Speaking to “Wired In The Empire” radio program, Clutch frontman Neil Fallon talked about the touring with legendary bands like Slayer, System of a Down and Limp Bizkit.
On what he learned from System of a Down, he said:
“We’ve known those guys for ages. We were both supporting Slayer, and they were the first of three, and we were in the middle. Shortly thereafter, they just blew up. We’ve done a handful of shows with them since.
We did a gig with them in Paris a few years back in a stadium — fifteen [or] twenty thousand people. It’s good to see folks from back in the day still doing it, and doing it successfully.
“At first, it stood out because it was unlike anything out previously, which is a good thing. It was a bit of a learning curve, and I think that’s a good thing for a band if you have a hard time describing it.
I have a hard time describing it — you have to actually just hear it. If you can say it’s like this or that, maybe the band isn’t as unique, but because it’s so unique, it’s very difficult to describe.“
On touring with Limp Bizkit, he said:
“Both they and we were supporting Limp Bizkit years ago on Limp Bizkit’s first record. Sevendust, I guess, is a lot like us in some ways — it’s the same lineup after 25-plus years, and they have a very die-hard fan base.
They bring it every night, and they’re good people. A lot of times, a band can be great people. Sometimes, they can be a terrible band and be great people. They have it both ways — they’re a great band and good people.”
