Cannibal Corpse vocalist George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher does not have a neck.
Instead, he’s got more of a cankle between his neck and his torso. He’s almost infamous for that neck at this point, and finally, Metal Hammer had the balls to ask Fisher why his neck is thicker than the circumference of his entire head.
“Well, it’s just from headbanging and lifting weights when I was younger,” says Corpsegrinder.
“My dad had a business where he did painting, roofing and everything, so I’d work with him all day long,” the singer continues.
“After that, we’d go to fishing spots to catch and eat all these fish. Then I’d jog over to my friend’s house, who lived about a mile away, and we’d lift weights. If you compare old pictures from when I was in Vile to now, it’s obviously grown and the only thing I’ve really done since is headbanging, which must be fairly similar to weightlifting.”
George says “If you really look at it, it’s bigger than the base of my head or where my ears are. A friend of mine once said, ‘You don’t have a head, you’re a neck with lips.’ A lot of security guys will come up to me and complain about working out, but having skinny necks, and ask how I do it. I tell them to listen to [Slayer’s] ‘Reign In Blood’ and headbang the whole way through after working out.”
