ATLANTA, Ga. (WXIA) -- There are several rules to follow when one goes to a strip club -- keep your hands to yourself and no cameras.
One famous rock band found out the hard way that not even world "fame" can save you from one of the age-old rules.
Mumford & Sons are indeed one of the hottest English folk rock bands
out there. Their tunes are enough to have anyone dancing to their
beats. The group, however, hit a sour note Tuesday night when they were
allegedly kicked out one of Atlanta's popular strip joints -- the
"After several warnings from our security staff not to take pictures, at
least one member of the band was taking pictures and when they were
asked not to take the pictures they became verbally abusive and were
asked to leave," said Jack Barnes, the club's manager.
The band had just performed at Centennial Olympic Park and headed over
for Clermont's karaoke night. But they apparently missed the "no camera"
signs, according to Barnes.
"What goes on in the Clermont - stays in Clermont," Barnes said, adding
that band members were trying to record the karaoke performance, not the
strippers. But the rules are the rules.
"It's like Aretha Franklin said: R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Respect one another.
Respect the club's rules and have the best time in here," Barnes said.
He still believes everyone deserves a second chance.
"They are still welcome back -- they can come back to Thursday's anniversary party as a matter of fact," he said.
Just remember -- no cameras allowed.
