Drowning Pool Frontman Slams Papa Roach for "Short Dick Syndrome"


Drowning Pool Drowning Pool frontman Ryan McCombs has just posted an attack on Alter Bridge and Papa Roach, both of whom they are on tour with. Drowning Pool is also managed by the same management company, 10th Street, that Papa Roach is managed by.

"The powers that be have been after me for some time to write another blog. Hell at one point it was even suggested that I try to start some controversy with some other acts. You know the old "no such thing as bad press" BS. It was suggested that I take a shot at Kid Rock one time. WHAT??? Heres a dude that marches the same path we do supporting our troops. yeah right I'll get right on that.

Actually I will, but not at Kid Rock. Hell I respect the guy, why would I do that. I need a reason to be a prick. Anyone out there that knows me knows that much. So let me get to it. Let me make everyone happy.

I'm sitting here in Mt. Clemens Michigan at a radio show for WRIF, A bad ass station up here in these parts. On the bill tonight was 4 bands that led us to look forward to this show tonight. Rev Theory, who we've been on the road with for a few shows here the past couple of weeks. Alter Bridge who i have no idea about and Papa Roach who Happens to be 10th street (our management) family of ours. Family my ass.

I have never witnessed such a short dick syndrome in my career. Mind you back in the SOiL days I opened up for Ozzy, Zombie and Mudvayne and I have never been treated like such a piece of shit. Not that any one of those three bands would ever even think of treating another performing artist the way Papa Roach and Alter Bridge treated Rev Theory and ourselves today.

A room full of people/fans completely get dicked out of the show they paid for because Papa Roach decides they need enough room behind the drum kit to park a fucking tour bus between it and the back of the stage. then Alter Bridge doesn't strike their kit. Something completely in the right of the headliner but an inflated-head move for a support band, of any level. So the paying audience gets to see DP and Rev Theory try to navigate within about 1 foot of space between the kit and the front wedge (monitor).

You know I don't get this shit. People in this business are so quick to spew brotherhood and family bullshit. and then the short-dick syndrome kicks in. What's the point of being such shits to other bands in this business. Are you scared you can't bring it when the fucking time comes. Are u so worried that somebody might bring the shit some night and give the crowd what they paid for that you have to hand-cuff them before the show even starts. I hope the people that paid for 4 shows tonight gets fucking checks in the mail to cover their ticket costs from Papa Roach and Alter Bridge. You all deserve it. U deserve what you pay for. I'm sorry along with the rest of the guys and along with Rev Theory that you all got fucked out of the four performances that you paid for.

Just saw Alter Bridge. Looks like we should have switched spots. U could have done your feet nailed to the floor routine in our foot of space easily...

Sorry if I piss off any fans out there, that isn't my point. You hear this brotherhood BS and then you see the tongue waggers for what they are. To PR and AB... leave the handcuffs on the headboard where they belong, allow the fans the show they paid for.
