“I Thought These Guys Were My Brothers”

Former EXODUS and current GENERATION KILL frontman Rob Dukes was interviewed by Mark Strigl for the latest episode of the “Talking Metal” podcast (web site).

On his recent appearance on the “Opie And Jim Norton” talk show where he said that he didn’t like the music EXODUS was writing prior to his departure, explaining that it was “just regurgitated shit that we had just done and done over and over again”:

“They did ask me some EXODUS questions, and I think I told the truth… I was completely honest. And it was funny that Blabbermouth took it out of context and didn’t actually put what I said on there. They took pieces of it and took out the in-between pieces that made it make sense and just put the shitty stuff.

“I didn’t get personal. I’m not gonna get personal about it. I’m not gonna talk shit about the band personally.

“The situation and how it ended was really shitty, and my friendships with all of them ended really shitty, when it was basically business. You know what I mean? I get it. But the fans don’t see it that way; they’re too attached to it. They love it.”

On the BLABBERMOUTH.NET response to the comments he made during his appearance on the “Opie And Jim Norton” talk show:

“I didn’t read any of the comments [on Blabbermouth]. My friend [told me], ‘Dude, you’re getting fucking trashed.’ I’m, like, ‘I don’t give a fuck.’ He was, like, ‘Don’t even [read it].’ And I [went], ‘I’ never gonna read it. I don’t give a shit.’ But he was, like, ‘yeah, they took it completely out of context.’ Honestly, I just stopped going [on Blabbermouth]. I don’t even go there anymore. I’m not in metal anymore. I’m just being a guy, you know what I mean? I have a regular job now. I work, like, sixty hours a fucking week. I don’t fucking go and sit at a computer on a tour bus anymore; I just… I don’t do it. I’m not that guy anymore. So I don’t care… I don’t owe those people anything. They don’t owe me anything. They don’t give me anything, and I don’t expect anything from them. They’re not a part of my existence. I don’t do what I do for them; I do it for myself. And if anything comes other than that, then I’m cool with that. But if it doesn’t, I’m cool with that too. You know?”
