Seether frontman Shaun Morgan says even though he continues to be tormented by the Evanescence track “Call Me When You’re Sober,” he refuses to stoop to ex-girlfriend Amy Lee’s level.
Morgan recently told MTV, “People would say to me, ‘Yeah, man, I know what you’re going through,’ and I was like, ‘No, I don’t think you do.’ Your ex-girlfriend didn’t write a song about you, that millions of people have heard, saying you’re a bad guy. As soon as that happens, buddy, come up and tell me you know what I’m going through.
I was bummed out. I was really upset that she would say and do those things. In any relationship, I don’t think it’s right to say and do those things when people break up, and she obviously felt the need to go out there and make me sound like a complete a–hole. What can I do? I just refuse to lower myself to that level. But it was a painful thing and it got me down — people coming up to me on the street and referring to that song. But I didn’t feel the need to write back and be mean.”
