"So if you haven't heard yet Wes the lead signer from Puddle Of Mudd decided to take a joy ride on the carousel at the airport this morning thru restricted access and got arrested. We have been on this all day and he is just about to be release from Jail and will head straight to the venue. The show will go on but that is why we are running late. #‎f---ingrockstars"
