‘The Ataris’ Frontman Attacks Drummer On Stage

Crazy moment at The Ataris concert in Jersey this weekend … when the lead singer FLIPPED OUT and attacked his drummer … firing his guitar at the guy and then throwing the drum kit off the stage.

It was a pretty glorious meltdown … the band — famous for their 2003 hit “Boys of Summer” — were in the middle of a song when singer Kris Roe decided he HATED the way the drummer was playing. Roe finally reaches his breaking point … unstrapping his guitar and launching it at the drummer. When the drummer continued to play, Roe grabbed pieces of the drum set … lifted them over his head … and threw them off the stage, until the drummer got the message.

Roe then went to the mic and tried to explain himself — “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.”

Kris — along with the rest of the band (sans drummer) — has issued a video statement explaining why he flipped out on stage. Kris says the drummer had been drinking heavily before the show … “for like 6 hours probably” … and was a mess on stage, missing beats and playing like crap. Kris says he would have liked to have handled the situation differently … “but c’mon … it’s rock ‘n roll.”

What can you say about this recent Ataris concert breakdown? Should they fire their drummer or their frontman? Feel free to give us a holler via the comment box below!

Tanning Mom: My Critics Are Jealous, Fat And Ugly

Patricia Krentcil, the slender, leathery New Jersey mom who’s pleaded not guilty to bringing her 6-year-old daughter into a tanning bed with her, is heatedly lashing out at those who may criticize her look.

“They’re jealous, they’re fat and they’re ugly,” Krentcil, 44 years old, told TMZ, after saying that “there’s somebody out there my whole life who doesn’t like me.” Uh-huh.

She agreed with the reporter’s suggestion that she is the victim of a witch hunt, and once again proclaimed her innocence in the matter that has gained national attention: ”I’m a great mother, and I would never do that to my child,” Krentcil said while loading her shopping into a car.

Krentcil’s daughter, 6, apparently showed up to school one day with a sunburn, telling friends she went tanning with her mom. But Krentcil – whose skin is an unnatural shade of dark brown as a result of bronzing under lights – says the whole thing is “preposterous.”

Do you believe Tanning Mom’s not guilty plea, or do you think she is just a victim of a nationwide witch hunt? Do you think she is really a “great mother” as she claims? Kidding aside, feel free to comment about this issue. Share your opinions with us!
