PHILIP ANSELMO On The Disadvantage Of Social Media: ‘I See It As A Social Sickness’
Former PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo states that he does not pay attention to what individuals write about his music on the Internet.
” It’s so easy for me to make music and not even bat an eye at what other individuals think, because I don’t go to music websites,” he told Ned of the Rock 108 radio station in a brand-new interview (hear audio below). “I do not go. I don’t know what anyone is thinking about absolutely nothing; I just go and play my programs and take it one day at a time.
” I have actually seen it affect people around me, for sure,” he continued. “I’ve seen individuals who sit there and are simply glued to those comments. It riles everybody up. And if you’re readin’ that shit throughout the day, I can see the tiff comin’ from a mile away. And it’s, like, you know what? You do not require to sit there and fucking read it. There’s plenty to do in this life instead of [reading comments online] …
” I don’t understand, man. Computer world– I have actually simply got ta take breaks often. I’ve never done Facebook. I understand what it is, but I do not care. I do see it as a social illness. I believe it’s unhealthy.”
Anselmo also addressed the reality that Web privacy helps individuals share individual feelings and enables them to disclose themselves in a way they are reluctant to do in reality.
” That’s flexibility of speech for you,” he stated. “But also I understand that since individuals seem like they have this privacy and they’re just another username on a platform, the hazards and all that type things, it’s truly cowardice, man. It’s weak– it’s weak shit, man. I’m not a fan. It feels petty and it simply feels weak, male. So I stick to boxing website and football website. [Laughs] It’s NFL season.”
Anselmo has actually invested much of the previous year carrying out traditional PANTERA songs with his solo band, PHILIP H. ANSELMO & & THE ILLEGALS.
PHILIP H. ANSELMO & & THE ILLEGALS— now including Anselmo with guitar players Stephen Taylor (SUPERJOINT) and Mike DeLeon (FLESH HORDER, BEING ELIMINATED), drummer José Manuel “Blue” Gonzalez (SUPERJOINT, WARBEAST) and most recent recruit Derek Engemann (SCOUR, ex-CATTLE DECAPITATION)– released the seriously well-known “Choosing Mental Health Problem As A Virtue” full-length last year via Anselmo‘s own Housecore Records. The disc was the follow-up to PHILIP H. ANSELMO & & THE ILLEGALS‘ launching, “Walk Through Exits Only”, which came out in 2013 to mainly favorable reviews.
