I had the opportunity to meet Aaron at the Solo Chatannooga show. Aaron was exactly who I thought he would be, at least for the breif moment I got to speak with him. Aaron signed my back and I had it tatt, on my back. I'll upload the picture here soon.

First of all let me say hello to you all... Hello!
I'm a new member, so I apologise for being late. Would you believe that I never even thought that there would be a Staind.com? I know what you're thinking... "What a muppet!"... and you're right, I am. I apologise for that too, but I will never apologise for what I am about to say. Staind are the best thing to happen to a lot of us in a very long time!
Let's face it, we would all be miserable without their brilliant songs. A lot… Continue
Click here to be taken to their site then click on the pic of Aaron and Jon to be taken to the youtube video. They describe their hometown for those unfamiliar, the Simpsons, who they consider friends and comment on rumors and those that try to take advantage, and finally Aaron talks about his favorite sounding Les Paul. Also, I'll upload my captures of Staind on Scuzz within the next couple hours. Enjoy everyone.

Keeping the idle talk to minimum here, but I'm sure a lot of you saw the horrible treatment Aaron received in Vienna before singing Intro, let me just say nobody deserves that kind of disrespect, famous, successful or not. It's experiences like that, that will leave him with a bitter taste in his mouth about touring at all and it just plain sucks for fans that truly want to be there and have their hearts it it. Everybody, fan or not, should appreciate what Aaron and Staind are doing, they by no… Continue

Hey guys, got another article to share, not just from another news feed or anything but another from this current European/UK tour. I'm not too big a fan of the forum so I thought I'd post here, but I use my Myspace more than anything else. I try to update as often as I can, but with work and other circumstances I unfortunately can't update it as much as I'd like to. Here's the article and afterward I'll post my Myspace link and if you're interested in friendship you're more than welcome.… Continue
