Kamikaze guitarist arrested in Dubai

Kamikaze guitarist Led Zeppelin Tuyay was arrested in Dubai for marijuana possession on his way to a sell-out show in the emirate.

Tuyay was arrested at Dubai International Airport after the band’s arrival in Dubai last week for this years "Rakrakan Fest" concert in Dubai. He was not able to play during the concert.

His band members played on without him along with other Filipino bands Bamboo, Pupil, and veteran rockers The Dawn.

If found guilty of drug possession, Tuyay could face jail and deportation from the UAE.

I guess nobody warned them that they could never enter Dubai and would be questioned, stripped and scanned if they were suspected of carrying illegal drugs.
