An Interview with

'Sin Quirin'

Guitarist of Ministry & Society 1

that took place at Loaded Bar, West Hollywood on Sunday, July 24th, 2014.

Interviewed by Glenn Milligan and OZZFestAmy.

Glenn: So I’m sat here with Sin from Ministry & Society 1 among many other bands to his name. So Sin, how did you get into music in the first place?

Sin: Well the first introduction for me in wanting to play was.. I was six years old and my cousin brought over the Kiss Alive record and at that point I realised that this is what I wanted to do. We couldn’t afford a guitar when I was six so I had to wait until I was about nine or ten years old and at that point my parents got me a guitar which was like 25 bucks then. I took basic guitar lessons and by the end of that first year of basic guitar lessons I was showing my teacher like Jimi Hendrix songs and sh*t like that and he was like, “I’m pretty much done with you, you need to move on”, and that was it man. I just played guitar. I was obsessed and I’ve been obsessed with it since then. I started playing in my little garage bands when I was like 13/14 – in talent shows in school and then I started to do the local Hollywood sort of circuit when I was about 19. The first place I played on Hollywood was The Whisky and here I am.

Glenn: So what led to you playing the Whisky, was it Society 1 or some band like that?

Sin: The first time?

Glenn: Yeah.

Sin: Oh the very first time I was in a band called Rampage and I remember, I was 19 years old so that was many ago. We had graduated from playing backyard parties to Hollywood and our first club was The Whisky.

Glenn: Awesome.

Sin: Yep.

Glenn: What sort of stuff were you playing in that band and what do you remember from that show as well?

Sin: Man – chaos, anxiety, joy, nerves, everything. We always were sort of just like a traditional kind of metal. Sort of along the lines of like an Armoured Saint – that kinda stuff. Just sort of like that LA Metal kinda sound.

Glenn: It’s funny that I saw you last Tuesday because last Tuesday was like an anniversary to play.

Sin: Well it was for Matt (Zane) – it was like his 20 year to the month that he had played there or was it 25 years? It was a good show. I had fun that night.

Glenn: So how did you make that move from Rampage to Society 1?

Sin: Well it went from… I’ll tell you the progression. It went from Rampage to Tactics which was a thrash metal band in LA. Tactics turned into Electric Head and Electric Head used to play shows with Static X, with Coal Chamber, with System Of A Down and we used to play The Coconut Teaszer all the time with those bands. Out of Electric Head we also used play with Society 1 and that’s how I met those guys. When Electric Head was falling apart I just sort of made the transition into Society 1. When I auditioned for them they actually needed more of a keyboardist that could double on guitar and I guess I faked it long enough on keyboards that I got the gig and then the next thing you know we are on tour. We played from like Wichita to Ozzfest. It was crazy and then from there that rollercoaster started.

Glenn: So how long had you been playing keyboards prior to that?

Sin: A few months. (We laugh). A true story. A true story. A few months.

Glenn: So what made you want to play keyboards when you were a guitarist?

Sin: Well I was heavenly already into a band called Ministry. So when I heard what they were doing I was heavily influenced by them and I wanted to start bringing that to my band – that was when I was in Electric Head. The guys in Electric Head.. We weren’t really seeing eye to eye with the direction of the music because I was starting to bring electronics and keyboards and stuff like that. So that’s how I picked up the keyboards and why I picked up the keyboards and thank god that I did because it helped with all these things later on in my career.

Glenn: What was it about the Industrial style of Metal that really grabbed you?

Sin: Well you know it felt like a breath of frsh air to me. My heart’s always been in rock and metal – it’s what I grew up listening to but when I heard industrial, when I heard Ministry, when I first heard like ‘The Land Of Rape And Honey’ and stuff like that I was like, ‘Holy Sh*t’. It was like a new take on metal because they were putting metal in there but it didn’t sound like the traditional metal that I was used to. So that peaked my interest and I always liked, believe it or not, I’ve always been a fan of disco – 70’s disco and funk and RNB. So I’ve always liked the keyboard element in music and liked those kinds of rhythms and beats. So all of those things combined I think got me excited about industrial.

Glenn: You played Download a few years ago and what I remember was that Matt was like suspended from the roof and that really stole the show in my opinion for that festival. What do you remember of that major show?

