No, my first figure was a SLAYER eagle. And the dragons and the tribals are all I have got. I wish that I only
would have done the SLAYER eagle and not the dragons ´coz I like tribals that stand out from a distance. Like you could be a snowblind in the concert and you are still gonna see it. That´s why I like about it.
When something irritates me, I don´t go home and write; I just don´t do that. I write when I have to; I write when the song is done and I deal with the idea and I just go with it and I´ll become what that song is all about until I have finished it. And when you do that, it makes the song more visual, it makes it more like
I don't understand anything about Rick Rubin!(laughs) Yep, it is just that we signed up with him, he puts our records out for us and Sony distributes them so, we just got a good deal going for us.
It is pretty much show up with ideas and work it out yourself. Jeff usually has entire musical songs with drums and everything because he sits around and plays with his drum machine and everything but I am too lazy to do all that shit!(laughs) I just say, "Paul, here is the song, take off!"
