Jake's mom, Mrs.Shizu wrote in her book (Heavy Metal fans
are always capricious, so I think Jake should show his face
in public and talk to them more often. I am anxious about it)

She was so delighted that Jake came to Japan and played,
when I heard her death, I thought she must die
worrying about him.

I don't want to be disliked by him, so I hate to say this, but
I've always thought Jake is cold and stingy.
All he has to do is to appear and play some (and go to bed with me 8) ).

He took time and trouble to source the material and put together some of the best and rarest footage and sounds the fans could want. The DVDs in particular gives you the chance to go and visit shows you never had a chance to see and its really like going back in time to celebrate Badlands when they were together. As a historical legacy its unbeatable. Jeff also put up his own money to keep the site together when nobody else did. As far as Jake not giving Jeff at least one phone interview I am angry at Jake for not doing that. I dont give a toss if Jake is secretive or quiet, just give Jeff some respect and show appreciation. After April this site will be down as nobody else is going to do it. Does this bother Jake...I seriously doubt it.

Sunrise Im with you!! If Jake didnt want the attention, why did he jump on the stage with Ozzy....and then Badlands!! There are alot of tallented people that just enjoy playing the guitar..by themselves or a small garage band..
But what really pisses me off is the fact these rock stars, actors ect.. Want to show off what they can do...they bring their music to our ears we love it admire their tallent and then, POOF :roll: What they dont understand is when you admire someone they sorta become a part of your life..I dont mean "stalker type". And when his fans care enough to build and come to a site created for him..and all we ask, that he gives Jeff a heads-up when he does something like TMS or this pending album...he devoted fans should have to troll utube, facebook for info like that!! His mother said Jake doesnt like attention...well he got it when joined Ozzy!! If he didnt want it why did he join a band like that!! Im sorry if I have made anyone mad...can anybody explain it to me? Please dont get me wrong Im very grateful for the exposure to his extream tallent but WTF(sorry) Id better shut up. :oops:

The way I see it is jake writes music and loves playing on stage in front of people (well use to might be a better term) ....he got treated pretty poorly by ozzy and all the randy fans, formed badlands and butted heads with ray from pretty early on judging by some of the things said on dag the giblets, tried to put together a couple of things after badlands and then said to hell with it i'm done...got offered a deal to do retraced so did it to work with the rhythm section (because he loved their playing) and now his the bug a little

just because he is a bit "famous" doesn't mean he needs to be there for us and doesn't give us the right to know his every move. I personally don't care if he tours ever again or not but I would love for him to just make new music for me to hear...even if its just sonds on soundcloud or something


The one thing that does annoy me is the lack of kudos he (or anyone close to him) have given jefnel. I'm sure jake probably isn't big on computers (I now plenty of 50+ guys who never go near the things) but some small contact and thanks has been in order

I'm with you Kathy. Maybe when he lost his parents it cut him deep. I cant imagine life without my folks but he also lost his sister and I dont know how much family support network he has to advise him or care about him. Loosing his parents seems to be when he went down hill. We still love him and always will but with this website closing in the next 5 months it will be youtube we go to and other sites to pick up pieces of information if and when we can. This site could have been the center for communicating with his true loyal supporters what has and will be happening. I'm just taking about speaking to Jeff on the phone for 10 minutes or sending him an email with info he can release, its easy done and I dont doubt he has access to a computer....you have a computer in your hands when you use a modern mobile phone. But again we covering a subject that has come up again and again, that he is basically invisible outside a close circle of people and it doesn't include us.

Kathy, you will know no matter how hard you pursuade him,
it won't work.

A hit in the face or two will be quite effective. 8)

How many times have I imagined I knocked him down and
did anything I want.

that's what makes me wonder, he did have contact with the former
webmaster Chris, although sporadically, but since Jeff took over...none.

That is a good question- Jeff took over 2005? And I understand about loosing his parents...Ive lost both of mine too...and being a only child...I cant image how much a tragic loss of a sister...

But still he should make contact with Jeff...I personally dont care if he doesnt want to join in with us...but Jeff has put in alot of time and effort to make this a great site...my God you can go to a public libary and use a computer Im sure he has a phone (or was the one on TMS a fake)...its all been said before ...he doesnt care...about this site at all...and possible his fans either...But I still admire the man as a musican..he was and is still a big influence on my guitar playing...and his is a handsome devil but Im not trying to get into his pants 8O ....actually I have more respect for him than anything....but disappointed in his detachment from his loyal fan base here :cry: Atleast we have a new album to look forward to. So rock on Jake give us what you can!! 8)

You guys know that Jake does give a Thanks to all at JakeELee.com inside of the Retraced CD. I know it has been metioned here on the forums somewhere, but its probably been awhile. That came out in 2005 I think. I just wanted to point that out. I am sure, that if things go the way that everybody would like them to go, including an official website, he would put a link to this site as most do. Alot of people I know, dont give two shits about being on a computer. Hell, alot of these people that do have official websites have others moderating for them. They never touch it.
There are a few exceptions. Bill Leverty from Firehouse which I met at the casino here in Michigan practically invited me to sit down with his family at breakfast. Still talk to him, on and off on Facebook. Oh yeah, and by the way this guys skills goes way beyond what he does in FH. In any case, we will see how it goes soon enough, I guess. First, I am just ready to hear some new Jake. Second, hopefully it just blows up. Maybe he is ready.

Stranger things have happened. Plus they have computers at the studios too!! I was just using the library as a example. Didnt mean to get your fur up. By the way, I have really enjoyed learning some pre Japan WWII history. I was actually at the library the other day looking for a book on Japan WWII history written by someone from Japan that lived through it. Any Ideas?

Kathy nailed it when she used the word 'detached'...thats exactly what it is. He is distant from his fans and I dont really know what kind of success he expects from releasing anything when nobody knows where he is or what the hell he's doing. Any info on Jake will come fro the company he's signed to to release this music everyone is talking about. I cant see any official website and there wont be any link to this one after April as it wont exist. I find myself getting steadily irritated by the man and I dont like it as I have never felt this way towards him before.

Sorry, I wasn't good at history,
there were wars and many difficult stories, which I don't want to know.
Maybe they had to die for the nation and Emperor..

Instead, I recommend the old novel Genji monogatari(tale of Genji),
written more than 1000 yrs ago.
it's a fiction, but portrays how life was back then.
It's a story about a noble man who raped his father's second wife.
He did it in secret, but later years his young mistress
was stolen by young man, then he thought it's Karma..

What did I miss, here. Did everyone take a pill or something, because everyone seems to be trippin. The man does not owe anybody, anything. You will get it, when the cd comes out. Or whatever format it is in. If he does only even one show and it happens to be in Vegas, cool. Maybe, I will see some of you there, because I would try to make an effort in getting there for it. Never been to Vegas, so thats a good enough reason.

Have you noticed the article that was featured in Burrn about two years
ago..winter issue of 2010, done by the interviewer Charrie Foglio,
sorry if the spelling is not correct..I think I haven't seen anyone
talking about it, so I guess you haven't seen that interview.
It was written of course in Japanese.
Or maybe you are talking somewhere eles..

Jake did meet Charrie and hugged each other, seemed like Jake didn't
speak himself but instead his girlfriend were there, maybe Gigi,
she told something to interviewer..

I read it recently, because I missed the chance to buy the mag,
I asked someone on the internet to write about the article,
she wrote 1/3 of it for me, but I hadn't read the rest because I didn't buy it.
Recently I got it as used book, read the rest of it, I ...I..
