ex-Testament bassist Greg Christian: "It sucks to be poor and famous"Thursday, May 1, 2014 7:56 AM PT
After a few media outlets (e.g. Blabbermouth) picked up Christian's comments, he returned to Facebook to clarify his sentiments:
"The bottom line is after all the history and touring — once the band got to a point of turning a serious profit — it was made perfectly clear to me that I was never going to share in any of it and never get anything beyond a day rate, that never went up once in 8 1/2 years, while I watched everything else get bigger and grander every step of the way. And if anyone wants to rip on me for feeling dehumanized by that, I don't care — they're entitled to their opinion. But so am I. And my opinion is — it sucks to be poor and famous."
A lot of people are going to assail Christian for whining, but he does have a point. However, he's not famous. So sadly, he's poor and almost famous.

WHAT ON EARTH DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH TIM LAMBESIS' ARREST
sorry bud but you're not even remotely famous
He is the ORIGINAL bass player from 1983, not 1993, you dumbass webby. Don't even think you're getting street cred for reporting this from a 3rd rate news site like blabbermouth. Go back to reporting on Emmure T-shirts and As I Lay Dying's new crap band.
poor web by, gettin' it from all angles. EAT DA POO!!!!
wait! you mean to tell us there's no money in music? we're shocked; -absolutely nobody
"testicles" you have to have em, if you're going to be in a band with chief chuck billy... i refer to testament as testicles... some people have them,some people don't...
