Tone Deaf published King Buzzo’s top 5 influences and the winner was Thomas Sowell. Jesse from MSTRKRFT is also a big Sowell fan.
“He’s got a severe grasp of reality, he’s a realist, and he’s not taken in by a bunch of ideological bullshit and I love it. I just can’t say enough about him.”
Buzzo is also a huge Ann Coulter fan as is RA the Rugged Man. I have a theory about this: it’s balls. Lots of musicians got into music during the Lemmy days when it was all about “Ain’t No Nice Guy.” Then the indie rock shoegazers came along and castrated the scene. They managed to survive this musical ice age but they still long for the days when you would “Kick out the jams motherfuckers.”
Thomas Sowell doesn’t give a shit what you think and if you have a problem with what he says, he’s happy to explain why you’re wrong. He might not look like Lemmy but he sure does act like him.
