Placebo frontman BRIAN MOLKO wasn't fazed by death threats when he first shot to fame - he measured it as sign of success.
The Nancy Boy singer caused a sensation when his band first hit the charts in 1996, mainly due to his androgynous looks and alternative performing style.
Following the release of the band's eponymous debut disc, Molko became a target for stalkers and sickos sent him scary death threats, but he insists he saw the negative attention as a sign he'd made it.
He tells Kerrang! magazine, "I have been stalked for the past 15 years and, in fact, I'm being stalked right now. For me, that's as good a barometer of success as anything!
"Around the time of the first album, I was getting death threats on my answering machine. That's when I knew we had properly arrived. The fact that we had inspired someone to actually make the effort to call me up and say, 'I know where you live motherf**ker and I'm gonna cut you up,' that's when you know you're doing something right."
