Tom G. Warrior Hopes You Can Hear How The Beatles Influence Celtic Frost's Music
After years of hearing how Celtic Frost were the heaviest, darkest and most influential band in the world, I finally got my hands on a Celtic Frost album in early 1999. Imagine my surprise when I heard the unbelievable garbage that was coming out of my speakers that day. The album, of course, was Cold Lake. This video shows just how serious these guys were about that record. It was influenced by The Beatles? Uh, okay. This video also shows how really odd looking dudes have trouble doing the glam thing. As it turns out, it takes a mildly good looking guy to look a bit like a mildly good looking woman. Tom G. Warrior is one of the oddest looking dudes on earth so it doesn't work...not even his toned down version of LA glam was mildly convincing. Look at his pointy face and huge adam's apple bounce up and down. Also check out the Aerosmith and LA Guns shirts. Oh boy. Black metal never looked so good.
