A Nameless Ghoul from GHOST Thanks Anti-GHOST Petitioners for Free Publicity
Earlier this month there was a petition for Swedish metal monsters Ghost to break up, because obviously that totally would have worked. According to various sources across the wide world of the Internet, there was also a petition for Ghost to ignore that first petition and not break up. Also a very solid idea and not a waste of time! So how does Ghost feel about all this? According to an interview transcribed by Blabbermouth, they don't care at all.
"These petitions, I could not care less. It's completely, completely, just stupid. For us, it doesn't make a difference. There is no petition in the world that can make us change. I mean, why would we? For me, I didn't even know that you can petitions like that before this. So I was just laughing [when I first heard about it]. And then we went on to the next page of our lives. It's just laughable, because these people, don't they realize that the more you talk about us, the more we're gaining? And if they don't understand that, you cannot do anything but laugh at the whole thing."
As if there were going to be another response? Every band knows there are people who like them and people who wish they would just fuck off for the rest of forever. In this instance those two opinions were manifested in the form of online petitions. That's fans for you!
In the same interview, the Nameless Ghoul also spoke briefly on the fact that Behemoth frontman Nergal pretty much outright admitted Papa Emeritus is Tobias Forge. Again, Ghost aren't much in the way of reacting heavily toward things.
"Not really. I mean, for us, it didn't make a difference, because it's just an assumption anyway. We are friends with Adam and the [rest of Behemoth], so we don't really have a comment."
So there you have it folks! No new information aside from the members of Ghost collectively don't care if you like them or not.
