German hard rockers the Scorpions have issued a statement regarding their incarcerated drummer, who will be spending the next 30 days in a jail in Dubai after being convicted of insulting Islam.
James Kottak allegedly got drunk on a plane, and muttered a bunch of dumb shit about Arabs before mooning a whole lot of them.
Says the statement:
“Dear fans, when James Kottak arrived in Dubai on April 3th, he ran into problems at immigrations and got busted. Whatever happened is totally out of our control and we don’t know any details about it at this point.
“For the concerts in Germany, Johan Franzon, a Swedish drummer, will take James’ seat. Please understand, we keep you posted.”
You’d think they would have started off that statement with as-salami alaykum.
