Just Megadeth and Overkill at Gigantour.

I'm really pissed that I lost that cunnlingus photo.

Lee Dorrian (Cathedral)
Tom Fischer, Martin Eric Ain & Franco Sesa (Celtic Frost)
Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation)
Cristina Scabbia & Andrea Ferro (Lacuna Coil)
Daniel Adair & Ryan Peake (Nickelback)
Tony McAlpine
Billy Sheehan
John Corabi
Bruce Kulick
Stacey Blades (L.A. Guns)

All for interviews, not counting the ones I did on the phone, obviously. I hate when people use the term "met" for getting autographs or grabbing photos etc. When you bump into one of them in a bar and have a chat, you met them. When you just stalked them outside the venue and barely exchanged any words, you didn't.

Actually, barring Lee Dorrian, it was the best one I ever did face to face. Tom was definitely pulling the whole disinterested-miserable-bastard bit to begin with, but once I showed him I knew some shit and got him a little worked up, he was great.

Franco the same. Eric is NOTHING like you'd imagine a member of Celtic Frost. Very jolly chap. Great fun.

Exactly what did you ask Tom that got him "worked up?"

Finances got him going a bit, then talking about influences. Not his, but his on other bands.

You can't quite get the emotion from just reading it, but:

“If I tell you some of my influences you will never see the music of Celtic Frost in them. If I tell you I used to listen to David Bowie and Roxy Music as a kid, and maybe a little bit of Black Sabbath, that doesn’t make the sound of Celtic Frost. But it’s the aura, the approach and the chemistry, the magic that has inspired me, and I think it’s probably the same with these bands. Opeth is a good example. I’ve talked to Mikael of Opeth at length at the Wacken festival, and he told me a million times “you’re an influence”, and I just said “that cannot be, you’re like a genius musician, I’m not. I’m exactly the opposite”. And he told me it was the vibe and the ideas that inspired him, and the approach of Celtic Frost. As a matter of fact, if a band sounds exactly like Celtic Frost and they say we’re an influence, that’s not true, because they’ve just copied us. Inspiration and influence is something that on top of that gives you the energy to create your own thing. It gives you the fire and the adrenaline, that’s an inspiration. A lot of people mistake copying for an influence. It’s not the same thing.”

That's a nice statement.
