Alien Ant Farm: Mean Fiddler
Adam Sweeting, The Guardian, 22 August 2003
ON TOUR LAST YEAR, Alien Ant Farm were involved in a bus crash in Spain, which left their driver dead and the band traumatised and nursing various injuries. Vocalist Dryden Mitchell suffered a broken neck and spent weeks with a steel support wedged against his head. Apparently they had to take a deep breath and swallow hard before they got back on a plane to Europe for this summer's festival season, but seeing them bounce around the stage tonight, you'd never have guessed.
