I’ve been looking for an excuse to write about Mike Patton for a while now. He’s probably my favourite music person like… ever. A writer likes nothing better than to write about something he has genuine enthusiasm for, and an article about Mike would be the perfect opportunity to show you that I can occasionally be a nice manny.
In turn, he’s heard my silent plea… and whipped out General Patton.
Yup. Mr Patton brandished his tomahawk on stage at a Faith No More show in Brisbane at the Soundwave festival, waving it in front of a video camera, to the delight of many. Or no one. Who knows. Anyway, all I know is that it’s made me love the guy even more. He truly is peerless. Imagine if Chester Bennington did it at a Linkin Park show. Can you do that? No of course you can’t, because he’s got the charisma of a comedy sock. Patton though, he’s a proper maverick.
