One of the more hated bands in music today is Nickleback, they seem to be the brunt of most jokes and worldwide disdain and I don’t know why, because they have had some songs in the charts and most of all they have been quite the success in spite of it all.
This is their drummer, his name is Daniel Adair, and someone in Florida impersonated him and ordered 25 grand worth of musical instruments.

45-year-old Lee Harvey Koenig, who according to his Facebook page performs under the comical name Mr. Wooky, apparently realized that he had a similar drum setup as Adair, and used that information to impersonate the drummer. He ordered $25,000 in microphones and drum parts from a manufacturer in Vienna, Austria, and had them delivered to a Florida address.
What kind of wacky parents did he have in the first place, he was born AFTER the assassinationof John F Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald, why would you name your son Lee Harvey??
Police were notified on January 19th that something was amiss.The company then contacted a representative for Adair, who confirmed that he had not ordered the gear.
Koenig, whose Facebook profile claims he is a studio and touring musician who works for Sony Music, was arrested on February in Port St. Lucie, Florida and released on $18,750 bond. This is also not the first time he has been arrested for fraud. In addition to the latest allegations, Koenig was sentenced to three years in prison in 2009 for fraudulently collecting $78,000 in 2007.
WBAB welcomes Nickleback to the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater July 1, and “Mr Wooky” wont be there, my guess is he will be breaking rocks in the hot sun!
