Instead of posting personal thank you’s to everyone who messaged us with positive feedback about this blog, we decided to just say Thank You with this post.
When we started this blog we knew it would be met with mixed emotions about the content. We had to make a choice early on as to whether we only posted positive commentary or whether we would post the good, the bad and sometimes the ugly. We felt that it would not be a true and accurate presentaion of the fandom’s feelings if we only posted “the good and sweet comments” so once again, whether we like or agree with the confessions, with a few exceptions, we post them.
To those of you who get that, thank you for your love and support.
To those of you who don’t get that, you don’t need to follow us.

We don’t usually reblog other people’s stuff but we think this is worth a REBLOG.

My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life
“I was a young boy when I first tasted stardom - all the decadence of being the cliched rock star was at my fingertips. So sure, I went out and bought the big house, big car and went to the pub and bought everyone a drink. I played the big shot - and the moron - for the first couple of years. But being grounded all came down to the fact I never left New Jersey. People there were not impressed by celebrity. They’d look at me and say: ‘Enough of this bullshit. Just play the guitar or get the hell out.’ The stupidity of this generation, where you can be more famous for being a drug addict than for writing a great song, never appealed to me.” -JBJ (The Sunday Mail 2008)
