****ing weird ass lady too, that Otep Shamaya.. We had backstage passes and went to visit with them after the show and she just locked herself in the bathroom screaming and crying the whole time.. I forget the bass players name "Evil something" - but he apologized for her behavior and said that the tour was tearing her apart.. We got his autograph and took a photo and that was that.
Yeah, I cruised youtube for a bit watching those guys. After seeing a couple of docs, she certainly plays the "tortured artist" role up. Maybe for her it's not a role anymore. Eh, whatever. Love her voice and a bunch of their songs.
