“Kirk’s an amazing lead player with a great lead sound, and I wish I could play like him, but I can’t. So I become the best rhythm player I can.
And being the singer, I love melody. Michael Schenker is probably one of my favorite guitar players as far as melody goes. All of the kind of dual harmony things are things that I do in the studio, and Kirk comes in and does the solo stuff.
He also talked about Lars Ulrich:
“Lars [Ulrich] and I have been married for 35 years [laughs]; you get to know each other pretty well. We’re brothers that hate each other, love each other, can’t stand each other.”
