(Metal Hammer) Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe says he's thankful the band were in their 30s by the time they found fame - because they'd have struggled to handle it when they were younger.

The vocalist says the relentless communication from fans on social media would have been difficult to cope with when he was in his 20s. Blythe, 45, tells Northern Star: "I don't have a Facebook account, and as you get bigger and bigger and more and more people start coming to see your band, there is always the ego monster that can creep in if you don't watch it.

"I think, fortuitously for myself and my band, we were all already in our 30s when we really started gaining some traction as a band. I think we would not have handled it as well had we been younger in our 20s. But we were already firmly grounded as who we were as people.

"I used to have a Twitter where all I would do is wind up arguing with my fans. Not all of them, I had a lovely relationship with most of them, but I didn't like the weird anonymous unaccountability that people had. The way they acted sometimes on Twitter and I am assuming that's the same on Facebook." Read more here.
