Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin is apparently still fighting his demons. Scantlin has been on a crazy streak for the past 2 years, mainly due to drugs, and his latest on stage rant is about deceased rockers.
Puddle of Mudd was playing their hit Blurry when Scantlin started singing Stone Sour’s song Through Glass then randomly busting out saying “Stone Sour! Slipknot! Force to be reckoned with! I love you guys, man. Oh my god, thank you very much Corey [Taylor] and the rest of the band. God bless Paul. God bless your soul, Paul. I should’ve been there for you, dawg. I should’ve been there for you, dawg. I’m gonna miss Paul from Slipknot. I’m gonna miss the lead singer of Drowning Pool Dave Williams for the rest of my life.”
Somebody needs to be there for Scantlin. When I saw him live late last year, you can tell from his face and mannerisms that things aren’t going well in his life and the last thing any fan wants is another rockstar falling victim to the horrible disease that is drug addiction.
