Here is Richard’s original message as he Posted it on the Filter website this past Sunday (8-4): "We played to a sold-out concert in Chicago at the Ronald McDonald House Of Burger King Blues, complete with a packed crowd and a willingness to piss off local critics...Except for the fans, that town has never given us any respect, and at this point I don't even care. So, we took a s**** in the dressing room and moved on to Detroit."
Now Richard admits that it was all a joke. When asked about the incident he told a report for Yahoo’s Launch Media, “Basically it was just a little punk thing I put in the 'Rich Words' [a section of the filter site] It was a joke...When you play the House Of Blues it's a bit of a franchise, so I just wanted to let my fans to know that, yeah, I took a big ol' crap in the toilet just to punk rock it up a bit. It was just a joke. I think I had a couple of beers in me, too."
Why should we care either way? Well it was a slow news day so there you have it, Filter got what they wanted some press.
