It’s all fun and rock-n-roll until your bass player slaps you with a guitar across the face. How do you recover from something like that?
Hate is a powerful stimulant but it has a tendency to backfire on those who go too far, especially in the show business. Without further ado, here are 7 band mates who hate one another.
1. James Hetfield & Lars Ulrich vs Jason Newsted – Metallica
After the tragic death of Cliff Burton, Metallica recruited Jason Newsted, who had been their new bassist for 15 years. That is until he quit, as he was getting fed up with Hetfield and Ulrich basically bullying him.
2. Caleb Followill vs Jared Followill – Kings of Leon
Family is the most sacred thing in the world! That is, until you actually have to work alongside with them. A fun job turns into a nightmare. Kings of Leon is a family band, basically, so you just know stuff will go down at some point. Caleb drank too much and acted silly, which Jared, his brother, didn’t like too much. If only Jared let Caleb do his thing this conflict could’ve been avoided.
3. Eddie Van Halen vs Everyone Except Alex – Van Halen
You know, for the longest time I assumed that Van Halen was just one dude, but then it turned out to be a band, and not a bad one to say the least. But throughout the years Eddie and David Lee Roth were like the worst enemies. But he wasn’t the only one whom Eddie despised. Michael Anthony was a “garbage” bassist, according to him. Geez, is there anyone this dude actually liked, aside from himself?
