By Robert L Ross | May 3, 2013

We were rock and roll; we had come from punk rock backgrounds, but really, there’s different ways to look at the punk rock thing. And the way I think me and Scott looked at it from where we had been was that it was the real rock and roll at that time.

In the terrible “Rock Of Ages” movie, they go out of their way to mock 1980s boy bands, but in all sincerity, Culture Club and Wham were better than any metal band of the 80s with the exceptions of Van Halen, Metallica and Guns N Roses. Just to put it all in perspective for you.

By Alyson Camus | March 5, 2012

How can you call it quits when Bowie is a big fan of your band? But seriously, I don’t think Bowie’s fandom was a motivation, and the band still has to release a statement why they decided to reform now.
