Former Nothingface/Hellyeah/Danzig bassist Jerry Montano was reportedly involved in a fight early this morning with country musician John Rich (of Big and Rich fame). Police arrived at the hotel around 4:28 AM and are currently investigating the incident, although no arrests have been made at this time. Neither musician has pressed charges against one another.

This is not the first time Montano has been the source of controversy, he was relieved of his duties from the supergroup Hellyeah last year after becoming drunk and disorderly at the band's album release party and making offensive statements regarding firearms. He was replaced by former Damageplan bassist Bob "Zilla" Kakaha.

As far as country goes, big and rich ain't that bad, but as far as music in general goes, they suck anyway haha.

I think I pretty much agree with the wise words of Wiggles on this one.

I'm not sure what caused the fight, but all I know is that John hit Jerry in the face with a beer bottle. Stupid.
