Phil Demmel Says He's "Not Allowed" To Do Press For MACHINE HEAD Anymore
If you've watched a Machine Head interview in the last few years, it's highly likely that you were watching an interview with frontman Robb Flynn.
It seems some people have been asking guitarist Phil Demmel to do interviews and he has been rejecting them. He took to Twitter earlier today to explain why he doesn't do interviews.
Thanks to all who inquire, but I’m not allowed to do press for Machine Head. Please contact Mgmt.

"Thanks to all who inquire," says Phil "but I’m not allowed to do press for Machine Head. Please contact [management]."
ThePRP notes that Demmel posted a now-deleted comment to his Instagram page that he was tired of having to repeatedly turn down requests and that the policy was in place for some time now. Well, he certainly might not get any requests but you know Robb Flynn is going to be asked about this soon enough
Things were much different a decade ago, when I had the opportunity to chat with Phil backstage at the now, sadly, defunct Mayhem Fest.
