In a new interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF radio station, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH frontman Ivan Moody spoke recently becoming a grandfather at the age of 40.
Asked how it felt to be a grandpa, Moody replied: “Oh my God. Am I? It’s fantastic, man. I call it legend versus legacy, my man, and it’s really what you leave behind. And to know that my kids are coming to an age when they’re having their own kids….
He continued: Let me take that back. This is the weirdest part: my youngest [daughter] is seven years old, so she’s an aunt. I’m just, like, ‘How does this even f*cking happen?’ You know what I mean? It’s cool, brother. I really dig it, but at the same time, not still willing to accept the ‘grandpa’ term yet.”
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH released its latest album, F8, on February 28. The follow-up to 2018’s And Justice For None caps a turbulent period for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH in which Moody finally got sober after a near-fatal struggle with addiction, while co-founding drummer Jeremy Spencer bowed out of the band due to physical issues.
