Blabber - PUDDLE OF MUDD’s January 30 concert at The Adelphia Music Hall in Marietta, Ohio ended abruptly when the band’s lead singer, Wes Scantlin, walked off stage after berating an audience member for “stealing” his house. According to WQLZ.com, Scantlin stopped the show in the middle of a song to go off on someone in the crowd. He said (see video below): “This motherfucker right here stole my motherfucking house and now he’s standing right fucking in front of me laughing at me. And he fucking figures I’m a fucking joke. This motherfucker right here. This motherfucker right here. Get his ass on camera. Right. Get his ass on camera. Get his ass on camera. This is the dog. Right here. This is the motherfucker right here. This guy stole my fucking house.” Scantlin then put his jacket on and walked off stage. Scantlin was arrested in January for the second time in less than a month, this time for trespassing in and vandalizing a house that used to belong to him. According to TMZ, Scantlin returned to the house — which he lost to foreclosure last year — and was using a hatched to destroy parts of it. He allegedly trashed audio electronics, surveillance cameras and an alarm system while inside the home on January 9. TMZ captured footage of Scantlin being led out of the home in handcuffs, telling police, “Come on, this is my house, man.”
Not great, Bob! If you’ve been following the blog for some time, you would know 2 things: 1) Puddle of Mudd still performs, and 2) the lead singer, Wes Scantlin, is all sorts of fucked up. Not in the “ha ha that’s funny way” but in the “yep, take him in your death pool, this guy is a needle away from death on any given day”.
He’s fresh off of blowing a .310 and then just a week later, arrested for another DWI. Somewhere along the way he lost his house, smashed a bunch of shit, and then got a cocaine possession charge and a domestic violence charge. He should be in the looney bin, not singing/slurring his way through Blurry in front of 12 people at the Kentucky state fair. But hey, that’s the rock n roll life style for you. Some guys make it to the top, other guys become “hey remember that guy from that band, yeah, he’s claiming random dudes at dive bars stole his house”.
What would be real funny is if Wes wasn’t even fucked up during that show, and the guy who did foreclose his house truly was right there in the front row of the crowd. Probably very unlikely, but would be really funny.
