In a recent interiew with Guitar World, former Sepultura singer and Soulfly frontman Max Cavalera has revealed how he tried to imitate reggae star Bob Marley.

Interviewer said:

“Why do you seem a little tired in concert? It’s something I’ve noticed – but you’re still the best metalhead.”

Max responded:

“I think I might have seemed tired during a Bob Marley phase I went through. A couple of years ago, I would sort of hold the guitar and sing. I had seen some Bob Marley videos in which he did that, so I was trying to imitate him a bit.

“I think it backfired on me. People were mad – ‘Why doesn’t he play the guitar?’ So I’m getting back to that. You know, I’m 49 now. I’m trying really hard to get in better shape. I think next year you’ll get some good concerts out of me.”

Back in August 2016, in another interview with Metal Hammer, Max said that Bob Marley’s ‘Catch A Fire’ album changed his life. Here’s what he said:

“That’d have to be something like Ray Charles or some jazz or something. Bob Marley could be good, an album like Catch A Fire that’s good and mellow; it’d get you in the right mood but not distract you from what you’re supposed to be doing!”
