Badly Drawn Boy - Gough Apologises For Losing His Temper At Show
BADLY DRAWN BOY star DAMON GOUGH has apologised to fans for his onstage meltdown at a concert in Los Angeles last week (16Dec10).
The British musician launched into a foul-mouthed rant and stormed offstage four songs into his set at the Troubadour last Thursday night, leaving fans baffled and upset.
But, in a video message to fans posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday (21Dec10), Gough insists he's truly sorry for losing his temper.
He says, "I can start by saying that there is no one more upset by this situation than myself. As an artist you only want to do the job to the best of your ability... When that is compromised there is a tendency to get frustrated."
Concertgoers reports the show was plagued with sound problems and when hecklers began to berate the star from the audience, he lost his cool.
Gough adds, "I don't feel I owe an apology to those who heckled but I want to profusely apologise to those caught in the crossfire, especially a guy who had to leave with his young daughter and all of you who stuck by me to help turn things around."
