Ben Bruce: "Danny Worsnop just stopped caring about Asking Alexandria"


Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce recently talked about ex-Asking Alexandria frontman Danny Worsnop. Below you can read some excerpts.


Ben Bruce revealed to Kerrang! magazine: "It was a day that had been inevitable and needed to happen for... I wanna say a few months, but it's probably more like a few years. Danny just stopped caring about Asking Alexandria; his heart wasn't in it anymore. He didn't like screaming, he didn't like heavy music, he didn't like the fans, he didn't like anything to do with Asking Alexandria. And that was apparent for a long time. So, it wasn't a nasty, angry phone call, it was just a much-needed conversation, and it had taken a long time to get to that point."

He continued: "Me and Danny had been best friends for a very long time, but as sad as it is, or was, it was necessary, and I know for certain that Asking Alexandria, myself, Cam, James and Sam are a lot happier now that Danny is not a part of the group. We don't have to worry about someone being in a bad mood all the time, or not turning up to stage on time. It was, like, 'If you don't wanna be here, just don't be here.' We're relieved now. We can all move on and concentrate wholeheartedly on a band that we do still love and care about."

"I was very angry at Danny for a long time. He was my best friend, and I felt like he'd abandoned me. But I felt like he'd abandoned me long before that phone call. I felt like him not caring about Asking Alexandria anymore was him abandoning me and what we'd created together. But there was no anger on the phone. I don't really know what I felt. I'm not sure I felt anything. It was more of an, 'All right, man. See you later, dude,' and that was the end of the phone call. It didn't really hit until it all got publicly released, when it was all, 'I guess this is really happening...'"
