I’d like to start this off by saying, holy crap, The Ataris are still around? Everyone who wrote about this likes to mention the band is famous for their 2003 hit Boys of Summer but I’ve never heard that song so San Dimas High School Football Rules!
Anyway, lead singer Kris Roe threw a hissy fit at their show in Jersey this weekend because he didn’t like how the drums sounded. So like any rational adult, he threw his guitar at drummer Rob Felicetti who kept playing because f*ck that guy. He only stopped when Kris grabbed a piece of his drum set and threw it at him. Oh, reeeeaal mature.
Kris went back to the mic explaining, “Our drummer is f**king failing it tonight … I don’t know what his f**king problem is … but I’m gonna finish the set by myself. It’s f**king embarrassing … I can’t handle it. I apologize … but there’s a certain amount of f**king sh*t I can take … hopefully you guys understand … sh*t happens.”
That rant was followed by someone shouting, “rock and roll, man!” Yea. Definitely. Stomping your feet on the ground and throwing a temper tantrum like a 2-year-old is what rock & roll is all about.
