lol, he sure didn't have a problem hosting a radio show glomming onto the music of others ... fvckin' poser.
Loved me some BF back in the day, glad I never heard that interview then, would have ruined the script with his pretentiousness.
Even if I took off all my clothes, I have no idea what I’d even ask them. It would be like the Chris Farley Show.
I have that shirt. Makes people furrow their brow.
looked like Paul was trying to be funny and gene was being a dick
I wouldn’t get too bent outta shape over this. If this is how they treat people, they’ll never make it in show business. I give ‘em a year tops.
It's an butthole move, but I respect KISS' prerogative in protecting the commercial value of their brand.
I have neither love for Rollins nor his behaviour. You can be punk, but you don't have to behave like you're overcompensating for not having a date on your prom night.
I’ve met Henry before, my wife has met him a few times. He’s actually pretty cool to his fans these days. He used to do spoken word tours, and after the show he’d come out of his bus and meet with fans.
He would sign anything, and basically talk about anything you wanted to talk about. He’s very stoic and stone faced, but friendly and no ego.
I’ve seen that interview posted, and well yeah, he’s a dick there. I think he was a bit too aggro as a youngster but has mellowed out. The comments section seems to indicate the kid interviewing was trying to push his buttons with the “hows the tour” question, but Henry probably could have handled it better.
Greg Ginn is a turd though. One of my favorite guitar players, but man, what a knob.
V, I stood next to Henry at City Gardens as he "mocked" Venom, doing "cutesy" Devil horns. A clown. I like Henry-he has an "act." Venom blew Flag away that night! I saw Greg play in three CRAP bands in one night at the Kyber. I did not back down to him at the bar, I told him these bands were JUNK, he should swallow his pride and rejoin Flag, then I made him sign my PAF. Attitude? Yawn, come to Philly were attitude is THE LAW.
You ever heard of masochism?
Lol totally different, vh did the no brown M&M's thing because they were pissed because it seemed as though no promoters were actually reading their rider. So they did it to prove a point. Axl, yes, just s sick who needs to get over his Jesus complex.
I saw him during a spoken word tour back around 1990. He was so full of himself it hurt. Nothing wrong with being confident but he crossed well over the line towards arrogance and spent about 75 minutes just tearing other people down to make himself look important. I lost all respect for him that day.
I wish Ace was there for that interview. He would have giggled uncomfortably the entire time.
I love gene's reaction to Ace in this video.
The entertainment in that video is to watch Gene!
When Ace makes a "joke" about kids being sad that they overpaid for Kiss tickets, you could feel Gene's disgust.
By the end of the Tom Snyder interview, even I would have been calling the lawyers to look over Ace's contract, and started the search for Tommy Thayer.
Working with Ace must have been a huge chore for Gene. Gene takes his schtick seriously.
I went to eBay to buy a Maiden shirt and got this one...
I did it wrong.
Oh well maybe next time I'll grab that Stranger in a Strange Land shirt.
Yeah, I've never met him, so my opinion is worth every penny you've paid for it.
I do pay for internet, so in a way I did pay for your opinion.
I guess it depends on the day of the week you meet/see some rockstars. Might be good might be bad. Might be Fezz.
V, I would shake your hand, look you in the eyes, nod....I was raised right. I'm courteous to ALL, even JERKS, especially JERKS, they do not understand.
I had a friend that worked at Hank's publishing company. She loved Hank...until he fired her for answering a fan letter for him from a guy in prison, which was apparently verboten. She didn't like him so much after that. But while she was there she took my SOA 7" in and had him sign it for me.
I had another friend that is/was a higher up at SST. He loves Greg. I met Greg once in Cleveland at a GONE show in 1994. He was cool and signed my BF t-shirt. GONE sucked though. Everything he's done since BF has sucked, imo.
