Reasons For Montano's Hellyeah Ousting Revealed

According to TheMetalDen.com, Hellyeah bassist Jerry Montano was ousted from the band after he punched guitarist Tom Maxwell in the face, was ejected from the club, and said "I am going to go get a gun, come back and shoot everyone!" while intoxicated following their CD release show at The Clubhouse in Dallas, TX.

As previously reported, former Damageplan bassist Bob "Zilla" Kakaha was recently confirmed as Montano's replacement.

You apologize to a dead man and make fun of his brother in the same breath, brilliant! Come back when you can type something with a trace of logic to it.

If you don't like typing Now Playing no one is making you, but it would be cool if you had the backbone to say when you're playing the new Linkin Park.

Still, I'd like to know WHY he punched Tom. Is he just a drunk, or was he provoked somehow? What's the whole story here?

From what I hear the guys in Nothingface are f***ing a$$holes anyway. I know they treated Crossbreed like sh** while on tour with them so I'm sure they've treated many bands like sh**. I don't really care that he left and it was for a good reason. Whether he was drunk or not he should know what the f*** he's doing. No matter how drunk I get I know what the f*** I'm doing at the time...I just may not remember it in the morning!!! LOL

And xxxbodomofmynutsxxx, I believe that RM? really isn't very old.

proper hardcore is probably the most homophobic of all metal genres. I don't see how anything can make you hardcore AND gay. Maybe mallcore and gay. Or emo and gay. And proper metalcore is about sporting tattoos, spikey hair and not wearing a shirt. It's got nothing to do with girls' pants.

You've basically paid yourself out more than you did anyone else. And if you really DO listen to LP, then yes, I am judging your musical taste.

I'm gonna put RM? in his mid-twenties, maybe? Mid-to-late?

Yeah, pretty bad taste there on Montano's part. But of course there are two sides to every story, even if one of them is an intoxicated pile of nonsense. Also, this bodomofmynuts fella is just trying to get a rise out of people (I'm not sure exactly which kind though), so just ignore the moron.

What are you talking about and where are you going with it. Make f***ing sense then post.

I'm no big shot, I'm just one of the album critics, and 26 years old is --ANCIENT-- don't you forget it sonny. One day, you too can drink alcohol without checking over your shoulder and sit at the adult table sans highchair and bib. Until that day, enjoy the Linkin Park and the Dixie Chicks.

I think kicking the guy out is a little premature, but i guess in a new band nothing is premature, still as u all obviously know people say and do dumb things when they drink. Maybe they should of given him a chance, just like Metallica should of given Mustaine another chance, def not comapring the two but, cant we all just get along bodomofmynuts.

Dude, Metallica would not have gotten very far if Mustaine was still with them. I'm not bashing Dave by any means, believe me, i'm just saying that Kirk was/is a more fluid and melodic player, whereas Dave was a much looser player who didn't have much feel. Dave's playing has gotten MUCH better over the years, but if you got those two together circa '84, the difference would be night and day.

Can we get an idiot filter, to go with the spam filter ?

Seriously, RM? gets the respect he deserves around this board, and its time that kids like Bodom, and other flamers on various threads realize that people like him, and deathbringer are doing this stuff for free, and it takes time to make these posts and hunt down new information everyday. We'd rather not spend time after that, going back and re-reading the threads for retarded children with nothing better to do but exercise their 29 word vocabulary. Most of us mods are married, have kids ( I have one, deathbringer has two under 4) and wed rather spend time with them, then wasting it keeping the forums clean. If you enjoy the material, and the site do us a favor and keep your mouth shut if all you can do is dribble moronic garbage. If not, find a new site.
