She prefers to let her handiwork do the talking.
Case in point:
Syn City Cowboys
Well Wes has aged a bit more than one might expect. The photos make him look tired and pissed. Maybe they are just bad angles who knows. We all get older.
As Hearne and I discussed you have to say Wes is the only real music Rock Star to come from this area, unless you include the just outside of KC proper Eminem who is a rapper super star…so give Wes some credit…he was the real deal.
Good one Lance. 🙂
If this guy is an alleged ‘real music Rock Star’ how come I have never heard of him before you guys wrote about him?
I don’t know, Dude, but check out the following from Wikipedia:
“Puddle of Mudd (often stylized as PUDDLE OF MUᗡᗡ) is an American rock band from Kansas City, Missouri. To date the band has sold over seven million albums, and have had a string of No. 1 mainstream rock singles in the United States.”
And note that the band is credited with being from Kansas City, Missouri. Not Topeka. Not Leavenworth. KCMO, baby.
The answer is, what do you call 100 well armed lesbians?
Rock star?! Seriously? That statement does a disservice to real rock stars everywhere. I realize the Scribe has his head so far up Johnny Dare’s rear end that he can’t recognize the real thing, but guys like Scantlin and Jesse James Dupree are “stars” only the WT realm of The Rock radio station. Shit, Shooting Star was bigger and better Puddle of Mudd.
The Shooting Star guys used to rehearse right behind our house when I was in jr high school. Great band back then.
Puddle of Mud is the biggest hit band ever from KC. Period one album sold over 5 million copies…end of story. Shooting Star worked for me at OUTLAWS in the early 80’s …. nowhere close to the success of Puddle of Mud and Wes. I have no dog in the hunt but Puddle of Mud is KC’s only true rock star band in music history, there are no others listed from here…not KANSAS, not ANYONE…
And yet Shooting Star’s music STILL gets played regularly on the radio while Scantlin’s main claim to any lasting fame is a freaking haunted house gig. That even trumps Old Shawnee Days in the How Far Have They Fallen? category. Nobody gives a shit about how many records they sold during the musical abyss that was the 90s. Heck, I’m sure Ugly Kid Joe sold a bunch too, doesn’t make them good or “big”. Sorry, but you can pimp them all you want, Mudd needs to be filed right next to Candlebox and Jackyl as bands that blew even during their short-lived heydays.
Glad you were able to get all that off your chest, PB.
Hey, somebody in here has to have some rock & roll standards.
