About ten years ago ( what???! OMG!) , I was "private messaging" with a guy that said he was Jake. Back then, I didn't believe him, and I treated him like a jackass when I wasn't asking questions about certain licks, riffs, techniques, etc.,etc.,etc., that I had banged my head against more than one hard wall trying to dig-up, open and straighten-out, which he answered with humbling gratitude. I was a big time, full time drunken a$$hole back then, and I realize now that, in all the time that's passed since then, I haven't ever taken the time to figure out that I actually was in communication with the very Jake E. Lee, himself. I am totally ashamed and have burdened my self to earn the opportunity for apology, for I believe I have contributed to this fine fellow's, whom we all think so much of, decision to abstain from participating in the posts which concern him, or in the least, remaining in-cognito while moving amongst the den of his endearing fans. Lest it be said, I have dried-out, stopped abusing alcohol, stopped smoking, gotten married and put both of my wide, flat feet fully on Mother Glorious. It's as if the "fog of war" had lifted. Would anybody possessing the proper lines of communication give a message to Jake that I would like to PM with him? Truly, a huge load will be lifted off of my chest; however, I am putting forth this effort to remedy any pain and/or pressure my behavior has caused Mr. Jake E. Lee. May I also say that we all seem to be in agreement at Jake E. Lee.com, and would jump at the chance to be able to converse directly with you, Jake. Thankyou.
Tommy, at this point, this issue is probably something you're gonna have to just live with... I'm sorry to say. I don't think any amount of apologizing is gonna influence Jake into posting on this board again. I think he's well over the rockstar thing (but I could be wrong) and since he's such a private guy, and so hard to get a hold of, I'm not sure the few people that have his contact info will be able to do anything to help clear this up... But hopefully, Mr. Lee himself will read your post, send you a P.M. and give you the opportunity to get this load off your chest.

Lets cross our fingers and hope he reads your post. :)


Did Jake used to post? Show me a post if so!

He posted before the board was revamped a couple of years ago. Haven't seen him on here since, unless it's been incognito.

The Elusive Mr. Jake E. Lee is ever present and around: And has posted here beforehand on previous Jake E. Lee messageboards here offering his sincere thanks for the fans that are in support of him & this amazing music Website that is in his honor. When the time is right I'm sure the Elusive Rebel JAKE da Oge will make his presents known once more but until that time well da Oge is watching. Hee, heeee.... 8) :twisted: :wink:

just another .02 on this.. I am also a fan of Steve Vai, and after posting a review of his latest CD, he PMed me, and it meant so much.

Steve also posts from time to time, but more keeps a blog. I hate to sound sarcastic, but Steve is also much busier than Jake, with a ton of projects in the past, present, and future, family and travel.

I wish Jake put out more stuff. However, I really think if I was that level of talent (jake and steve) I would live much more like jake.

There is an old saying "Never judge a man until you walked a mile in his shoes". Jake, whatever your doing as long as your happy is all that matters.
