Never say The Edge 100.3
doesn't have a hugely dedicated fanbase. In fact, the most dedicated have let loose some seriously misguided anger after I called the music they like "misguided" and "angry" in this
Apart from morning jocks Corey and Jay
using their wet noodle wit on my name the next day, hours after this week's issue hit the stands, my inbox 'sploded with hate mail. Hilarious, hilarious hate mail.
Not to mention Facebook hate
, to boot.
Seriously, I've never seen so many grown men get so on edge (pun totally intended) about bands since, well...this
A few highlights after the jump.
"Im going buy this douche a ticket for edgefest and if he shows up its time to face the music. Pardon the pon"
"I can plainly see from your article why a person such as yourself would be scared of getting beat up behind a port-a-potty, you’re a nerd. Next time let someone else write up the reviews of the cool concerts and you can stick to the lame shit, thanks!"
"Shouldn't someone in your position be helping build the music Little Rock music scene?"
"so you ran out of synonyms on microsoft word.. is your spell check f**ked up too? i swear it sounds like a 5th grader wrote that article... no, I take that back.. a 5th grader could have spelled 'rock.'....PS: If you need me, I'll be beating off behind the port-a-johns."
"Sorry that this isn't some love fest boy band crap that I'm sure that Mr. Tarpley would love to attend instead. It's so easy to criticize, now you will feel the angst and fury of those fans of the misguided music that modern rock has to offer........"
"So tell me Mr. Tarpley. Are you dumb or something? ...No one wrote an article about the type of music you listen to. Frankly I really don't give a damn what you listen to Mr. Tarpley! I think you should contact the Edge and give a public apology for your statements on the stage at edgefest while Rob Zombie pisses on your head."
"You should be fired from your job and deported from the country."
Totally biased reporter......guess he dresses like a telatubby on the weekends"
"well f**k that guy that wrote the article edgefest is awesome you get to meet cool ass people that like to rock out, listen to bad ass bands and just let me say cold BEER ill be there!!!! need i say more except that dude sounds like a duche lol he obviously doesnt know what good music!!!!!"
"I’M WAITING TO READ HIS RETRACTION TO THIS ARTICLE WHEN SOME PISSED OFF EGEHEAD KICKS HIS ASS FOR WRITING THIS ONE"
That guy just needs his face rocked off by the edgefest family cuz when we are together at edgefest we are all brothers and sisters can I get a HELL YA!!!!!!"
"ya i should go rent a port a potty and take it there with some knock off oakleys and give him the beating of his life!!"
"theres plenty of pllaces to hide the body on roosevelt. im just sayin...."
"there's more of us than there are of them...They should be afraid."
