Melvins Frontman: 'Most Rock Stars Are Whore-Mongering Drug Addicts, Why Listen to Them About Political Issues?'
Melvins frontman Buzz Osbourne gave rock stars quite a slamming, calling them "whore-mongering drug addicts" who aren't even capable of producing good music.

The matter escalated quickly during anĀ Alternative Nation chat, as King Buzzo initially discussed how "not everybody wants to hear a sh-tty digital download," saying that fans of CDs and vinyl are still present out there.

Asked on whether he'd change anything regarding the state of music, Buzz replied, "Why would I?" explaining how he's not afraid of change. Making a rare social commentary, the frontman then compared today's liberalism to fascism.

"I'm far too classic liberal," Osbourne elaborated. "The basic nature of conservatism is things staying the same. Classical liberalism is people who aren't afraid of change, whatever it may be...

"But not liberalism as we know it now. No, it's a lot different. It's closer to fascism. I have no interest in telling people what to do. Not at all. Not in any fashion. I believe as long as we're not hurting anybody else I don't see any reason why I should tell you what to do. And that's called freedom. [Laughs] And that's as close to a social commentary as I'll make."

Getting closer to rockstar ripping, the musician added, "I don't make, you know, comments about the president, or anybody, wars, none of that. I have my own private ideas about all of it, but publicly I'm not going to get involved with that. It's a bad idea, I think it's stupid."

Dropping the attention-grabber, Buzz stated, "People should make up their own minds about that kind of stuff. Present company excluded, most rock people are whore-mongering drug addicts, who can't even make good music. Why would we listen to them about a political issue? Or actors. Most of them wouldn't work 2 months for two million dollars. There's nothing you can learn from them - nothing. So why should we listen to them about any issue?

"Because they just want to make themselves look like they're good people and they're not at all. So I look to higher sources. I don't care about what any of those people think," he concluded.
