(05/28/08) Hi guys,
I‘ll be missing the next few shows to tend to a scheduled family matter, but plan to return by the mid June dates. Our friend Scott from Face To Face will be filling in.

Greg K

Wow, this is pretty historic, i'm quite sure this is the first Greg K journal? Anyways, hope everything is alright.


BTW, does anyone have the video/link to the video of Greg K jumping during a show?

I don't think it is very serious. He'll be back in June so hopefully everything's ok.

I've known about this for quite some time know. I'd explain what it is, but I don't want to invade on his privacy. It's nothing to worry about, in fact, it's quite exciting! (I have a family friend who is a relative of Greg, it's pretty cool. Still haven't meet him yet :()

this could be interesting. Greg doesnt move much when he plays, im assuming Scott does. but on the other hand, it might not feel like the Offspring. but who knows? thats how i first felt about Pete, but he fits right in. hopefully everything is OK for Greg, but it did say "scheduled" event, making it sound like a vacation or something. maybe hes having a baby :D

hahaha well - if it isn't something bad but quite exciting family event that would pull him away hahaha---

if thats it then congrats!

In any case I know what other people are saying, even if he doesn't move much, Offspring without Greg K. is just weird, I mean, come on that power stance and the side to side sway? you can't beat that!
(And that's not sarcastic... I'm serious... )

Wow, this is like 2 scabs then. What is this turning into KISS? When Noodles and Dex don't wanna do it anymore, they will rotate in younger guys?:)

The thing ive loved about greg k the most is that he just seems so into his own groove whenever they play, the dance he does from side to side just fits whatever song they're playing and its so awesome, i've always been a bit biased towards bassists cause i feel they're usually the most under appreciated members of a band, how many bassists do you hear about these days? It happens yeah but it's fairly rare i find :), but best wishes to greg and his family, and we'll see you in june greg! :D

EXACTLY!

I love it... it just screams badass!

I mean I appreciate bands who run around and jump up and down and all this and that but there's something that in all of that and in all of the energy they have he just sorta does his own thing and it totally works and is awesome haha

Tijs
05-28-2008, 11:25 PM
Wow.. that was kind of a let-down. I got all excited about Greg writing a journal and then I read he's not coming... It'll be interesting seeing another bass-player at the show though. Anyway, I wish him good times back at home.

you guys going to the shows wont be disappointed though, Scott Shifflet is a great bass player. he and Pete were in F2F together for years, so they will click right away. i cant wait to see some videos of Scott!

05-29-2008, 01:22 AM
wow, might even be some new banters now, "Greg had to stay home" jada jada jada, and this might well be the first Offspring show greg has missed since like what? 89? haha. hope all is well in the greg camp, and im pretty sure he has gone up to the drums during "americana" on live shows, i know Noodles does it every time, but i figure Greg has done it aswell.

Congrats to Greg and his family on the new space invader! (If the pregnancy is true)

I don't mean to sound insensitive but I really hope he can make it back for Download in "mid June"

Jesus
05-29-2008, 02:38 AM
If it's a baby it makes sense (he also says scheduled) why they don't have any tourdates after Download and then again some in July (back in Europe). So Greg could be with his family. Congrats man!


I don't mean to sound insensitive but I really hope he can make it back for Download in "mid June"

Lol that's the last tourdate in June, my guess is he'll be back around the Paris show or the Interlaken festival.

If it's really a new baby, then congrats to Greg!:)

The Hungary show is in July, so I'm sure he'll be back by then, I'd love to meet him too.

Stop with the baby thing. Nobody said he had a baby coming. What if someone in his family is like having cancer or something, and all he reads is: congrats man! Think about it.

Drex878 knows what's up with him. He made a remark about the cause of his absence which was indicating that it's a positive event. And then someone said "maybe greg's having a new baby" and drex878 said "you're a good guesser".
That's pretty obvious, isn't it?

If you could schedule cancer, that would be both disturbing and amazing at the same time.

It's good that he announced that to us beforehand. I'm sure there would be many rumours if he just didn't show up on the stage.

Greg K. is pregnant.

Sure, just confirm me this. Greg still holds the record for the largest penis on the band, right?

Ok, now I'm really confused. The Spanish newspaper 20Minutos has just published an interview with GregK, where he speaks about today's concert in Madrid. He doesn't explicitly say that he's going to be there, but he doesn't say that he won't be there, either.

Maybe the interview was made before he wrote the journal, who knows. It's also unusual to read an interview with Greg K, too.

Here's the interview, for those of you who understand Spanish. For those of you who don't, I'm sorry I cannot translate it right now, I'm at work =P
