NME reports that the two friends went to hug each other at a Villagers show in Manchester but, with both of them having blood alcohol levels that we're speculating would be higher than the legal driving limit, they kinda, well...just missed. The resulting headbutt was mutually unintentional and certainly done without any ill-will.
Elbow singer Guy Garvey made light of the situation on his Twitter feed on Wednesday, insisting that Pritchard was gentlemanly and understanding, even if he now has one less tooth to show for it. "REAL MEN LOVE EACH OTHER AND OFTEN DRINK NEWS," wrote Garvey, "In a head-on collision of bass Goliaths, a tooth was lost at the Villagers gig last night."
As a humorous follow-up, sort-of, Zutons frontman Dave McCabe weighed in on the situation with his own tweeted two cents. "He wants to watch that -- nutting people, it gets you into trouble, take it from me, the horse's head," he wrote. Of course, McCabe's mishap wasn't quite so congenial; last fall he was found guilty of assault -- in the form of a headbutt -- outside a Liverpool nightclub. Maybe he should heed Garvey's advice: real men love each other. Right?
