What happened to Metal Sludge?!


London

Recommended Posts

It was a really cool site a few years ago. But man has it gone down hill since then. The 20 questions were pretty informative/funny. They are gone. They get all their news from other sites now. The message board was decent but no where near this one. I'm close to removing it from my favorites list.

I never did like Metal Sludge. To me it was a waste what they did with their resources. They could have been the best Hair Metal site hands down and they turned it into a tabloid. Tabloid crap annoys me and finding that they did it to Hair Metal didn't sit to well with me. Also, I didn't think Sludge even existed any more. The past couple days I've tried to go to the site it's said it was hacked.

IMO the site really started going downhill when Stevie revealed himself as the man behind the Sludge. The questions used to be pretty off the wall, bold and no-nonsense. Now it's all "how's your family, how's your dog, when was the last time you ate at Burger King" boring crap. I'm thinking the problem is Stevie doesn't have as much time to devote to the site as he used to and maybe a change in personnel at the Sludge site that aren't as funny/creative as previous personnel. I heven't checked the site out in probably a couple months.

Man, I used to look at this site every day... printed out the interviews and read them on the train. That was way back at my old, old job. Must be about 5 years now since I saw the site... haven't been back once since I left that job... which if I recall was pretty much when it was revealed it was Stevie Rachelle behind it. Or was that a few years after I'd already stopped...

Yeah when it was announced that Stevie was behind it all it went to shit pretty fast.

They reported that Phil Lewis died in his sleep about a week ago, Phil replied with an angsty buletin on myspace saying anyone that wears a Sludge t-shirt to a gig will be thrown out.....bit harsh but he was pissed cause apparently the article took joy in the fact that he was apparently dead (what happened anyway? as far as im aware Phil is an awesome guy!)

 

i replied to the bulletin asking if he was talking about Rachelle, and he was kind enough to reply back to me about the situation...

i think my message said something like "i think its really cool that you run your own myspace, its a rare thing these days"

 

and he replied with something along the linse of "hey izzy, i appreciate the time you took to write, despite what smoe people think im just a normal guy tryna have fun and make people happy"

 

its the usual "thanks for coming to the gig" sorta thing, but i just think its cool that LA Guns are so accessible, i mean Phil didnt mind at all when i spent like 15 minutes talking to him at the meet and greet, he's seriously one of the more awesome rockstars out there in my books :tumbsup:

    • Lol, jeez some folk come up with interesting reasons to not like good music. Thankfully for me, either a song is good or it's not and the process in pretty simple. 
    • Cool album cover, bad song. Production sounds, okay, though, which is a change in recent times. But as long as the songs are this bad how can one possibly drum up any interest for this band anymore?
    • I didn't really know how to vote, so in every case I just went with the voice I preferred... Nothing else matters. For example, I prefer Jani Lane in every conceivable way to Robert Mason... Except I think that purely on a vocal level Mason has the better voice, which is why I voted that way. A few instances like that where I much prefer the other guy's musical output, but voted for the better voice, in my opinion. 
    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.
