Having been strapped pretty tightly to our seats during the King Khan and BBQ'd Shrooms saga this week, we 'd feel remiss if we didn't inform you of the band's recent statement, one they issued just after the cancelation of shows in St. Louis and Lawrence, Kansas. And oh yeah, after they bumped heads with law enforcement in Kentucky over some hallucinogenic contraband.
On November 16, 2009 Kristin Klein entered a guilty plea to 2degree possession of a controlled substance in Christian County, Kentucky. Ms Klein was driving a rental vehicle that was randomly stopped at a safety checkpoint. Officers located a controlled substance in the cab of the vehicle. Ms Klein was unaware of the contraband and the validity of her license was indeterminable at time of arrest. Under KY law a driver of a vehicle is responsible for its contents. Therefore, Ms Klein entered a guilty plea and is scheduled to appear on April 2, 2010 to provide proof of her valid license.
King Khan & BBQ Show are driving through the night to make their Los Angeles show attomorrow. Tonight's show in Phoenix is cancelled, but all further west coast dates and will to be honored. Kristin Klein is safe with the band and continuing her tenure as tour manager.
