FFDP’s Memphis Debacle Was Actually A Good Thing

Remember that horrendously awkward video that surfaced where the members of Five Finger Death Punch walked off stage due to singer Ivan Moody’s drunken behavior?  It sounds like that incident actually did the band a world of good.

Guitarist Zoltan Bathory told Kerrang! Magazine that, “For the longest time, the stage was sacred.  After that incident in Memphis, though, we looked at him like, ‘Dude, you’ve drawn a sword in a church! This is absolutely not okay!’  I was pissed…When this got in the spotlight, Ivan got better rapidly.  It put him in a position where the whole world was watching him.”

If this is what it took for Moody to get a grasp on his alcohol issue, we’re glad it happened this way, as opposed to a far more grisly and tragic circumstance.
