Slaves guitarist "ditched in Texas"

New Slaves rhythm guitarist Jonathan Wolfe has apparently already worn out his welcome with the band. In a now-deleted Facebook post, Wolfe claims that he was "ditched" by his bandmates this week in Texas amidst Slaves' current tour.
"The best April Fools prank was the one where I filled in for Slaves for a week and then ended up getting ditched in Texas with no luggage and then had to pretend to go home to recover so they wouldn't get put on blast. Hahahahahahah oh wait, that was real."
We're not sure if the following Tweet from Slaves frontman Jonny Craig and Instagram post from Wolfe himself are related, but it sure seems likely:

UPDATE: Over the weekend Slaves guitarist Alex Lyman weighed in with his perspective, which obviously doesn't jive with that of Wolfe:
"I could get used to all this bad press from people who have no idea what they're talking about, really helps pass the time on these long drives. "Btw I nicely spoke to Wolfe multiple times face to face, we couldn't find him or get a hold of him the night we left him, after the fact we got him a flight and hotel arranged, and he wasn't left solely cause he didn't load. He sucks to have around which is the reason every band he's played for has fired him. Everyone in the van got along except for him for many things we shouldn't even have to explain. "We hired someone and they didn't work out after speaking to them professionally multiple times so we professionally got them a hotel room and a flight home after spending 30 minutes not even being able to find him or get a hold of him. "Bottom line is he was fired for being un organized, egotistical, a very bad performer, annoying, a bad vibe in the van. We fired a hired gun and flew him home and he got butthurt and turned to the Internet. This happens all the time I don't see why there's an article on it?"
UPDATE #2: Wolfe has now responded to Lyman's remarks with a statement of his own.

The best thing for all involved is to tell us everything because airing it all on a public forum serves some sort of purpose

Passive aggresive turds. man the fck up and speak to a sagea face!

anonymous 4/3/2015 12:37:15 PM

When will people stop giving this band and fcking Johnny Craig a chance. Would love nothing more than to beat the living shit out of him.

anonymous 4/3/2015 12:48:51 PM

For a vocalist, that dude can't spell very good

anonymous 4/3/2015 12:50:28 PM

Who? What band? Never heard of em.

anonymous 4/3/2015 1:00:17 PM

two dickweeds arguing over someone losing their $10/day job. cut your losses and get on with life, guy.

anonymous 4/3/2015 1:04:28 PM

this dude gets kicked out of a different band every week... Falling In Reverse, now Slaves... damn son

anonymous 4/3/2015 1:13:22 PM

Didn't expect to be on Lambgoat, ever. Hahah. Also, I filled in for FIR, that's it.

tonyhawk 4/3/2015 1:18:55 PM

anonymous 4/3/2015 1:30:40 PM

anonymous 4/3/2015 1:31:54 PM

Maybe Doug funny and the funny can pick him up on there bad trip

anonymous 4/3/2015 1:50:36 PM

Why not interview jonathan to get the full story. J Craig is still a piece of shit and this speaks volumes once you hear the full story.

anonymous 4/3/2015 2:18:23 PM

Some guy who tried filling in for slaves and didn't make it a week*

anonymous 4/3/2015 2:19:26 PM

i hear that dude sucks to tour with

anonymous 4/3/2015 2:27:02 PM

You do realize Jonathan just had pretty heavy surgery and that was his reason for not lifting gear.. It was known to the band that he had surgery prior to taking him out on the road. Chris was left behind by Attila a few years back, you think he would've given more of a shit since he's had it happen to him. Once a jonny.. Always a jonny.

anonymous 4/3/2015 2:28:43 PM

apparently J-wolfe couldn't lift heavy equipment cause he just had shoulder surgery. jc's fcked off self should have realized that would be an issue. on another note, you dont fcking ditch someone 2500 miles from home with nothing. garbage. and i wish Slaves was coming to Dallas warped. literally may make an out of state trip just to stop by their signing and beat the shit out of jonny craig.

anonymous 4/3/2015 2:42:23 PM

jonny craigs merch bitch chelsea is a slut for real. me and my boys ran a train on that stank pssy

anonymous 4/3/2015 3:19:31 PM

Lol at Doug funnieb

anonymous 4/3/2015 3:26:47 PM

^^^chris isn't even in the band anymore. From what I heard, Alex Lyman left half his last band in Vegas on the alesana tour.

anonymous 4/3/2015 3:29:35 PM

Dude is a real scumbag.

anonymous 4/3/2015 3:46:06 PM

I'm friends with their old bass player Jason and he told me that Alex pressured everyone to kick him out in the middle of their first tour after he moved cross country to be in the band. They posted a status about his sick father and that was the reason for leaving because kicking out the black guy in slaves would look too bad. Covering that up and now the same looks like with this wolf guy. Jason said Jonny has a bunch of stuff including his iMac and he won't give it back.

anonymous 4/3/2015 4:05:42 PM

Johnny Craig is a piece of shit, gangster wanna gay... and none of his bands have been good. He should eat a fcking bullet.

