Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix says he's on a "personal revolution" as he continues to live a sober lifestyle.
Shaddix opened up in a recent radio interview, saying he "didn't know how to deal with" his emotions and childhood trauma. He says his struggles with alcoholism and addiction nearly cost his marriage and even his life. Jacoby said, "Trauma, it's real. Trauma affects people in a lot of different ways, and you've gotta find a way to deal with it."
"Am I crazy for wanting peace? Am I crazy for that? Just to go deep on this subject real quick, in order to heal the madness of war, we've gotta start inside with ourselves; it starts with a personal revolution, and so that's what I'm doing, man — I'm on a personal revolution. I'm trying to change myself from the inside out and put myself on the chopping block every day and take a look in the mirror and realize that I know I don't have everything figured out and that some of the things that I believe and that I think aren't always right."
Shaddix has now been clean for more than seven years and hopes to reach others who are struggling with the message that "there's somebody around you that wants to help".
Papa Roach is currently on tour with Asking Alexandria and Bad Wolves on the 'Who Do You Trust?' tour.
