BANGKOK (AFP) - An American tourist was allegedly stabbed to death by three Thai musicians after he refused to stop singing at a bar in a popular tourist resort, police said on Wednesday. Bobby Ray Carter, 51, died after he was stabbed twice in the chest while his son Adam, 27, suffered a stab wound to his arm, during a fight with members of the house band from the Longhorn Saloon early on Wednesday at Ao Nang beach in Krabi. Police said the three musicians were arrested at the scene and confessed to stabbing the Americans. Mr Carter had joined the musicians on stage for a singalong, but a row broke out when he refused to stop singing as the band took a break.
