Published Dec 11, 2008A 19-year-old Italian heavy metal singer has been arrested for stabbing her guitarist after he buggered up a guitar riff.
Front-woman Cristina Balzano of the band Soul Cry allegedly stabbed her 16-year-old band-mate after he hit the wrong note during a rehearsal and accused him of "sounding evil," Yahoo Music reports.
Despite "sounding evil" usually being a prerequisite for a metal band, Balzano has now been charged by Genovese police for attempted murder.
There is no word what she used to stab the guitar player, but here are a few possibilities:
- Drum stick
- Sacrificial knife
- Devil's horn
- A pen, like Joe Pesci in Casino
