CANNIBAL CORPSE's Corpsegrinder Talks About His Massive Neck
- Posted by RobInjection on November 30, 2012
One of the sights to behold when witnessing Cannibal Corpse live is the massive neck of frontman George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher. The man is built like a pro wrestler, and his wind-mill headbang is unfuckwithable. The man is a beast.
Recently, Metal Hammer UK asked Fisher and his legendary neck and how it got so big:
"Well, it's just from headbanging and lifting weights when I was younger," he said. "My dad had a business where he did painting, roofing and everything, so I'd work with him all day long. After that, we'd go to fishing spots to catch and eat all these fish. Then I'd jog over to my friend's house, who lived about a mile away, and we'd lift weights. If you compare old pictures from when I was in VILE to now, it's obviously grown and the only thing I've really done since is headbanging, which must be fairly similar to weightlifting."
Asked if he has ever had his neck measured, like if he had to get a tuxedo to go to a wedding or something, Fisher said, "Maybe when I got married in '98, but I don't remember and it's bigger now. If you really look at it, it's bigger than the base of my head or where my ears are. A friend of mine once said, 'You don't have a head, you're a neck with lips.' A lot of security guys will come up to me and complain about working out, but having skinny necks, and ask how I do it. I tell them to listen to [SLAYER's] 'Reign In Blood' and headbang the whole way through after working out."
I once interviewed Fisher for SiriusXM Liquid Metal and asked him about his neck, and he said he has to cut out the collar on most shirts so they fit him. He also said he should probably have his neck X-rayed but he fears there might be some damage and he'd have to have surgery, so he's choosing to avoid it.
Either way, there must be so much cartilage built up in his neck that he should be fine.
All hail CORPSEGRINDER'S NECK!!
