kind of figured this would happen
there's nothing original there, if he wasn't the former AA vocalist they wouldn't get signed, period.

I suppose I tend to view it in terms of his old band being annoying and not being able to write a song in a key that isn't C# minor, but I can understand this point of view.

This is what I was thinking...He's a decent vocalist though. And I still like AA! better.

Because he's a shitty person. He stole Settings equipment, denied it, and then threatened them with violence.

I'm in no way defending that but i was just voicing the business side of why he signed with Rise.
Akon throws kids off the stage, Michael Jackson hangs his kids out the window...Artists man, they do some crazy shit!

Sometimes I really wish book titles were trademarked and couldnt be associated with awful music.
