HOLY CRAP, IS BRENT HINDS SOBER OR SOMETHING?
Guitar World, the favorite magazine of six string dweebs everywhere, has video of Mastodon in the studio recording their forthcoming Crack the Skye, and what struck me most about the footage is this: how different Brent Hinds seems from the crazy dude of interviews past. Is this really the same guy who did his entire part on the band’s The Workhorse Chronicles DVD from inside a shower? I guess he learned his lesson from all the drunken drama of the past few years.
I was kind of looking forward to Hinds becoming his generation’s Ozzy Osbourne – in the “Hahaha he peed on the Alamo while wearing a dress” kinda way, not in the “Someone please just off this fucker already” kinda way – but I guess I can settle for Brent being happy and healthy instead.
