The Lemonheads’ Evan Dando is no stranger to controversial quotes, but this one pretty much takes the cake. We’ve got a question mark in the title because the source is a UK tabloid, but it appears that Dando really told The Sun that the September 11th terrorist attacks were “kind of beautiful in a weird way” because he “always wanted to see a plane crash.”
As if that wasn’t scandalous enough, Dando closed his 9/11 reflections with the following:
It was nothing to do with the planes hitting the buildings, them falling down. I know that for sure. It was a bomb planted in the building.
Maybe it was al-Qaeda that planted it, but I very much doubt it.
Perhaps Dando is tired of Kanye getting all the controversy love/hate today.
