In a recent interview with Lazer 103.3, Jacoby Shaddix, Papa Roach’s frontman, shared his perspective on the future of heavy metal. Shaddix believes that as legendary bands like Metallica transition to a status akin to the Rolling Stones, it opens up opportunities for established groups such as Korn, Papa Roach, and Deftones to step into that void. He compares their journey to that of Metallica, emphasizing the importance of surviving the challenges of rock and roll life and continuing to create impactful music.
Shaddix also reminisces about Papa Roach’s early days, aiming to emulate the engaging and memorable performances of bands like Stone Temple Pilots. He reflects on the band’s evolution since their major-label debut, proud of their continued relevance and ability to connect with fans. His gratitude for his health and well-being is evident, as it enables him to keep performing and creating music.
