Godsmack’s Sully Erna Calls on Celebrities for Pandemic Advice
Godsmack frontman Sully Erna called celebrities for offering medical advice during the pandemic in an interview with Mindy Novotny of Milwaukee 102.9 The Hog radio station. You can listen to the full interview below.
While many celebrities, musicians included, have pleaded for people to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, Erna had a different idea.
“I get paid to be an artist,” says Erna. “This is the position that I have chosen. So I will focus on entertainment, making people smile, healing people through music. And anyone else who has celebrity status that pushes people into a one way or the other when you have no experience a medical expert or a politician my advice is to shut up and let people go about their lives because you don’t know the consequences when you push them one way or the other in the other. So why don’t you just do what you’re good at and entertain, because that’s what you are. “
Erna also recently moved Godsmack’s studio from Massachusetts to Florida to complete their latest album. This decision appears to have been heavily influenced by the pandemic. He spoke about his decision to move to a video interview in April.
“I recently bought a property in Florida because I just wanted to get away from all this nonsense going around the country. I don’t want to follow this whole conversation just yet, but I’ve learned a lot from it. political nonsense and bullshit that happened with COVID about people and how everyone behaved during it. And I just wanted to check it out a bit and focus on myself, my life, my family and my group, which is doing great, by the way. ” [via Blabbermouth]
