World's wildest marching band?

It's one thing when Led Zeppelin trashes a hotel room. It's another when a college marching band lays waste to its temporary on-campus digs.

But that's apparently the kind of crazy outfit that the Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band is. Authorities say between $30,000 and $50,000 worth of damage was done to the "Band Shak," a trailer that served as the group's office.

The facts of who destroyed the place -- and why, and whether the trailer was even habitable when the band took over -- remain to be seen, despite the San Francisco Chronicle's damning story. But, man, I wanna party with those guys. Kinda.

P.S. Where did the Chron dig up this johnny-no-fun Stanford alum?

"They've always had a reputation for a being a bunch of alcoholics -- they all get drunk and start breaking things," said Russ Berman, who graduated in 1997 and lives in Mountain View. "I'm all for partying, having fun, but there comes a point where you go a little too far. People should pay for their actions."
