Crüe Get Smacked
Godsmack frontman Sully Erna has had a pop at Mötley Crüe.
Talking to the Artisan News Service about the band’s reaction to being on the just-finished Crüe Fest 2 tour of America, the singer didn’t pull his punches about the egos involved:
“I will tell you, it’s been the most dramatic tour we’ve ever been on. I mean, talk about just craziness, man. Sometimes egos run high, man, and there’s definitely been some rock-star garbage on this tour that just have never seen in our career.
“I don’t know who needs to live up to whose reputations and I don’t know why some people consider music as a competition, but I will tell you that I have never been in a situation where I felt like I was out for blood, and honestly, this was the first time that I felt like, ‘You know what?! If there’s gonna be some people that are gonna treat other people a certain way, then I’m gonna go out there every night and fucking crush you on stage — make sure that we make you look old and fat, and go home with a nice big fat paycheck. You can sit in your world and I’ll sit in mine, and see you at the top again, I guess, somewhere…’
“All I care about, really, is playing music and enjoying myself on the road. I’m not here to compete. Everybody has their fans, everybody has their own music, and it’s supposed to be more like a brotherhood, but… I don’t know. It’s been a good time for us out here, but in other situations, there’s definitely been some uncomfortable moments.”
