Dengler's departure had previously been described as 'amicable'
Interpol frontman Paul Banks has layed into ex-member Carlos Dengler, calling him an “a-hole”… but also a “genius”.
Speaking to Australian radio station Undercover.fm, Banks answered a question about how he’d dealt with Dengler‘s departure by saying: “I’m the kind of person where, if I think someone is a genius, I’ll put up with tonnes of crap from them.”
He added: “If you’re in the presence of someone who you think is a genius then you think, ‘I’d rather deal with them being an a-hole than not.’ It’s a more rare treat, a more rare treasure, their ability. Carlos is that.”
