On February 2nd, W.A.S.P. released the critically acclaimed 25th anniversary edition "ReIdolized (The Soundtrack to the Crimson Idol)" of the iconic hit album "The Crimson Idol." The re-recordings of one of the best concept albums of all times tell the legendary story of Jonathan Aaron Steele, an abused child looking for love. Discovering music years later, he rises to international super stardom. Later followed by a catastrophic fall.
W.A.S.P. now released a lyric video adaption for the song "Docter Rockter" from the original motion picture, which comes as part of "ReIdolized (The Soundtrack to the Crimson Idol)" on BluRay and DVD! The song displays Jonathan Aaron Steele's path to self-destruction through drug abuse and meaningless encounters to numb the pain he feels inside.
Blackie Lawless states about the video: "Few times in life or art does reality mirror or equal imagination. The casting of the characters in this portion of the story, specifically "Doctor Rockter" was precisely what I had envisioned when I conceived those lyrics. Rarely does it marry together as well as it did in this video. The characters were suitably revolting.......and REAL!"
