musicNEWS:  Down Punches Out Adema Guitarist Backstage at Ozzfest

Seems that there is even more action going on behind the scenes at this year’s Ozzfest than fans are seeing on the stage. It appears things got heated backstage at Ozzfest in St Louis, Mo where one of the guitarist for Adema got punched in the mouth while he was on Down’s tour bus and it almost led to a showdown between Phil Anselmo and the Down boys and Jonathon Davis’ little brother Marky Chavez and his group Adema. 

It is unclear whether it was Mike Ransom or Tim Fluckey who got punched in the mouth by someone on the Down tour bus, but here is the story as it was related to antiMUSIC by an eye witness to the incident. 

At about 11:30 Monday night, a few of the band members and crew were hanging out next to the ill nino bus, where a BBQ was happening. At about that time Marky Chavez and one of the guitarists for Adema rolled past in a golf cart, “about a bottle of Crown Royal to the wind”. The reportedly drunk duo from Adema proceeded to the tourbus housing the members of Down, which was near by. 

A few minutes later the Adema guitarist emerged from the Down tour bus with a bloody mouth and proceeded to throw a glass bottle across the parking lot in anger according to an eyewitness. 

Then the members of Adema descended on the scene ready for a fight, apparently looking “for who punched their boy in the mouth”.  The members of Down and their entourage aren’t exactly small guys so it took a lot of liquid courage to confront them. Then things turned to a yelling match with Marky Chavez yelling for the guitarist from down to “come down off the bus”. By this time most of the people backstage had gathered around to watch the mayhem unfold. 

The yelling from the Adema camp apparently worked because soon Pepper and Phil Anselmo came off their bus to confront their antagonist. Pepper playing the calm cool and collective music and touring veteran took Marky aside to try and discuss the situation with him without resorting to violence. 

Then the head of security "Big Val" showed up and apparently things calmed down at that point with each band going back to their tour buses to cool off. So a major rumble was just barely averted backstage at Ozzfest but you can be sure there will be no love lost between the members of Down and Adema from this point on. 

This wasn’t the only violence backstage that night, apparently in an unrelated scuffle Joe Schigel the drummer of Switched was wrestling with one of Down’s t-shirt guys and it got a little heated and punches were thrown. The message here for other Ozzfest bands is don’t mess with Down!
