Singer stabs guitarist for fluffing riff

Cristina Balzano: charged with attempted murder

A 19-year-old Italian heavy metal singer, Cristina Balzano, has been arrested for stabbing the guitarist in her band Soul Cry after he fluffed a guitar riff.

According to The Guestlist on Yahoo news, Balzano allegedly stabbed the 16-year-old guitarist for playing the wrong notes during a rehearsal session after accusing him of "sounding evil".

Although one might imagine the whole point of a death metal guitarist should be "sounding evil", Balzano (pictured) has now been charged by Genovese police for attempted murder.
