(Metal Hammer) Phil Anselmo made news in July when he took aim at rock stars with over-inflated egos. The former Pantera and Down frontman says he hates musicians who deliberately ignore their fans and praises legends such as Ozzy Osbourne, Ronnie James Dio and Lemmy, who all treated him with respect in the past.

Speaking at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall in Louisville, Kentucky, Anselmo says: "This is why I say I f***ing hate rock stars - because when I see some a**hole rock star strutting around like they wrote a song or something, it's, like, 'A**hole. Motherf***ers write songs in their bedroom. What makes you different?'

"You cannot walk 10ft in someone else's goddamn f***ing shoes. Come back down to earth, you f***head. I've met and hung out with Lemmy. I've known Dio, I've known Ozzy, I've known Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler. I've spent time with them and they're the nicest, most down-to-earth people I've ever f***ing met."

He continues: "If any motherf***er in a band ever struts past you, give them the old f***ing bird finger from The Kid. F*** those a**holes. You've gotta be real. It's so much easier to be a dick - it takes effort to be nice to everybody, but you know what? It pays f***ing off to sit, listen, talk with people, be real as f*** with people."
