So who's worse in your eyes....Janick Gers or Faukner?
Well, Gers obviously. When he was actually plugged in for the live shows (before Smith returned) he butchered the harmonies and mangled the solos with his sloppy technique. Today he is simply an unnecessary clown and a waste of jet fuel. He's as critical to their live performance as a juggler or bearded lady. Take him away and Iron Maiden simply revert to their classic line-up. Now who honestly wouldn't want that?

The Faulkner situation is different. Despite wearing sunglasses on stage and the stupid posing and the stupid 'you and me are bros' gestures to the crowd, he's a decent guitarist who now has to play both the trickier KK (*cough*) and Tipton parts because Sneap can't play lead for shit. Take Faulkner away and all you're left with is two pensioners, a barista and a guy who non-fans could easily assume was the same drummer jailed for child-sex offences.

I proclaimed:
Oh no, here it comes again
Can't remember when Chris failed to make this type of post before
Hold on, Tony's silence will never last
Insults in the past, they always seem to come again
Again and again, again and again, again

Cry out, to legions of the brave
Time again to save us from the alphas of the board
Ride out, keyboard warriors of the realm
Prince of Persia Pants is at the helm, sail across the sea of slights

Usual suspects and things, Itunes and kings
Dodgy punctuation and a failure to spell
Trucking overnight, unholy and not so bright
Called by the ding-a-ling of the bell

Bloodless fury fast ascending
Swinging wildly in a never-ending fight
Phantom menace free forever
Dick with ears, shining ever-bright

Peon Nights
Peon Nights
All right
