There was a huge underground scene..and it went from hard rock to crappy garage rock overnight..it was a shitty time to be in a rock band here, unless you were a White Stripes rip off. Plus, there were other bands already doing that in that scene..(NONE of which I cared for) I guess you had to be here.. So in that sense, many feel he did kill rock as they knew it..not everyone likes that style...and many feel a band with out a bassist isn't really a band. Plus, he LIED about Meg being his sister, which is just creepy and weird. Detroit does suck as far local music goes, and most of the artists that do go national are not a real representation of what is really going on here...or was..I haven't been actively gigging since 2015.
