I Apologize by Five Finger Death Punch: in search of the missing musicians
We want to celebrate Halloween 2018 with a review of a thrilling video: I Apologize by Five Finger Death Punch, which is part of the 2016 album “Got your six”. The setting makes us drop in the atmosphere of the 31th October’s party: we are in Angelus Rosedale Cemetery in Los Angeles, at dusk and with the fog.
A journey among the great musicians struck by alcohol and drugs
The singer Ivan Moody is dressed in black and very elegant; he has a shovel and walks through the graves. Meet a first tomb on which is written the name of the singer Janis Joplin (1943-1970). Another shows the name of Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970). Another tomb is that of Lemmy Kilmister (1945-2015) and above the name there is the symbol of the pikes, which is its symbol; Lemmy is the founder of Motorhead and disappeared in 2015 at the age of 70.
Another tomb has the name of Scott Weiland (1967-2015), American singer of Stone Temple Pilots and also died in 2015. Then we meet the tomb of John Bonham (1948-1980), drummer of Led Zeppelin, and of Layne Staley (1967-2002), singer of Alice in Chains. We see the tomb of Amy Winehouse (1983-2011) and that of Sid Vicious (1957-1979), the drummer of Sex Pistols.
We could not miss Kurt Cobain (1967-1994) and Elvis Presley (1935-1977), in front of which Ivan Moody toasted with a small bottle of alcohol. Finally Bon Scott (1946-1980), singer of AC / DC.
Ivan Moody digs his grave
Suddenly we see a noose hanging from a tree: Ivan Moody looks at it, but does not want to commit suicide and goes on to a chapel with the name of Jim Morrison (1943-171), inside which there are several niches. Ivan Moody seems to go crazy, leaves the chapel and starts digging a huge hole. While he is inside the grave, he looks up and sees a plaque with his name and his date of birth, which is 1980, but without the date of his death.
The meaning of I Apologize by Five Finger Death Punch
Ivan Moody throws the bottle of alcohol into the pit. All the artists we saw in the cemetery died of alcohol and drugs. Ivan hopes not to make the end of those artists: he is trying to fight against the demon of addiction. Throwing away the bottle means continuing to live and make music for his fans!
