3 Inches Of Blood sack their drummer and apologise for beating up Saxon

Canadian metallers 3 Inches Of Blood have issued the following apology to Saxon (and specifically their drummer Nigel Glockler, who ended up with broken specs and a black eye) following the bust-up at Minehead's Hard Rock Hell festival over the weekend:

Dear Nigel and Saxon,

On behalf of all the members of 3 Inches Of Blood we would like to express the utmost regret and sincere apology regarding the actions of our drummer, Alexei Rodriguez, that occurred in Minehead in the early hours of November 10.

In no way were Alexei's actions a reflection of our band. Needless to say we were completely shocked and horrified to learn about these events and are grateful that Saxon was still able to perform. We have complete respect for Saxon as a band and as individuals and would never want anyone's livelihood as a musician to be jeopardised for any reason.

Alexei's behaviour was appalling and completely unacceptable and it is our decision to immediately remove him from the band. We would like to attempt to repair the damage that has been caused and hope that you will not think of 3 Inches Of Blood as a band that habitually acts in such inappropriate ways.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and continuing to make great music.

Sincerely,

Cam Pipes, Justin Hagberg, Shane Clark, Nick Cates and Jamie Hooper
3 INCHES OF BLOOD

They did the right thing. Shame Motley Crue didn't remove certain members for wife-beating.

Too right! Mind you, back in the 80's he would have had his arse kicked by the band instead of security. Let's hope we never hear from the little piss ant again. Good for the rest of 3 inches to apologise though.

Weak Sauce.. if the drummers had beef, one dude got pwnd cause he can't fight well. 3 inches is acting like they are the owners of a del taco and someone found a roach in a taco.. stand by your band
