Heavy Metal Blog:
Blackie Lawless is W.A.S.P
June 24, 2009
Today's blog is about the Heavy metal band W.A.S.P, they are one of the original bands that started the whole "Shock Rock" imagine and with their themed stage shows and how they performed. Their lyrics really got the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) back in the mid 80's all in a frenzy!
Looking back on the band now compared to what's out there today makes
W.A.S.P seem pretty tame. Blackie is the only original member left and I guess
he is the voice of the band so things can still move forward for him and they can still play the old shit we used to rock to in the 80's.
The band has scheduled to do some European dates this summer at some festivals.
And what does W.A.S.P really stand for anyway?? Maybe someday Blackie will let us really know, or not. Anyway, I don't think we'll see the band in North America anytime soon!
