Devildriver Frontman Urges People To Get Off Drugs Following Amy Winehouse Death

(RockAAA) Devildriver frontman Dez Fafara hopes that the tragic and untimely passing of Amy Winehouse can help people battling a drug addiction to face it head on and do everything they can to beat it. And he also claims he walked out on Coal Chamber because the other members were hooked on methamphetamine and he feared his being in the band was helping feed their addiction.

In an interview with Noisecreep he said: "Get off drugs. Get off hard drugs. If you're on hard drugs right now and you're listening to this, get off hard drugs now. Your spirit will tell you what's good and what's bad, and you know what you're doing. I feel sorry because she's a great artist, man. Her first record is amazing I listen to everything from blues to black metal, I'm not just that solid metal guy I feel sorry for everyone around her. Great talent.

"My whole thing is, if I see you going over the deep end, you're not going to do it on my watch. I left Coal Chamber because they were all on drugs, on methamphetamine, and I knew me going on stage was feeding them money, feeding them drugs. I left. And with Jon (Miller), this time I don't have to leave, you leave."
