Wow, What a BA…



Most people who know me know that Kelly Jones is one of my biggest heroes. He’s a badass. I didn’t know this about him though:

openquoteIn 2000 Jones went to (his friend and band photographer) Julian Castaldi’s home, kicked down his front door, smashed his window with a brick and then vandalised his two cars with a scaffolding pole, whilst under the influence of alcohol. This was because Jones had recently discovered that Castaldi was courting his ex-fiancee, Emma Dunn, four weeks after they had ended their twelve-year relationship. Castaldi called the police and consequently Jones was arrested. However Castaldi did not press charges, leaving Kelly Jones with a £2000 fine for damages. Jones commented that “What I did was completely out of character – but what he did was wrong”, later writing the song “Rainbows and Pots of Gold” in response to the event.openquote
