We are thinking about creating a new category dedicated to Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin and comprised his monthly shenanigans to make it easier for those looking for reasons to discuss his latest endeavors. In the past three months, we’ve seen him get arrested for like the millionth time for possession; get arrested once again, for breaking into his former house; and accusing the audience of his stealing his house, which we can only assume was the one he broke into.
This time, Mr Scantlin had another on-stage meltdown and took his anger and paranoia towards the soundman in charge of their show in Pennsylvania this past Thursday 18th. and accused him of “ruining everybody’s night.” You can watch several videos of the incident below, but to summarized what he said, he accused the soundman of having a personal vendetta against them:
“We don’t want this show to be about anger, okay?” Wes said. “We don’t. This soundman, guy, whoever he is, he does not like PUDDLE OF MUDD very much.”
“You’re about to waste everybody’s time, mister sound genius of the world.” He added: “This is the last song that we’re gonna play because the sound man hates PUDDLE OF MUDD. He hates us. He has done nothing but bad things through the entire show, and he has ruined everybody’s fucking night. And if you guys want to see who did it, it’s the motherfucker right there.”
At some point, Scantlin told the soundman “You might be a sociopath, man. I’ll call the entire Kansas City mafia on top of your ass right now!”
In response to the incident, the venue where the show took place, The Gin Mill & Grille, posted the following statement:
“Our goal is to bring national acts to The Gin Mill at affordable prices in a more personal midsized club venue and setting where every guest can get up close to the band. Last night, at our first concert event, folks definitely got a show. Unfortunately, maybe not totally the one they were expecting. Though those who follow PUDDLE OF MUDD know the singer has a long history of onstage meltdowns. As for The The Gin Mill & Grille, we’ll continue to bring in national acts at very affordable prices, usually 30 dollars or less for tickets purchased in-house.”
