The current lineup of Sepultura might want Max Cavalera to shut his fucking yapper, but since when does anyone tell Max what to do. Now, in a new video promoting the year-end “Headbangers Ball” episode that’s coming up, Max says — in an interview that was likely done months ago — that he wants to do it for the fans.
The fans. Yes, because the fans have the money. And you can’t do nothing without the money. So, yeah, Max spoke about what he wants, which is in direct conflict with what the current Sepultura wants.
“I’d like to do it; everybody knows that,” he says. “When the classic four was together, it was really powerful. And I tried my best — I convinced Igor to go back; I said, ‘Would you come if I was involved?’ And I talked to Andreas [Kisser, the band’s guitarist]. And Andreas seemed interested at first and then after that, it got weird; lawyers started getting involved and shit like that.”
Gotta hate when those lawyers get involved. Because they always complicate things…with the money. They always want to talk about the money. “So I don’t know. And I read somewhere that the one that doesn’t wanna do it is [bassist] Paulo [Xisto Pinto Jr.]. Which is, like… I don’t know what his gig is; I don’t know what his problem is. I would just like to [reunite the classic lineup] — just for my fans. Show them what this band was all about.”
And because it would bring in lots of the money.
