W.A.S.P.'s BLACKIE LAWLESS: Why I Cancelled U.S. Tour

W.A.S.P. frontman Blackie Lawless recently gave the following explanation via the group's official web site for the cancellation of their US tour:

"With the recent cancellation of our U.S. Tour I'm sure that there will be some out there that are going to be disappointed. I thought long and hard before this decision was made but if you could truly see what it is that I'm working on you would better understand. It took me a long time to get to a point where I believed that I could equal The Crimson Idol. That record took almost three years to make and it was one album. What I'm working on now requires all my time and attention not just to equal the Idol but to try to go beyond it and a double record set will push me to my extreme limits. I am hell-bent that I will not disappoint!!!"
