CROWBAR Drama: Kirk Windstein Apologizes To His Bandmates After Airplane Incident In Europe!
Earlier this week, New Orleans sludge legends CROWBAR were on their way back home after bringing another righteous slab of devastating heaviness to Europe. According to vocalist/guitarist Kirk Windstein, the band was kicked off their plane when flying from Brussels, Belgium to New Orleans, Louisiana. Here is what Windstein posted on his Facebook page regarding this matter.
"A BIG THANKS TO TOMMY (Buckley) AND I'S "BROTHERS" FOR STANDING UP FOR US ON THE FLIGHT... GREAT... THE 3 OF U ARE CUNTS. CROWBAR AS U KNOW IT IS OVER!!!!!! FUCK OFF FAGGOTS!!! I AM CROWBAR, AND CROWBAR IS ME...HAVE FUN!!!"
"Sucks when you're sleeping, and asked to leave the plane because of something you had NOTHING to do with. Have a safe flight", commented Windstein.
He later added, "does anyone realize...? i write, sing and play guitar on stage, and in the studio... Tommy and I have been arse fucked... and I ain't happy!!!!"
Today (July 18), Windstein posted the following apology to his bandmates for flipping out at them:
"HEY Y'ALL, I WANT TO APOLOGIZE FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR THE NEGATIVE THINGS I SAID ABOUT MY BANDMATES IN CROWBAR. I LOVE EM LIKE BROTHERS, AND I HOPE WE CAN PUT THIS BEHIND US AND MOVE ON IN A POSITIVE DIRECTION. THEY ARE MY FAMILY, AND FAMILIES HAVE FIGHTS...IT DOESN'T MEAN I DON'T LOVE EACH OF THEM DEARLY. I WAS WRONG, AND I'M VERY SORRY!"
