Orias of TheEndlessFeed.com recently conducted an interview with LAMB OF GOD bassist John Campbell. An excerpt from the chat follows:
TheEndlessFeed.com: What has it been like going from clubs to arenas? What's it like playing to so many different kinds of people all at once?
John Campbell: It's been a slow build-up. Both are great but everything has its drawbacks. You never know the near future, we may be playing arenas now but who's to say that we won't be playing clubs in the future. It's been an incredible experience, for everyone. It's great meeting new people, but the people who really stand out are people like the guys in OVERKILL. They have been doing this for forever and it's great. Whoop-ass band.
TheEndlessFeed.com: You guys just finished the Unholy Alliance tour, which I saw you on. How was it being on tour with such good bands? What have been some other great shows you've seen?
John Campbell: This has definitely been the best tour we have ever done, the dudes in all the bands were amazing, the bands were amazing, and all of the venues were great, basically everything was amazing. SLAYER definitely has the craziest fans ever. We have had some great tours, and seen some great shows. GWAR puts on a great show, and the coolest part is it changes all the time. It changed my life when I was 17 and since they were from Richmond I just walked down to see the show and was completely blown away. It's even cooler to now hang out with them and see that they are normal people with normal lives; they are just cool dudes with really positive energy.
TheEndlessFeed.com: If you could change one thing about being on the road what would it be?
John Campbell: That's actually a really fucking good question. I would probably make it possible to shit on the bus. We miss our families and friends but you take the good with the bad. My biggest complaint would have to be those long rides and you wake up with your stomach grumbling and nowhere to go. I have shit in a plastic bag more than once.
