Staind / Saint Asonia Guitarist Mike Mushok Plays ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’
This week's episode of 'Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?' features Staind / Saint Asonia guitarist Mike Mushok. Watch the multiplatinum rocker prove and disprove what's on his various Wikipedia pages in the video above!
There's 20 years of Staind history to go through, so Wikipedia gave us plenty of stuff to sort out. First off, Mushok corrects the post that only three cassette copies of Staind's debut album, Tormented, are known to exist. The guitarist also spoke of the album's apparent concept of an individual's decision to commit suicide.
One of the most legendary Staind stories occurs in Hartford, Conn., where Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst attempted to get Staind kicked off the bill due to their Tormented album cover. What began as tumultuous turned into a lucrative partnership, as Mushok describes in this Wiki segment.
Mike Mushok also took part in former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted's most recent band, Newsted. Despite much fanfare, Jason shut the project down suddenly, so we got Mushok's take on the situation in this clip above.
