PHILIP ANSELMO: 'Eat Pussy Until Your Jaw Breaks'

Jason Bracelin of The Pitch reviewed the Ozzfest 2004 traveling festival when it hit Columbus, Ohio two weeks ago. An excerpt from his review follows:

"If you're standing there like a pussy, you are a fuckin' pussy," SUPERJOINT RITUAL's Philip Anselmo barked at the crowd of about 15,000 as the rest of the band members gritted their teeth and shook their dirty hair.

"Eat pussy until your jaw breaks," Anselmo instructed as he exited the stage, heading straight for his bus, where he now reclines.

Sitting in the back lounge, surrounded by a good fifty bottles of vitamins and health supplements, Anselmo knocks back one Beck's after another. He talks at 33 RPM, stretching syllables like wet taffy, his eyelids hanging so low you could blindfold the guy with dental floss. He often seems as if he has just awakened from a deep sleep. Probably because he was — in midconversation.

"I was thinking so deeply, man," Anselmo says after his assistant kicks him in the foot to wake him up and continue the interview. "Can you repeat the question?"

Then he picks up his train of thought, and it's suddenly full speed ahead.

"I don't need to do this shit. I don't need to tour. I don't need to fuckin' do anything like this, man. I could fuckin' sail the world if I wanted to," he says. "But music is the most important thing in my life, and when music goes down the toilet, maybe I do, too, man." Read more.
