Update: Former Incubus DJ Ordered to Surrender All Firearms After Uttering Death Threats to His Replacement
Published Feb 04, 2010The era of rock bands with DJs is long gone, but the war between Incubus DJs Chris Kilmore and Gavin Koppel continues. Kilmore replaced Kroppel in 1998, beginning a feud that resulted in the jilted former DJ being slapped with a restraining order in 2003.
Last month, we reported that Koppel had once again harassed Kilmore, this time approaching his rival in a Los Angeles store and ordering him to lift the restraining order. He allegedly said, "You will get killed if you don't lift that order... People get killed in the street for that."
Unsurprisingly, this statement had the opposite effect Koppel intended. TMZ now reports that the ex-DJ has now been given another three-year restraining order, meaning that he can't come within a hundred yards of Kilmore or his girlfriend, and can't contact them in any way. On top of that, the L.A. County Superior Court has also ordered him to "turn in or sell guns or firearms, if any, to a licensed gun dealer or turn in to police."
Of course, the real shocker of this story is the fact that Incubus still have a career. The band are reportedly working on new material, and Brandon Boyd previously told the North County Times that they hoped to release a new album in 2010.
