KING DIAMOND Posts Update; Has Beef With Notepad And Pen-Using Journalists

Saturday, 15th June 2013

Legendary Danish metal singer KING DIAMOND has posted the following update via his Facebook page:

“A few days ago I did an interview with one of the biggest Danish newspapers, and when I got the chance to read it yesterday, I couldn’t believe my eyes.

It was the most inaccurate interview I have ever seen. So absolutely wrong, that it’s almost funny sometimes.

There are passages which have been completely made up, lots of things I would never ever have said, plus the journalist even went so far as to invent titles for songs I have never written.

For those of you who have already read it, you know what I’m talking about. For those of you who have not yet had the chance to read it, be aware, you’re in for one hell of a ride if you come across it. This guy has made me sound like a complete paranoid lunatic.

One thing that might have contributed to this ‘interview’ turning out to be so horrible, is that the journalist did not record the interview, but merely now and then wrote down words onto his notepad. I will never again do another interview with a journalist who uses nothing but a pen and a notepad.

Without a recording, this guy had nothing to fall back on whenever he forgot parts of what we had talked about, and must have decided to just make up what was missing. Totally disregarding the facts.

Too bad

Just thought I’d share.

P.S.: The article is in Danish.”

King Diamond has been confirmed as a headliner for MetalDays, which will take place July 21st – 27th, in Tolmin, Slovenia.

On the official Facebook of MetalDays, this post was made: “With great pride and joy we would like to announce the last MetalDays 2013 headliner. There comes King Diamond!
