Wolfmother Frontman Arrested
Andrew Stockdale has an altercation whilst singing The Beatles
Rock News Desk reports that the Stockdale spent a night in jail at the weekend after drunkenly forcing his way onto a pub stage then brawling with bouncers.
Stockdale, 35, was apparently drinking with friends at the Archive Bar near his home in Brisbane, Australia on Sunday, while a local band were performing a set.
He interrupted them and demanded to be allowed to play a song, then sang a cover of the Beatles' Let It Be with the addition of a little strong language.
According to the report he had to be forcibly removed from the stage, and was told he wouldn't be served any more drinks. When security staff asked him to leave he sat on the floor and refused to move, at which point the police were called.
He was arrested and charged with being drunk and disorderly, failing to leave licensed premises and resisting removal from licensed premises.
Stockdale was fined $350 at Brisbane Magistrate's Court. His representative Noel Barbi said: "Mr Stockdale simply had too much to drink."
