Perfectionist Machine Gun Kelly – Music News
Machine Gun Kelly is a perfectionist.
Brandon “Slim” Allen, the 32-year-old musician’s close friend and musical collaborator, revealed that Kelly was the “toughest critic” to satisfy when they were putting on a show.
He told Billboard, “Kells is the toughest critic. We’ll have an amazing show, 100,000 people, and he’ll find the one thing that didn’t go well.
Kelly agreed but added, “I also hate perfection. So I don’t know why I get so anal about [everything].”
While Kelly and his band – guitarist Jus Lyons, drummer Rook, bassist Baze and keyboardist Slim – play big venues these days, he used to do anything to get attention. when performing in smaller venues.
He said: “I would strip down and just be in my boxers, and just have this lanky, stupid body. But that made people stop.
And, in addition to performing at the Grammys and headlining Madison Square Garden, Kelly’s career hopes include performing “underwater.”
He said: “I want to play on all seven continents. And then I want to play in the ocean. Like, underwater. I don’t think anyone did.”
