Today's Blind Items - Payback

This singer is probably C list now, but back in the day, for a brief time, he was A list along with his bandmates.  I'll call him Mr. M.  Although our singer is extremely talented, he is a massive jerk.  Back in the day, he was a rich brat whose parents indulged his every whim and hired him expensive voice coaches to help with his singing, which admittedly, was incredible.  They knew he was going to be famous rock star and wanted him to cash in.  Mr. M did become very famous and rich for a time, but because he was such a rotten person, he alienated a lot of people in the industry.  It takes a lot to do that, but our singer also made the mistake of getting involved with the young adult daughter of a high level industry executive and then tossed her away like yesterday's trash, which was a very bad idea.  Word got around about his treatment of this girl and this made him a few enemies. Because of that situation and his other behavior, what could have been a longer career ended up being a relatively short streak of success for our singer.  Even so, Mr. M still retains ownership over a a specifically beloved peice of intellectual property and a niche of very dedicated fans who still love it.  Fast forward to now, and Mr. M is trying very hard to score a deal which could possibly get him back to the A-list level. He is currently trying to schmooze someone who can back a project that has been a dream of our singer for years.  Because of all the burned bridges, he has had a difficult time getting investors in the past, so he's working this individual particularly hard to secure support for this project.  The person he's trying to reel in is also a similar personality to his and is after a peice of Mr. M's catalog. People who know our singer are laughing at him behind his back because he is so desperate in his pursuit of this backing that he does not realize he's met his match in terms of treachery.  The proposed backer is also hungry for cash  and Mr. M does not seem to realize that he could be making a very bad deal that could mean financial losses and no project at all.

The biggest jerk I know in rock, hated by his band mates even more than David Lee Roth is Sebastian Bach ex of Skid Row and he owns rock artifacts.

sandybrook said...

Mostly KISS artifacts and Skid Row master tapes and art and comic books he had collected.

Fred Durst

Though he is opening a jazz club in LAbecause it’s always been a passion (who knew?!) Didn’t realize he grew up in New Orleans

Limp Bizkit’s frontman shocked Russian media in 2015 when a national newspaper Izvestia published letters between him and the head of the Russian de-facto government of Crimea, Sergey Valeryevich Aksyonov.

“I'll make movies, TV shows, music in Crimea,” the letter declared, with Durst adding that he would be open to cooperating with the Russian government in running projects for “a great future in Crimea.”

According to the Russian-language transcript of Durst’s letter, he says he would be happy if he were granted citizenship and a “quaint, little house in Crimea”.

"I think I could be a friend of President Putin,” he is quoted as saying in the letter. “I am sure of that.... I think that President Putin will find out what sort of person I am when he looks into my eyes and he will realize that in me he has an ally that can help in many ways.”

Corey Taylor from Slipknot is amazing singer, he can do anything with his voice. Serj Tankian from System of a Down as well.

Fred Durst can't sing.

ryguy said...

Shot in the dark: Jeff Tate of Queensryche. I read he has been trying to get Mindcrime made into a rock opera like American Idiot.

@longtimereader - I knew someone who played with Sebastian and was friends with him before Skid Row. I didn't hear anything about him going to Lakefield or UCC (doesn't mean he didn't). According to this guy, he was incredibly nice to his friends.

But even I immediately thought of him for this blind, lol.

Right now he's managing some bands.

DancingInMySleep said...

John Mayer is my guess.

Truthseeker said...

There are many rock guys who are incredible singers, you just have to listen to them sing, take David Draiman from Disturbed for instance, he has an amazingly beautiful voice. Surprisingly also M. Shadows from AVenged SevenFold. as well as the amazing Chris Cornell. All have amazing singing voices, and that is just the few i mention.
I really love Limp Bizkit, Fred is from my hometown, and he is a really nice guy when he is around here, i do not know much about him around others.
Sebastian Bach is actually a pretty nice guy as well. I have to think of this one,

Fred Durst graduated from a magnet school called Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville, FL. Back in the day I did NOT like him, but I have no idea why. I knew quite a few people @ the school, so they may have told me stories?!?? However, DA is not some exclusive private school, so no idea as to who his parents paid, if this were to be him.
