R.I.P. Max Cavalera’s Dreadlock
My initial thought upon seeing this photo was, “Why are Max and Gloria Cavalera posing with a dead weasel?” But then I realized it’s not a dead weasel — it’s Max’s single, massive dreadlock, which he’s been growing for more than two decades.
Understanding that Gloria is holding a massive chunk of matted hair and not a deceased varmint, however, only raised all kinds of additional questions for me. Questions like:
- How much did that thing weigh?
- Did it give Max neck problems?
- How gross did it smell?
- Was the gross smell and/or the neck problems the reason he finally cut it?
- What are they doing to ensure it never hurts anyone again? (Putting it inside a steel safe and then dropping that safe to the bottom of the Mariana Trench is the only acceptable answer, BTW.)
While you ponder those mysteries, Killer Be Killed are getting ready to release their sophomore album, Reluctant Hero, on November 20. You can check out the most recent single and music video, “Dream Gone Bad,” here.
