Filter drummer shut out of Denver restaurant due to tattoosFilter drummer Jeff Fabb was denied entry to Denver restaurant Brothers Bar & Grill on October 9 due to his neck tattoos. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the band had visited the restaurant during the day, as it was around the corner from the venue where the band was set to perform, and Fabb had no problem getting in. “I had eaten in the restaurant twice, and after the show, we walked back there,” Fabb says. “The door guy was about to let Amir, our merch guy, in, but he wouldn’t let me in. I went to speak with the manager and he was confrontational from the moment he saw me. He really didn’t care that we’d been there earlier. I was kind of hurt, since most of the people who were in there at the time were from our show and we wanted to join them. I was calm the whole time, though, and when we were walking out, he yelled at the door guy not to let us in.” Front man Richard Patrick recorded the incident on his cell phone and has called for a boycott of the restaurant until it changes its policies. Brothers Bar & Grill posted to their Facebook: “We are NOT against tattoos. We are NOT against visible tattoos. Our employees have and display tattoos. Our guests have and display tattoos. That has always been the case. What the tattoo represents or symbolizes and where the tattoo is located is a criteria to entering our location.” The post did not detail the criteria for denying entrance. Filter is currently touring with Red, Otherwise, and We As Human, supporting its new album, The Sun Comes Out Tonight.
