It's scary to look out and see couples hugging during that song. Oh fuck, I thought this was a Metallica show.

Some guy was bowing to me at the Marguee the other night, seriously! And I was shouting at him, 'Stop it - let me buy you a beer.'

It's all fun and games 'till someone loses an eye, then it's just fun you can't see

There's a lot of people there just because 'Ooh play Enter Sandman.' So we play it first to get the fucking thing out of the way. So they have to sit through the rest of the shit! They gotta hear the old shit. You gotta use it against 'em y'know?

INFOOn 3 reasons why James said that his Black Sabbath record was important
First it scared the shit out of me. Second, it crushed the fuck out of all the peace'n'love'n everything's groovy bullshit that was still hanging around in the early seventies. And third, my friends' moms wouldn't let them own it!

I'd like to have a beer-holder on my guitar like they have on boats.

I remember back when I stood in line for 3 hours waiting for autographs, and when the star just hopped into his limo, and took off, I'd think 'You dick, I hate you.' I'd go home, rip down all his posters...

I remember this guy (Cliff) lit my couch on fire a couple of times

Knowing Cliff's attitude, he'd kick our butt's if we quit.

People probably thought 'Oh, they're not going to do the heavy lyrics now because of what happened.' Man, those lyrics mean a lot more to me now.

Authority pisses me off. I think everyone should be able to drink and get loud whenever they want.

I'd rather regret doing something than not doing something.

You've gotta keep fit to play that hard every night. Better order five more beers.


THANKSanonymous

The first time I played sober was because I just forgot to drink. 'Damn' I thought...'I'm playing better.'


THANKSanonymous

I love my job, play softball and have a great life. Things are a hell of a lot better now than when I was 21.


THANKSanonymous

People were throwing shoes at us in SF and LA. I don't know why. It's like 'You guys are great. Here's my shoe.' People must have been walking around with one shoe.


THANKSanonymous

We do this basically for ourselves. People appreciate it, which is cool, but I think they appreciate that we're doing it for ourselves. We're doing it our way, and how people like it is not up to us. We like it.


THANKSanonymous

We don't plan concepts. We didn't write RIDE THE LIGHTNING about death, or MASTER OF PUPPETS about manipulation. That just happens.


THANKSanonymous

I sit there and I go 'Oh God, what am I gonna write?' and all of a sudden, it happens. The first line's down and all hell flows after that.

When people start copying your style, you know that something must be happening.

INFOOn AIDS
This shit (AIDS) scares me. You know, one time and you're dead! Touring is the dangerous part. A lot of bands are going to be in trouble the way they carry on. I mean, we've been pretty bad, but on the last tour, no way! It was kinda, 'Screw that!' Some of the roadies are pretty sick, as far as wearing rubbers or whatever. I don't know. I've never done that before...ha ha ha...and that's only MAYBE safe. It's very unhappening, this whole thing.


THANKSanonymous

My family went to the LA show. It was kinda weird. I hadn't seen 'em in quite a while. They liked it. They just wish I'd call more often.


THANKSanonymous

I like a women who's got some balls, some strength. As long as I can beat her at arm wrestling, that's fine.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
You can pick up a very shitty song to cover. I mean, the Foo Fighters doing 'Baker Street'? I don't get that at all. It does take me back to high school, I guess, or at least to a song that I completely fucking hated. So you have to be careful.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
Budgie and Mercyful Fate were also pretty inventive. Fate would play a great riff and never come back to it, and it would piss you off.

I guess there was some thought put into it; I mean, at least they rhymed.

I would spend days just going through Lars' record collection, taping over my REO Speedwagon cassettes with bands like Angel Witch and Diamond Head and Motörhead. I was in heaven at his house.

When it got to the part where the first Pharaoh's son is taken and the fog rolls in, Cliff said,


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
My dad was always one of these 'Cut your hair!' kind of guys. My mom was more open to things. She painted a lot. She kinda reminded me of a Berkeley mom. She wasn't alive for any of my success with Metallica. It really pisses me off. But you know, I think she knows what's going on still.

