November 27, 2009, 5 years ago
Metal Rules' Marko Syrjälä and Matti Martikainen have issued a new interview with W.A.S.P.'s Blackie Lawless. The following is an excerpt:
Q: It seems that you always have a lot to say, in interviews and on your lyrics, have you considered writing an actual book?
A: "I think about it sometimes but I don’t know if it’s that interesting. I don’t think I’m that important. I really don’t. Who cares?"
Q: But it seems that you have lot to say and you have a lot of interesting stories and opinions?
A: "Yeah, but I’ve done over 12,000 interviews in my career, that’s a lot of talking, and a lot of those old interviews are now coming online. What else can I talk about? Who cares if I ate leftovers, is that really important? For me telling some sad story is pathetic, I mean who cares?"
