Wes Scantlin Abandoned By Band On Stage

Ouch, the sad Puddle Of Mudd saga continues (or maybe now comes to an end finally) as Wes Scantlin's band members abandoned him onstage during a set in Doncaster.

For some reason he decides to stay, sitting there staring at the crowd and occasionally mumbling incoherently. A video of the debacle has come online, courtesy of YouTube user mrmahoosive, which can be seen below.

Somebody in the crowd really wasn't pleased, repeating a constant scream of "Fuck you Wes, fuck off Wes, you're a disgrace!" (because apparently everyone didn't hear him the first seven or twelve times). The video's uploader comments:

"After a drunken start to a half gig in Doncaster, Wes Scantlin announced the band not playing together after he couldn't perform. He also kept waffling on about dan murano(?) stealing his house/money? He sat on stage trying to karaoke with the music after the band couldn't perform the rest of their set."

Motley Crue Management Dismiss "False Rumours"

Tenth Street Entertainment — which represents MÖTLEY CRÜE — has shot down as (at least partially) "blatantly false and completely unfounded" Internet rumors that CRÜE will headline a festival-type tour called "Cruefest", with support from several other artists from the Tenth Street management stable, including BUCKCHERRY, PAPA ROACH, SIXX: A.M. and DROWNING POOL. According to Tenth Street, CRÜE's April 15 press conference/announcement in Los Angeles will relate to "a few" (but presumably not all) of the following artists:


All four members of CRÜE will be present at the April 15 press conference at a location yet to be determined for what the release hyped as "by far...one of the biggest music announcements of the year!!" The band is also launching a contest in which one grand prize winner from each major city in the country will be flown to Los Angeles to cover the announcement, complete with a chance to interview the band and have the interview broadcast live. Details can be found at the official CRÜE site.

Tool's Keenan 'Near Perfect' For Alice In Chains

Travis Hay of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer has issued the following report:

Who would've thought Maynard James Keenan, the spooky singer for TOOL and A PERFECT CIRCLE, would have made a near-perfect singer for ALICE IN CHAINS? That was one of the many surprises Friday night when some of Seattle's brightest musical stars came out for a cause at Premier nightclub.

The cause was a benefit concert for victims of last year's tsunami and the stars included Ann and Nancy Wilson of HEART, NIRVANA bassist Krist Novoselic, SUPERSUCKERS, SIR MIX-A-LOT, THE CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION and others. But the brightest stars were the remaining members of ALICE IN CHAINS — drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez and guitarist Jerry Cantrell — who performed together for the first time in six years.

Novoselic acted as emcee for the show, which was put on by radio station K-Rock (KRQI-FM/96.5) and raised more than $100,000 for relief efforts. More...

Wes Scantlin of Puddle Of Mudd Slams Fred Durst

In an interview with Canada's Chart magazine, PUDDLE OF MUDD frontman Wes Scantlin unleashed on LIMP BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst.

"He doesn't write our songs, he doesn't produce our songs, he doesn't do anything for us. He doesn't do our videos anymore. He doesn't do anything for this band," Wes said. He added, "I don't know what he's doing, I don't know what the guy's like. All I know is that he's like Mr. Hollywood guy, Mr. Celebrity. Like, 'I don't hang out with anybody except Hollywood celebrities'. Every single fucking interview I've ever fucking done, I get asked about that fucking guy. I don't have anything against him, but I haven't talked to the guy in a fucking year and a half. And for me to do interviews all the time and be asked about this certain individual... People thinks he writes music with me or something. He does not do that. I just don't get it. We have nothing in common. He doesn't even call us, he has his assistant call us to congratulate us on our record. Yeah, that's how pathetic he is."
