I was probably a year and a half old.
Why Did You Start Playing Music:
What made it happen, is I've
always been around music. Music is my life.
First Record You Bought:
'Paranoid' by Black Sabbath.
Five Favourite Albums:
I can't answer that.
Hmm... it's pretty interesting because you've
asked me a lot of questions that are not that important to me. I'm not
really a materialist, I mean, I love the various things I have. I love
my guitars, I have a nice weapons collection. I don't have 'one'
The Ultimate Death Metal Band:
You already have that within
I have a lot of heroes. Bach would be the biggest.

mind their own business.

I'm doing that daily.
I wanna write great music. I want to share it with people. I want to
share the human experience.
Favourite Star Wars Character:
Well, I would have to say Luke
Skywalker. I mean, the obvious answer would be Darth Vader, but he
didn't show me anything, and Luke came from nothing and made something
happen. So it's not necessarily what side he's on, it's the fact that he
came from nothing and went so far.
