    Back in 87 bon jovi and def leppard were selling 500,000 a month

      He certainly deserves it–one of the the best guitarists of all time.

    You got a lot of industry people proppin’ up what’s left of the music industry with funny P.R.. Back in ’83 Quiet Riot did that in Chicago on cassette alone. Gimmie ’83 again.

    Got to play live now to pay the bills. I bet Ace Frehleys new album hits bigger numbers.
