Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin had an on-stage meltdown during a show Wednesday night.
TMZ posted video showing Scantlin losing it during the Dallas show, throwing his microphone into the crowd. Some reports say fans were upset because it appeared he was lip-syncing.
Scantlin’s mic tossing might have injured a fan. Paramedics were called though they didn’t say what the caused the injury. Several witnesses blamed it on the flying mic.
A video has gone viral from a parent who let’s his six-year-old son operate his motorcycle.
The video is from the point of view of the father and shows his son sitting in front of him on his motorcycle. Part of the way through the video the dad takes his hands off the handlebars and that’s when his son takes control.
The reactions have been mixed from parents and motorcycle fans – some say it’s not a big deal, some can’t believe how unsafe he’s being.

In a funny performance at the this year’s College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational, a dad from Utah runs down all the ways he’s been preparing for the boy who might one day break his daughter’s heart.
Some of the lines from his poem:
‘To the boys who will one day date my daughter,’ ‘I have been waiting for you.
‘Since before her birth. since before my spark took hold and ignited a fire in her mother’s belly, I have been training to kill you.’
‘Pay no attention to my ample crawlspace, my room with a rubber mat and a drain. Be careful to only approach me with love for my daughter. ‘
‘To the girls who may one day date my daughter: My wife is a better shot than I am.’

PBS animated a 1996 Johnny Cash interview where he spoke candidly about rock musicians, God, drugs, dressing in black and Elvis Presley. It’s part of their Blank on Blank series.
When talking about his addiction to painkillers, Cash said: “It’s like an alcoholic. He can’t drink, and I can’t take painkillers. I’m not very brave. For five years I didn’t try to take them. I fought it. I have a total of 34 surgical procedures on my left jaw. Every doctor I’ve been to knows what to do next and to relieve me of pain. I don’t believe any of them. I’m handling it. It’s my pain. I’m not being brave either. I’m not brave at all. After what I’ve been through, I just know how to handle it.”
