Disgruntled PANTERA Fan Defaces SUPERJOINT RITUAL's Tour Bus

August 27, 2003

SUPERJOINT RITUAL frontman Philip Anselmo has posted two more tour "Tour Diary" entries on the group's official web site:

"August 23th - I'm engulfed in boxing. One on one. I can't stand many sports in general, for different reasons. Just boxing & NFL football. I hate Coors Lite. I hate Bud Lite. Lite. Light. Beer flavored water. Crap. However, I do like Amstel Light. I don't really know why. I like Heineken, St. Pauli Girl, Becks, Chimay Ale, etc... Heavier beers. Prostate infections in a bottle. Tonight SUPERJOINT RITUAL is finishing its Texas run. Some places we've played before some towns we hadn't. Every show was fucking brutal. Hot as fuck, but those damn kids kept coming. Mother fucker! The energy level of those crowds in Texas is destructive. The people definitely know the 1st album extremely well. The new album 'A Lethal Dose of American Hatred' is very surprising to me. Yes a lot of the people know it. (I fucking knew it!) Actually a lot of people are buying it. When we play certain songs, the crowd does exactly what I imagined when I wrote certain parts in certain songs. I envisioned their enthusiasm when we play. I see love in those swollen eyes. These motherfuckers are truly loving S.J.R. (Thanks!!) And personally, to the fagito that scribbled 'New Found' something on the side of our bus, you, my friendless, must feel incredibly alone. I've said it once and I'll say it again, I have absolutely NO bad blood with my former bandmates. Those years with PANTERA are some of the best years of my life. I wish them nothing but the best of luck. I hope they get their record out soon because the world needs more good metal. So honestly, some dumb ass fan scribbling their name on the side of our bus is a piece of tastelessness Vince and the boys would want to avoid. By the way, Texas fucking rules! You fuckers are so loyal and dedicated it's amazing. I'll be talking to you all real soon."

"August 26th - Had a couple of days off. Damn I was tired. On the 2nd day, I did some 'Heavy Metal' show for MTV2. Like I told them, they're really gonna have to do their homework if they're going to put together a REAL heavy metal/hardcore TV show. I know for a fact that VENOM, CELTIC FROST, IMMORTAL, etc. have videos that I could've played if given the chance. They gave me a VERY limited list to pick from (for mostly political reasons for sure). However, all and all, they had some decent stuff and the show will probably turn out o.k. But, in reality, the selections could have been better, not my fault. I couldn't sleep much at all last night and read an entire book about Betty Beets and her murderous ways. She was the Texas Black Widow Killer. 31 or so chapters. I devour True Crime literature.

"On a personal level, this goes out to a group of people who really means a lot to me. And their talking petty bullshit. Grow up, guys. Endorsements aren't the end of the world. Please be more professional. I'm going to be successful for as long as I'm around. I feel your fears. I've tried hard to be as cool as possible, especially as of late in the press, and let bygones be bygones. That's how the world turns fellas. Forgive and move on. I have.

"And to all the SJR fans who came out on the Texas run, all I can say is Thank You from the core of my heart. To all the longhairs, skinheads, anarchists, punks, and people of all walks of life who support what we do, HAIL!"
