Warped Tour and Mayhem Festival Boss Sorry For Insulting Metal Bands
He has since issued a statement via Blabbermouth, apologizing for speaking his mind and insisting that the challenges associated with booking bigger acts won't put him off.
Lyman says: "There has been a lot of talk on the internet about an interview that was done by me a few weeks ago - and I said some things to a reporter that I now regret. In a nutshell, the problem is I was never talking about Mayhem - I was talking about metal scene as a whole.
"Let me go on record saying that I support heavy metal and producing music events has been my whole career. We do strive to work our hardest to keep this Mayhem train rolling and it only works with the support of all of us and I'm apologizing for conveying my deepest concerns on the record." here.
