Cannibal Corpse vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher is famous for a few things, including the size of his neck. While Fisher think it's pretty crazy that everyone is obsessed with his neck, he tells Kerrang! in a recent interview that he doesn't actually mind. He also noted that he thinks neck-related memes are pretty funny.
"Yes, a hundred percent. Everyone's always asking about my neck, and any person doing any neck exercises, I get tagged in it all the time. It's crazy. There was a meme, 'No Valentine this year, maybe necks year', which I thought was brilliant."
Because everyone is very interested in Neckgrinder, of course it came up in another interview within the same timeframe. Fisher said in an interview with Metal Hammer that his neck is just part of who he is, and that there are worse things to be remembered for.
“No, it’s part of me. I can’t be jealous of my neck – what would I do without it? Some women who in the adult industry have their money-makers. I sing in Cannibal Corpse, and my neck’s my money-maker. I spin my neck to make my money.
“If you do a George Corpsegrinder word association with people, the first things they’ll say is 'neck.' 'Neck' and 'headbanging.' They’re not gonna say 'He’s the greatest singer,' they’re gonna say 'his neck,' But, you know, there are worse things to be remembered for. I could be remembered for being a complete asshole.”
