    Hang on...living on a tour bus since he was 14?  :rolleyes:  So Anthrax started touring in 1977?  Although I was never a big fan of his playing, (or Anthrax, for that matter), he is a pretty interesting/odd character, that's for sure .

    Anybody ever read his '20 questions' at Metal Sludge?  Bizz-fucking-zarre!! is probably the best word to describe that interview...

    Highly intelligent, and definitely one of the weirdest "left turns" in rock history, I'd say.

    An enjoyable read, and his work with autism is highly commendable.  :clap:

    The interview is rather interesting and suprising, indeed.  But these 20 questions at metal sludge... he may be a champion of clockworks, but it sounds like something has scrambled his gears...  :nuts:  :chuckle:

    King Diamond + cuckoo clock!!!

    He has a history of saying he's starting bands and projects that never really are real.

    His playing on the reunion tour was pretty bad. His playing on Spreading the Disease was awesome. When we saw them on the reunion tour, my wife said "why is that guy on his knees?" I said, he's really short! D'oh!

    I have the live DVD from that tour. It's embarassing. He plays like shit, and only talks about clocks in the interviews, ignoring all questions about the band.
    Fruitcake :nuts:

    In the midst of the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
