When asked why he is doing a solo album, he said he loves “extreme music, underground music, whether it be grindcore, death metal, thrash, black metal” or whatever … he finds a lot of beauty in that kind of raw music and he is doing the new album out of pure need for himself.

According to reports, the dude was using Frances Bean’s washer and dryer and eating her food. He was eventually arrested.
