    Damn straight!

    Yo what’s up with the picture of Mark at the bottom there? He’s barely recognizable. That old picture of Layne from Halloween comes to mind. Lanegan back on H or what??? Say it ain’t so Mark!

      Looks like himself to me. As hard as it may be to believe, the guy’s almost 50.

      • Drexl

        And I’m pretty sure he’s been clean for a while now. Dude’s a true inspiration for anyone struggling with substance abuse or personal demons in general.

        • GsusH

          Or just regular musicians for that matter!

          • Drexl

            Those too. Can’t wait for the next record.

    I wonder if lanegan owns a Ray Rice jersey…It\’s ok to beat your girlfriend, drag her out of a elevator, but it\’s a huge no no to say something bad IN A PRIVATE CONVERSATION

    • Drexl

      I get what you’re saying about the private conversation thing, but this loser was saying all kinds of bigoted garbage long before this conversation, so I don’t feel sorry for him at all. Fuck him.

      As for the Ray Rice thing–getting way ahead of yourself there aren’t you? When did he or anyone say what Rice did was OK?

  • nick

    he didn\’t, but it\’s gets pushed back to the last page of the news and swept under the bus. Rice will serve zero jail time. Just shows how backwards society is, did Sterling say things that were inappropriate? sure. should he be banned for life from a game or sports for that matter; that let\’s criminals off the hook? no. we make a huge deal about something small while people (females) are being beaten. Maybe if lanegan spoke about bigger issues i\’d be impressed.

    ….Yet Jay-Z wearing a medallion a few weeks ago front row at a Nets game that basically means “Whites are the devil” is ok ?!?!
