It took me awhile to even figure out exactly what I’d said that pissed off all the Kiss trolls and as far as I can tell they’re mad because I called Ace and Peter alcoholic junkies, like that’s not common knowledge…. The most hilarious part is [the trolls] also, in their posts go on and on and ON about how I look! Apparently I’m a fat, stupid, Side Show Bob looking freak that none of them have ever heard of who has no right to talk shit about Ace and Peter. Ace and Peter, two grown men who made a fortune wearing Kabuki make up as a result of being even uglier than I am. You know why they wore make up? Because they needed it!

Arguably the nicest guys to survive the grunge era: Krist (Nirvana, Sweet 75, Eyes Adrift), Paul (Ministry, Blackouts, Lard, Revolting Cocks, Pigface, USSA, 1000 Homo DJ’s), Steve (Mudhoney, Green River), & Buzz (Melvins, Fantomas, Venomous Concept) hugging it up after Buzz’s solo acoustic show in Portland. Buzz is putting on his best “I hate having my picture taken” face.

The Spokane show went well. There were lots of people and even one loaded mom, who brought her 8 year old daughter and had her front and center during my set. During one of my breaks she LOUDLY proclaimed to me and everyone else that this was her daughter’s first ever show. I told the daughter that since it was her first show ever that she needed to understand that what I was going to do was slash both of my wrists and bleed all over the place and then take off my diaper. From then on at other concerts if the performers don’t do that, then she’ll know she’s getting ripped off.

For some reason people like [Prince] and I’ve never understood it. He’s supposedly an amazing guitarist … compared to what, you know? Compared to who? If I was gonna write down a list of guitarists who are my favorites, he wouldn’t even be in my top thousand. It’s like elevator mall music. My mom could tap her foot to it. I don’t want to hear the sound of doves crying, I want to hear the sounds of doves dying.
