DOWN/C.O.C. guitarist Pepper Keenan has confirmed previously-published reports that a physical altercation took place between members of DOWN and ADEMA backstage at the St. Louis stop of Ozzfest in August. When pressed about the incident by Cleveland, Ohio's Music's Bottom Line, Keenan joked around at first that he'd never heard of ADEMA, eventually offering simply that Jonathan Davis' little half-brother Marky Chavez and his group "got smoked". Asked if the press reports blew things out of proportion in the days following the fight, Pepper replied, "Naw, they [ADEMA] just got shut up and that was it."
