e interrupted Krause's explanations for less-than-stellar performance? According to Krause's account in San Jose Mercury News, David Packard showed a much tougher side when he interrupted Krause's explanations for less-than-stellar performance. I would like to know it is " he interrupted Krause's explanations due to Krause's less-than-stellar performance" or "he interrupted Krause's explanations that are about less-than-stellar performance". Thanks. And "explanation" should be followed by "on sth" or "for sth"? Thanks.

Krause gave a less-than stellar(not very good) performance at some point in the past. Packard was tough (was critical) on Krause when Krause tried to make excuses for his "less-than-stellar" performance.

"Explain" isn't followed by "on". I guess Krause gave a poor (less than stellar) performance and was interrupted when he tried to explain it. Your rewrites were a little unclear.
