    "A Must Read"!

    Hey all ... Here are some quotes from Roth's book "Crazy from the Heat".

    1. Ed: "No Goddamn F*cking way. Were not going to retrace any old songs or anything that remotley sounds like old songs".
    .................................................. ................................................

    2. Dave: "I was banished to a storeroom in the back of the studio, a windowless cement box where I could see nothing or here nothing". (two new songs off of Greatest Hits)
    .................................................. ...............................................

    3. Dave: "Ed does not read .. Its a muscle he does not use. He cant read a whole set of my lyrics".
    .................................................. ...............................................

    4. Dave: "I didnt realize he (Ed) was looking to throw out Michael Anthony and was rehearsing other bass players".
    .................................................. ................................................

    5. Dave: "Ed feels my reconvening with the band is somehow going to overshadow his musical abilities".
    .................................................. ................................................

    6. Ed: "So Sammy is gone .. screw him, he quit, he bailed, f*ck him"!

    Dave: "He didnt quit, they created a scenario to make him quit. Made it untenable: he had to bail".
    .................................................. ...............................................

    7. Ed: "We're not a nostalgia band .. we wont go back in time"!
    .................................................. ..............................................

    8. Ed: "If you ever talk to me like that again, I'm going to kick you in your f*cking balls. I run into you, you better wear a cup".
    .................................................. ...............................................

    And People are saying this new "2007 Tour" is going to work? Give me a Break! ... "Trainwreck heading our way"!

    been a while since i read dave's book... maybe i'll go back to it! if i remember, i think dave had mentally moved on at that point, so he kind of let it all hang out... if you're a fan and haven't read it, definitely track down a copy!

    Ok and your point is???

    That was written in 1997 i.e. ten years ago and obviously things have somewhat changed.

    Are there things you said or opinions you had in 1997 that you don't have today, just curious?

    It is an interesting and entertaining read.

    So is Sammy's little tell-all book that never saw the light of day (except on the net)

    How many of you in ten years said "I do" up at the altar and are now divorced.

    How many of you in ten years told a girl "I love you" but now hate the bitch?

    Sammy, Dave, Eddie and Alex all have lied. I really don't think Mike has lied but the others have been known to fib quite a bit.

    That was in fact a great read. It's been years, but for a book of that type it was really well written and really interesting. Since it's been 10 years, I'd imagine Dave is considering a lot of that stuff, how did he put it, "water over the dam."

    Money seems to heal old wounds with this band. The question is for how long

    Funny, some who have quoted this book in the past have acted like it was law, but now that Dave has signed on to this mess..........That was written a long time ago, it's all in the past, people change blah blah, LOL Gotta love it.

    I believe it went down exactly as he said it went down. None of the other parties mentioned have ever tried to dispute it. How is anything listed above related to today?
