Andrew Sullivan has a great excerpt from an interview with John Schaffer of the heavy metal band Iced Earth. John is being interviewed by some lefty Canadian who just doesn't have a clue. His responses show a much greater understanding of reality than you would otherwise image arock star to have.
By The Way. . .Iced Earth is the band Tim "Ripper" Owens joined after leaving Judas Priest to make way for Rob Halford's return. Ripper, as you are probably aware, was a Judas Priest cover band singer who was hired by Priest when Rob Halford left. The movie Rock Star was based upon his story - though they changed the facts quite a bit.
