Listen, I've just read some things here and I don't know what you're talkin' about that you can't play Degenerated. That just sounds phuckin' retarded. Be honest, did someone send you a cease and desist letter from 20th Century Fox when you tried to play the song, cuz dude, that just doesn't happen. And by the way 20th Century fox only owes 25% of the song, not 100%. So if you wanna play that song just do it, and if someone starts popping shit that you're not allowed, call me and I'll fix em', I'll fix em' good. As for "the guitar player must be working really hard for no money- WRONG! the songs are easy, they're punk rock, I mean c'mon it's PUNK ROCK!. Rehearsals have been free (thanx Pee Wee), the songs are easy for the new band members to learn (c'mon, it's punk rock) So big deal that there was this guy I was in rehab with, several years ago, and he started telling lies about being in Reagan Youth. He meets me and says "Such and such amount of money, all the beer you can drink, free hotel rooms" so I said "Shit yeah!", what was I supposed to say, no because some dimwits might not like it-get real. At least he hooked up the drummer (who's great) and the bassist (who's a girl-oh yeah!) who are picking up the songs that I came up with in junior high (Russell Sage that is), yeah really hard lemme tell ya'. If you wanna see Dave Insurgent, go visit his fucking headstone and take a piss on it for all I care. but if you wanna see Reagan Youth, well that's now me and my three mates bitch. And me,what did I do, I just started and finished that band in between playing in it every single fuckin' moment. So we're a farce?, just like the Germs without Darby Crash, or the New York Dolls playing in the guise of the first David Johansen solo album (Funky but Chic). So the music's only soundin' good, but it's only been three weeks since we started playing together as a band. We practicised once a week, for free no less (thanx Pee Wee) and the songs are easy to learn, they really we're written in junior high. That's not hard work, trust me. As for whatever money I'll get who cares, you don't play punk for the money, you play to have fun and that's what I'll be having Saturday night in Jersey. And yes Dave Insurgent was the star of"Reagan Youth", but I don't fuck around on the guitar like all those other New York hardcore bands that we're mentioned up there.....bitch!
