Calvin Harris apparently has terrible luck with portable bathrooms. According to DJ Mag, the producer/DJ has been involved in more than one incident involving the waste receptacles.
The most recent event was revealed at V Festival, when Madness frontman Graham ‘Suggs’ McPherson said in an interview that a member of his band locked Harris in a festival toilet several years ago at Bestival after he refused to sign an autograph for his daughter.
“Calvin refused to sign an autograph for our sax player Lee’s daughter, so he put a scaffolding pole against the toilet,” he said. “I would never condone that sort of behaviour, I think it’s really out of order.” Apparently so was the toilet…
The first incident with a festival toilet happened at Yorkshire’s Bingley Festival in 2009, and involved Reverend & The Makers frontman Jon McClure, though McClure was not the one who instigated.
“I played Bingley Festival and Calvin Harris was playing before Calvin Harris morphed into a cheesy David Guetta-esque wanker,” he recalled.
“We’ve played and Calvin’s on after and we’ve had a bit of beef, me and Calvin. So I’m on stage and I’ve said something about Calvin and he’s seen me backstage and he’s looking at me and and I’ve looked at him.
“A few security guards have started laughing about me and Calvin’s beef and I’ve egged these security guards on – saying ‘yeah he’s a right wanker isn’t he’.
“He’s gone for a shit in this portaloo and I’ve left, it had nothing to do with me on my mother’s life, and the same security guards, while he was having a tom tit in the portaloo tipped him upside down.
“It were like Dave Benson Phillips with shit. It were awful.”
Colorful language aside, the story sounds hilarious. Calvin must be awfully wary around random festival bathroom these days, as well.
