Adam Ant Taken to Nuthouse after Kinda Awesome Performance
Everyone else is reporting that long-time mental-illness sufferer Adam Ant has been hospitalized again after going loco during a show.
Well, we tracked down a Daily Mail story that actually describes the performance and it sounds kinda awesome:
The Antmusic singer has a history of depression and, according to an Adam & The Ants website, had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Ant had announced that he planned to go back on the road for his daughter and only child, Lily, who is 12.
But at a recent concert to raise funds for charity, Ant invited a four-year-old boy up to the stage and started teaching him the words to The Who's song, "My Generation."
When frustrated fans began leaving, he started shouting obscenities at them and ended up being booed off the stage.
Doesn't this sound like the best show ever? Release him now.
[The obscenities are described as anti-Christian by several news outlets. First Ariel Pink, then this? What's up with musicians and religious diatribes?]
