I know i said i was leaving this place but i have some stuff thats on my mind.

Why all the hate for Chris Holmes?
The guy has been slagged all over the interbutts for his latest videos/albums and i dont understand why? I for one absolutely dig what hes doing...yea he's made some racial comments....so what thats his right to do so.

And yes he is obviously addled by drugs and alcohol....what surving rocker isnt? Last i checked Hendrix,Morrison,Joplin etc
...have all died from drugs and drinking (same stuff Chris gets greif over)

His latest works i think embody the true spirit of Rock n roll and is much more honest than alot of garbage polluting the airwaves these days.

I do understand that his music isnt for everyone and thats A OK
But why all the hate? I personally feel he deserves some respect. The man does and says what he wants,when he wants,how he wants....what dosent rock about that?

Please elaborate.

Oh i agree, im just confused as to why he's received so much hate over things that plenty of our rock heros have said and done in spades. It dosent make since?


Maybe its Einsteins theory on the difference between insanity and genious? They are inly seperated by success.


And id like to add "chronological relevance".

Well yeah if he made racist comments then heck, I'd slag him to, if I knew who he was. But for doing drugs, I agree with everyone else who has posted. Tons of other artist have done drugs and shit, so yeah. That was really unnecessary lol.

The man is a hard rock/metal icon thats indisputable....just seems like that sentiment has fallen to the wayside, and thats a damn shame!

Hell alot of the people that have smashed this guy are probably the same guys who had his pictures on they're walls as kids.

Evryone worships Ozzy and wipes their ass with Chris when they are nearly the same person...

Does it have something to do with him being in a glam metal band?



I wouldnt call WASP "glam" more shock rock/heavy metal although they are regularly roped into the mix with the "glam" bands by people who dont know any better.

Holmes has wothout a doubt penned many a mighty riff!

I honestly just wanna see the guy finally get his due and not be bashed by people who are obviously clueless.
#22
Oh he's that guy in that movie who's drunk in the pool and swearing in front of his mom. He's a bad egg and I'm not surprised nobody likes him.

Yep thats the guy. You wanna discuss some other rock hero proclivities? I beleive Pete Townsend was in posession of large quantities of child pornography, no? Chuck Berry abducted a girl 14 year old for "inappropriate purposes"...Keith Richards allegedly mixed his fathers ashes with cocaine and snorted him? Led Zeppelin molested a groupie with some sort of aquatic creature. Shall we dig deeper into the carton of "bad eggs"?


I thinks its high time people come to terms with the fact that all human beings including myself are monsters on ine level or another!!!

Sorry to hear that. They were a band that went through a few sonic metamorphosis, so there's some songs/albums that are great and there are some that weren't.

Thunderhead is a sweet classic metal song.

Eh they look close enough appeal wise. I don't even know one song by them tbh.

They are more visually similar to the likes of Alice Cooper/Sabbath.

And you should definitely give they're first album a listen if your into heavy riffs and fist pumping anthems.

Also the headless children is another must have for any self respecting metalhead Holmes guitar work was exceptional on that album.

The fact that Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy were serial killers doesn't excuse Gary Ridgway's crimes. I think your logic is a bit off here...

Further, you've made the cardinal error of assuming life is, or even should be, fair.

It's not.

Quote by soundgarden1986
but there werent even electric guitars when the WASPs were around

how can he be a heavy metal guitarist

He's made of lead.
#37
Maybe because he's a really mediocre musician who got famous from being in a band whose only schtick was shock value?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Hmmmm...then i suppose we should start bashing Alice Cooper,KISS,every single punk band ever..... and so on for not being great musicians?


And if its just "shock value" why are there platinum selling albums?
