NOTE: Not the real Misfits.

All this "not the real ...." because every original member isnt with the band shit is stupid. If you applied that logic to every band you listened to, probably half wouldnt be "real".

And didn't completely suck? I am interested in the answer to this question, too.

Guess what? The "reunited" Dead Kennedys isn't the "real" DK either.

But this is like having a Nine Inch Nails without Trent Reznor, Smashing Pumpkins without Billy, Coregen, or Dagnasty without Brian Baker.

Whos even in the Misfits now? Who cares, its a show, its not like theyre writing a new record, you can either go and have fun or gripe on the internet about whos in or whos not in the band.

I will say that I was off in this case. Its definetely not the same Misfits without Danzig but it will be fun nevertheless im sure. For some reason I was under the impression that it was just Jerry Only out of the band at this point. I dont really keep up with the Misfits anymore.

Currently assigning all tickets to mgiralico.

It will be fun. I saw them once. It would just be better if:

A. They called it something like "Jerry Only's all star Punk review"

and

B. They got someone else to sing. Jerry's voice is pretty bad.

It's
Jerry Only - Bass/Vocals
Dez Cadena (Black Flag) - Guitar
Robo - Drums

In my opinion Jerry Only's vocals on the "Project 1950" album are decent (just like the album) but live they are terrible.

For a while (at least on the 25th Anniversary Tour and on "Project 1950") Marky Ramone played drums.

I'll be going...It'll be just like going to a local show and hearing someone play a Misfits cover. Look at it that way, its not The Misfits. It's a Misfits cover band.

A local show that costs like 20 something dollars.

So it's not everyday that a punk band that has actual Black Flag members plays around here. This apparently doesn't mean much to most, (There was about 8 people at the Cherokee when the Greg Ginn Band played there in the mid 90's) but it does carry some weight with me. I'd be more willing to pay $20 for that as opposed to just a bunch of friends playing Misfits songs. That being said, I don't know that I'm going. Expo 5 SUCKS.

I'd love to see Robo play. Let Dez sing, do Black Flag songs, and I'm there--name your price. The only way Jerry Only gets twenty bucks off of me is if he's changing the oil in my truck.

When I saw them, they did some Black Flag songs. But that was probably 6 years ago, who knows if they still do.

I just don't get the whole rock star aspect of it. "Hey, this guy was in this other band 20 years ago!"

I'd rather see my friends covering those songs than seeing that one guy who was in that one band covering that other bands' songs.

I mean ... would you pay to see Bobby Byrd cover Little Richard?

It's not a rock star thing. Those guys are not rock stars. If they were, they wouldn't be slumming with Jerry Only. I dig their music. I think of it as a chance to see a couple masters of the form at work.

I thought Bobby Byrd was that guy that said "get on up" on sex machine and other James Brown songs. Is this a different Bobby byrd...or does he have some history with Little Richard that I dont know of?

No, that's the B. Byrd I was referring to.
