Default any static-x fans here?

i know people have just ripped on static-x when i've brought them up here through the years, and don't know if there are any actual fans here.

as silly as some of the music is, the band (their first 2 albums) genuinely meant a lot to me at a certain point in my life, and still hold a special place in my heart. honestly.

i think their last few albums really sucked, and it was super sad to see how it all ended, with wayne letting his wife get too involved and drive a wedge between him and the band, and then wayne and tony in a bitter disagreement, speaking negatively about eachother after 15 years together. and then when wayne died unexpectedly, and then his wife shortly thereafter... it was all so dark and i kind of tried to just let go and tried to forget about it.

if there are any real fans here, would really like to discuss this with you, i just saw it and it threw me for a loop:

i'm suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper conflicted about it. i don't really trust tony, despite his 'statement' in the comments on the video trying to clear things up. i don't really trust him, and it feels kind of disingenuous and like a money grab.

and yet, had things somehow gone differently, had wayne not died, and had wayne and tony actually reconciled, of course i'd be 100% on board and all forgiven, etc.

i get that wayne was in a bad frame of mind in his last years, and that will definitely influence the things he said, his perceptions, etc. but all the same, it was his band, and for tony to basically make wayne pay a lot of money to use it seemed really low.

and for all of that... i am admittedly quite excited to hear one final otsego song.

anyhow, please holler if you care, don't really have anyone to discuss this with. thanks
