So I know that everyone thinks that the heavy metal lifestyle revolves around be sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll -- but really, that mentality is pretty cliché. Overstated. Presumptuous.
Then again, I've clearly never been a rock star; but the majority of the ones I interview are more obsessed with their musical proficiency, the state of the industry today, and how heavy metal can make the world a better place. Nowadays, it's commonplace to hear about huge charitable music festivals, nonprofits started by people like Bono and Madonna, and musicians supporting a cause close to their heart.
