I’ve been struggling for some time, to figure out what the hell I am supposed to do with all this passion I have for this band. Honestly, I don’t know why I have it. I know that for a long time, I needed something in my life, and they supplied that.
I love them all personally, for the different things that I’ve gained in my life from what they have contributed. And for that I will always be grateful.
With this new album that was released yesterday, and not completely understanding what that lawsuit was all about, has left me with a lot of questions, in which I guess I have to finally try to find the answers to. I didn’t think I wanted to know, but now… I really think I have to.
In my line of work, I have to look at a lot of contracts now, and I really got to wondering what was their suit all about. Was the record company suing them? I think so. And that raised questions for me, why.
What did they not do? What were they refusing to do? What was it truly all about? D id their record company fail to follow through, and if so, on what? Which then got me thinking about the whole American Capitalist thing, and wondering… was that when they signed the contract? If so… Hmmm, just got me thinking about a lot of stuff.
I can appreciate wanting it all, and doing what it takes to get there. But where is the line of when you signed something, and when you decided ah, I don’t give a shit about what I signed. I don’t want that anymore, and who cares.
That’s what I see every damn day. EVERY day. People signing things, and failing to follow through.
I know about failing to follow through, I’m the queen of failing to follow through. Thing is though, when I sign something, that’s a different story. I’ve promised something to someone in exchange for something.
When did that stop meaning anything to anyone?
I think that’s what’s on my mind lately, and guess i have to do some research to find out the truth. I put a lot into those guys, and I really appreciated the work that they’ve done, because I felt that they meant what they said. What they represented.
I can’t help but think of a veteran that they have supported, these guys are very supportive of the troops. How is their situation different from anyone of them? I mean, what about a guy who signed up, and then decided he didn’t like what he signed up for. He can’t just walk away, now can he? Or put up a stink so he doesn’t have to do something. It’s not that easy… So I guess, I just got to thinking about the questions.
No disrespect to the guys, I am grateful that they are still going. I guess, I would have just liked to have seen it all in a more positive light.
