Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop Responded To Claims Of Him Being Rude To Fans

I usually don’t bother with bands such as these, i’m not huge into post-hardcore (or any core related metal for that matter) although i have listened to Asking Alexandria and others on a rare occasion. I’m mostly into melodic death metal, death metal and black metal. But after hearing a fan’s awful experience it bugs me that Danny couldn’t be a bit nicer to his fanbase.

Q: Do you appreciate your fans support & all?

A: Lots of people seem to think I hate our fans and don’t appreciate them at all. I really do. Our fans are awesome and I owe them everything I have. I just have a different way of showing. I’ve never been the people to sit and hang out with a group of people. I like my own space, I like being with just a couple of people that I know in my own little world. I have an antisocial disorder and I like to stay in my comfort zone. People never realize it and assume I’m an asshole.

Q&A with Danny Worsnop regarding the rumours, the stories and his all round bad reputation

I don’t know whether or not this guy realizes but when you have a fairly large fanbase it is disrespectful to push them away. It’s ok if you want to have your space you don’t need to spend hours on end talking to your fans, although it would be nice to get to know some of the people who appreciate and help your success. It’s sort of a two way street and in the end if you simply push them away it won’t help your image any. Some musicians are really cool and laid back people. Take Nergal (Adam) from Behemoth, a somewhat of a satanic band (or perceived as such), the guy seems brutal and mean on stage but i have heard great things about how he treats his fanbase.

I’ve met Jonny Santos from Spineshank (didn’t get to talk to him much mostly said hey and got to shake his hand) and hung out with Fear Factory a bit, i think i talked to one of the drummers (during the Archeype tour) and overall they are really cool laid back people. But upon hearing how Danny treats his fanbase, it’s nearly the opposite from my experiences. Now i’m not saying that Danny should change, although he needs to change on his own. I understand he’s anti-social, but even when i was like that i still wasn’t really.. i’m just really nice and i still am although still very introverted. I wasn’t really gabbing off with the Fear Factory band although, Burton chuckled when there was some metalcore or deathcore band screaming at the top of their lungs. Someone mentioned something about, “i wonder how long he’ll have his vocals for”. Burton was preoccupied with the History or Animal channel. It was definitely a cool experience but at the same time, the band was really cool to all the fans that were flocking in and out (which wasn’t much, but still..).

But as a fan, you gotta prepare yourself to be disappointed. In fact it’s best to not really be so preoccupied with when meeting the band that you gotta hug them or shake their hand or try to be friends with them. In any case don’t set your mind to one thing and one thing only and you won’t be disappointed. Not everyone is as nice as the other person and the whole lesson here is appreciate the bands that do show their appreciation and don’t be too bothered by those who don’t show it.

So is Danny Worsnop disrespectful/rude to fans? In a way yes, his attitude does show and fans can see it. Whether or not he thinks that is really up to him and it’s up to him to change.

I could list the other reasons why i do not date or am in a relationship which more often times i get asked, “are you with anyone?” which i already find annoying. It’s one thing to ask about sports, music or what movies i like but to ask if i date or if i “have someone” for me it’s personal so it’s quite annoying when people ask this question and it’s mainly those who i don’t really know and this usually happens at work or i am at a gathering. But whatever, i usually tell them i don’t have anyone and not looking for anyone. But it does get old. I also have had the attempted setup which usually isn’t a setup it’s mostly “do you like that girl?” and i even had my parents try to set me up with someone from their church despite the fact i have never even seen this person (the ill fated blind date), in which i turned down.. 3x actually like my parents must have alzheimers or something. It’s not that i am not interested in women, i am but with certain life changes and experiences i have put my foot down and declared that i just won’t get into a relationship with anyone. The biggest reason would be kids, i really don’t want any especially with the ever increasing transgender acceptance without realizing there is still a huge amount of violence against transgenders and including violent transgenders.

Besides the practically mandatory if your child is transgender you need to let them transition that is seemingly sweeping our country and the idea of having a kid learn about this ideology behind it shows that it may be better not to have children. So that’s not on my list of stuff to do or even want to do. This world is already on thin ground already and you always start with a strong foundation. But besides that in the world of dating transgender women already would like for straight biological males to stop being homophobic or transphobic, Men do not want to date transgenders

Transgender dating dilemma

And transgenders do not seem to understand this. They first go on saying that transgender women don’t want to date biological men but then go on saying that biological men have a fetish with transgender women and then wonder why men don’t want to date transgender women. It’s like these people are confused, duh. I’m not and i don’t want to date someone who was once a male. I only like and am interested in biological women who are not confused about their gender. You can call this whatever you want and while yes transgenders are in the minority, it’s still a problem on this world. No way to differentiate men from women anymore because a few people have declared they are not the gender they believe they are. And the biggest problem is there is no way to tell, even in a Christian group there are some Christians accepting of transgenders. But until transgenders are legitimately cured (transitioning doesn’t count), no gender dysphoria i’m going to hold off on dealing with relationships or dating. I don’t actively refuse being in a relationship but at the same time, since i’m a man/male it’s way easier to not get involved in a relationship with anyone, despite getting some encouragement from others which i generally turn down it’s really not hard. Most men struggle with this but i guess with everything with my life experiences it’s really not a struggle to deal with.
