Thin Disguise

newwarrant.jpgWell, here we are.

Months and months of speculation, news tips right into Bring Back Glam!, gossip on Metal Sludge and more...The William Morris Agency is representing Warrant and has just issued this new photo.

I'm still skeptical. I don't think this is a permanent arrangement in any way. After all, half the band is denying the rumor and Jani Lane is excitedly fueling the fires. My guess is this: the reunited Warrant will play Rocklahoma and will also perform on the 2009 Motley Cruise. In fact, their name was mentioned as a band already asked to play on the party ship. If you're wondering, other bands mentioned by organizers are Queensryche and Tesla. I'm not really sure I can imagine Geoff Tate partying on the Lido Deck, but I guess you never know.

Will Warrant hit the road with Poison this summer? Probably. 

If you visit Warrant on Myspace, Jamie St. James is still listed as the band's lead singer - BUT, the band's official website has completely changed. There's just a front door of the Dirty Rotten Stinking Filthy Rich business ogre.

Get ready to hear "Cherry Pie" a lot this summer.

"Get ready to hear "Cherry Pie" a lot this summer."

That sounds like a threat to me.

I noticed a couple of weeks ago that Warrant changed the graphic on their myspace site, but no official word can be found anywhere.....yet.
Eddie Trunk had Bret Michaels in the studio last week or so. Bret stated that he would like to play Rocklahoma this year with his solo band, if his schedule permits. Moreover, just updated his touring schedule and he has some solo dates in June 2008, so I don't think that Poison will be touring this summer.

As far as Warant is concerned, I am skeptical. As I've posted before, I've been to a bunch of shows where he left the stage after a few songs or didn't even make it to the stage. He tried to sing one song at Rocklahoma 2007 and blew it!

Queensryche would never agree to that. They've resisted -- and rightfully so -- being lumped in with '80s hair / glam bands. While they may have had certain elements of that sound, their music was always more progressive and conceptual in nature than any of the L.A. bands. You'd be a lot more likely to see them on tour with Dream Theater (as has happened before), Rush, King's X, etc, bands like that. Tate would never in a million years agree to the Motley Cruise.

Don't forget Queensryche played Rocklahoma last summer - after Jackyl and before Twisted Sister. Yes, they were a late add but Tate and company still agreed to the show. At least the Motley Cruise is a charity event.

I think Queensryche must appreciate that there's considerable overlap of fans and, nowadays, they can't afford to be so picky.

Im stoked over the Warrant reuniting news. Jani needs them and they need him worse. Im praying they are on the Poison tour.
Even though I think Jaimie St. Jmaes did an awesome job in Warrant (I liked the last Warrant CD)..It is good to hear Jani is back in Warrant..Jani looks better too..Also I am glad to see Jaimie back with Black N' Blue..Because I was always a fan of them too.Thanks for the great article Allyson =)
