Just got an amusing email from Justin Moore, frontman for the Cape Fear-lovin', perennially DOMA-nominated hard rock act Max Cady.
Seems Moore is starting to work on an upcoming solo record--and he didn't realize until just recently that there's already a solo artist named Justin Moore out there. Oh, and better yet, until recently, this other Justin Moore was scheduled to perform on October 3 at House of Blues' Pontiac Garage. Much to the local Moore's chagrin, of course. Especially considering that the other, Nashville-based Moore has a song called "I Could Kick Your Ass."
Writes the local Moore:
"I finally started recording my solo record and this douche bag, that shares my name, surfaces. What an asshole. 'I Could Kick Your Ass.' Are you kidding me?"
At least the canceled HOB date is sitting well with the local Moore: "Guess I don't have to kick his ass," he says. --Pete Freedman
