Nightclub Bouncer Sick Of Music And Bar Fights

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some may think nightclub life is all glitz and glamour, but a New York-based bouncer says the club scene is grittier and scummier than patrons imagine.

That’s the word from Rob “The Bouncer” Fitzgerald, who mans the door at some of New York City’s hottest clubs, and has just penned a tell-all book about his experiences titled Clublife: Thugs, Drugs, And Chaos At New York City’s Premier Nightclubs (HarperCollins).

Although working at happenin’ hotspots surrounded by sexy ladies seems like a dream come true, Fitzgerald says the gig gets old after a while, especially when it comes to dealing with rowdy guys.

Fitzgerald explains, “Whenever there are big groups of coked-up, juiced-up, drunk guys at the clubs, there are always fights I have to help break up. I’ve been hit with a baseball bat and stabbed with a box cutter, so the fights get pretty intense.”

And while the testosterone overload is enough to drive any bouncer crazy, the repetitive music Fitzgerald hears night after night doesn’t help either.

He adds, “I hear the same set of songs, all the time, which is pretty annoying. I’ve had enough Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz to last me a lifetime!”
