King Diamond Bought a Corvette with Metallica Royalties

There is no question that the immortal King Diamond has experienced a prosperous profession, but during a latest job interview he disclosed that Metallica‘s love of his tunes landed him a sweet new sports activities car or truck.

For the duration of a latest job interview with Enable There Be Talk’s Dan Delray, King Diamond exposed that Metallica’s 1998 recording of their Mercyful Destiny medley for Garage Inc. in the beginning resulted in a rather great payday.

“Right when [Garage Inc.] arrived out, yeah, it was pleasant. I received a Corvette out of it at the time. I bought a black Corvette at the time that I could not have gotten normally. I experienced a Trans Am I offered that and got a Corvette. So, that was the initial effect at the time.

“Now, it is, like, I guess if they do anything particular with it or no matter what, then it does some thing, but that’s not what I stay off, I can tell you that. The same… I did a thing with Volbeat the track that I did 50 percent the lyric for [‘Room 24’, taken from the band’s 2014 LP Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies] and it was nominated for a Grammy.”

Could you imagine staying the dude who finished up shopping for that Trans Am? I critically hope he was a metalhead.

In any case, these days King Diamond suggests the “Mercyful Fate” medley is even now netting him some Metallica royalties, although it’s not what it utilized to be.

“But it’s not like… I can not take in off of it I just cannot pay back lease or anything at all off it. But which is our possess stuff that is undertaking fairly well now our own things is doing [well]. The tours are carrying out superior. There’s much more initiatives likely on all the time.”

Mercyful Destiny will be hitting the highway afterwards this month for their very first slate of shows in the U.S. in 20 several years. Although they will not be touring to aid a new album until eventually soon after King Diamond does, that doesn’t imply there is no new new music that could potentially make the setlist. The band’s been playing a new tune termed “The Jackal of Salzburg” considering the fact that this previous June. Here’s hoping we’ll listen to additional new songs on this up coming operate of dates!
