“They convinced me that my mother was a…”
During a recent episode of Johnny Christ’s show, Drinks With Johnny, the bassist ofavenged sevenfold was joined by his band’s lead singer, Mr. Shadows, and another friend.
Together they reminisced about a hilarious prank the band pulled on Johnny when he first joined the band (early 2000s).
In the video (which you can find below), Christ says: “Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. At one point, there were a few of my best friends who convinced me that my mom was a porn queen… And that was on the internet.”
Mr. Shadows then explains how it all happened: “It was the beginning of the Internet. We created a fake website and wrote a fake biography of Johnny’s mother. He was drunk one evening and we told him that we had discovered his mother’s secret past.
“We opened the website and he was able to type in the name himself. The page came up and it was ‘Leslie Seward, the queen of anal sex’. We wrote a whole story, he read it crying, tears were streaming from his eyes [rires].”
Apparently, guitarist Zacky Vengeance’s brother was a web developer and they teamed up with him to pull the prank.
Christian adds: “I was drunk, and it was the start of the internet… I learned a valuable lesson that day.”
They also explain that Johnny ended up calling his mom to ask about the whole thing, and that his bandmates didn’t stop him from doing so.
Anyway, when their friend asked if they captured the moment with one of their phones, the A7X members reminded him that no one had a phone capable of taking videos in the early 1990s. 2000.
On the other hand, it’s official, Avenged Sevenfold will release their new album in 2023 (the campaign started with a postcard).
