Jake's career and cars

Postby Kathy » Fri Sep 21, 2012 10:14 pm

Does anyone think Jake may regret some of his career choices? Like not returning to Ozzy when he was (rumored) asked. Wonder if he still likes to work on cars. Or if he has put that aside. I'd like to see some photos of his vehicle collection. Anyone seen it?

The first one is really hard to answer. I dont know if he regrets not getting back with Ozzy but given the shit storm that surrounds that family Jake was well out of it. It might have given him a good pay day but money never really seemed to be a motivation for Jake. He would also have had to take orders from Ozzy on the music and I dont think he would have liked that either, Badlands gave him so much freedom it would be hard to go back to Ozzy. Not to mention having to play 'I dont know' another 400 times.

Some photos of Jake's cars are on the photo album gallery, not too many but his muscle cars were a big part of his life once. I think some of the photos might have been taken around the 'Retraced' time but cant say for sure.

I actually think the rumor that jake was asked to join ozzy again is BS......ozzy has stated many times he hasn't spoken to jake at all since he was fired form the band so the likely hood of them wanting him back would be zero imo

I saw one where the hood was up and he looked like he was working on it. I'll go back and look. Poor me, having to look and Jake's pics. :wink:
