اگه چیزی سردر نیاوردید،به من ربطی نداره چون بایدسردر بیارید.()


Paul Gray -- Slipknot’s Bassist:

It came about as our "anti-image" message. You know, we're not really worried about what cool hairstyle we have or what cool clothes we're wearing. We're about our music first. With the coveralls and the masks it takes the emphasis off of a "cool-guy," "rock-star" image.


We built the band that we wanted to hear. We added members until it sounded right. In the beginning, we had the idea around the three percussionists. We got the two guitar players, bass player, singer. We used sampling, so we got a sampler, and a DJ. We built the band that we wanted to hear and see live. It was all for us. If it was a band that required twenty members, and we thought we needed it... or two members.... We never had any set plan. We just kept doing it until it sounded right.


Well, I'm not really from Des Moines. I'm the only one who is not. I'm from Los Angeles, but I moved to Des Moines nine years ago. I had never really gone anywhere besides LA and Des Moines, so it's amazing. It's the best thing in the world. To get to come to a different country and play your music and actually have people there wanting to see you and hear your music. It's just mind blowing to me. I'm totally thankful to every kid that comes out to see us.


You can only stare at a clown mask so long. After a few minutes it's no big deal anymore. So people start paying attention to the music instead of what the clown is doing, or what he is wearing, or how cool his spikey hair is.

Corey Taylor -- Slipknot’s Vocals:

Yeah, it's a little more. It's our way of becoming more intimate with the music. It's a way for us to become unconscious of who we are and what we do outside of music. It's a way for us to kind of crawl inside it and be able to use it. There's a little aspect of, I guess, our personality in them, but in a way, it's almost like wearing the music. That's the way it is for us. The music for us is so tangible that you can wrap it around yourself and feel safe. You can get inside it and explore it. You know what I mean?

The songs are totally different every night because we are comfortable enough to be able to just do anything we want. It's one of the best things about it.


Basically, I was saying that we don't give a shit about the media; we don't give a shit about the record industry; we don't give a shit about MTV, radio, any of that shit. We play this for us and for the kids who believe in us. They really got behind it.


James Hetfield -- Metallica’s Vocals :

"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."


"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 hated. So you have to be careful."


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


"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?"


"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.'"


"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! "You shit" I shouted. Got him in the gut. And people were going 'huh?'"


Lars Ulrich -- Metallica’s Drumer:

"We've always known that there's been a need or a want for a band like us. We've fought back and broken through all the bullshit of the business, and now it's great to be able to say 'Fuck off' to the whole business, and 'We did it our way' and blah blah blah. We've always had our own way of doing things..."


"We've stuck to our own beliefs, we haven't cheated anyone, and we've done what we wanted."


"We're no different from them (fans). We see the world like other people. We don't live in mansions, and we're not hiding behind fences and making our own pretentious fantasy world with chicks and mountains of drugs. We live in the real world, and the real world's an ugly place."


"Metallica likes to live on the edge, but you can only push it so far."


Kirk Hammett -- Metallica’s lead & rhythm guitars:

"A women should be able to make her own decisions whether or not she should have a baby. She should have control over her body, not the @#$%& government, congressman, or whatever."


"In Denmark while recording Master Of Puppets, we hung out a lot. We'd go out and play poker for 8 hours straight after being up for 24 hours. We'd find a seafood restaurant that was open, eat raw oysters and drink beer, scream at the natives while we were drunk....that's some of my best memories of him."


"One thing that constantly pisses me off is what's happening with the environment nowadays. I'm an environmentalist, though I think I probably create more than my share of noise pollution every time we play."


Jason Newsted -- Metallica’s Bassist_1986-2001:

"It's getting more comfortable for me to offer up ideas to Metallica. James Hetfield especially is really a genius when it comes to writing. It really amazes me sometimes. He can come up with the heaviest, chunking riffs, and then turn around and do something so pretty it makes you tingle. These guys are all the upper sect of classy musicians."


"I eat two hours before we go on and practice for a half hour. I've been walking out in the crowds. I put on my incognito disguise and check out the scene. It's cool to do that, soak up the vibe of the kids. A few recognized me, so I gave 'em passes."


"It's cool, having the control, the last word. It's very comfortable. We've always watched ourselves as far as keeping in shape. We base our whole day around the shows 'cause we want it to be as good as possible."


Jonathan Davis -- KoRn’s Vocals:

Some producers write songs for bands, but we write our own music, so the producer has nothing to do with that.


Videos? Videos are important because millions of people watch TV and we can only tour and play so many places. But if you've got a video, then you're able to air it and millions and millions of people will see it.


Mike Shinoda -- Linkin Park’s Lead Vocals, Keyboard & Piano:

I think that everybody wants to be able to come through on their second album and please themselves and please their fans. We basically worked on an album for 18 months. A lot of albums, we only worked on for two months. I think that because we gave ourselves enough time, we felt comfortable.


Right now, when it comes to making an album, we really want to give our fans just Linkin Park. We don't want to water it down with anything else or confuse it with anything else. Meteora is just us and that's where our focus has been. So hopefully the fans can enjoy that.
