If you haven’t heard about it, the former bassist of the Cro-Mags, Harley Flanagan, was accused of attacking and wounding two people, including a current member of the Cro-Mags, at the CBGB Fest on July 6th. There is no shortage of bad blood between Harley and current Cro-Mags vocalist John Joseph McGowen but Flanagan is claiming self-defense. You can read his statement here:

In an interview with New York Natives Flanagan made the following statement:

“I was getting the shit beat out of me. It was like an old fashion biker beat down, like BA BABABABABA BA And at that point everybody started screaming and I saw the door of the dressing room open and I started screaming ‘security,’ ‘security’ and I saw somebody pull the door shut to keep security out. And in my mind I thought to myself, ‘fuck, these dudes, their intention is to fuck me up, they don’t want no one to see it they’re trying to beat the shit out of me’… SO what I did was defend my life…”
