Does it ever bother anyone that Jake E. Lee does not make press statements? That he does not interact with his or anything? I love his music but I was wondering if he has a drug promblem? Or if he just does not care about his fans?

I think he's over it, man. Personal problems are personal, first and foremost, and I wonder if you'd imagine having fans and not caring about them . . . Sorry. Welcome to the board, Paul.
Everyone will love you, just as long as you are a shooting star.

No, he does not have a drug problem. Jake's a very private guy and obviously wants to keep a low profile. I would also like to know more about what he's up to, but I respect his desire to stay under the radar. Welcome to the board!

No it does not bother me that Jake does not make "many" press comments because deep down he does make some kind of connection with his fans in his own way. Which is totally somewhat quiet, mellow & strongly hip & deeply sincere when he does address us/and the listerning public & media at large: in which he has made contact (when it's open to him!) and it's not the quanity of times he addresses someone it's "quality" by far in what is said/I treausre the message "thanks" note in his newest album Jake E. Lee - Retraced/very cordial & powerful words there! Peace and much respects! 8)

Shadow - I could not have said it better myself!

Sure, sometime I wish there was more music/press/pictures from or about Jake, but personally, I'd rather him be like this than over exposed! (a la Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Brad Pitt) More mysterious = more sexy!!!!
I'm not suffering from my addiction to Jake E. Lee - I'm enjoying every minute of it!

Perhaps. But, there's also "outta sight, outta mind". I'm still trying to remember the last time when somebody had current news on him. How many of us would have known about 'Retraced' if we didn't frequently surf here? Musically speaking, he's a tad too anti-social for my taste. I don't care to hear of his personal life - just the music related issues. I think he needs a good PR person at times. And, YES, I'm volunteering!!

Indeed, she has. Guys at work looked the pics up on the net - man, she's a skank these days. :roll: It's pretty bad when they even agreed that "stuff" looked skanky.

Oh, man. Sheez. I remember walking into one of my favorite dives back in Destin one night and Britney was sitting there with her mom. Her mom was much better looking than she was!

Not really, because the guy is just who he is. I believe that he accepts the fact that his hayday is over and just dabbles in music from time to time.

Retraced was good and just teased us a little but we also have to remember that Jake is lik 50 and he isnt no spring chicken anymore. What frustrates me more than anything is how when people talk about Ozzy all you hear about is Randy Rhodes this and Zakk Wylde that and jake is never mentioned when Jake IMO was the best Axeman Ozzy ever had. Maybe someday ( hopefully soon ) he will put out an album of originals and give all of his fans something to hang our hats on but i wouldnt hold my breath. Im just glad that all of the other bands and musicians from that era dont feel the same way Jake does and they continue to tour and put out music because i dont give a damn what anybody says when it comes to music im not into changing with the times and evolving or whatever because new music just plain sucks.

I have the feeling the guy is livin' his life and it's just outa synch with the big "machine" the rest of the music world thinks is reality. Here's something funny though - I did a search for Jake E. Lee / Las Vegas and found this interview with a Vegas punk band and the guy was like "Yeah Jake E. Lee was over here last night jammin' with us" so that shows Jake is social and normal like everyone , he's just got his own thing. And in this fame obsessed culture that's pretty admirable.

Hear, here!!!
I've been anxiously awaiting another solo project from Jake E.Lee since A Fine Pink Mist, too! Don't ever change, Driver. You're not alone. Uhh. I'm not saying that you're precious or anything like that, just, you know . . . LOL
Everyone will love you, just as long as you are a shooting star.
