    I'm gonna piggy-back on my girl Deee's Porn Stars thread because I was about to post a video goofing on the bassist from 80's glam band RATT. She suggested that I make it a Then and Now thread similar to (and probably as sad as) her porn one.

    First up is Juan Croucier. Played to thousands of fans a night in the 80's, was all over MTV, and sold millions of records. So what was he up to this week? After a successful reunion with his old band a few years ago which ended in the usual bitter disputes over money, trademark rights, and probably drugs, he's now touring the Midwest with the old drummer from Black N' Blue and 2 guitarists thrilling audiences of 20-30 people with all the old hits and stage moves from his heyday.

    Last night at the Token Lounge in Westland, MI.
    The video is cued up to the best part.

    Negged and reported.

    FP these days is just lead singer Taime Downe and he doesn't look so healthy.

    Drunken bassist falls back and bangs his head on the bass drum. Stick with it for a minute and a half. It's worth it.

    Can't do anything about aging, but you CAN at least make an attempt at controlling the weight!

    All these "rock stars" act so fucking entitled. Just because you were big for a few years or had 1 hit song doesnt entitle you to have a career in music. Just move the fuck on already. No skills to do anything else ? Boo Hoo too fucking bad.

    Supposedly Bun E is back in the band but he won't tour or record.
    Who knows what the hell that means.

    That's Rick Nielson's son Daxx that plays on tour. He's good!
