Talking with Blabbermouth, Asking Alexandria’s guitarist Ben Bruce shared his thoughts on the topic of all the sexual misconduct allegations in the music scene.
“You have to wonder what’s true and what’s not true. Some of these guys made mistakes, and some of them [are] forgivable, some of them [are] not so forgivable, you know what I mean? But it’s the circle of life. To me, it’s like… I don’t know. It’s just a weird time.
“You just don’t know what to believe and what not to believe. Even things like [comedian] Louis C.K. and stuff, stuff coming out now about him. I don’t know how to feel about it. I don’t know him personally. Is he actually a nice guy that made mistakes, or is he an asshole and deserves it? There’s no way of knowing. So I just try to stay out of it. It’s kind of the nature of the beast. A few years ago, it was this that got the whole world going crazy, now it’s this. What will be next year or in two years’ time? There’s just no way of knowing. So you just kind of wait and see.”
Bruce continued on about the artists he knows who have been accused of misconduct:
“Have they ever done anything to me? No. So I’m not gonna sit here and pass judgment. I don’t know the story. I’m not them, I’m not in their shoes, so it’s not my place.”
