I don't know how you interpret this other than exactly what it says. I'm from Philly and Todd is pretty much a legend in these parts. I personally respect celebrities that stand up for their beliefs, whether I agree or not. Hard to disagree with this personal stance.

I've managed kill off more than one post on this site, so have at me on this one if you so choose.

...and despite the Trump statement, like Alice Cooper, I found Todd to be intelligent and easy to talk to......and we talked a lot about him being at the forefront with a lot of new technologies back in the day, which will be in a future article. Right now, he is in the loop with some forthcoming Virtual Reality techs coming.

Great tune, very sarcastic but very honest at the same time! Thanks for posting, I'll get to the other two later.

He apparently received an honorary degree (along with some others) and gave a commencement address at Berklee recently:

Jesse Waters had Todd on his show and I actually thought Todd explained it well.

He didn't come across bitter or hateful, just said that the initial statement was in response to some shows he did where they showed the tin foil hat video and some audience members were not happy and the commotion carried over to the next song - so he was attempting to preempt that disruption by putting out the disclaimer.
