OK- anyone know where I am going with this? Frank Zappa and a flare gun is part of the story. How about smoke over Lake Geneva? Deep Purple.

The burning down of the Montreax casino was an inspiration for one of rock's iconic songs. Smoke on the Water.

Go ahead and rock out!! Cool

Until I did a google search I thought the south shore casino was the Montreax. Montbleu, Montbleu, Montbleu. OK I got it. Shows how my memory's slipping away.

Dave you are correct about the similarity. MontBleu casino located at Lake Tahoe..... Montreax casino located at Lake Geneva.

If MontBleu burns down we may have an ispiration for a new rock song. Smile
