Six Feet Under singer punches Cattle Decap singer
Cattle Decapitation has apparently dropped off the Six Feet Under tour following some drama between Cattle Decapitation vocalist Travis Ryan and Six Feet Under frontman Chris Barnes. Ryan had the following to say via Facebook:
Chris Barnes is a fucking hack. I've personally passed on at least five Six Feet tours over the last 8 or so years because he pulls so much nonsense on the support bands because his ego is astronomical. We're leaving the Chris Barnes Show tour today. Go to the Chris Barnes show and buy some of their merch. They need it desperately.Ryan subsequently elaborated further, which Metal Injection was kind enough to post:
He couldn't handle the fact that we were destroying him nightly on merch and talked shit about us on stage last night. I went to confront him about that and he sucker punched me as I was talking. He immediately RAN out the door and fled to his bus like he does every night when the two fans that are left for their show are trying to get him to sign something. We're leaving because we have no interest in bringing more people to the chris barnes show. There was no "fight". He punched me, RAN away and a few people saw it. I just walked out told his tour manager the deal, wrapped up the merch and left. Just don't go to the show and please get the word out. Cattle Decapitation is not doing this tour as we no longer wish to bring peole to his show. Cuz its HIS show. More than enough people have drilled that fact into us. he says "what about showing some respect" I laughed, said "respect?" And proceeded to tell him about the time where he spent all night with me outside their bus @ the tail end of the butchered at birth tour in 93 and that respect was paid long ago and he's since proved to the metal world how much of a bitch he is… I got "dude, in 1993…" In there and he punched me as I was talking. Ran out the door and seriously thinks he's a bad ass still? Hahaha… Here's how chris barnes works: punches. Runs. Does the Rocky dance like he's a badass on his tour bus he's about to not fuckin afford.For his part, Barnes had the following to say via Twitter: "If you eat tofu you'll get you're ass kicked in a fight. #knocked out"
