    Dave has become the recluse artist.

    If he doesn't have something to promote, he ain't going to be saying much. I think he is smart enough to know that his day is past.

    Gene pulled the ol' "I didn't mean to hurt your feelings" condescending bullshit apology. Get the fuck outta here. If you're going to be a dick, stand your ground. Still, the hypocrisy is the most entertaining part.

    That's not an apology, in my opinion that makes it worse.

    Gene, you're a dick, you know it, everyone knows it. Just embrace it and move on with your day, it's not like anyone not going to your shows is because of your little spat with DLR.

    I agree with you there. He repeatedly mentioned hurting feelings. So I think he was making a point (much like a lot of people currently do; who say for political reasons, that the world decisions and social media are based on feelings) to send a message, but make it appear like an apology. Gene did get one thing absolutely correct that he has diarrhea of the mouth, and his words are word vomit. He kind of faded off when mentioning the fat Elvis, bloated Elvis comments. Almost implying he didn't say that or if he did that it wasn't quoted properly. This goof made him self look worse. I hope this whole thing gets dropped now. Hahaha.

    Yikes!! Tough Crowd!!

    1- Surprised as hell Gene actually apologized much less even mentioned it at all....

    You realize who GENE SIMMONS is right??....

    He is GENE SIMMONS!!

    So you know....it is a pretty big admission of bad judgement. Verbal Diareaa as he put it.

    2- The explanation is extremley logical....the printed article edited out other comments between Gene's first comments about David being one of the best....then the comments about Elvis's later years were afterwards....not necessarly about David at all...

    The article salaciously compiled Gene's commentary into a tabloid style putdown to purposely gain headlines....

    This kinda thing happens all the time.

    It's not Gene's fault in this instance & he was big enough to bring it up & apologize even though he really said nothing cruel or untrue. Just taken out of context. But he owned up to it nonetheless.

    So that's that. All good. Just an innocent misunderstanding is all.

    The media interviewer article writing punks are the ones to blame.

    Technically they are ALL " past their prime", or " over the hill", " Washed Up", "Oldies Nostalgia Acts", or whatever you want to call them...

    Not just KISS & DLR....but almost ALL of the great legendary iconic classic rock acts of the 70's....

    The Who, Rolling Stones, included.

    Iron Maiden always put out new albums so not sure if they count but most big touring acts are out there performing their catolog & selling t shirts & reissues deluxe editions & whatnot. Nothing wrong with that. Rock fans are enjoying the entertainment. If we weren't there'd be no audience or market.

    Guns & Roses. Hello.

    " Past their prime"....


    Hahahaha hahaha hahaha hahaha

    Are you freakin kidding.

    They are ALL past their prime.

    40 years ago. FFS. Get real.

    The topic enticed me to dial up some Youtubes of DLR on the KISS tour & this is the first full show I found from Manchester.....which I just copied & watched tonight just now....which is what enticed me to post.....

    EVERYBODY must WATCH & LISTEN to this YT video from Manchester 2020!!!####

    SEE & HEAR with your own EYES & EARs DLR & his new band last year .......

    Give it a click for at least 2 or 3 tunes & YOU will see & HEAR DLR & the band sound absolutley spectacular!!!!

    I myself was just blown away....that guitarist Al Estrada is absolutley badass!!!! Motherfucking killing it. Sensational. Extremely impressive.

    I personally never liked EVH tribute guitarists...but HOLY COW....This guy....AL ESTRADA is ABOVE & beyond the other average EVH clones....not kidding....He sounds absolutley wicked....

    Plus- They do another tune not on Dave's albums....Fresh Out....

    Very surprised how cool this is....

    I blame them not Gene on the article titles saying THEY dropped Dave which is bullshit apparently and most likely and it makes him look bad. But, Gene's apology was still shit with all the repeated "hurting feelings" remarks, plus he did say "And then, I don’t know what happened to him… something. And you get modern-day Dave." That's the entertaining hypocrisy I was referring to.

    Killer guitarist. Killer amps too. John Suhr knows what he's doing.

    It's a tribute band with a tribute guitarist but he still one hell of a fucking player. I'm impressed with some EVH clones (and some people who play EVH stuff) but at the end of the day I want to hear them venture outside of the box, to see what they can really do. Anybody can learn a song and solo note for note. Make the song breathe and have just as much life when you're playing it as it did when the band who recorded the song played it. And if that means not playing things note for note, that's fine.

    I want to hear their vibrato. I want to hear them bend a note. Things many cover players just dont get. One of the only guys on YT I've seen who's been able to capture this, when it comes to EVH, is CHSGuitars (formerly guitarwannabee).

    Al Estrada is one of those guitar players you can tell isn't just an EVH clone and it's what makes him so great at playing like EVH. He reminds me of Pete Thorn. Al could probably play many different styles. Listen to him play 'Fresh Out'. Let me see a YT player that's playing EVH play like that without copying it note for note. 99% cannot.

    Plus...seeing Dave as an opening act, will never not be weird.

    I think being an opening act actually helps DLR.

    For someone who at his age struggles with keeping his voice, having to sing for 45 minutes a night instead of two hours has to be a help.

    Side note, saw him open for Bad Company in 1999, and he was damn good.

    that gene simmons apology was pathetic. I honestly don't think there is a less likeable person out there to tell you the truth.
