So they buried Arthur “Killer” Kane on Saturday, and bands like The Killers still live. Does anyone see the irony ? lol The New York Dolls represented freedom and going against the norm of what’s expected of a band, and The Killers do exactly what they’re told and do exactly what’s expected of them, because they’re more image than substance, and they want oh so badly to make it. Fuck. That’s what’s wrong with the music scene in general today. Too many bands willing to compromise whatever integrity they may have in order to get the bitches and the bling bling. When you see a band like the Circle Jerks doing an ad for Vans, you can go well, they deserve it, and they’ve paid their dues. But when bands today try to peddle their one hit song to every commercial and movie soundtrack and video game, it’s enough to make you sick. Oh well. I try not to think about it too much, otherwise I get pissed off, and I don’t wanna do that. So anyways, I know for sure that The Loud Pipes are not playing this Sat., but we will be doing the show sometime in early Aug., so better late than never. I posted the latest Tour Diary entry (The Seattle gig, where Hank was caught jacking off in the van) and you can click here to read all about it. I’m so glad that Howard Stern is back live on the air, and I’ve been spending a lot of my time hanging out on his bulletin board. It’s addicting, I tell ya. So yeah... I’ve been spending my time talking to this totally hott goth girl, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that things work out between us. I’m also keeping my fingers crossed that the Touring offer I got from The Dirty Babies works out as well. All I ask guys is a van to sleep in, some tacos to eat and a nice supply of weed and alcohol, and I’ll tour with ya wherever ya want to go! lol Not much of anything else going on band wise, so someone write to me and keep me entertained!
