I hate when people are jerks and do that

but yeah Volbeat is one of the only bands I've ever seen personally hand about 95% of the picks and sticks they give to the crowd

Yeah I hated that, It was the pic he used on the song Iced Earth, so it would have been the first one he threw out. Oh well. They will be back, and hopefully in greater numbers.

Andrew from Metal Assault saw my post about this on Facebook and told me pretty much the same thing happened to him about how he supported them since their first US tour, only to be shunned when they got popular. So shitty.

Same thing happened to him with Opeth and Megadeth since their popularity grew over the last few years. Both bands originally gave Metal Assault interviews and press passes no problem, but now that they do arenas and amphitheaters they don't even acknowledge his emails or in Megadeth's case, they straight up cut us off entirely. It really is bullshit, but what can you do? Hopefully your radio show grows big enough to the point where you won't have to deal with this stuff man. Metal Assault (Andrew to a far lesser extent of course, but me definitely) still has some working up to do.

Could also have to do with management, the bigger they get the more other people have to get involved(thus making it harder for interviewing who aren't with major stations or publications)

Wow that really bothers me a lot. You'd think that people would still be there for those who helped them out along the way. But I guess after you hit a certain level it doesn't matter anymore.

Thanks for the kind words man. Right now I am just doing this for the love of music and supporting the bands I care about. And I have made a lot of great connections so far with musicians. I just hope I don't lose any of them if they make it to an Opeth or Megadeth or Volbeat status.

Here is the video version of the Jon Larsen interview.

And the video version of my interview with Jon Schaffer. Sitting On Iced Earth's tour bus was one of the coolest moments ever.

I hate Volbeat so opening up this thread and seeing that these guys are somewhat dicks makes me glad I don't like them. They were literally nobody until fucking Revolver magazine forced them down everybody's throats.

Metallica also helped with that. But yeah, I like the music but it still bothers me a lot. But you can't please everybody. It could have been a bad day for them, they could just be dicks. Regardless, I was nothing but genuinely nice to them.

And if the opportunity arises again, unless Iced Earth is opening again, I will not be there.

Made it onto Blabbermouth for the 3rd time for the Jon Schaffer interview. I also think someone from Blabbermouth started following me on Youtube thanks to this interview. Pretty damn excited about that.
