W.A.S.P. Frontman Blackie Lawless Has Some Words For Parents

W.A.S.P. frontman Blackie Lawless recently spoke with the Las Vegas Mercury about his music being slammed in the 1980's and how parents don't want to take any responsibility for their children. As the story goes, Tipper was walking down the hall in her house and her 12-year-old son had Fuck Like a Beast playing on his stereo, and she lost her mind," Lawless says. "I don't know if that's true, but that's the story I've been told."

"You don't have to be Nostradamus to see what's going on with young people these days," he says. "Parents just don't get involved with their kids as much as they used to. Are you going to tell me that these parents at Columbine didn't know that anything was going on with their kids? Hey, my mother knew what I was doing 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But parents now, they don't want to take any responsibility for their children. They bring something into this world, and then when something goes wrong, they want to blame everybody else for it."
