Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne Calls Ex-Drummer Kliph Scurlock A “Hateful Pathological Liar”

Earlier this month, former Flaming Lips drummer Kliph Scurlock wrote a detailed letter to Pitchfork outlining his claims of frontman Wayne Coyne’s “endless verbal abuse” and “threats.” The former drummer claimed that he was dismissed from the band after criticizing a friend of Coyne’s, Christina Fallin, for wearing a “cultural-appropriating” Native American headdress.

In rebuttal, frontman Wayne Coyne has made comments in an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone outlining the circumstances of Scurlock’s dismissal from the band. Coyne called Scurlock a “hateful person,” a “close-minded musician” and a “hateful pathological liar.” In response to the incident involving the Native American headdress, Coyne says that he regrets his actions and didn’t realize the issue “goes deeply to the heart of some Native Americans.”
