Upon a Burning Body Singer Allegedly Beaten Up by Former Gwar Singer Kim Dylla
Last time we heard about Upon a Burning Body singer Danny Leal, he faked his own disappearance as part of a mindblowingly ill-conceived publicity stunt just prior to a concert in Phoenix. Now, he's acting up again, according to metal blog Lambgoat.
Reportedly, Leal approached Dylla and some of her friends and did something vaguely sexually assault-y, according to comments Dylla made to Lambgoat afterward.
Bad move. Dylla is a former professional wrestler who knows how to administer an ass-whooping.
Dylla posted to her Facebook page:
So apparently the dude whose ass I kicked last night was the singer for some xxsceneemocorexx band called Upon a Burning Body. I guess not enough 16-year-old emo girls threw themselves at him after opening the shitty baby stage so he had to come up and harass and molest our girls. Big mistake. Anyway heads up to anyone at a show that piece of shit plays that his is dick is so tiny that he will randomly come up to women and get belligerent and rapey if they reject him or don't know "who he is." I guess he won't be in anymore Instagram pics with those ironic glasses at least ;) Easiest fight of my life.
Dylla, who joined Gwar under the name Vulvatron last year and was in the band until May, later clarified to Lambgoat:
"I hit him in the glasses with my beer then got a chokehold on in 10 seconds. Threw him out of our area and said don't treat women like that, you entitled dick. He came back with 5 of his friends (I wonder what he told his posse that he needed backup for...) and we had gotten security by then. He was still mouthing off about wanting to hit 'whores' so they escorted him out and he said, 'Don't you know who I am? I'm a performer.'"
We've reached out to Leal's manager for comment, who said his team was preparing a response. We'll update when we get one. We reached out to Dylla and have yet to receive a response.
