    I loved Jake's work with Ozzy and Badlands. But that was just...

    If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. With that been said, those Fender reverse pawn shop basses look kinda neat!

    Jake seemed a little rusty but it's the band that really needs work. Bass player seems board to tears. Drummer has no power in his playing and singer is covered in the youtube comments.

    Jake was a tad rusty. His band was hard to listen to. Ended up sounding like a modest cover band.

    Yeah, I saw him play on That Metal Show a while back, not very good showing. I really like Jake, hope he knocks the rust off.

    That singer should put his shirt back on.

    The drummer too. Fat, sweaty, tattoo covered dudes need to cover themselves.

    very sad indeed. Doesn't look like he wants to be there at all.

    I keep wondering when the final Badlands album will surface.

    There was a final album cut with Johnny West on vocals. What I have heard of it was pretty good, but all I heard were studio cuts. I never got to hear a finished product.
    The stories I heard were that Jake E lee's ego and possibly substance abuse were what destroyed that band

    What a brutal business.

    I remember my brush with the "big time", playing two songs to a sold out theater of 3000, with a radio audience in the millions on NPR. Biggest performance rush of my life!

    The next weeks gig.......playing for food and beer before a minor league baseball game as people made there way from the ticket takers to the food concession area and headed for their seats. A few stopped and tapped their feet for a few moments.

    I can't imagine what people like Jake go through. Not surprising that many don't adjust too well.

    I did not even know Jake was from my home town till his new band hit the stage.

    I heard it was a lot better the San Diego Show.
