Bee-otched For: dissing the victims of 9/11
It's sad when the man who helped to create one of rock's most innovative bands decides to make light from the worst tragedy in American history.
Gerald Casale, the original bassist of the 1970s/80s new wave band Devo is in hot water because of his wedding last week to Krista Knapp in California. Since the wedding was on 9/11, they figured, why not a 9/11-themed wedding?
Yeah, nothing like celebrating an incident that killed nearly 3,000 Americans and thanks to our lead idiot in charge, Dubya was a stepping stone to three very expensive and unneeded wars. Anyway, their wedding cake was made up of the Twin Towers with the bride and groom's pictures on top and cards were placed on the tables with their names engraved on box cutters. Real box cutters were handed out as party favors.
According to one of the guests, the Casales have a dark sense of humor, but Jerry is a 'sweet guy'. Bear in mind that Casale is also in a band called "Jihad Jerry and the Evildoers".
Look, I've been to a few weird weddings in my life, but if I went to a wedding where they poke fun of a disturbing incident like 9/11, I'd be taking the high road. If I was closely affected by the tragedy on 9/11, I'd be boycotting Devo for the rest of my life.
Time to hang up the energy dome.
