Poor King Diamond.
The dude doesn’t do interviews often, and some twat journos gotta go and fuck up his desire to do interviews by totaling misquoting the dude.
King Diamond posted the following on Facebook: “A few days ago, I did [a Danish-language] interview with one of the biggest Danish newspapers, and when I got the chance to read it yesterday, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
“It was the most inaccurate interview I have ever seen. So absolutely wrong, that it’s almost funny sometimes,” says the King, who I’d love to interview and would never misquote.
‘There are passages which have been completely made up, lots of things I would never ever have said, plus the journalist even went so far as to invent titles for songs I have never written.
“For those of you who have already read it, you know what I’m talking about.
“For those of you who have not yet had the chance to read it, be aware, you’re in for one hell of a ride if you come across it. This guy has made me sound like a complete paranoid lunatic.
“One thing that might have contributed to this ‘interview’ turning out to be so horrible is that the journalist did not record the interview, but merely now and then wrote down words onto his notepad.
“I will never again do another interview with a journalist who uses nothing but a pen and a notepad.
“Without a recording, this guy had nothing to fall back on whenever he forgot parts of what we had talked about, and must have decided to just make up what was missing. Totally disregarding the facts.”
That’s fucking shameless. What kind of “journalist” doesn’t record interviews with a metal luminary like King Diamond?
A sham journalist. A lazy journalist. A piece of shit, and a disgrace to the profession.
