Delaware Music Festival, Take Two: The Last Dinosaur

The Last Dinosaur is like the "Iron" Mike Sharpe of the Delaware music scene. I'm not saying they're Jobbers by any means; on the contrary, it seems that, like Sharp, they've been hovering around so much in the press and on the scene that they don't get the credit they deserve.

And like Dinosaur, "Iron" Mike was pretty rad. The Canadian grappler's loud and pointless growling in the ring was way cool, as is Josh Hensley's commanding frontman croon. Sharpe had that "injury" (wink wink) that allowed him to wear a loaded forearm brace to bash opponents with (yet he never won?) while Dinosaur has Dan Horsey's blaring guitar.

"Iron" Mike Sharpe: "Canada's Greatest Athlete."
But thanks to performances like the ones they put on at Mojo Main, World Cafe Live at the Queen and elsewhere around the region, that could change real soon.

Let's see if the Last Dinosaur can have their big breakout moment, like "Iron" Mike did when he won the 1984 NWA Mid America Heavyweight title, or when he teamed with Hulk Hogan in Japan in 1984, or when he took on Jake "The Snake" Roberts at Summerslam in 1990, or when he fought Bob Backlund for the WWF title in 1983. when they play the Delaware Music Festival during their 11 p.m. set on Saturday March 30. The fest takes place at the Rusty Rudder in Dewey Beach.

If not then, we're pretty sure it's going to happen at some point, and these dudes will go on to bigger matches and titles than their pro wrestling doppelganger ever did.
