W.A.S.P. Chris Holmes Vs Blackie Lawless (A Top Story)


.
On Tuesday W.A.S.P. Chris Holmes Vs Blackie Lawless was a top story. Here is the recap: (RockAAA) Former W.A.S.P. lead guitarist Chris Holmes claims his one-time band mate and friend, and current W.A.S.P. frontman, Blackie Lawless conned him out of royalties, made his time in the band a misery and even deliberately made the rest of the band look bad in pictures to ensure the band was all about him.

Holmes was a founding member and in two spells spent 12-years in total with the band but he says he would never play with Lawless again and claims he'd rather be dead than make peace.

In an interview with Arena of Pleasure, Holmes admitted he felt both he and the other members of W.A.S.P felt they deserved to be pictured on the record covers of albums they all worked on. He said: "Blackie wants to be Elvis Presley, he wants to be the only guy. Let's put it this way, he has an ego. He does really s***ty things to everybody in the band. The only reason why he kept me that long is to get more ticket sales. You wanna get some really s***ty? The money you make off the records is called publishing, and he made me sign my contract in the way that this goes back into the band, so I never saw any of the publishing." - more on this story
