(TeamRock Radio) Cristina Scabbia says she wasn't taken seriously as a musician when she began singing in Lacuna Coil. The frontwoman says being in a band wasn't considered a real job when the group were starting out in Italy in the 90s - when rock and metal groups in the country were few and far between.

She tells MetalSucks: "At the beginning it wasn't easy, because when you say you're a musician, people immediately say, 'Ok but what's your job?' 'I'm a musician,' 'Yeah, but what's your real job?' 'No, really, I'm touring the world, this is how I pay my bills.'

"People still don't look at musicians as people who really work. At the beginning my parents were worried for me, like, 'Where do you think you're going?' - especially coming from Italy. There aren't a lot of rock or metal bands from Italy."

Scabbia says that, though her parents are "proud and supportive" of her career, she rarely discusses Lacuna Coil with her loved ones. Read more here.
