''3 Inches Of Blood drummer Alexei Rodriguez was involved in a fight with Saxon drummer Nigel Glockler at the Hard Rock Hell UK metal festival last weekend.

Glockler ended up with broken glasses and a black eye, and 3 Inches Of Blood have since released the following open letter of apology:

"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 jeopardized 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 of 3 Inches Of Blood"


I like Saxon INFINITELY better than 3 inches, but I think kicking a band member out for something like this, a little extreme... I mean, what wasn't mentioned in the article is that the 3inches drummer was hospitalized after the bouncers beat the shit outta him.

I love Saxon. Went to see them 2 years ago at sheffield and they were amazing.

This fight just proves that:

Old > New

i would kick anyone out of my band who, (apparently) starts random fights with other bands, although i see no evidence of him starting the fight

Well we don't know the whole story really.

EDIT: Besides, it's heavy metal and not a celin dion concert. There are fights all the time!

Remember that time Angus Young punched Tony Iommi in the face? Or when Geezer Butler pulled a knife out on Malcolm Young? Or even when the Who and the Guess Who got into a brawl.

This is dirty dirty rocknroll, to an extent it's to be expected.

I'm listening to 3 Inches of Blood right now.

The drummer was a douche, you don't get into a fight with someone in a legendary band like Saxon.

Have some respect, son.

Is this from last year or eight days in the future? Or it's a fake as hell publicity stunt.
