Cool The Vines ordered to fly home after Craig Nicholls 'snaps' onstage

from nme.com:

The Vines have been ordered to fly back to Australia for emergency rest after an "exhausted" Craig Nicholls snapped onstage at a show in Boston and fell brawling into the audience with bassist Patrick Mathews.
All dates outside of Australia for the first quarter of 2003 have been cancelled including their hot anticipated NME Awards Show at the London Astoria on February 12. Tours of Japan and America have also been cancelled. It is believed they will still be playing Big Day Out in Australia.

According to eyewitnesses Nicholls "went nutty" after Mathews broke a bass string during 'Ain't No Room' swinging his microphone around, hitting him on the head. Mathews then lunged at him and they fell fighting into the audience.

Both Nicholls and Mathews have been increasingly erratic in their behaviour in recent months.

The band flew home after playing a Chicago show on December 15. They were scheduled to play gigs in Indianapolis and Detroit on December 16 and 17.

Talking

He was probably pissed because the backing vocals were actually in key

oh god, I can just see it now. The Vines break up and become rock legends for being so talented, but lasting such a short time. kind of like when kurt cobain died, or something like that.
