#Quote
1 [on the Judas Priest 2011 tour] As far as having the 'Spinal Tap' accoutrement - the Harley, the smoke, the fire, the lasers, the costumes - it's full-on 'Spinal Tap' times 12.
2 My iPod is with me wherever I go. My iPod is all over the place - it's got Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, Wagner, and then it goes into Slayer, Emperor, everything by Sabbath, everything by Queen, Tool, Pantera. I could just go on and on. I'm just a chameleon when it comes to music - all kind of music touch my senses.
3 There are two kinds of music - heavy metal and all the crap they play on radio and show on MTV.
