Now everyone knows that I like guest posts, y’all also know I don’t get many, but when I do I post them to share with all that will read them. It’s true, Holley @ Chasing Destino approached me about posting an interview with Twiztid that she believed would be appreciated by myself and all of the readers here.
And so, the interview starts now!
It finally happened. I had the opportunity to ask the group Twiztid anything that I wanted. Madrox was kind enough to tell me what I wanted to know.
So here are the answers that I have been waiting for this month. Now I don’t have to haunt anyone like in Mary Lou in Prom Night II.
Thank you Madrox for answering 13 ½ questions.
1. When did you start rapping? What is it that made you stick with it?
Madrox: Whoa that was a mighty long mutha-fuckin time ago. I would say the early 1990’s. We used to have a bunch of friends over our house on the weekends and one of the kids worked at a studio and would borrow equipment and set it up in our living room. We would get all wasted and just rhyme to beats. It was funny cause we really didn’t have any idea what we were doing and more importantly really weren’t very good at it.
2. Do you still enjoy Halloween?
Madrox: Absolutely, Halloween is the best! I’m a big kid at heart and I will always luv all the leaves changing orange, the cool night air, the pumpkin carving, the delicious candy and all of the scary ghost stories. Those aspects of Halloween will never grow old for me.
3. What is Fright Fest?
Madrox: Fright Fest is our Annual Halloween Celebration! Halloween has always been special to us and we decided to dedicate a specific themed tour event around that for everything Halloween! It starts off at Rock&Shock in Worcester, Mass and makes its creepy way around the nation until we bring it home to Detroit for Devil’s Night then it’s on to Joliet, IL. for Halloween itself! It’s definitely not an event to miss so if it happens to creep through your neck of the woods… do yourself a favor and come out and celebrate with us.
4. What is your favorite scary movie?
Madrox: I have so many, but currently this month I’m really digging Night of the Demons from1988, directed by Kevin Tenney. That movie has always been in my top 10 and every now and again I watch it back to back for a straight month… and this October is that month!
5. What is your favorite comic book?
Madrox: Of course, I have to say Batman… he is after all the focal point of all things comics and Super-Heroes to me, but a Jamie Madrox comic book fun fact is that the only comic book series I ever really read continuously was Todd McFarlane’s original Spawn run. Good stuff Todd!
6. If you could take anyone on tour to make a Dream Team tour who would you take?
Madrox: There are a few acts I would name for my dream tour… it would be Twiztid, our homie Rob Zombie, Korn, Slipknot, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, and HOK… that would be a stellar dream line up to me!
7. Is there anyone that you would like to work with?
Madrox: I’d like to work with Rick Ruben, I love what he brings out of bands, for example the Black Sabbath 13 record was amazing. I’d love to hear his ideas or take on a Twiztid record … that would rule.
8. Are there any topics that are off-limits?
Madrox: Yes of course. Lol
9. Can you describe your fans to me?
Madrox: Sure, but we don’t have fans we have family! We call them that because much like a family… together we are represented as one, tightly woven together like a extremely supportive wicked blanket of awesomeness. We luv the FAM as we call ’em and constantly let them know that without them there would be no us, and for that we are eternally thankful!
10. Do you embrace the term ‘juggalo’?
Madrox: Sure. Like heritage or nationality, I cannot change what I am. Nor do I want to… so I’m an Italian/Polish/Juggalo word life!
11. What do you think of the Wasco Clown that has been taking Instagram photos in California?
Madrox: I don’t think anything about it cause I have no idea what the fuck you’re talking about.
12. How excited are you to do a hometown show?
Madrox: About as excited as I am for any opportunity that me and my brother get to take the stage and play for the FAM… it’s always an honor!
13. Does anything scare you?
Madrox: Yes… I am terrified of carbonation and velvet, I hate the feel of it. It makes my skin crawl.
P.S. Madrox –Google the Wasco Clown on Instagram. It is creepy but I can’t stop looking at the pictures. Seriously, you will not be disappointed. Maybe you should take him on tour.
