In a new interview with Rolling Stone, MELVINS‘ Buzz Osborne spoke about the fellow rocker Rob Zombie.
Osborne was asked by Rolling Stone to list his favorite grunge albums. He said:
“We played a lot of shows with [Babes in Toyland] back then, and they were always fun. We did a tour with them and White Zombie, and we both got treated like f*c*ing dogshit on that tour by the powers that be. It was a massively unnecessary situation of pointless rock-star behavior. I don’t know what was going through [Rob Zombie’s] head, but if making enemies is what you set out to do, well, mission accomplished.”
He continued, “I’ve been around people you would consider a rock star, like the guys in KISS, and they never behaved like that. It just makes you hate lower-level f*c*heads like Rob Zombie even more. If I got treated like that by the f*c*ing mailman, I’d hate his guts. So it was fun to have Babes in Toyland along.”
