Happy Monday, Shaun Ryder

"Chants of 'Who are you?' were met with confusion by Ryder, who thought the crowd were chanting for fellow Manchester band New Order. After some bottle-throwing and abuse from the crowd, they were treated to a series of unwanted Happy Mondays and Black Grape covers from Ryder and band including 'Kinky Afro', 'Reverend Black Grape' and 'Hallelujah'. After calling an abusive member of the crowd 'a f**king knob', Ryder played 'Step On' before leaving the stage."
-Shaun William Ryder was nearly bottled offstage this weekend after confused fans at Britain's V Festival turned up expecting Peter Andre (a singer known for having been married to something called Jordan) to perform instead. Shaun Ryder turns 48-!!!-today.

"Stone Roses…… was that Noel & Liam's first band?"

If only he'd cried. . .

Was Bez there?

I love the idea that even when he's not trying to be an ass, and was (possibly?) even sober, Ryder still gets pelted with bottles.

I'm surprise that he's still alive..

As far as his offstage antics go, the best I have to go on is "24 Hour Party People," which is admittedly not a terribly objective account. Hilarious, though.

Only a fucking knob would get abusive at seeing Ryder sing 'Kinky Afro'

At least this prepares him for his upcoming appearance at next year's Gathering of the Juggalos.
