Clutch Frontman Doesn’t Fake Angry
Clutch frontman Neil Fallon spoke with Time Off magazine about the band’s fictionalized lyrics. “To be honest, I’m very blessed,” Fallon explained. “I don’t have a lot of angst, so I can’t have a real angst-ridden song. I’m really not that angry, but I think I faked it a little bit at the beginning, which I wish I hadn’t have.” Though fictitious lyrically, it isn’t performed without emotion. “You have to be emotional to make music,” Fallon said. “And even though it’s fictional, I look for more tangible things. Memories, or love, loss, those are all important things that will always be in music; but I’d rather talk about spaceships. Writing an elaborate lie; that’s great fun.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
