FILTER Frontman Pulls Prank On Bandmate — And Gets Busted

FILTER frontman Richard Patrick, a notoriously bad-tempered individual known for speaking his mind, has become quite the prankster during the recent weeks, if his postings on the group's official web site are to be believed.

"A lot of on tour pranks are starting to kick up," Patrick wrote in his most recent "Rich's Words" online column. " For instance, last night we waited until an unnamed member of the band went to bed and we put a walkie-talkie next to his ear. Through the technique of subliminal messages, we convinced him that he had to go to the bathroom in his sleep. We made him wet his bunk by whispering, 'You have to take a piss' into the walkie-talkie. So he woke up, ran to the bathroom, relieved himself, went back to his bunk, found the walkie-talkie and threw it at us like a baseball. It hit the front window of the bus and shattered upon impact. The bus driver stopped the bus because fragments of the walkie-talkie ended up in his eye, so needless to say, we owed our bus driver a big apology."
