It's easy to forget things when you're at Walmart. There is just so much going on at the superstore that your mind instantly turns off and reverts to survival mode — just watch any Black Friday video associated with the store. So it's understandable that Belle and Sebastian would leave something behind when they made a quick stop at a store in North Dakota. Though, we're not so sure Richard Colburn feels the same.
Yesterday, the band was heading to their show in St. Paul, Minnesota when they realized they left something behind in North Dakota, their drummer. Upon realizing what they'd done frontman Stuart Murdoch tweeted, "S***, we left Richard in North Dakota. Anyone want to be a hero and get him to St Paul, Minnesota somehow. The gig hangs in the balance.."
Apparently Colburn ended up sitting in the Walmart for four hours, in just his pajamas and with no identification. Luckily he had a credit card on him and checked into a hotel for the night. The next morning, Ellen Shafer, a publicist in Fargo, eventually found a volunteer to drive the lost drummer to the airport.
Upon Colburn's arrival in St. Paul, Murdoch tweeted out, "Thanks for your help folks. We have Richard on a plane now, so everything is ok. He's in his pyjamas, sitting with a mimosa." The band ended up playing their show and everything turned out for the best.
