Sevendust Explains Rockstar Mayhem Cancellation
Sevendust members Morgan Rose and Lajon Witherspoon have been interviewed for next months issue of Revolver magazine. In it, Rose explains why the band were unable to perform at the tour.
"We would've loved to be on that tour, but plain and simple, we couldn't afford to do it. I'm not going to say how much money we were offered, but at the end of the day the numbers didn't make any sense. It was like, 'If we borrow MACHINE HEAD's gear for every show, ride in a car with no crew guys, and don't bring any suitcases because they won't fit in the car anyway, we may be able to pay our bills at the end of this. But probably not.' So that was the bottom line. We would've lost our houses. And I'm not letting my kid and my wife live on the street just so I can go do some shows."
"I don't want to sit here and say, 'If they had given us more money, we would've been able to do it,' but that's the damn ticket right there!" said Witherspoon. "If they had given us more money, we would have been able to do it."
The band will be embarking on a tour with Saliva this summer.
