Back in 1992, the pair hired motorbikes to drive from the west to east coast of the US back, and had guns pointed at them after they took a wrong turn in Los Angeles.
Speaking on his new podcast with Jools Holland, Vic recalled how they had stopped at a red light before being threatened by another driver.
Vic – real name Jim Moir – said: “We went on a doomed motorcycle trip in California in ’92. We got there, we hired a couple of motorbikes.
“I had been reading a book about the Bloods and the Crips and the gangs in Los Angeles, and we made a mistake.
“We did a wrong turn and ended up in the middle of Compton and a big van turned up next to us at the lights and a fellow pointed a gun at us through the window and said, ‘Get out of here’.
“We said: ‘We are just waiting for the lights to change and we are off’.”
Addressing Bob, he continued: “You were very casual about the whole thing. I had read this book and I was terrified.
“We didn’t actually go anywhere because it started raining. It was the floods of ’92. We stayed in a house in Laurel Canyon for three weeks with our motorcycles outside.”
Bob added: “We were going to cross west to east coast on motorcycles but when we returned them to the hire place I think we had done 19 miles on them.”
