I would absolutely love for this to happen. Only thing that could possibly make it better would be putting Jonny Craig on Warped Tour.

Somehow, some way, DGD and Johnny Craig always find a way to get back in the news.

does anybody else not find this surprising at all?

Nah. Over a month ago, he was making a few posts that he was going to "man up" and turn himself in. He then went quiet on Facebook for about a month, if not longer. He's supposedly living in some structured living area now after his time in rehab. That being said, even if he is finally clean, he isn't ready to tour yet. I'd feel much better if he stayed off of touring for a year or so... No matter how much I love to hear him sing live.

haha this is amazing. I used to listen to their first record non-stop when I was a teenager. MIND BLOWN.

Johnny has a great voice and a lot of talent, but we all know he is just a huge fuck up. Anyone who believes he is getting is act together is a moron. Same story over and over again.

DGD is a top quality band?

ChaseTx 04/05/12 11:11 AM

Great, if this puts pressure on DGD to make a decision to move on without Jonny.

TenSpeed 04/05/12 11:20 AM

as long as they do west coast.

From what I understand about warrants unless you commited a violent crime usually the police won't hunt you down. As long as he doesnt get pulled over or in trouble he can probably be free here

Well perhaps if Jonny really did complete rehab and is clean/getting clean, then touring with Bert (An ex-addict) will help him turn it around.

Agreed with this. I would rather he got clean, wrote some music with the DGD guys and put out a kick-ass record. Then toured that and DTBM II.
