On 11.21.23, in the middle of a Brian Jonestown Massacre show at the Forum Theatre in Melbourne, an onstage brawl -- a falling-down slapfight -- happened between guitarist and lead vocalist Anton Newcombe, 56, and guitarist Ryan Van Kriedt. The remainder of their Australian tour was cancelled the next day. Many in the audience grew tired of the long gaps between songs – up to three or four minutes – and the "torrent of abuse" that Newcombe hurled at the crowd, and left early. And then the curtain came down.
