While bands like Slayer are entrenched in ridiculous politics due to a certain member being kind of a douche, the Cro-Mags are dealings with stabbings! Hooray! Kind of!
Harley Flanagan, 43, a former frontman for the Cro-Mags, was charged with felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon last July after he allegedly stabbed and bit estranged band mates Michael Couls and William Berardo at the East Village venue.
Good! Now here's where it gets nuts; Flanagan gets off on the charges and everything is cool for a little while. Until now, when Couls and Berardo decide they're going to sue Flanagan and sue Webster Hall where the attack took place because of a "lack of security." More on this as it happens!
EDIT- So this morning, the band's singer John Joseph said this:
The Cro-Mags aren't suing anyone so get your f*cking fax straight people… our part-time fill in bass player is suing Webster Hall for his hospital bills. The Cro-Mags aren't suing anyone. I don't give two fux about all this but when you outright post bullshit I'm gonna speak on it.
So yeah, what I said; it's the estranged members. Not the Cro-Mags. Hooray for facts!
