Autograph drummer Keni Richards says: “I WAS fired PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”


Revolving Door — In recent months the world has been receiving incoming from the band Autograph. Yes, the “Turn Up The Radio” band from the 80s. This all seemed to come out of left field after hearing next to nothing from the band or their collective ex members for years. Actually decades. Then in one fell swoop we heard from original drummer Keni Richards via his official Facebook that the band was back and reuniting.

Well sorta.

The band were on the come back trail, but without their frontman Steve Plunkett. But fear not, Keni and original guitarist Steve Lynch and bassist Randy Rand were excited and introducing their new singer Simon Daniels aka Danny Simon. Danny or Simon, whichever you prefer is  from the Los Angeles based rockers Jailhouse. He also fronted a band called Flood in the 90s.

Then on January 1st Metal Sludge heard word that Keni was being replaced by Danny’s drummer from Flood. We reached out to Keni, and he replied quickly -  the original Autograph can slammer confirmed the rumor but said it was; “for the time being!!!!”

Metal Sludge inquired as to ‘what happened?’  and Richards replied again with; “that’s a great question !!!! personal issues 4 me!!! that’s it for now!!!!

Well now it’s becoming a little more clear and it appears that Richards and his band, or former bandmates are not on the same page.

Keni took to his Facebook this week and now admits, he was in fact fired and says ‘THIS IS THE LAST TIME I WANT TO TALK ABOUT AUTO……I WAS fired PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

He’s also asked for photoshop help to essentially tell the band to F-off.

    And.the drummer from Autograph thinks anyone givesa shit or even knows who he is because why? Really, dude… you’re embarassing yourself, whoever you are.

  • Bryan Walsh

    Was a huge Autograph fan back in the day; Loud and Clear is a phenomenal album. Don’t see the point of a reunion though without Plunkett. I’ll be seeing them at M3 though, so we’ll see how it goes.

    yep, Gerri Miller is definitely writing for Metal Sludge

  • Peace Dog

    Give it a rest already with the Gerri Miller comments, it was funny maybe the 1st time even tho you were wrong…you might wanna look up your info again genius! Are you a fatty?

  • ElectricGypsy

    Obviously sinking to your level only gets your rocks off, so have fun with that.

    We get how you work: you’re an idiot, you proved it, so you shout louder to try to deflect attention away from the fact you’re an idiot. Well done.

    Back to the masturbation and sexual references huh? Dude, you’re in serious trouble. You got some tension at home in the basement? Gerri Miller and cum slams, that’s all you can come up with? What a sorry excuse for a headbanger. Electric ass-wipe is more like it

    keep trolling

  • havenoclue

    His fans care. He is the one who put the band on the map in the 80′s and the one who put it back together… so you have no clue…. do not understand how things are……

    I’m a fan of a lot of bands. That doesn’t mean I give a flying banana about a reunion without their original line up, especially minus the singer whose face made them recognized back when they were on the radio. Drummers who can be famous without their other band mates are rare. But even if I were a die hard Autograph fan, why would I care about a 50 -ish man who never learned to spell and can’t hold their shit together long enough to go on a tiny tour, and make a few bucks from the fans who remember them and want to shell out $20 to go to a dive bar to see half a band play their one hit? They are still playing baby high school drama rock star attitudes long after they ceased to be a star, if indeed they ever were. Seriously, who flips off the camera at that age and thinks it looks cool? Before people make these choices, they should refer to the LA Guns handbook for lessons on how to act like a douchebag, then do the opposite.
