LA Guy,thanks for the inside stuff--Phil was foolish to say such a thing and now it makes it understandable why the dreaded Z is still on our TV screen. I wish the Ryan/Jason comments had made it to the show,because,I feel like Jason is the best judge so far, and that he is right to criticize Ryan for bashing Dana...who does have a better voice and stage prescence than Ryan,who seems like an angry clerk to me more than a rocker. Dana is beautiful and is very young...she is not gritty or "rock" enough for this band at all,but some band could probably take her and go platinum with those vocals and those looks in a video or two. Ryan just seemed to be piling on...and I am glad that Jason called him on it. Interesting point about Tommy Lee and Phil--Tommy hates doing the hatchet man job--maybe Gilby should do it since he seems to like confrontation more? I do feel that Tommy is sincere lots of times on the show.
