I doubt Madonna or her fans will pay for Monte's next album though, and Adam's fans certainly won't do it the next time around.


You're right. They won't.

While I respect Monte's guitar skills, I never thought his look fit with the rest of Adam's Glamnation group....eventhough he isn't that much older he kind of looked like the Father of the group. ph34rwave.gif

He did.

What bothered me about him, was that he was a good guitar player, but he knew it. He wasn't content to let Adam shine in the spotlight - he had to get in there and try to steal some of it for himself, whether he was invited to, or not. That's what I LOVE about Tommy playing lead guitar - he's content just to stand in the back and let Adam do his thing.

I don't like Monte either. I don't think he's capable to steal Adam's spotlight, no matter how hard he tries. However, can you please explain how he was trying to steal Adam's spotlight (apart from playing in his own so-called rock style music)?

[I must confess: even when Monte performed his 'Sleepwalker' solo live in the GNT in the UK, my eyes were staring at Adam all the time anyway. lol]

I just felt like he was trying to horn in on Adam, when he'd go up on the platform and whatnot. Making sure he was seen.

But that's what guitarists do. Especially when they have a 'solo' moment during a song. Tommy will do the same thing. A great and giving artist like Adam will let his band members have their moments. It's not anything unusual.

When a guitarist has the talent...I love them to show it off a bit....like Brian May....Slash !!!!

MP has some skills as a guitarist to show off......what he seemed to lack was principles blushing.gif

Oh Well.....bridge burned ........moving on original.gif

Monte is no Brian May and no Slash.

He does not have the talents, skills, charisma, humanity, or intelligence of Brian May.

He does not have the talents, skills, charisma, or hotness of Slash.


Monte will never be able to upstage Adam, even if he tries. Also, he doesn't seem to be a good team-player...Adam needs a backing band who will be supporting him (the solo artist), not showcasing themselves.

Anyway, good bye, Monte!

I don't think Monte is very tall, whenever he stood next to Adam he looked short and "old" (going off to the naughty corner).

LMAO I laughed at the pic too. Adam never would have made him dress like that.

You guys crack me up...

He's going to make a fortune touring with Madonna this year.

And he has a show at Whiskey this Saturday night that many of us are looking forward to.

Amazing that we all can't just get along heart.gif heart.gif heart.gif

But I do enjoy the snark.

I am going crazy waiting for Adam to get back on the road in the U.S. Can't believe that I haven't seen him perform in over a year! Yuck!!!!!!!!!!! You people who saw him in Montreal were lucky, lucky, lucky!!!

Well, since Monte had toured with Madonna a few times before, he must have already made a fortune. Then why did he accept money from the other people for his KickStarter project and for his travelling during the GNT?...Was it out of necessity or out of greediness?

However, I highly doubt many of Adam's Adam fans are going to support Monte in the future anyway. Bridges are burnt.

This. All of that "money acceptance" made me raise my eyebrow a little bit.

I didn't know where to put this but ... I don't wish Monte any ill will - I really don't because you know there are two sides to every story. That being said, it gave me so much pleasure to see Monte only for a millisecond during SB dressed up like a ridiculous chunky high school band member while when playing for Adam he got to dress and play like a bad-ass rock star showcasing his talents on national TV and internationally always being publically thanked and recognized by Adam. Sorry for the run-on sentence. Monte will rue the day that he burned that bridge. And so will big-mouth Lisa.



Just in the interests of total fairness, do have to say that Adam did dress him in (or lend him) his leather poncho at Fantasy Springs!!!!!!! Which might look bad-ass rock star on Adam, but on Monte ............................... haha.gif

Indeed he did! It was quite funny! I particularly liked how Adam looked there. Don't really even remember how Monte looked, to be honest.

Monte's Kickstarter let many of us feel involved with his album, so for most of us, it was no harm, no foul. I liked that. One of the fun things about living in L.A. is being able to be involved in all this. Don't disparage those of us who enjoy that. I have been able to stay friends with people who don't like each other and who think bridges are burned. I value both friendships. I stay interested. Same here...
