What is it with him and the occult?

Does anyone know if he actually worships Satan or is this some kind of joke?

Re: What is it with him and the occult?

On his birthday post he said he was "still witchy." I think he's probably some sort of riff on wiccan which has nothing to do with Satan, but it's a common misconception by Christians that it does... It's likely a tongue in cheek joke. But it could also be a reference to early Black Metal, they're all Odinnists now, but before that, they were some-time satanists.

Pretty common knowledge that Satan will improve your musical skills if you become friends with her. I figure Ryan is trying to create some mystery and intrigue by implying that he is involved with Satan in that fashion.

Re: What is it with him and the occult?

Just finished writing an MA Thesis on representations of Satan in Am. lit., so will try to withhold the huge spiel... But I mean, come on. Even if you ARE working with just a lazy read of the New Testament, Paradise Lost, and Inferno, Satan is patron of authorship, defiance, and skepticism; he exalts the body and the mortal condition; exalts criticism and questioning rather than blind obedience. He is FREEDOM - and its consequence. He's 'Murica, baby. Ideologically: what's not to like for a songwriter/author/artist?

Someone mentioned after seeing him live recently that his guitar skills seem to have improved. Hmm...

Not just in American Lit, but British Lit too -- in Milton's "Paradise Lost" Satan is the most intriguing and fully developed character.

One of the best books ever written about rock n roll is Greil Marcus' "Mystery Train." In the chapter on Robert Johnson, Marcus writers about those who heard Robert Johnson and how they felt that Johnson sold his soul to the Devil to play and sing in the compelling way he did.

"Crossroads" is in one sense about facing the point where you have pay the Devil his due.

Re: What is it with him and the occult?

Ryan described himself as a pagan on Twitter a while ago. Now, having researched paganism extensively by watching The Wickerman ( both versions) and every episode of Occult Killers on Netflix, I have concerns.