anonymous 4/3/2015 4:06:52 PM

Johnny Craig is a piece of shit, gangster wanna be fa*got... and none of his bands have been good. He should eat a fcking bullet.

anonymous 4/3/2015 4:31:57 PM

what is this the third band hes played for and none of them have asked him back for a second time or to join full time? dude sucks and so does slaves. fck them all.

anonymous 4/3/2015 5:00:04 PM

alex lyman is the real reason theyve lost two guitarists this year, hes a whiny bitch who thinks hes gods gift to women. rumor has it JC fcked his bitch tho

anonymous 4/3/2015 7:20:32 PM

In all seriousness, who the FCK cares!?

anonymous 4/3/2015 7:42:12 PM

Johnny Craig. I can't believe that ginger piece of aborted shit is still walking the planet. I get it, scummy dude gets a bunch of trashy tattoos and sings like he's Justin Timberlake's fluffer and white trash girls and boys everywhere who frequent Warped Tour "feel it" and can relate. But he fücking sucks at what he does. Heroin will make you believe your own hype.

anonymous 4/3/2015 7:49:37 PM

If I were a betting man, I would put $ on that dude being gone by 2016. Either by his own hands, a hot shot or someone looking to even out a previous debt. He owes so many that it's bound to happen. Níggers don't run the big H game, just the small shit and the big game got wrestled away from the WP's. I'd be fücking tripping right now! Mexicans do that crime of passion shit. Cutting off heads and leaving them on the roadside just to send a message. Canada doesn't want him back though.

anonymous 4/3/2015 8:50:05 PM

Why hasn't anyone beat the fck out of these white suburban fcks for calling their band "slaves"?

anonymous 4/4/2015 6:58:58 AM

Lock em up in black dolphin

anonymous 4/4/2015 10:32:55 AM

Its very simple. Youre given a job. With tasks requiring completion on a daily basis. If you are unable to perform or complete said job then you will be replaced with someone who can. Thats business.

anonymous 4/4/2015 10:49:51 AM

idk why people are giving JC shit. it's clear this wolfe dude is a problem. From what i've heard this guy has an entitlement issue. i doubt this guy was DITCHED. sounds like a cry baby bitch to me.

anonymous 4/4/2015 10:59:28 AM

see alot of hate towards slaves but sorry dude you don't get kicked out of a band in one week for being a cool person who is really good at guitar. one minute of looking at his insta and I can already tell he's a poser. also JC is relevant? i thought he was out after the computer shit

anonymous 4/4/2015 11:51:39 AM

^sounds like the band is starting to post and defend themselves.

anonymous 4/4/2015 12:41:59 PM

downtown battle mountain was the shit, don't even front sageaaz

anonymous 4/4/2015 2:13:40 PM

"anonymous12 hours ago it's J-O-N-N-Y you retards. talking shit, yet you can't even spell" No one gives a fück. As far as anyone talking shit is concerned it's spelled C-U-M--D-U-M-P-S-T-E-R--F- A-G-G-O-T. Is that better? Great, now put down your sippy cup and put on your big boy pants and continue dancing around like a homosexual deer to Downtown Battle Mountain.

anonymous 4/4/2015 5:23:25 PM

Last time I saw Johnny Craig it was right after his AP Cover story(where he was pictured with praying hands.) He had 5 handlers at an all ages show at a venue that didn't serve alcohol. I heard he had 10 people keeping an eye on him at Rockin Roots a few days before that. Pretty pathetic. He is a talented junkie, but a junkie none the less and an A$$. People need to quit feeding the beast.

anonymous 4/4/2015 8:00:52 PM

he wasn't doing his job of... being a slave? When slaves kick you out, you know you got problems. Was this tour slave labor for him?

anonymous 4/4/2015 9:15:59 PM

awww did baby get butthurt cuz he can't spell a simple name? you mad

anonymous 4/4/2015 10:19:08 PM

Ya guys! OMG! Ian Ziering is pronounced "Eye-On Ziering" not "Eee-In Ziering" Lol gays! wut? yUmad bruhbruh? ROFLcopter!!!

anonymous 4/5/2015 12:01:23 PM

The only April fools joke is that you filled in for a band fronted by a drug addict retard.

shane_battier 4/8/2015 5:26:38 AM

johnny craig is still alive and performing music?

anonymous 4/8/2015 11:05:10 AM

All these morons in here hating on Jonny because their own band sucks hahaha. Get real kiddos.

anonymous 4/8/2015 2:08:42 PM

Alex, you're a fcking fart. Ego Flip.

anonymous 5/1/2015 9:50:48 AM

i saw this posted on facebook. I dont know the guys in Slaves, but I do know that Wolfe guy has been literally kicked out of every single band he's EVER been in and this just looks like another pity party. So I think there's truth to both sides...but clearly there's something wrong with this Wolfe guy since no band can deal with him. He burned his own bridges.
