DON SLATER

“You just look to the old Pork Chop Express and take his advice on a dark and stormy night, alright? When some wild-eyed eight foot tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head against a bar room wall, looks you crooked in the eyes and asks if you’ve paid your dues? […]

Jamey Jasta To Open For The Misfits

Jamey Jasta

Remember when Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed released a solo album? It was a few years back, if I recall correctly, and the reception was rather lukewarm to the music, if I’m not mistaken.
