While I think Ronnie's a tool like most people here, if he told ISS no drugs on tour and make them agree to it before leaving, and they brought drugs on tour, he's sadly within his right to kick them off.
love ISS. Hate everything about Ronnie. Glad they're not touring with that moron now.
And on that note, anyone who looks down on a bunch of young guys in a rock band because they got caught partying needs a reality check. Especially when they themselves, you know, killed a man.
Uhhh... you have zero idea what you're talking about. Killed a man? Not true. He was there when someone else killed a man. Caught partying? Not true. they were caught with drugs. Needs a reality check? He had one, a prison sentence. Hence why he no longer wants to be around a bunch of kids who are anything but professional. Head spinning...
I remember when I was touring and we brought ETF on their first tour ever. They were always stoned, were stealing our beers, would get at the venue 5 minutes before doors and they were convincing kids(ie. underages) to leave right after their sets to party with them.
doesn't ISS just smoke weed? is that even a drug anymore? i mean ultimately it's the headliner's decision who they want on and for what reasons, but still.
i'm not sure of too many bands out there in this 'scene' that don't at least have one member that blazes.
just think of all those bands on warped. i can name only a few that didn't do any partying at all.
