Get Yer Scuttles Out: Coal Chamber

Dave Thompson, Alternative Press, 1999

DEZ SOUNDS genuinely horrified. "You can't do that! I'll be naked!" And, though it probably takes a lot to shock him, the idea of having his picture taken while he's turning into a monkey leaves him speechless. Neither does the monkey seem to happy about it either, perched on a flight case, teeth bared, lips curled, fists clenched... a mini Billy Idol who squawks angrily at anyone who ventures near him. Particularly Dez.
