife Julie live in the Atlanta area.
  • THIRTIES
  • 2008
    Age 39
    In early 2008, Stuck Mojo signed with Napalm Records and re-released Southern Born Killers along with three new tracks.
    More Details Hide Details The album was released internationally on February 29, 2008, and on March 4, 2008, in the U.S. In late 2008, the band released "The Great Revival" overseas, and in the United States, it was released on January 13, 2009. Some critics disliked the direction of the album, and reviews were mixed.
  • 2006
    Age 37
    Stuck Mojo today is known most for their 2006 song, "Open Season", which sparked controversy in the American media in general.
    More Details Hide Details "Open Season" is part of the album that Bonz and Ward had originally collaborated on in the reformation of Stuck Mojo, Southern Born Killers. Due to Bonz' sudden departure from the band, Ward rerecorded the album with vocalist Lord Nelson, guitarist Mike Martin, bassist Sean Delson and drummer Eric Sanders (Frank Fontsere departed in December 2005).
  • 2005
    Age 36
    Ward reformed Stuck Mojo with Bonz and Fontsere in 2005, alongside new bassist Sean Delson.
    More Details Hide Details Ward stated that he and Bonz had patched things up over recent years and regained the desire to want to write and release records. Mojo started a tour of Europe and then of the U.S. However, the reunion with Bonz only lasted into early 2006, when the band approached Bonz with an ultimatum; either enter a substance abuse rehabilitation program or he would be forced to leave the group. Substance abuse is attributed to the previously damaged relationship between Ward and Bonz, who often mentioned marijuana in the band's live show. Bonz responded with a compromise that he would work on the addiction himself. Ward cited this as too big a risk, fueled by the then-recent deaths of other musicians in metal bands. Bonz left the band and was replaced by his friend, Lord Nelson.
    In early 2005, performing under the stage name "The Duke", Ward released My Kung Fu is Good, his debut solo album with Spitfire Records, which grew from demos he had recorded the previous year and performances at the Atlantis Music Conference in Atlanta, Ga.
    More Details Hide Details The album received positive reviews, with Billboard magazine stating, "Evolution and growth that exceeds most of the rock acts currently cluttering the airwaves." In 2011, he joined Metal supergroup Adrenaline Mob playing rhythm guitar but he left in early 2012 to focus on other projects.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1999
    Age 30
    In 1999, Ward formed Sick Speed, with singer and guitarist Dale Steele, Mojo bassist Dan Dryden and Mojo drummer Frank "Bud" Fontsere.
    More Details Hide Details The same year, Ward met World Wrestling Entertainment (then known as the World Wrestling Federation, or WWF) superstar, Chris Jericho, backstage at a WWF show. The two bonded over their love of 1980s heavy metal and Ward invited Jericho to join his side band Fozzy Osbourne which would later transform into the "mock rock" band Fozzy. While the band was originally supposed to be just a fun side project, the band was courted by Metal Blade Records and filmed a "mockumentary" that aired on MTV. The show provided a fictional back story about the band, alleging that the members of Fozzy had, in fact, written many of the more popular 1980s metal songs, but that an unfair contract had forced the band to remain in Japan for the past 20 years, allowing other acts to take credit for the compositions. Jericho went by the alter ego of "Moongoose McQueen," and adamantly denied that McQueen and Jericho were the same person.
  • 1995
    Age 26
    After finally receiving a recording contract with Century Media Records, Mojo released its debut album, Snappin' Necks in 1995.
    More Details Hide Details Although the album found little mainstream success, it went on to influence many popular Nu metal bands of today, such as Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit. In 1996, in preparation for their first overseas tour, the band released the European-only EP, Violated. That same year, Stuck Mojo released its second album, Pigwalk. While the band's second full-length album sold in similar numbers as the previous one, however, many critics and musicians consider this album to be a defining milestone of rap-metal. In 1998, Mojo released Rising, its most commercially successful release. From its beginnings, the band went through a number of lineup changes. As time went on, tensions within the group mounted, primarily between Ward and Bonz. Ward has stated in interviews that it once escalated to the point of a physical confrontation between the two while on tour in Europe. At one point, they weren't even talking to each other, only having one common goal, the success of the band.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1989
    Age 20
    In 1989, Ward formed Stuck Mojo along with bassist Duane Fowler and front man, Bonz.
    More Details Hide Details The first six years of the band consisted of touring clubs on the East Coast of the United States. When recalling this time of his life, Ward speaks of sleeping in his rehearsal space to save money.
  • CHILDHOOD
