Every politician, in order to be a politician, has to be adept at the art of one and one thing only, and that is lying.
One of the degrees I have is in business, and I was a healthcare administrator that ran a 365-bed skilled nursing facility for years and generated several million dollars a year profit for them. So I have a background in business.
When you record and tour year after year without a break, it starts to feel like you're on an assembly line.
I'm pretty much done with political commentary. I've said everything I could possibly say. I've been a big mouth for long enough.
Oh, I'm going to raise him on Black Sabbath and Metallica and football and MMA and all things that should matter for a young boy, and discipline and strength and honor and courage and everything that I would hope to instill within my son.
The first record I ever bought was Kiss's 'Destroyer.' And those classic bands like Black Sabbath were my first loves.
What makes something pop? It's really just the bed it's placed in. If I grab melodies by Black Sabbath or Metallica and take them out of their musical bed and put them into a pop context, it's not like they wouldn't translate.
The fans who know us, and me in particular, know the type of people we are. I like the finer things. We've gone through our McDonald's and Burger King phase.
I think that, in my humble opinion, that the world is divided, and the media has a very good, a very predictable habit of emphasizing whatever will keep people clicking.
The way I sing is extremely physical, and it was causing acid from my stomach to wash up to my vocal cords and burn them.
I have a real estate development company. I have investments in all sorts of things, and I dabble all over the place.
'Fade To Black' - just this amazing construct: a song that defied the definition of what Metallica was perceived to be at the time.
'Creeping Death' - that was a special song for me as a kid, because that was the one that every single Jewish kid thought, 'Oh, Metallica wrote a song for us. He wrote it about the exodus of the Jews from Egypt under slavery.'
I love 'The Exorcist.'
There's everybody in the world who is always trying, time and time again, to proclaim the death of rock, or hard rock and heavy metal. Not if I have anything to do with it, not if we have anything to do with it.
The God's honest truth is that, being the singer, my body's my instrument.
It used to be that, whenever I walked around without my old piercings, that I was very rarely recognized - it wasn't a common thing; I could be somewhat incognito.
I in no way, shape, or form envision myself as the modern-day Ozzy Osbourne - nobody can.
I'm a fan of Genesis prior to Phil Collins. I don't really like Phil.
We had a master sergeant present us with the Bronze Star of Valor he had gotten because he had felt we were the eighth men of the platoon.
