Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn has reflected on how he was once asked to join Drowning Pool.
Writing via a journal entry on the band’s Facebook page, Flynn is honest and gives insights into the offer.
“In the middle of all this, Dave Williams, Drowning Pool’s singer passed away and their manager offered me both a chance to sing for them as well as a pretty hefty paycheck. So for about 2 weeks Genevra and I debated about why I should or shouldn’t do this. We desperately needed the money.
So finally, I stood in front of a full length mirror, looked myself right in the eye and said to myself, “go ahead sing “Let The Bodies Hit The Floor” with conviction AND, believe it.” It’s a decent song, I’d seen them a few time live, they and Dave were good, but as I began singing it, something in my body just stopped. I couldn’t sing it, I couldn’t feel it and there wasn’t an ounce of conviction in the delivery. My body, my entire being rebelled on me!”
