Puddle Of Mudd Abandon Frontman Wes Scantlin Mid-Set
Lately, Wes Scantlin, frontman for early-’00s nu-metal also-rans Puddle Of Mudd, has been on one hell of a downward spiral. There have been weird arrests and one very strange stage moment where he accused a fan of stealing his house. And now it seems like Scantlin’s own band has turned against him. During a recent show in the UK city of Doncaster, the rest of the band stormed offstage during Scantlin’s mid-show meltdown, leaving him alone onstage. The fan-made video below opens with Scantlin flipping off his bandmates, and it ends with him trying to talk into a turned-off mic as the venue plays music over the PA and the crowd boos. Watch it below, via Loudwire.
Honestly, though, if you go see Puddle Of Mudd in 2016, shouldn’t you half-expect some shit like this to happen? They’ve played more shows since that one, apparently without incident.
