I'd love to see you go on stage and do what he does and try and stay grounded..
What has staying grounded got to do with anything?
But anyways.. I don't think he is "acting" like a rock star... thats kind of a blind statement. That's like saying Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy and Steven were "acting" like rock stars before they made it big and were playing cover songs in bars.. that was just them and how they acted.. and they were doing a lot worse shit then DJ ever did.. so why is DJ any different? I don't think he is pretending to be some huge rock & roll star to impress anybody, I think he's just being himself.
I know a lot of people that get drunk and do stupid shit... and they're not trying to be rock stars..
I never once said he was 'acting' like anything. I said he was a wannabe rock star. Playing other peoples work night after night in my book doesnt make you a rock star. It just makes you look like a stand in. Jplpool got it right when he said all he is currently doing is a Gilby. I don't consider Gilby a rock star based upon his time in GNR. Once DJ writes for the band (and not just re-records others work) and then performers his work for us I will only then reconsider my stance.
And that bartender bragging thing was truely pathetic.
