Brian Jonestown Massacre Deny Knife Reports

By WENN, July 18 2008

American rockers BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE have denied reports a knife was used during an incident in their dressing room following a concert in London last week (ends11Jul08).

The band’s guitarist Frankie Emerson reportedly sustained a stab wound during the incident, which also involved frontman Anton Newcombe.

But a spokesman for the band denies a weapon was used during the altercation at the Forum in Kentish Town.

A joint statement, issued by the band’s label and management, insists Emerson’s cuts were “caused by some glass splinters.”

The statement continues, “Frankie Emerson’s injuries were superficial to his arm and stomach, he was treated at the Royal Free Hospital in London.

“These injuries were caused by horseplay by the band in their own changing room after the gig.

“There was no knife or knives involved in any shape or form in this incident.”

Newcombe was arrested and questioned by police, but released without charge.
