Harry Styles: Not the first popstar to be hit with something on stage (video round-up)

RECENTLY, Harry Styles of One Direction, was pelted in the wang by a stray shoe, thrown from his beloved audience. This writer himself has thrown an errant trainer at The Prodigy, missing the target (Keef) by some distance and hitting the drummer’s cymbal at Reading ’96 (if you have a recording of the show, listen out for it during Poison).

Of course, this kind of behaviour is not to be cheered at… mostly. It is wilfully stupid behaviour, but alas, is all part of the rock ‘n’ roll circus.

Some musicians get bras and drugs thrown at them, which is very nice. Most however, aren’t too pleased with what comes their way.

With that, let us look at some of the most brutal bottlings and weirdest missiles aimed toward people just trying to earn a living.

Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger paid the crew to shag an old fan

CHAD Kroeger, currently engaged to Avril Lavigne, has been speaking to Men’s Health about being on tour with his band Nickelback:

CK: We’ve always been very close to our crew, so we’ve had a lot of fun getting them to do silly, stupid things that could possibly cause them to hurt or injure themselves in some way. We were in Germany years ago—this was one of my favorite stories—and we were just bored. There was a heat wave going on in Germany. In a back room in the venue where we were playing, there was an old fan with a metal blade. I don’t remember the last time I saw a fan with a metal blade. And we paid the drum tech…. Oh god, I forget the exact amount. I think we got the pot up to about 600 deutschmarks. At this time Germany hadn’t converted to the Euro yet.

MH: 600 deutschmarks to do what?

CK: Stick his johnson in the fan.

MH: Please tell me he said no.

CK: He took the money.

MH: Oh sweet Moses.

CK: I can still hear the “bleh-bleh-blehhhhhhh” of the blade slowly sputtering to a stop, and this blood-curdling scream. It was fantastic. Somebody has video footage of this somewhere that needs to be resurrected and shown at the guy’s next birthday party.

Avril Lavigne is getting married to Nickelback’s singer, which isn’t weird

CANADA is not known for a terrific musical output (Neil Young and Joni Mitchell aside). They gave us The Crash Test Dummies, Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, the awful Arcade Fire, Barenaked Ladies and more. Someone needs to be culpable for all this dreck.

However, two of the worst to emerge from Canadian shores are getting married in a wedding that can only be described as a taste-hole.

Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger are going to tie the knot.
