What kind of metalhead listens to Dave Matthews? Furthermore, what kind of metalhead would listen to Dave Matthews and admit that shit in public?
Charlie Benante, that’s who!
The Anthrax drummer — in reacting to the band’s recent Grammy nomination, well over a year after the band’s album hit stores — was at a Dave Matthews Band show when he learned of the surprise nod.
“I was watching the Dave Matthews Band perform when I received a text saying ‘Congrats on the Grammy nomination!’,” said Benante.
“Huh? I had lost all hope of ever being nominated for another Grammy, but I guess I was wrong. We put so much hard work into Worship Music, and I am so honored to be nominated with a group of bands that have also sustained the test of time like the legendary Maiden and Megadeth. Heavy metal is a force, it has fans that range from six to 66, and I’m so proud to be a part of this force…it’s in all of us.”
Dude. Many demerits for not only liking Dave Matthews and admitting it, but going to see the dude live. I was forced to once by a chick. I spent the night drinking until I was blind.
