Whereas showing on the 2020’d podcast, Larkin was requested by the host (who appeared to have some inside information) about Erna’s relationship with Gaga. “I don’t assume [it’s] a secret,” responded Larkin. “I don’t assume Sully would bum out if individuals knew he dated Woman Gaga. I imply, she’s sizzling, and he or she’s mega gifted.”
The drummer went on to say that, in contrast to sure different rock stars, Erna didn’t exit of his solution to publicize the connection. “He’s not Tommy Lee or no matter, or whoever the man is now… What I imply by that’s — Travis Barker, Tommy Lee, no matter — is dudes which have public girlfriends which can be tremendous well-known, too. However they’re totally different than Sully. Sully’s an East Coast man. He’s like me [and other Godsmack members] Tony [Rombola] and Robbie [Merrill] — we’re East Coast dudes.”
Larkin proceed to go off on a tangent, differentiating between sure rock icons, and the way they current themselves in public. “L.A. bands and West Coast dudes, they’re flashier, possibly, they usually’re rock stars and there’s extra David Lee Roth than — I don’t know — Eddie Vedder,” Larkin surmised. “You realize what I imply? We’re extra Eddie Vedder, though we’re East Coast. We’re most likely even flashier than Eddie. He’ll present up in a military jacket. You don’t even acknowledge him. ‘Oh my God. That’s Eddie Vedder.’ So we’re in between them and the dudes with the flashy ladies on their arms.”
He finally reaffirmed Erna’s relationship with Gaga, saying, “So, did her date her? Yeah. However did he ever inform anybody? No — aside from his associates and us. The band, we knew … It was a quick factor, by the way in which.”
There’s not a lot on the web connecting Erna with Gaga, apart from a 2017 tweet by the Godsmack singer praising the pop star’s Tremendous Bowl efficiency: “This woman is the actual deal! @ladygaga probably the greatest sb performances I’ve ever seen. #respect.”
