Well, it was fun while it lasted, but it looks like this whole beef between DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and DISTURBED may be coming to an end. Earlier today, Ben Weinman posted a guest blog on Headbangers Blog putting this whole feud to an end, blaming being initially misquoted by the author of the piece by writing:
I was asked in an interview about whether or not we practice our stage show based on the fact that we are so active. I simply said no, and that I once saw Disturbed sound check in London when we were playing the smaller club attached to the venue that they were playing the same night. I think our room was 1000 people and their room was like 2,000 people. They were practicing where they would stand and pose and stuff. I was just differentiating what we do and what they do. We don’t do that. Big deal.
Considering how the information was presented to them, I don’t blame them for being a little pissed. But to imply that we need to be taught a lesson from them about how it works in the big time is ridiculous. This band has been self contained and managed for 11 years. We have played in front of 100 people and in front of 50,000 people. We have been on national TV shows and covered in major publications. I don’t really care about their lighting cues or guitar solos. Good for them and good luck with that. I hope they sell a codrillian records and levitate over the crowd on a unicorn. Oh and just to clear another thing up… I never even responded to his comments until now. I don’t write our MySpace blogs. So again, misinformation.
Ok cool, but he did still say that Disturbed guitarist "Dom Deluise or whatever his name is with the little peen complex" but hey, we'll give you a pass cause that was f'n hysterical. We know that where there are shitty bands, Dillinger will be there to call them out on their small peens!
