Sometimes I was like Beavis and Butt-head growing up. I know people who lit their friend's house on fire accidentally.
Al Gore wanted to tell people what they could listen to and what they couldn't, what they could record. It was basically coming down to the idea that he wouldn't let anybody record any music that he didn't think you should be doing. There was going to be an organization that would tell you what you could and couldn't record.
It really annoys me when the light turns green, and you're behind somebody, and they're just sitting there looking at the light for about 15, 20 seconds.
I always want to do - take everything and take it to the next step. I don't want to just keep doing something the same ol' thing. Obviously, I could have wrote 'Mother' 20 times and made tons of money and be playing gigantic arenas and whatever, but that's not really what I want to do.
I like being out onstage in front of everybody, getting that energy and giving that energy. Hopefully I am making them forget about all their problems in the world. For however many hours they are at our show, hopefully they are going to have a great time, and it makes life a little more bearable for everybody involved.
I like Bill Murray a real lot. I like Andy Kaufman.
Although I have been pretty vocal about hating touring, the only part of touring I don't like is being on the bus and bouncing around.
David Bowie's death came out of the blue, as did Prince's.
I like the original Metallica version they did on 'Garage Days' - 'Last Caress' and 'Green Hell.'
We're doing Circle of Snakes, we open up with Skin Carver and we are throwing in Skull Forest later on.
We're one of the only bands that get censored for theological commentary.
However you feel about Dimebag, this is one of the most influential metal guitar players of the '90s. I was just talking to someone that I am hiring to bring on the tour who said that, when he was at the funeral, that Eddie Van Halen came and put his striped guitar in the coffin. That's a pretty big deal.
It's not like that anymore really, but back in the day, nobody would let the Misfits open up for them, not the Ramones, not the Cramps, nobody.
Comics are a dying art. If you ask a little kid to choose between a video game with insane graphics or comic books... you have to compete with cable, satellite TV with its thousands of channels, and with video games that are like movies, with CGI explosions where you can blow up worlds.
The occult - what do you mean, Jesus? That's occult to me. It's so far-fetched, it's ridiculous.
My view on Democrats is that they're fascists disguised as liberals, or liberal moderates. You're not allowed to say anything they don't agree with. You're not allowed to do anything.
I'm just saying that at least for the foreseeable future there won't be any more touring.
It started getting too crazy with 'Earth A.D.' The concepts started becoming too brutal and violent. It was less about fiction and more about the real world, the past, present, and future. I think a lot of people got freaked out by that.
I'm a big Fred Armisen fan.
Some of the best sing-along stuff you'll ever hear is Gary Glitter.
