Those W.A.S.P. fans — they’re fucking crazy. I’m not sure Blackie would approve of this. But according to news reports, a drunk 40-year-old man bit off a security guard’s ear during Friday’s W.A.S.P. gig in Örebro, Sweden.
The biter was detained by police at the venue, and he was charged on suspicion of aggravated assault. Before chomping his ear off, the man verbally threatened the guard. Then, he followed through on that threat. There’s no word yet on what spurred the drunken man to accost the guard.
Meanwhile, former W.A.S.P. guitarists Chris Holmes and Randy Piper have joined forces with bassist — and pot dealer — Steve Unger and former W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland have joined forces in a new band: W.A.S. No shit.
W.A.S. stands for Where Angels Suffer. The band’s debut disc, Purgatory, will drop October 31. A press release describes the group as “embrac[ing] their metal history while simultaneously astounding their fans with groundbreaking original songs that could only be created by the exceptional chemistry and passion these professional musicians discovered when they came together again.”
