Avenged Sevenfold Johnny Christ on dealing with pandemic: “It wasn’t that hard for me to cope”


Avenged Sevenfold bassist Johnny Christ was recently interviewed by Matt McGachy on Vox&Hops podcast.

On how he has been dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, he said: “I guess just doing my podcast [‘Drinks With Johnny’] kind of helped me. I’m kind of a big extrovert, so it was kind of tough for me to not be able to go out and do all the things that I wanted to do. But through these Zoom chats, luckily enough, we were able to have technology out there. I mean, it’s been around for a couple of years, but no one really knew about it. But now that we’re using it, it’s been great being able to still stay connected to new people and old friends and things of that nature. So, that’s helped me through. And then, luckily, I have a young son and a wife, and I wasn’t just stuck in a house by myself. A lot of people had it a lot worse. I’ve got a decent-sized house and places where we can go to different rooms and stuff and get creative. Early on, it was a lot of getting blue tape out and setting up obstacle courses for my son around the house and stuff, going in the pool and things like that. So I can’t complain too much, man. It wasn’t that hard for me to cope. The main thing was not being able to get out around people.”
