Blackie Lawless: ‘I’ll Never F**k Like A Beast Again’
Blackie Lawless has claimed that he will never play Animal (F**k Like A Beast) again.
Talking to Norwegian website www.fvn.no, Blackie said of W.A.S.P.’s most notorious song:
“We haven’t done that song for several years. It’s totally because of my religious faith and it’s something that I don’t want to do anymore. I will never play that song again.”
Blackie also said W.A.S.P.’s blood-splattered stage show is very much a thing of the past.
Moreover, the frontman insisted that his raw meat-chucking antics of the past were misunderstood, calling them “abstract art”.
“I did what I thought was abstract art and tried to make social commentary through this – but nobody understood the social message. You probably thought we were a shock-rock band. I have never considered us a shock-rock band. ”
W.A.S.P. are about to tour the UK and Ireland.
The dates are:
Dudley JB’s November 27, Nottingham Rock City 28, Manchester Academy 29, Leeds Academy 30, Norwich Waterfront December 1, London Shepherds Bush Empire 2, Swansea Vice 3, Dublin Button Factory 4, Prestatyn Hard Rock Hell III 5, Glasgow Garage 6.
