Chaunce Hayden of Steppin’ Out magazine caught up with Evanescence singer Amy Lee and asked about the general feeling in metal music circles that fans don’t accept the group because she’s a female, and she doesn’t scream on stage. “I think most people see past that. But obviously there’s going to be some misunderstandings because there’s not any other music like ours,” Lee said. “So the fact that we’re talented musicians and I can really sing, and I write too, is bad? I don’t know. People seem like they don’t want to believe it. People assume that something’s out of tune or something’s fake or that I don’t do anything and Ben really does all the work. But it’s not true. We’re all in this together and I think that we’re a really good band. I don’t mean that to sound like I love myself or anything. But we worked hard for where we are. We didn’t get where we are because of some marketing ploy. Nobody said we should have a band that sounds like Linkin Park, only with a girl singer.”
