What's in a Name?

Former Adler's Appetite (and Love/Hate) vocalist Jizzy Pearl has posted the following announcement in the forum at www.jizzypearl.com:

"Concerning the recent departure of members of Adler's Appetite, Keri (Kelli, guitar), Robbie (Crane, bass) and Jizzy (Pearl, vocals) would like to address the situation. The truth is none of the partners have quit Adler's Appetite. In February of 2003 Keri Kelli and Ryan Johnson (former A.A. manager) recruited each band member, Johnson later came up with the moniker Adler's Appetite. On October 19th, 2004 in the state of California, Jizzy Pearl, Keri Kelli, Robbie Crane and Steven Adler entered into a signed and notarized partnership agreement as Adler's Appetite legally binding them as equal partners. The partnership has sole ownership and control of the name Adler's Appetite, the EP Masters, the A.A. Website, DBA and all present and future interests from records, merchandise and/or touring under the Adler's Appetite name. The Adler's Appetite name and logo are registered trademarks owned by the partnership and its four partners. In accordance with the partnership agreement, no one single member has the right or authority to hire or fire anyone without a majority vote from all four partners. Steven Adler has violated this agreement and is in jeopardy of losing his share of the partnership and his right to the Adler's Appetite name. Booking agents, promoters, club owners, record companies, merchandisers and any and all hired players should be aware that a legal partnership and trademark exists and anyone reproducing the Adler's Appetite trademarked name and/or logo, anyone entering into any business affairs as Adler's Appetite without the express written consent of all four legal partners are subject to full legal action.

Keri Kelli, Jizzy Pearl and Robbie Crane want to thank all the fans for their support and apologize for the confusion."

Bassist Robbie Crane has issued the following comments:

"We didn't want to disclose our personal business to the world but, we don't have a choice. Keri, Jizzy and I agree it's time to let everyone know what is really going on.

Robbie"

Jizzy then goes on to add:

"I think everyone's missing the point. I'm the one with the website so I got elected to put up this notice so everyone thinks this is about ME. When a lot of people were asking why Robbie and Keri weren't going to Europe you (Brook) were the one that said they left to pursue other things...well, that wasn't quite true was it. Otherwise we wouldn't have had to put up this notice. Steven didn't fire anybody? No but his ##### did. This isn't Enron we're talking about, this is a GN'R cover band---no one is trying to wrangle Steven's fortune out of this. We all entered into a business arrangement with the best of intentions, it's a fairly standard agreement and it got fucked up that's all. People wanted to know and now they know, this isn't Kramer vs. Kramer. Steven didn't go to the Joint to 'make amends' with me, he went to stab me in the eye with a soldering iron, remember? I don't need to reassure Steven that I'm not sleeping with his wife the same way I don't have to tell him there's no Santa Claus. It's a weird bizarre delusion I guess but pretty straightforward as delusions go and I eagerly look forward to his next interview where I will be outed as Keyser Sose."

Robbie then concurs:

"I don't think anyone should start pointing fingers at Jizzy. Jizzy had his reasons for not going to Japan and while Keri and I don't necessarily agree with him we understand his reasons. The truth is he never came to any of us and said 'I Quit' and he was never legally voted out of the partnership. This isn't about money, a name or who fucked whose wife. This is about principal and accountability. We started Adler's Appetite together. Keri and I spent hundreds of hours doing the band's business on the phone, computer and in meetings with agents, promoters, airlines and venues without asking for and/or getting one dime more then any other member. (And yes, we have all of the payout receipts signed by each member to prove that in any court) and how do we get repaid for all of our hard work? We get replaced, for bullshit, unfounded no evidence bad advice reasons. Jizzy didn't have a problem with Steven coming to the CINDERELLA/RATT show at the Joint. I put Steven on the list in front of Jizzy and he didn't say a word. Even after Steven threatened to 'Poke his eyes out with a soldering iron' when he saw him a couple of days before. No one from the Ratt bus ever tried to stop Steven from coming to the show or going backstage, I would never have let that happen to Steven. So unless you were in the band, at the meetings, in the van, on the airplane or at the airport dealing with what we had to deal with to truly know the facts of what really went on in the band like Craig, Ryan, Fast Tommy or Armando then you are only hearing one of the partners version and again, a very colored version. None of us want anything from Steven, he has violated our trust and we don't want anything to do with him ever again. But, we do want him to stop doing business under our agreed partnership and name. We would have given Steven the name and the partnership for nothing, not one penny if he would have handled it properly.

Robbie"
