Makes complete sense: $$$

Chemical Love 04/05/12 11:05 AM

Is that bad?

Christian Wagner 04/05/12 11:09 AM

It makes sense from a musical standpoint.

Lol, good to see they're staying in the loop

Don't you need a singer to go on tour?

I think they're not too into the loop of what's happened over the past year. Sounded like he listened to the band's music and it clicked with them

ScorchOurBodies 04/05/12 11:18 AM

I would see this just for DGD.

So what you're saying is he's fucking clueless.

According to jonny's facebook he just finished a 30 day rehab which might be enough to convince the rest of the band to let him tour, despite the fact hes probably not clean. Also the used might understand his struggle more than a lot of bands. I can see it

I thought Jonny was hiding out in Canada cause he was on the run from the law?

Let's all cross our fingers the band is not that dumb.

PandaBear! 04/05/12 11:28 AM

obviously The Used need a top quality band to piggy-back off of, understandable move...

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

MJSchmidt 04/05/12 11:35 AM

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

Jake Jenkins 04/05/12 11:42 AM

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.

seanthethief 04/05/12 11:45 AM

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

t00latef0rr0ses 04/05/12 11:48 AM

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.

BuiltToFall 04/05/12 11:51 AM

da fuq?

Viva Sonata 04/05/12 12:07 PM

i don't. fucking. even.

DGD is a top quality band?

ChaseTx 04/05/12 12:11 PM

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

TenSpeed 04/05/12 12:20 PM

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

Born_For_This 04/05/12 12:42 PM

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.

Oh, I see. I really hope that the rehab stuff is true and he can actually manage to keep clean.

dmcaloon 04/05/12 12:48 PM

Well The Used playing gives me the excuse to buy tickets to a DGD show and not be disappointed when they drop off a week before tour starts.

rickman 04/05/12 01:48 PM

This interview is an old one, so everybody can stop crapping their pants. You can tell by that question "Vulnerable is coming out in a couple of weeks. You’ve got two singles that are out so far. How are people’s reactions to the singles?" The tour already has announced it's support, and DGD seems to be jumping on the All-Stars tour anyway.

Past evidence says they are.

betweenvega 04/05/12 02:37 PM

I always like to give my input on the Jonny Craig issue when he comes up, because I'm a recovering alcoholic/heroin addict, idk, I just feel obligated sometimes.

If he turned himself in, went to rehab, and is now living in a structured living environment (aka halfway house) which seems to be the case, he could be on his way to a sober life. I know he's been in and out of treatment before, but it sounds like he really bottomed out if he was hiding out in Canada, with probable stints of homelessness, multiple days without getting high and withdrawing, etc etc. And, the fact that he turned himself in probably means jail time sounded like a better option than whatever he was doing in Canada. There's an old saying in the recovery circle----when it sucks more to use than it is to quit, than it's quittin' time.

Burt could be helpful to him if he's in recovery. The most important thing when getting sober is to surround yourself with others who have been through it and can guide you through the shit show that is early recovery.

There's just as good a chance, though, if not a bigger chance, that he'll slip again and do some more fucked up shit before he dies/finally gets sober. But from the way he does heroin, if he goes back to it, he'll probably die.

SweetThye 04/05/12 02:42 PM

No... A Lot Like Birds!!!!

Tele72 04/05/12 02:46 PM

This would be awesome, but I agree it doesn't make a lot of musical sense.

Beej 347 04/05/12 02:48 PM

just bring matt geise back on tour, fuck JC. he doesn't deserve any of that.

dawgkta6669 04/05/12 04:32 PM

would be awesome...if there's a bay area date of the tour or sacramento (dgd's hometown & warped tour won't be playing there this summer)

therookielot 04/05/12 09:07 PM

bring back zac gavin dance

Gumbyjag 04/06/12 02:58 AM

I would see that show.

kbomb001 04/06/12 11:14 AM

Jonny should not tour for the rest of the year. The Used should pick another band to tour with.

the_used_fan 04/06/12 02:27 PM

never heard of dance gavin dance but after a quick google search they been around for about 5 years but i dont think i ever heard any of their songs...
