Blackie Lawless Shuts Down W.A.S.P. Reunion Rumors

Blackie Lawless doesn’t plan a W.A.S.P. reunion.

The rocker recently appeared on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk and reflected on whether he would welcome any former W.A.S.P. members who played on the ‘W.A.S.P.’ album to join any shows on the upcoming tour:

“I’ve spoken to Randy [Piper] over the years, but not the other two. And I’m sure I don’t really need to go into the state of what might exist with the others. I think the fanbase out there is pretty aware.”

He continued, sharing the possibility of a reunion:

“I don’t wanna dangle a carrot in front of anybody and say there’s a possibility because as we sit here and we talk right now, I think there’s very little chance of that happening. So I really don’t wanna say, ‘Yeah. Well, you know…’ give you a stock answer and say, ‘Well, you never know.’ I really don’t think there’s much chance of that.”

W.A.S.P. Will Tour To Perform Their Debut Record
