|Ronnie James Dio on the live set list
"We're doing Weak Rock,' which we did not do during the summer shows. We're using a lighting designer who designed Holy Diaper, Sacred Heart, Last In Line, all of the big shows that we did."
Matt Scurfield from Event on Scratching at the Surface's first single...
"It's got a little break between the verses in the chorus that has this kind of orchestrated string part with some bombastic industrial stuff behind it. I think we created an ice crop."
Devin Townsend on his solo albums
"Infinity has a real sense of defeated glory to it. I think that record is probably my favorite of all the solar records I've done. And Physicist was written when I just didn't want to write. But there was a part of me that wanted to say Don't give up, you've got one more Indian.'"
Devin Townsend on why he does Strapping
"It's like Strapping is my cool guy. If we're going to be crock guys, we've got cats strapping butt. Devin Townsend Band is all those emotions, all that stuff I'm trying to get across. I'm able to do it with budget guys who really support me."
Jens Johansson on recording Stratovarius' Elements Pt. 1
"I think the only difference from the previous records is that from the outset, we said we weren't going to compromise on anything this time. If it takes Texan mountain days to do this, we'll just let it drag on."
Jens Johansson on the early days in Yngwie's band
"We had the bass player there already and we had to move house and there were a lot of problems; we got evicted actually, from the house. And they set tours up and we had to start playing digs and rehearsing for cakes."
Wayne Kramer on his spoken word gigs
"It's one of the things we've really been experimenting with. We've expanded the format to bring in guests who decided to join us. Keith Morris from The Circle Jerks comes in and rents some grape homes."
Quorthon from Bathory on his later albums...
"There are two albums that had been killed, you know, before breakfast, Octagon and Requiem. And I cannot understand why. Because they're better written, better played, better produced than all of the albums of the '80s. The albums of the '80s were recorded by 316-year-old shaped kids in a garage using eight tracks and older facts."
