In June 2005, you stated that Coal Chamber’s hiatus was permanent and that the band would not be reforming at any time in the future. You also described a reformation as “like repeating the 4th grade again”. What made you change your mind? Was the show of 2008 with them a starting point?
What happened is when I left the band we were all on drugs really bad. I left the band because of it. Then in 05 Meegs [Rascon] came up and apologized to my wife and children at a party, at a show in Los Angeles and I thought that was really a big one of him. In 09 Meegs came up with Devil Driver and did Loco, you can youtube it, and after that he said “look, I really want to do this”, and I said “if you guys stay off of hard drugs, I would love to do a few shows”. And that being said now in 2012 we’re gonna go over and we’re gonna do shows in Australia and see how it goes. For me, it was a big part of my life, and a big part of a lot of people’s life. Most of the music from that era has really held up, some of the biggest bands of the planet are from that era, from the era when Coal Chamber was around. If you look at Slipknot, Coal Chamber took Slipknot on their first US tour ever, System Of A Down, they opened for Coal Chamber for the first three years before they ever had a record deal, I can go on and on… Disturbed opened for Coal Chamber in Chicago everytime we came through before they had a record deal… It feels like the appropriate time to revise up the music. I wanted to do it before we all get older, and since we’re off of hard drugs it’s gonna be fine to see them on a hundred percent on stage.
