Winehouse Punch Victim: 'She Got The Wrong Person'

LATEST: A man who was reportedly attacked by AMY WINEHOUSE at legendary English music festival Glastonbury states he is "disappointed" by the star's actions - because it was a case of mistaken identity.
The 24-year-old was singing her hit track Rehab to 75,000 fans on the Pyramid Stage on Saturday (28Jun08) when she jumped down into the security pit.
The star - who has been receiving medical attention for the lung disease emphysema - then appeared to turn on a member of the crowd, striking a fan with her fist.
Festival organiser Michael Eavis and a spokesperson for the Winehouse quickly defended her actions, insisting she only lost her temper because someone tried to manhandle her and pull her hair.
But James Gostelow, the fan who felt the brunt of the star's fiery display at the event, insists he was the wrong person to get hit - because it was a reveller behind him who had upset the singer.
He tells BBC online, "I saw a hat being thrown from behind me and it hit Amy's beehive. She looked down, saw me looking up, and her elbow went for me."
However Gostelow, who states he has no intention of taking the issue further by making an official complaint, claims he is pleased with Winehouse's outburst - because it got him close to the star.
He says, "At the end of the day it is all part of being at the front and being pushed by thousands of people. It is all part of the Glastonbury experience.
"I'm just pleased I got to see her. She did a great act. Not everyone can say they have been hit by Amy Winehouse. I just want to shake (the hand of) the person who threw the hat."
