4/4/18 – Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr.
Started a disc jockey career
And went by the name Bobby DJ.
He wasn’t very good and got violently booed and jeered and bottled off stage,
But ‘at least I followed my dream’, he could say!
Well, write, not say. One of the bottles tore through his neck and killed his voice box.
