I had no problem with Coal Chamber. In fact, I remember a time when I thought Coal Chamber was acceptable. But then they broke up, and DevilDriver rose from the Coal ashes, further inflating Dez Fafara’s hot-air-balloon-sized ego. I only say this because, for a time, Dez put a certain person I know through hell. I’m not naming names, but on more than a few occasions, I got to experience dude’s ego on overdrive. Later on, though, Dez mellowed. The last time I spoke to him, he couldn’t have been cooler.
DevilDriver will be on this summer’s resurrected Ozzfest and have rolled out a ton of off-date that’ll help make this year’s buy-on fee worthwhile. The first batch of dates are awesome. In fact, I’d go for the openers and then skip the fuck out on DD. From August 10th to August 23rd, Kataklysm, Skeletonwitch, and the almighty Saviours will be traveling with Dez et al.
