Artimus Pyle

Artimus Venomus

Artimus Pyle, former drummer with Lynyrd Skynyrd, is pissed off. Actually, not anymore, he says, since he spits his Venomus at almost everyone on this new CD. With titles such as “Bloodsucking Weasel Attorneys” and “Spit,” it’s clear that since his departure from Skynyrd in 1991 there have been some unresolved issues in his life. So, instead of paying $100/hour for therapy, he recycles every Southern rock cliché and musically slams lawyers, rock-star widows, hot new country singers, and whatever else annoys him. Whatever. 2 stars
