Why would heavy metal ever go away?
Music and songs are written at different periods of time, at different times in your life. They reflect the feelings you have and to be honest, I quite like having positive emotions.
At some point around '94 or '95, 'Rolling Stone' said that guitar rock was dead and that the Chemical Brothers were the future. I think that was the last issue of 'Rolling Stone' I ever bought.
I really don't worry about what people say or what they have to say or what they think - it just doesn't matter.
I think the best riffs and the best songs come when you're jamming and having a good time.
I'm just not a big fan of the too-cool-for-school indie world. Metal bands have never been invited or been able to be part of the cool kids, and I like it that way.
I have enough to think about - I just don't ever want to have to think about my car.
My grandfather was Orthodox, and he was religious, but neither of my parents were. Of course, as they got older, it seems like they get more religious the older they get, even though they're still not practicing Jews.
Even as a kid, if I would come across something cool in the record store, that would be how I found out about bands. It's kind of the same way these days. In a way even less because there are no record stores to go to anymore.
People think of Jews as the Woody Allen stereotype, the nebbishy kind of thing, but that's not the kind of Jews I know. I know plenty of Israelis and plenty of tough guys that are Jewish. So, I think it makes sense that Jews play metal.
I will absolutely say that Johnny Ramone was a huge influence on me. I'm a giant Ramones fan.
I'm not the kind of guy who sits around at home and writes songs. Once in a while I'll pick up a guitar and noodle around, but it's rare.
Nobody gets into a band and thinks they're going to have a 30-year career.
To be honest, I'm one of the least-technical guitar players around. I just want a guitar to feel good and sound good. That's it, period.
To me, the guitar is a tool for songwriting, and it's fun, too. The day that it's not fun, that's when I'm not gonna play guitar anymore.
Everything I do is metal. When I clean my house, it's metal.
I love what I do, somehow I have been able to play in a band for my entire life and that is all I ever wanted to do. I love that I get to do that.
What is it about a zombie that appeals to me? I don't know. Maybe that it's just the most possible - I don't know - of all the supernatural entities.
I kind of live in this weird world where I am exposed to a lot of stuff, but then again I am not exposed to a lot of stuff.
I've always been a true believer that if men had babies, nobody would be trying to tell them what they can and can't do with their bodies.
Frank Zappa... was Beethoven for insane rock guys.
I don't even know who that person was in the '80s. I see pictures of myself from back then and I don't even recognize myself.
Anthrax, it's something that gets you sick, it's horrible, strong. It's a heavy-metal band name if there ever was one.
A guitar for me is pretty much strictly in the context of writing songs for my band, coming up with ideas with my band, and then being able to perform those songs as best as I can on stage - that's what the guitar for me has always been.
I could care less about sitting around and practicing the guitar for hours a day and trying to be the best guitar player on the planet.
