After all these years it looks as if Mr. Brett admits that he felt wrong about his fued with the Offspring once they decided to leave Epitaph Records.

Brett states:

"Well, I regret all the bad things I said about the Offspring in the press when they left. We were kind of airing our dirty laundry and speaking out emotionally. I should have kept that all to myself. That's the main thing."

Did you take it personally when the Offspring left Epitaph for Columbia?

"I did, and I shouldn't have. I learned a lesson there. It's business. It's not personal. I owe a great debt of gratitude to the Offspring camp, and I feel extremely comfortable saying that. I hope they read that."

This was taken from a recent interview done with billboard.com.

I commend Brett for admitting he made a mistake. Better late than never.

Business = Business but Offspring <> Epitaph !

I am pleased that Brett can see that now - but there has been a lot of water under the bridge since the Offspring left Epitaph. I guess it doesn't matter if the boys accept this apology or not.

I personally would tell Brett to go fuck himself

Perhaps because if the Brett vs. Offspring feud continued... this year's warped tour would be a looooooooooong one for both parties.

that is of course if the rumors are true that Offspring are coming back to warped this year.

Im just hypothesizing.

A band can't headline Warped twice.

Warped does not have headliners.

I've always taken Brett as a deacent guy. Not an asshole. Even he hating The Offspring.
Ofcourse you get pissed off when that kind of future sell get out of your hands. I knew that he said those thing that "The Offspring are sellouts" just because he was pissed off, didn't really mean them.

What, are the Bad Religion guys playing Warped too or something? Or are you just referring to the fact that a lot of the bands playing it are usually signed to Nitro? I guess if it wasn't too much of an issue in '05, it wouldn't be a big deal now.

As for Brett, he's a pretty prolific punk-rock figure, whether you all like it or not. Sure, he's a crackhead lefty fucknugget, but he's not all bad. I mean, hell, Dexter's a plagiarist and a control-freak, we still like him right?

Plagiarism is immoral and wrong.

Uh... yeah.

And plagarism is wrong, but I think that it was all one big twisted joke. Doesn't make it right, but seriously... it seems like something that he would do.

No, him joking about the lawsuit in the news posts is something that he'd do.

Not the actual ripping off of a song and lying about it, taking credit. That's just outright breaking the law and being an unrespectable fuck.

What I'm getting at is, we all traditionally rip on Brett for screwing up big-time in the mid-'90s following Smash. And his coke addiction. But all-in-all, he's done more good than bad for the type of music we love, and in comparison our own favourite little indie-record label owner isn't infallible either.

So bashing Guerewitz is pretty fucking douchebaggy.

Correction: heroin addiction.

Considering that the indie labels are the only labels who are proving to be profitable in the US, this might not be a bad idea.

I deleted a post before, but I think I shouldn't have, so here goes.

To me, it seems that Brett Gurewitz only "regrets" the way he treated The Offspring because he made them leave before hitting it big with Americana.

You're welcome, member of La Prole XD, and composer of Mexicana.

But why not??? Maybe Offspring will get retired in Epitaph, with one kick ass fucking motherfucker fuck punk album

It would not be wise to go from a major record label back down to a low-budget one that they've moved on from.

The majors are all deeply in debt and losing money by the minute. The indie labels are, by and large, profitable.

Correct! but it still wouldn't be wise to sign for a indie label if one of the majors want you
