When a fan jumps on stage and doesn’t jump off, what do you do?

USUALLY NOTHING UNLESS THEY GET TOO CLOSE.

Have you ever injured a fan while performing?

NO

Have you ever thought about what would happen if you accidentally killed a fan while performing?

NO. AS LONG AS I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THIS MUSIC, IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN “ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK” SITUATION BECAUSE ACCIDENTS DO HAPPEN.

What are your thoughts on the Randy Blythe case?

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE SECURITY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. RANDY WAS JUST DOING HIS THING; SECURITY SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING THEIRS. BASED ON HOW MANY TIMES THEIR FAN GOT ON STAGE, SECURITY WASN’T TOO CONCERNED. I DON’T KNOW THE FULL STORY, BUT I DID HEAR THAT BEFORE PASSING, THE INJURED FAN HAD NO INTEREST IN PRESSING CHARGES.

Will you tour in the Czech Republic in the future?

IN LESS THAN A WEEK. WE’LL FIND AN ANCIENT PIECE OF WOOD TO KNOCK ON BEFORE ENTERING; NOT BECAUSE OF THE FANS, BUT THE FOLKS IN CHARGE..THATS THE ONES YOU GOTTA WATCH.

Anything you’d like to add?

SENDING ALL GOOD VIBE AND LUCK FROM TO RANDY FROM HIS BRETHREN IN NEW ORLEANS!
