Scott Stapp sued

From Muchmusic.com

***** Fans Sue Stapp
Getting drunk on stage is nothing new for rock'n'rollers but when you are the lead singer of a band who preaches Christianity and the evils of alcohol, it can be upsetting to your audience. Four ***** fans launched a lawsuit Monday against the band alleging that singer Scott Stapp was so "intoxicated and/or medicated'' at *****'s December 29th Chicago concert "that he was unable to sing the lyrics of a single ***** song." Each plaintiff is seeking a refund of their $56.75 ticket price plus parking expenses.

***** issued a written statement at the time apologizing to concertgoers and assuring worried fans that Scott was ok. On the night in question Stapp allegedly rolled around on stage in apparent distress before passing out.

actually they are trying to make it a class action suit, which could result in refunds up to 2 million. While i love to see anyone give ***** shit, to be honest, suing and artist for not performing up to your standards is leading down a percarious road.

That said, I would be more apt to sue ***** if they actually played sober and I had to listen to them.

It's funny, but come on...if you're dumb enough to pay money to see Cr33d than you deserve what you got.

"THEY ONLY HAD 1 ENCORE!!11! I'M SUING!!" Ok, you're a retard.

i'd rather listen to ol' stappy screw up the lyrics than sing them correctly. and yuo'd still have to either pay me large sums of money or hold me at gun point to force me to endure that kind of torutre

Actually, I think I'd pay the 55 bucks just to see Scotty Boy flop around and then pass out on stage.

On a more serious note, it would set a dangerous precedent. I doubt the fans will win for that reason.

The only fans that should be suing bands are those who went to the Great White show. That is a valid case.

I think anyone who consciously decides to go to a ***** show should be sued.

Y'know, this says more about *****'s FANS than it does the band. Whatta bunch of crybabies! Shit, if I sued a band or a performer for every show I've seen where they were drunk, I'd have enough money for some stereo equipment that actually worked!


Losers.
