Word is that Clear Channel axed the rest of the tour after the Friday night debacle in Philly. I can't blame them. 2 cancellations within the first 3 weeks of a tour isn't going to win them any friends in the industry. I'll always have a soft spot for GNR, so I'm a bit disappointed in this. I can't blame those who say "I told you so", but whatever. I was happy to at least see them at least once.
DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?
SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.
Evidently IRS Records, who has so much of my early income, is launching a bunch of digital content soon. 1. Anyone know if their back catalog will be available 2. Anyone good on their roster these days?
