Random thought this week, I don’t really care what any rock star says about another rock star, because in most cases things are taken out of context. This week has had Ace Frehley, slamming Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, Ted Nugent calling out Sebastian Bach, Mike Portnoy on Dream Theater, Geoff Tate vs Queensryche, Dave Lombardo and Slayer, Skid Row and former members and sadly Tommy Lee calling the town of Allentown concert goers absent. Who cares? Get back to the music.
