"I've known them since I was a baby. I think it's a great thing... I don't know, I think they're a little bit of a touchy subject right now with that whole Robert thing. It's weird because we have their old bass player and they have ours. It's very strange. It's weird. But it's going to be a very interesting show."
"It's weird because bands like Metallica and Motley Crue and all that stuff, I've known them since I was a baby. Like they've been in my life. My dad gave Metallica their first big tour and Motley Crue their first big tour, so it's weird. For some reason I always remember Lars talking – he never shuts up, he's always talking… always, always talking. And he never really makes sense but he's always talking. Always. I will never forget the sound of his voice from when I was a kid. Always talking."
"I loved their music video for the one with the swing that goes around. You know which one? I thought that was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. Was it for "Enter Sandman"? It was the coolest video I'd ever seen and to this day I still think it's the best video."
"But I'm not really a big Metallica fan, no offense. Don't really know much about them. Cause when you're a kid and you've been brought up around that you kind of take it for granted."
