Ozzy bassist Blasko blasts Eddie Trunk "That dude can go get fucked!"
Blasko & Eddie Trunk. Who do you think would win in a fight?
Ozzy bassist Blasko recently took a few swats at Eddie Trunk, read below.
Just about everyone has a Twitter these days, and for some like Ozzy Osbournebassist and Affliction Clothing endorser Rob ‘Blasko’ Nicholson, it’s a way of exercising opinions which runs the risk of hitting some nerves.
In what’s been dubbed a "heavy metal cat-fight" earlier this week, Blasko took a pot shot at New York City-based Sirius XM/Q104.3 DJ and ‘That Metal Show’ host Eddie Trunk, exclaiming via Twitter, "Was just listening to Eddie Trunk Live on Sirius XM … That dude can go get f—ed! Since when is that douche bag the ambassador of metal?"
Trunk, who can be heard on the Boneyard channel on Sirius XM, nonchalantly responded by saying, "Heard that Blasko said some stuff about me on Twitter while listening to my [Saturday] show. Don’t know the guy, no idea what his problem is!"
Given the uproar Blasko’s statements have caused, he again writes from Twitter, "In honor of the resounding support I received from my tweeps from my last post, I am putting "Eddie Trunk Sucks" t-shirts into production!"Neither party has responded since, but some sites are taking wagers as to who would win in a brawl should the two meet face to face.
Sludge will put money on Blasko, Doe Boy Trunk don’t look like the fighting type.This was found on Noise Creep >HERE<
Speaking of Eddie Trunk and being a tool.
We found this on Eddie Trunks website. It’s his "Trunk it or Junk it" section. This must be for desperate stupid metal bands who want to pay Eddie Trunk money and he’ll review their CD. This is laughable.
Any band who pays for this should be bitch slapped in the face, this is pure horseshit.