INFOOn people showing up at his place
I just walk out with the gun and say 'Hey!'. Oh yeah, I'm a meanie. I send my dogs after 'em... No, actually, I just tell 'em, 'This is my house and...leave me alone, okay'


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
We can do whatever the fuck we want, really. We've got carte blanche. I mean, when we did 'Fade to Black', that was our first ballad and it really blew a few minds out there. People wrote us off then; 'Fuck them! It's over. It's no longer speed metal.' Okay, fine. You can feel that way. But fuck you, too.


THANKSanonymous

INFOOn Ted Nugent and hunting
Ted's pretty intense, put it that way. I love hunting; I love getting away and the quiet part of it all. I think he's a little opposite of that. Whack 'em and stack 'em, ya know?

INFOOn Marianne Faithful
You know, she's quite a character, and I love that. She could sit and tell stories for days. But she's a very, very elegant and pleasant woman, very 'been there, done that.' You could learn alot from that.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
INFOOn married life
You know, it's not as different as I thought, which is kind of disappointing. But it's fine. Everyone said, 'Oh, your life is going to be totally different,' and it's the same. Which is good, in a way.


THANKSanonymous

We discovered how much money influences certain things and discovered how things work in the United States. How things might seem okay on the outside, but internally, they're corrupt.

Call it anarchy or whatever you want to--there's times when you wanna be able to do whatever the fuck you want and, y'know, life's always short, so why shouldn't you?

I like Danzig from the Misfits. He can sing real good.


THANKSanonymous

My older stepbrother, David, was kind of a hippie, kind of a hairy guy. He went to college and stuff. He played drums in a band, and I used to go bash on the shit.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
I was in a band called Obsession. And then there was another band called Leather Charm. Then I met Lars.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
If I'm hung over, I'd rather just stand on the side and play. We wanted to get a frontman but no one sang good enough so I just did both.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
Back then (in highschool) you'd look under the music section of The Recycler for heavy metal, and there's like two people. The same people every fuckin week into 'sex and Motorhead.'


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
I was pretty quiet as a child. I kind of hung out with my family and listened to music and shit. I wasn't too outgoing at all.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
(On first jam with Lars) He had a fucked up, hella fuckin cheap Gemco kit or whatever. We told him, 'Yeah, we'll give you a call,' and we never even called him back!


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
In the early days, when we were playing clubs around LA, people didn't understand what we were about. 'Oh,' they'd think, 'a God-damned punk band,' and they'd throw chairs at us.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
I remember the first time we ever got an encore. It was a Monday night at two in the morning at the Troubadour and there was about ten people there but they were clapping and we came back for the encore. We were deciding on what song we were going to play and Lars starts up a different song! He just decided he wanted to play. And we hadn't practiced that song for like three months. I had forgot all the lyrics, but I went through the motions. And after the gig, I just turned right around and punched him out onstage!

We'd record a song that people liked and wanted to hear on the radio, and the radio wouldn't play it because it was too long. Or they wanted to edit it, which we wouldn't allow.

I don't remember doing anything else; I don't remember not living in the studio. I'm itching for people to hear this album because I'm sick of hearing it myself.


THANKSMegara999@hotmail.com
DATE1992
Lars was always nervous on stage, so he'd play faster and faster. Nobody wanted to wimp out and tell him that he was playing too fast. We just figured, 'Hell, we'll just play faster too.'

Definitely, the harp player. We met him at the first rehearsal, and we knew he was into our music when he rolled up sleeves and there were a bunch of tattoos. He introduced himself, 'Hi I'm the harpist,' and we were like, 'Get the fuck outta here! You're one of the stage hands.'

Well, without getting really political, I think there have always been people who have been afraid of music and its potential for, I guess, social breakouts, or whatever you want to call it. You know, young kids are looking for something to grasp onto, whatever it may be. When you're that age, there's a lot of that feeling of needing to belong, whether it's wearing black lipstick and cutting the ass out of your pants, or whatever -- people are looking for things to grasp onto.

Guys relate to their moms, I think, a bit better than their fathers. When you're singing about Mom, it's like...what are you gonna say when you're getting into a fight with some guy. You say: 'Hey! Your fucking mom blew me!' That hits home, it's a little deeper, gets you a little more upset. Hur, hur.
