The Crimson Idol

VHS Archives #46: Blackie Lawless of W.A.S.P. returns! MuchMusic interview 1992

“If somebody woulda told me what this business was like before I got into it, I still woulda done it.” — Blackie Lawless

The MuchMusic personality here is as yet unidentified (best guess is Angela Dohrmann; help anyone?), but that is definitely Blackie Lawless. The W.A.S.P. mainman (and only remaining member at this point) looks to be in England, judging by the red double decker busses behind. His new album, The Crimson Idol, was the reason.

The Crimson Idol is a concept album about the hazards of the music business, and Blackie offers his perspective.  His beloved horses are discussed again.  He also speaks of W.A.S.P.’s past as a shock rock group in an interesting way.  Check it out.