Sin: That was a major show I’ll tell ya. That was the biggest crowd we had played in front of until that day and that was the last show of our European Tour that year in 2005 and I remember, I had like an outer body experience that day on stage. I’d heard about stuff like that before but I never really believed it. But that day, while I was playing – there were about 35 – 40,000 people and I remember being on stage playing and I’m doing my thing and I’m looking at the crowd but it almost like I stopped and in my mind I was watching a movie only in rewind. So I’m watching it going really, really fast and then it got to like… it stopped like where I was born and then it started to go forward really fast and all these like key moments of my life would just kinda flash. Then it literally felt like I was flying down and I landed in my body and then I was like back into playing. That’s exactly what happened that day and I’ll never forget that and that’s the only time that I’ve felt that. But it was a memorable gig and it meant a lot to us because we were a band that everybody said, “We were never gonna make it, we were never get out of LA” - we did. “We were never gonna get signed” – we did. “ We were never gonna tour, we were never gonna get endorsed, we’re never gonna…”. We ended up on MTV, we ended up on VH1, we ended up in Revolver, Guitar World, Spin, Rolling Stone – all those magazines. So it sort of accommodated at that gig, playing on the main stage with Slayer, Slipknot, System Of A Down and it was a record breaking thing that Matt did to suspend at that whole show. So yeah, it was a big gig.

Right now, we’re in talks, I can’t say too much about it but we’re in talks of going back to Download next year for the ten year anniversary of that show.

Glenn: Nice.

Sin: Yeah.

Glenn: What stood out from that European Tour because you’ve come all the way from LA to doing a big tour like that? It must have blown your mind to play those European shows?

Sin: It did. That was actually our second European Tour.

Glenn: Right.

Sin: The first one we were on tour with Godhead and that was in 2004 and then in 2005 we were out with Paradise Lost and that’s who we ended the Download Festival with. Yeah man, it was, you know, for a kid from LA to be in like the South of France and Prague and like all these places for the first time – your mind is blown and you are just like, ‘What the f*ck man?’. It’s like, I just played a guitar and then the guitar is what got me all these places. It’s a trip to think about it like that. That like and the love for an instrument enabled me to go to all these places and see places I never thought in a million years I would get to see. So it’s a pretty like magical thing.

Glenn: What places had the biggest effect on you and why did they?

Sin: Man there’s so many places. Poland, believe it or not. Probably because that’s the biggest crowd I have ever played in front of. We played in front of… this is just two years ago… we played in front of half a million people. 500,000 people and we hit the stage – the Poland Woodstock Festival (Przystanek). Just to see how music and how the band or a band (performs). I’m not even taking credit for just us but just how powerful music is and how it affects other people. Like here are people, here we are out here playing our stuff in our living room or whatever and then it ends up on a record and it ends up like halfway around the world, then you’ve got 500,000 people out there just chanting and singing along to something you wrote. I mean, it’s a powerful thing and I think in Poland, they’re so appreciative. Not just in Poland but that place really affected me because I saw people crying and it was definitely a moment there. It was like, another area was Russia as well. It was the first time Ministry had played in Russia - two years ago. We did Moscow and St. Petersburg and that was the first time for me where getting to an airport and there being hundreds of kids waiting for us at the airport, hundreds of kids waiting for us at the hotel, the train station , jumping on our bus… They really were all around the bus – like not letting us move because they don’t want us to leave. It was scary - crazy. I’ve been to Europe now four times I think.

Glenn: So Ministry are a band that you really looked up to and you liked the style of Industrial Metal. That must have been pretty f*ck*ng mind-blowing to get the job as guitarist in Ministry and with Al Jourgensen like that?

Sin: Yeah it is. It’s still weird to me. I mean, I’ve been in the band now 9 years, almost ten years and I was such a fan and I’m still a fan that it’s still odd to me sometimes. There are times when I’m in the studio and I say this story all the time but it’s true. I’ll be sitting in the studio and I’ll be writing a song with Al and I’m sitting there and I’m ripping on something or whatever or listening to a playback and Al will turn to me and he will be like, “What do you think we should do here?”, and I look at him like, “You’re asking me?”, I’m like, “Dude you’re Al Jourgensen Man!”, and you know it just doesn’t hit me. Like it doesn’t register sometimes that I’m his co-writer. I’m the guy that writes his music, you know what I mean?

