Goner Message Board / Memphis / King Khan vs. Mastodumb

King Khan socked in the mouth

Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds allegedly got himself into another altercation last night (September 18), this time with garage guru Arish "King" Khan. According to multiple sources, including a report by Chad Radford for Creative Loafing Atlanta's Crib Notes blog, Hinds punched Khan in the face, sending him to the hospital, after an appearance in Atlanta at the Highland Inn Lounge's weekly Kirkwood Ballers Club open mic.

Khan played the gig to support his friend and Atlanta scene fixture BJ Womack. Kristin Klein, King Khan's manager, told us that Womack was "just diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, so Arish came into Atlanta from Berlin...to see [Womack], because it could be the last time he sees our friend." Frank Jensen-- Womack's "best friend of, like, 25 years [and] the drummer for [Chicago bands] the Tyrades and the Busy Signals"-- also flew into Atlanta to play the gig with Khan and Womack.

According to Klein, the trio (plus drummer Jessica Juggz) played a few songs, including a cover of Them's "Gloria", before Hinds, who was in attendance, spontaneously joined them on guitar. "Brent was fucking around with Arish's guitar," says Klein. "Arish dumped a beer on Brent's head, and then after the show was over, Arish went outside and was like, 'Hey man, sorry about the beer. Let me buy you a drink.' And Brent said, 'Do you know who I am?' And Arish said, 'No, not really. Kind of. I don't know.' And Brent said, 'I'm the greatest guitar player alive.' And Arish said, 'Well okay man, but this is all about our friend BJ, you know?' And he went to walk away and he got sucker punched. Split his lip open."

Klein took Arish to the Atlanta Medical Center, where Khan "ended up getting three stitches in his lip."

From wiki:
On June 12, 2007 Brent and Bill won Metal Hammer Golden Gods award for best shredders

And Brent said, 'I'm the greatest guitar player alive.'
I highly doubt this.

That he said it.

I think there's probably a lot more to it.

Isn't this the same guy who got beat up in vegas by the System of A Down guys for poppin them with a wet towl in the parking lot or somethin?

He got beat up by Syndrome of a Down, weak.

Mastodon has sucked for years now anyways.

I was DJing at a club down the road and saw Brent briefly, he looked pretty toasted and the door man wasn't allowing him into the bar.

Hated that I had to miss the Highland Inn thing, hate even more that this dumb shit had to happen. Brent's a good guy, unfortunately this scenario has been played out with him just about the same way several times over the years.

I'm sure if the greatest guitar player thing was said it was said in jest. He really doesn't have a big head.

Khan can take of himself -- he's prob had lots worse -- and it sucks that fucking douchebag did that -- although it really RULES that he did cause it proves that he's a fucking idiot douchebag and ALL the milllions of mastadon fans should sell their stupid fucking records and send the money to BOBBY FUCKING UBANGI -- the REAL fucking hero of this story.

Womack was "just diagnosed with terminal brain cancer,

My sentiments exactly Whiskey. Thank you.

Right now I'm ashamed to be friends with Hinds and devastated by the news of Womack.

Hey, go back to your respective city forums!
Posted: Sep 23, 2008 9:15 pm
This is worthless without a youtube link.

Even though their recent records suck, Mastodon is the shit. Gutter punks need to learn how to fight better. the hessians win every fucking time, it seems.
