A member of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony was hit by a drone during a show. Labels that underreport, promoters that hide sales, low streaming payments... musicians already have a tough time. But drone strikes?
A member of the hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony was struck in the face by a drone during a show in California.
According to the Associated Press, the group was performing at the High Life Music Festival in Victorville when a drone buzzing around stage struck Stanley "Flesh-N-Bone" Howse in the face.
In a video of the incident, the approximately 2 foot wide drone can be seen hovering near Howse before the impact. Howse can be seen to clutch his head, but the band continued to perform.
It is unclear if the drone was being operated by someone connected with the festival, or a fan. Messages left with police and representatives for the group weren't immediately returned, the AP said.
