Kirk Windstein Explains Why He Left Down
Speaking to Devil Horns podcast he explains: "My life's changed a lot in the last year. With being married, I wanna concentrate a lot more on my family first and foremost. And Down, with us getting older and Philip's [Anselmo, Down singer] voice and now Down has to take a fair amount of days off in order for Phil to rest his voice properly, which is totally, absolutely understandable and well respected.
"It's just, for me, I like to go out 15 shows in a row and get it done. With Down, a lot of the touring, especially internationally, is fly dates and things like that and there's so many days off. And really, for me, to be blunt, on those off days, man… I mean, show days are great, I have a responsibility, of course I love every second being on stage, but on those off days, I have absolutely nothing to do and it just ends up turning into drinking too goddamn much and wanting to not be there." He had a lot more to say.
