Emmure’s Frankie Palmeri On His Controversial Past: “My 20’s Were Just Crazy”


Emmure frontman Frankie Palmeri believes that his days of generating controversy may be behind him. Speaking recently on an episode of the ‘Pants OFF! Podcast‘, he was asked why he thought that he was often singled out by various metal and rock websites over the years, to which he replied:

“I’ll say in all fairness I’ve made it very easy over the years to make myself a target. Growing up, growing older or whatever… My 20’s were just crazy… the world got experience it under a microscope, me losing my mind.

I look back on that like ‘Ahh god’, I’m not that dude… and that to me is good because if I’m not a fan of who I was yesterday, I must be going in the right direction.

In fairness I think that’s a big part of it. I think that that eventually evolved into being safe territory. Where like, it doesn’t even matter at this point.

They could just make—I wouldn’t say twist and turn things—but they can pretty much anything, expand it however they want and people are going to be ‘ahh, it makes sense.’ They’re doing their job and I’m doing mine, that’s how I look at it.”
