Phil Anselmo: 'I F--king Hate Rock Stars'
Phil Anselmo has been talking to Zoiks! Online (via Blabbermouth) about his onstage-persona versus his offstage one. As ex-Pantera and current Down singer notes, his onstage behavior comes about needing to be a dominant force:

"Yeah, everybody wants to ... not everybody, but I will say I have met folks who want to see if they can push buttons or test the tough guy or some sh-t like that. What they really don't understand is that when you're on stage, you're really just trying to be that dominant force up there. Sometimes that can be misread completely. I think I crack enough jokes up on stage just to let people know that I'm a pretty down-to-goddamn-earth motherf--ker, man. That's the f--king truth."

The singer also notes that he thinks rockstar posturing is "a miserable bunch of bullsh-t:"

"Personally, I f--king hate rock stars. I think it's a miserable bunch of bullsh-t.

"I think the more real you can be with people in general, they don't have to be fans or anything like that, just the more real you can be with people in any walk of life, because, honestly, I can't say I'm any good at much else than what I'm into, and if music is my f--king specialty, it doesn't mean I can walk in someone else's shoes and do their job, because I can't."

Do you share Phil's opinion? Let us know in the comments.
