It was 20 years ago that the St Louis Arena was imploded. Whether you called it the Arena or the Checkerdome it was a piece of St Louis history. I was there! I have a lot of fond memories of the Old Barn. Everything from Blues hockey games to the billion circuses to one of my first big concerts. Rush with their opening act Primus! It was a dump but it was our dump. FYI the ALT studios currently sit in the exact spot where the Arena was... So its like i never left
