In the mid-'80s he founded the legendary hardcore/crossover act, The Cro-Mags, directly after which the band releasing their seminal Age Of Quarrel LP.

We're really looking forward to hearing this when it's completed."

Didn't this EXACT post get posted 2 years ago (pre stabbing) ? The last time he beefed with everyone he waited like 10 years to come out of hiding. I guess he wasn't as patient this time. I will say one thing dude has balls bigger than King Kong for doing what he did when and where he did it
