Hollywood Undead, the mask-clad nu-metal-eqsue band from California, have hit the headlines today for all the wrong reasons.
After filing an official police complaint, ex-frontman Aron ‘Deuce’ Erlichman plans on suing former bandmates Dylan ‘FunnyMan’ Alvarez and Jorel ‘J-Dog’ Decker following an incident outside a Hollywood venue last week.
Deuce, who had recently left the group, stating creative differences as the catalyst, alleges that FunnyMan and J-Dog lay in wait for him to leave the Angels & Kings hotspot following a solo performance that night. He alleges that the two then pounced on him, savagely punching and kicking him, and stomping on him. According to TMZ , Deuce believes his old bandmates were still sour about the split, and he has hired renowned ambulance chaser Donald Karpel for legal representation.
The matter is now with police, and no word has come through from FunnyMan or J-Dog; though with nicknames like that, I can’t see them staying quiet much longer.
