“We have to look at it as a metal community, or as a rock community, and say, ‘Okay, we wanna pass this music down, because we’re so proud of it.’ All of us that are fans of it love it for a reason. It really hit us usually at a young age, and it really hit a chord with us, and we don’t want it to go away.
“As a fan of the music, and as a fan of all music, I just feel like there’s so many great bands that are out there that we wanna make sure that they get passed down. And we could actually do shows with these bands – AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses — where we can put full lineups together and actually make it happen, and still experience the show.
“When I see the negative responses, not to say I don’t pay mind to them – everyone has a right to an opinion – but I always say that usually an opinion is based on something you’ve seen.
“Like if you had a negative opinion and you went to the show, that’s one thing. Looking at it on YouTube is not the same. And people who are actually judging it – and not to say it’s wrong; they can do whatever they want – but people who are judging it based on the overall idea of it, that I think is wrong, because I think you’re looking at it very selfishly.”
