Jay was playing a set at the historic Cavern Club in Liverpool, England, a venue that a little band by the name of The Beatles played back in the day, maybe you’ve heard of them.
Anyways, Jay was in the middle of a rousing cover of “Sweet Caroline” when a complete stranger bulldozed him on stage and then gave him an extra kick in the ribs of good measure.
In true cowardly fashion, he high-tailed it off the stage.
Jay responded to comments from his fans on his Facebook page, saying:
“So I’m finally a celeb on social media it’s kinda funny what happened it happened so fast the fucker could have had a knife and I would have never felt it. Thank God he didn’t cheers to all my “mates” who shared it… I’m OK just saw red so I gave him a hiding, knuckles killing me now. The prick was crying like a baby apologizing to me. Moral of story be nice to one and other. Happy New Year. There is no need for that kind of senseless stupidity.”
I had to do some Google translating of the Queen’s English, but I think this means that he caught up with this punk and gave him the ass-kicking he deserved. Whether he found his justice or not, it’s hard to say what really set this guy off. Perhaps a combination of too many pints with the lads, not a big fan of Liverpool and sick of hearing fucking “Sweet Caroline” every time he walks into a pub. You keep playing “Wagon Wheel” down on Broadway and this is bound happend here across the pond too.
If nothing else, this serves as a friendly reminder to all you bar stars down on Broadway, keep your head on a swivel.
You never know when some psycho is going to charge the stage and upend you right in the middle of “Chattahoochee.”
