Dillinger Escape Plan Once Hit Disruptive Fan in Face With Guitar

Dillinger Escape Plan

(Metal Hammer) The Dillinger Escape Plan's Ben Weinman has recalled hitting a disruptive audience member in the face with his guitar during one of the band's early shows.

Weinman says the man was "heckling and talking sh*t" throughout the set and then poured beer over his guitar pedals before he took action, aided by the band's former singer Dimitri Minakakis.

Weinman tells Rolling Stone: "This guy kept f***ing with me during our set for some reason, heckling me and talking sh*t. I was just trying to ignore him, but then he poured beer all over my pedals - I didn't have much money, and they cost a lot to replace.

"So I slapped him in the face with the headstock of my guitar. I was like, 'Come on, man, I just want to finish the set.' But he kept motioning like he wanted me to come off the stage and fight him, so I told him to come up and get me.

"I swung my guitar like a baseball bat and caught him in the face. At the same time, our old singer Dimitri was twirling the microphone and hit him in the back of the head with it." Read more here.
