    Arrested New Years Eve, and a Judge today declared him a Flight Risk



    Source, Ap. CNN also ran this on their "death and doom" ticker that runs at the bottom of the screen.

    I guess the holidays get to muscians too. I can understand a little since my wife forced me to go to Safeway on New Year's Eve.
    Didn't he have another band after the puppets?

    Not really, he did some side project stuff with Derrick and played with his brother on Mike Watt's Ball-Hog or Tugboat? He's the one who's had all the really bad drug problems in the past.

    I think that article overexaggerates the Meat Puppets' success. "Several hit records in the 80's and 90's" is a bit of a stretch, as much as I like them.

    You hit it on the nose. I saw them play many moons ago....sort of an alt-supergroup - that's what it was billed as.
    I remember a friend giving the 1st Meat Puppets record to his very straight girl when it came out. She put it on and if looks could of killed...
