Tales from the road (part 14)

Private Sector's recent kitten controversy has apparently followed them to Maple Ridge for a three day music festival this weekend. During the band's set four dead kittens were hurled on to the stage. One hit drummer Brian Christopher and was impaled on a drum stick.

It was a disgusting display that guitarist Stuart Green reprimanded the crowd for and the band chose to cut their set three songs short in protest.

Later headliner Neil Young told the audience, "There are two types of people in this world. Those who are kind, giving, honest and sincere and those who give kittens to people in mosh pits." He then played, "Rockin' in the Free World".

Concerning the comment, Private Sector vocalist Chris Strange said, "That was nice of Neil to say."

When told it wasn't a compliment Strange responded, "it wasn't?"

Security for the rest of the weekend will beefed up and all will be searched for kittens before entering.
