Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin feels a threat in his hometown

Nov 8, 2007 | Posted by: Kansas City Star | Full story: Kansas City Star

“This record took a long time to make”

W es Scantlin wants to come home. For good, he says. He wants to return to Kansas City, hang out with his family, spend time with his 10-year-old son, Jordan, and walk him to school when he wants.

'I'd love to come back to Kansas City,' he said. 'I'm selling everything I own in L.A. I'm outta there. I don't like it very much. But I'll probably move near my brother in Florida. At least I'd be by someone who's a part of my family.'

Scantlin has been home for a visit at least twice this year. His band, Puddle of Mudd, performed at Rockfest in June and at Kemper Arena in September (with Nickelback and Chris Daughtry). He'll be back again this week for a Puddle of Mudd show at the Uptown Theater. Read more

I feel sorry for Wes not being able to be with his son every day. I hope he can return home and just live his life to the fullest. You are the greatest Wes and some many of your songs hit home for me.

Don't let the Hollywood life go to your head. Stay down to earth. From all that I have read about you, I think you're one hell of a guy.

Remember, be the 'BIG DOG'.

I wouldn't feel too sorry for good'ol Wes. The word I have is Wes went to a concert at Sandstone and gave a demo tape to some one there. They liked it and told he in some fashion he has what they want BUT he must abandon his band-mates and hook-up with a new band. The little p r ic k gave his buddies the finger and went off to be a star. Screw him. I will never buy his product. I'll kick his a s s if I see him - no ... I'll have my girlfriend do it.

you act like he's the first that's happened to. that's the way music biz work's.
hopefully he gave or will give former bandmates opportunity's after he got established.

Wes is a pretty awesome guy. I just met him recently and he seemed real nice. Plus my dad went to school with him and Chris and the other guys.

If he misses his son in KC so much, why the hell is he moving to Florida to be near his brother?

Let's see.... why doesn't someone ask Wes who really wrote his new song Hookie.....that would have been his SON...so do you see his name anywhere on the cd or anywhere for that matter... how about this, his own son doesn't even get royalties or anything for appearing in either of the two videos he's been in. Not to mention that Wes is so fincially desitute that he forced his son's mother to reduce her child support to a meager amount in order for him to live his lavish lifestyle in the Hills... I've known him since the day he was born and believe me he is NOT the person you people think he is... he does not care for his son and he constantly cheats on his wife. He does nothing but drink and do drugs....if it's not about Wes then it's not about anything (how about that for a song title Wes)
