... and, perhaps that's the reason he's stayed out of the limelight!

Yes Doobie, I've had the Giblets video for 20 years. But you don't need to watch that video to know that about Jake.

And I do agree with your point. You are right about that.

As is Metal Head with his point!

But I think you and most people here are missing my points as well. Jake 'staying out of the limelight' is no big calculated scheme on his part. For the last decade it's been self abuse on top of complete lack of drive. So I couldn't help but scoff at the quotes in the video that tried to make it like Jake was this terrible casualty of the industry.

Once again, honor thy gifts I say. In whatever why best serves your expression, but honor thy gifts or suffer greatly.

Since my useless memory serves me very well from "Dag the Giblets", it is Greg who says "Jake doesn't really play for anyone but himself. The fact that other people like it is just a plus"

Honestly why can't we all just enjoy that Jake has made an appearance in a video and did a solo for the song (and I said did because anyone who really knows his playing and technique will know it's him)

Face it, he's gonna do whatever he wants to do. Just be happy he's playing music, instead of criticizing who he's playing with, or what some text in a video says or that he hasn't done much since Badlands. It is what it is people and bitching and complaining isn't going to endear him to the public.

Hmm - this is an event and just people discuss about it.
Every adult knows that it's impossible to satisfy everyone - it's an obvious question, why should the distance to the expectations of fans - and Jake does just that.

Fair enough Lou. Solid points all around.

And you're right on about Greg's quote from the video.

Well, I now see that Beggars & Thieves are now getting sued for this video. I could only guess that maybe Gene Simmons has something to do with this. Anyways, they are asking all their Facebook fans to repost this video in order to defend free speech. Although, Beggars & Thieves getting sued for this, will only bring more attention to them. Maybe that was the plan.

Makes me happy. Also makes me happy to see Jake's name mentioned 80 TIMES in the comments to the video. Long live Jake. Humble or triumphant does not matter. Your fans await your return.

I went back and listened intently. Although I'm not familiar with the other band member's guitarwork, it sounds like Jake's style of note progression and finger vibrato.

So happy to see Jake. That solo was very nice as well. He hasn't lost a thing.

Great to see Jake in the B&T vid, hopefully this will be the kickstart of something more from Jake, the guy is wasted doing nothing he needs to join/form a band and get back out there

I saw (Jake E.Lee fanatic)'s facebook and someone claimed
that solo wasn't Jake's, so I asked how he was so sure,
(I used a false name) he told me that he found Jake's comment
on youtube (Looks like Me but its not..........I play much "faster and cleaner")

scroll down the page,

Do you think this is Jake for real? I cannot believe Jake appears such a place,
but if it's just a spoofing, what did the man want to do by doing so?

In the past responses of this thread, Aga-ta was so sure this solo
was not Jake's, but she didn't seem to have certain proof, so I thought
(did she hear it from him directly when she slept with him?)
she seemed to live in Russia? though..

I know Ron Mancuzo has his facebook account, why don't you ask him,
I don't want to because I cannot speak English..
