    Got this via email this morning. I've emailed Sarge to see if it's legit but haven't got a reply yet. What do you guys think?

    Hollywood Jan 2nd.

    -Today Emerald City Recordings of Hollywood has issued a statement to the effect of www.hardknockz.com and www.dlrarmy.com have been forcibly shut down and removed from the
    internet via the server company they host.

    -Issued statement from the Emerald City camp states the two websites have been systematically posting harassing, libel, defamation and slanderous writings on both websites message forums. The two were on the same server and were effectively shut down January 2nd.

    -Emerald City Recordings of Hollywood have been under attack by the webmasters of both URL's as far back as 2 years said a spokesperson for the independent label. "We have had enough of this and there are several other internet businesses/people we will be coming after as well. We consider these internet terrorists taking Freedom Of Speech for granted kinda like the Taliban and we (Emerald City) are the United States Army and were coming after you... Mr. Dickinson your next just like Sadam".

    -The incidents stem from a battle over rock radio station KNAC who Emerald City claims tried to charge them for posting on a free message board about a release from one of their artists. "Basically KNAC (Rob Jones) thought we were stupid enough to fall for that extortion and we told them no, were not interested in your station and we don't need KNAC. KNAC holds no power over making or breaking a band." Since that time listeners and staff members have been going online posting hatred, malicious rumor, slander etc. regarding one of Emerald City's artists. webmaster of www.hardknockz.com has been harassing the Emerald City label since. Another KNAC fan an employee at The Arizona Republic (Gannet) was also fired because of his activities in harassing Emerald City.

    -The www.dlrarmy.com is owned by He also hosts www.hardknockz.com on his server for . If there's anything to be learned here kids it's don't metal with evil over the internet. "and some of the employees at UVDI (Ultra Violet Devices Inc. in Valencia) have purchased several domain names claiming they are going to launch them if we don't purchase them, one being held by another internet terrorist named Saeid Yomtobian of Malibu Ca. Mr. Yomtobian has a long track record of trying to impersonate companies by buying up miss-spelled URL's that closely resemble the trademarked version. He wants $250.00 per name... He has been sued many times. When asked why he's attacking Emerald City by trying to extort money from them to stop these offensive URL's from being opened his reply was, my boss asked me to do it."

    -Emerald City Records spokesperson said they have tried contacting David Lee Roth's management to see why an official Roth site would condone such activity but have had no reply. www.dlrarmy.com claims to be Dave's official website. Would he appreciate the way his name is being used? I wonder.

    Sounds like crap to me - some of the statements made are totally over the top - all that stuff about the taliban etc, and I can't remember the army ever laying claim to official status.

    Looks like rubbish IMHO.

    Yeah, that's what I thought too. I'm thinking maybe the label read a lot of the posts saying how the Army should be Dave's official site.

    I wasn't really a regular at the site, but do remember reading stuff from Dave (hardknockz) about some Bernard Edwards dude. At first I thought he was talking about the bass player in Chic (now deceased). When I looked up www.emeraldcityrecordings.com I found his name there as one of the artists.

    I'd love this to be untrue, but it doesn't look good. It's a very elaborate hoax if it's not true.

    I don't think the DLRArmy ever claimed to be Dave's official site, but I have read posts where members claimed it was the best Dave site on the net, as well as a better site than the one Dave has as his official site, and in my opinion, they are doing nothing but telling the truth in stating as much. Whatever is going on, there's no such thing as bad press, and there's Dave being mentioned in a AP press release.

    Well I spoke with Sarge about a week ago, and he told me that he wouldn't be back onnline until May, because he is going into officers training and boot camp. He will become a Lt.Hmmmmm I really hope this isn't true, and I can't see how a record label could shut down the websites, it's only a website, and what happened to freedom of Speech??? I mean look at the crap that gets published in the Enquirer and Globe and that other BS. I think this is BS. Hell I would go to the Army all the time, but I don't recall any postings about this unknown artist...OK where's POJO, he might know sometihng about this...

    The problem is with BurstNet who are a shitty host.

    The mentally deranged psychopath in question has nothing to do with it.

    What in the fuck is this bullshit.

    I talked to BurstNet not a fucking couple of hours ago. Frankly, that conversation isn't anyone's business...but I have it copied...and can, without a doubt call this a bald face lie...

    This is total and utter bullshit...total bullshit.

    I'm gonna ask someone to get rid of this thread...cause this is a giant fucking lie...

    unfuckingbelieveable...

    After waiting six hours for a reply from Sarge, I decided to go with it.

    Whether it's true or not, if Sarge really is out of action until April, how can you guys fix the problem?

    Grant, we are in the middle of fixing the problem as we speak. Read your private messages at this site.

    We've been in contact with burstNET all freakin' week. Of course...I didn't realize I'd have to fuckin' post everything we've been doing from the general masses to oppose 1 e-mail. 1 e-mail is not ellaborate to say the least. Especially when there's been a known person stalking the webbies of a couple of Army hosted sites. 6 hours Grant is a short time to hold onto breaking news about VH...but this is flat out bullshit man. Flat out bullshit.
