Halestorm: "We love creative haters"


Halestorm's Lzzy Hale and guitarist Joe Hottinger recently interviewed by SpazioRock. You can read some excerpts below.


About online criticism and bad reviews have ever caused them to question what they do and contemplate giving up playing music, Lzzy responded: "Oh, hell no!"

Joe added: "That's the fuel."

Lzzy continued: "If anything, we encourage it. Everyone has a right to their opinion. But we actually get excited about certain people that are so incredibly against what we do, because if… We always talked about this: when we start getting people really passionately hating what we do, that means that we're doing something right."

Joe added: "I love it. I like when they're creative with their hate and really say some descriptive and wrong things. I'm just, like, 'Yeah, buddy! You put some thought into that. Thank you. Thanks for taking the time.'"

Said Lzzy: "We've never, ever even had the notion of... because people aren't gonna like what we do, or maybe this hates us, we've never wanted to give up because of that. That's never even crossed our minds."

Joe offered: "I like what we do, so... whatever."
