Paul DiAnno epic fail

We all know what might happen when you call in sick and go to a bar: there's a risk of someone taking a picture, putting it on facebook, your boss discovering it and getting angry at you. Now, could somebody explain that to Paul?
Ex-IRON MAIDEN Singer PAUL DI'ANNO Faces Jail Time For Falsely Claiming Benefits - Feb. 11, 2011

According to the Daily Mail, former IRON MAIDEN singer Paul Di'Anno (real name: Paul Andrews) is facing jail time after he falsely collected U.K. government benefits by claiming he suffered nerve damage to his back that prevented him from working.

Di'Anno, 52, admitted swindling taxpayers out of more than £45,000 (approximately $72,000) by claiming a range of incapacity benefit, housing benefit and council tax handouts, by stating he was to ill to work, between 2002 and 2008. He claimed to be suffering from Sciatica, or nerve damage to the back.

D'Anno was reportedly busted when investigators at Department Of Work And Pensions (DWP) received an anonymous tip that he was still singing. They then found videos and pictures on YouTube and the rocker's own web site of Di'Anno "energetically leaping around on stage, singing to fans around the world." ... mID=153792

He should try to get disability compensation for not being able to sing anymore.
