In a new interview with TotalRock Radio, Chris Holmes shared more details on his time in W.A.S.P.
When asked about it, Chris said:
“Blackie, while I was in the band, made some really bad decisions — really bad decisions — that killed the band.
“I’ve known him since I was 18, 17 — when he supposedly got done playing with the [NEW YORK] DOLLS or whatever; I knew him them. And not in my farthest dream could I think in the first album that that would have happened with him. It got so unbearably about him than anything else. It was radical.
“The band was four people when it started; that’s what made us. And then with Tony [Richards, drummer] gone; [Blackie] has to be on the cover [of W.A.S.P.‘s second album, 1985’s ‘The Last Command’]. His idol was Muhammad Ali. And that’s only one person; it’s not a team. That’s what he wants. On the road, he’s made some bad decisions. And I even would tell him about it, and he wouldn’t listen to me.
