Ken Casey of Dropkicks sets skinhead straight


A belated shout-out to Dropkick Murphy Ken Casey for giving a skinhead what for during the band’s show the other night at New York’s Terminal 5. The Dropkicks were in the midst of a medley that included AC/DC’s “T.N.T.” when the follicly challenged fellow began making what appeared to be a Nazi salute at the side of the stage. The website takes it from there: “Casey noticed this and ran right over to the guy, smashed him in the face, took off his bass and hit him with that and then jumped on him and all out chaos ensued.” Casey, who emerged from the scrum mostly unscathed, then grabbed the microphone and announced to the crowd: “Nazis are not [expletive] welcome at a Dropkick Murphys show.” A video of the incident has been viewed almost 85,000 times on YouTube. Attempts to reach Casey Wednesday were unsuccessful.
