You got it way wrong from my post.
Tommy Lee is the biggest name regarding celebrities (but who cares about that!?). I believe more people are familiar with Newsteds former band's music than Tommy's wouldn't you agree?
And no, not all GnR fan's consider Clarke a jerkoff - did you take a poll or something
Izzy was awesome and wrote sweet songs, but Gilby is still a great player and "filled in" for Izzy nicely.
What we do agree on is, how the hell did Jason sign up for this gig!?
Lee, ok I can see it, he's about attention and being famous. Clarke, he's relatively a nobody and can only go up from here. But Jason
huh? I shudder to think what his ex-mates are thinking.
Overall, I love all 3 bands these guys came from so I dig them as musicians. Last night's show was the best performance yet for most of the contestants but I still can't picture that band behind one of the these singers.
