Andrew Stockdale is fined $350 (£233) after drunken rampage
Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale has been fined $350 (£233) after drunkenly brawling with bouncers in a Australian bar at the weekend.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the singer, who was out drinking with friends at the Archive Bar near his home in Brisbane, forced his way onstage while a local band was performing a cover of The Beatles‘ ‘Let It Be’ and sang a drunken version of the track, with added strong language.

After being forcibly removed from the stage and brawling with bouncers, Stockdale was then told he wouldn’t be served any more drinks. Security members then asked him to leave the venue, but he refused and sat on the floor, refusing to leave the venue, at which point the police were called.
Stockdale was then arrested and spent the night in jail. He was subsequently charged with being drunk and disorderly, failing to leave licensed premises and resisting removal from licensed premises.
Earlier today (July 22), the singer was fined $350 at Brisbane Magistrate’s Court. Speaking on behalf of the Wolfmother frontman, who was not in court, his representative Noel Barbi said: “Mr Stockdale simply had too much to drink.”
