Job for a Cowboy

I’ve been out of pocket all weekend, either camping or drinkin’, so I just now had a chance to discuss the interview posted (excerpts anyways) with Job for a Cowboy’s lead singer Jonny Davy. The best quote is in the headline – “If a girl came up to us, we wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves”.

Actually, the whole discussion is a pretty honest appraisel of the band itself and Death Metal in general by what seems to be a grounded member of the scene. If you’ve ever seen JfaC live, you know they kill, I mean KILL, on stage. Very brutal, very heavy – even for Death Metal. But according to Davy, it’s not a well paying situation (which I figured) and doesn’t get too many chicks (now THAT surprises me).

I always figured EVERY musician got his share of groupie goodness, just the level improves as you become more famous. Hell, when I was in college our house band ‘The Elves From Hell’ even got groupies – scary, infected toothless varmits but we had’em. You know it’s bad when you can be stumbling drunk and STILL not be tempted by them. Although our bassist Chuck may have taken the plunge, not sure.

But I digress – check out the link for the interview with one of Death Metal’s rising acts before fame & drugs ruin them (hope not).

  1. Actually, I’d guess Chuck was the one least likely to travel down groupie lane. You on the other hand… 😉

  2. Admittedly, I was the more inclined at that point in my life. However, on one particular occasion Paul (our vocalist) and I threw Chuck under the bus with a couple of drunken skanks. He was too polite to just run away, so he ended up talking with them (or fending them off) for quite a while.

    I just enjoy talking trash about the lad because I know in reality he was very unassuming.

  3. I simply could not leave your website before suggesting that I really loved the standard info an individual supply on your visitors? Is going to be again ceaselessly in order to check up on new posts
