Most of you that know me know that while at times I feel EddieTrunk has sold out and kisses ass to bands like Guns and Poses, (really Axle solo), Aerosmith, Kiss, so on, the guy does get sources on inside info. I saw a clip I had not seen before where he talked about the Francis situation. He said he spoke to Rudy and Klaus and they said that when the manager was fired back in 91/92? because of mishandling of money affairs, that Francis followed the manager , which led them to believe that Francis was in cohoots with the manager. He also said that there has been an ongoing court battle going on 20 years now. That would explain why Francis has been absent from any of the family reunions.
Wish they would hurry this up. 20 years and still ongoing? Common belief is that Francis did not steal money, but was friends with this manager, so guilty by association, but because of the lawsuit he can't associate with the band.
