In May 2022 interview collapse Detroit WRIF a radio station, Chaos Talk about the status of his long resume in the works. He said, “It took a lot longer than I thought, but it was one of the most fun things I’ve done in my life. It’s enormous The amount of work because there are a lot of things, over the course of a lifetime, that you forget about, especially when you do what we do for a living. Anyone who does what we do, it’s not like the average person out there where you go to work and do whatever you want and get into a routine. There is nothing wrong with that; It’s different.

“I have often said that I am already…because of the timeline and the way it is done Which The band has to do things – you are here today; You’re somewhere else tomorrow – it’s as if you’ve already lived four or five years of someone else’s life. “And because of the amount of intensity transmitted to the same space that everyone has. Twenty-four hours for someone doing this doesn’t equal twenty-four hours for someone in a routine. And it can get a little crazy.”

“The first thing I did was meet everyone I could think of and said, ‘What are your memories of this?'” Blacky open. “So I got those. But then, where I got most of it was really going back in my head. And the more I got into it, the more things I completely forgot. Because, like I said, there are so many things that are going to happen on a given day.” Just The thing you remember is bone intense thing. But maybe the other two or three things under it were just as intense, but you don’t remember it. You remember being on the plane at the time the men got angry at a flight attendant and stuffed her in the overhead bin, but you don’t remember the two or three things that happened underneath. This is a true story, by the way.”

When asked what he learned about himself from delving into his life while writing his book, Blacky He said, “In the preface to the book, I write that this was a process of discovery—good or bad. I would say, after all was said and done, it was far Better than bad, because what was done to me, it was like writing a script for a movie. And again, like I said, there Much One of the things I forgot. But at the same time also, what it does is it helps you connect the dots of your own life, maybe things you didn’t really think about were connected, and you go back and look at it and go, “That’s as clear as the nose on my face. Why haven’t I seen this before?” And there were a number of incidents like that—just personal things that might not be something you could share with anyone else, because it wouldn’t make sense to them. But then again there may be things present. So I hope that when people read this, they will see a lot of themselves in it.”

As for whether fans can expect to see him Blackynew book wasp The album was released simultaneously, Chaos He said, “That was the plan at first, but the book is taking a lot longer than I thought. We were talking about making records and trying to get it right. Well, it’s the same with this—I’ll do it once, and I want it to be right.”
