Criminals 'element' to open pizzeria in Ireland

March 24, 2002

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- Huey Morgan, member of the rock-funk band Fun Lovin' Criminals, is opening his own pizzeria in Dublin, Ireland.

According to the music Web site, despite a hectic schedule with his day job as the band's leading man, Morgan claims he'll be fully involved in the project.

His plans to open one in London's Convent Garden met with difficulties and had to be cancelled.

"So I'm going to open a pizza joint, DiFontaine's Pizzeria, in the middle of Dublin," said Morgan. "We have the space, we're trying to get the ovens right now. We want to make it proper, get a card game going on out the back. You have to have a back room in a pizza joint."

While one might think the Criminals' 1999 hit, "Scooby Snacks," would make a good name for an appetizer in the pizzeria, think twice. According to Gordon, the reference does reflect the reward given to famed cartoon canine, Scooby Doo, but in the song it refers to hallucinogenic drugs.
