He fined himself actually:
- At a Ryan Adams concert at the Ryman Auditorium on Tuesday, someone in the audience yelled out a request for Summer of '69, a Bryan Adams hit.
Ryan Adams, former leader of the band Whiskeytown, reacted with stream of expletives and ordered the house lights turned on, the Tennessean newspaper reported.
The alternative country musician found the fan who made the joke request, paid him $30 cash as a refund for the show, ordered him to leave and said he wouldn't play another note until that happened.
Ryman general manager Pam Matthews stopped the fan on his way out, "apologized profusely" and allowed him back into the concert.
The fan kept Adams's $30.
After the show Matthews held Adams's arms behind his back while the fan kicked him in the nads.