It’s still weird to me man and it happened a lot on stage two years ago especially with Mikey, Rest In Peace, who, you know, there were times where I was like, like in Poland for instance it happened. We’re up on stage and we’re doing a song like ‘Psalm 69’ and I’m standing there and I walk over to stage right with Mikey and so I’m riffing along to this like classic song that I always wanted to play live. So I’m standing there playing and stood right to my left, right up against my shoulder and then Al is right next to him and I’m just like playing but I’m looking at these guys that I idolised and looked up to for years and like I had goosebumps and chills because I was….. I swear to God. I still get goosebumps telling that story because.. how weird, like how surreal, like how lucky am I to be able to do something like that. You know what I mean? You know how many people can say that their dream like really came true and are living it? You know what I mean? Like I don’t take that for granted and I’ll never forget that and I’ll never forget where I came from and I’m like the luckiest guy in the world man to be able to do that. So those moments happen a lot to me with this band.

Glenn: What would you say your proudest moments have been either in the studio or on the stage with Ministry and why?

Sin: Man there’ve been many. Probably the first one would probably be the first time that I was in the studio with Al. I had just flown into El Paso and he picked me up at the airport, took me right to the studio and he was like, “You ready to do a solo?” and I was like, “For sure”, and I hadn’t heard the song yet. So I put my guitar down, he played it for me twice and he’s like, “You ready?”, and I was like, “Yeah!”. I plug in and I f*ck*n’ let a solo rip and he was like, “F*ck*n’ Awesome! – Perfect!", and it was like the first take. I was like, “No, no, no man, let me do it again”, and he was like, “No, no, no”, he’s like, “That was f*ck*n’ perfect”, and it was like I was begging like to do it again and I got to do it again but he was like, “We’re gonna keep the first one anyway”, so he goes, “I’ll let you do it again” and that ended up on the record and that’s in song called ‘Die In A Crash’ that was on the first Ministry record that I did that was called ‘The Last Sucker’. When I went into that record I was hoping that one of my riffs would make the album right? Just a riff or something. I ended up writing half that album. I ended up playing guitar on that whole record. I even played bass on that album. So that’s probably my proudest moment because it was the first one. So there’ve been many after that but you know, the first time that sh*t happens, the first times you experience those things – they stand out.

Then live the gig that stands out to me is that Poland show because everything – like all the stars and planets lined up for that gig and it was just unbelievable. I mean all the guys were there. Mikey was there and we got to do that show with him and it went off amazingly well.

You know the more I think about it, I could be here for hours talking about those moments. I played… Me and Al played the Hollywood Bowl here with Cheap Trick. Man, we did two sold out nights with Cheap Trick. It was the 40th Anniversary of The Beatles ‘Sgnt Pepper's’ album and so they asked me and Al to come out do a song with them and we did ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’ and we did my version of a song that was my arrangement that I did in the studio that we sent out to the guys in Cheap Trick that we sent out to the orchestra. So we were sitting in Burbank with the full orchestra, all the guys in Cheap Trick and that was my hometown gig. So that gig… those gigs mean a lot to me because, you know, it wasn’t that long ago that I was playing the f*ck*ng Coconut Teaszer in front of like 15 people and now here I am with over 18,000 people each night at the Hollywood Bowl. So stuff like that always stands out. Without a doubt.

Glenn: What songs would you say looking back on your career with Ministry or any band whatsoever would you say you are most proud of and recording and why?

Sin: Probably right now today I would say a song called ‘Let’s Go’ that I wrote for Ministry and that ended up being the lead track on Ministry’s ‘The Last Sucker’ Record and it ended being our opening song during the ‘2008 CU LA Tour’. So that song really means a lot to me and the fans are always saying that that’s one of their favourite Ministry songs. They include that with ‘Psalm 69’ and ‘Just One Fix’ and they throw in ‘Let’s Go’ in their and I’m like, ‘’F*ck – that’s like some serious company that that song is in their with’. So yeah.

Glenn: So what classic Ministry songs mean the most to you before you were a member and why?

Sin: I’d probably have to go to ‘Just One Fix’. Ministry songs I heard before that record but that one to me really epitomises that industrial sound. When bands or people talk about an industrial song or something like that or an industrial band or something, to me that’s the epitomy of that genre. So for that reason, I think that song probably means the most to me.

Glenn: Cool. What’s happening right now with Ministry?

Sin: There are a lot of things. We are planning our World Tour for 2015 and it’s gonna start January or February of 2015 and we’re gonna do the States, Europe, Japan, Australia, South America and Mexico. Next month in August we start actually looking at the routing.

Glenn: I understand you were nominated for a Grammy twice?

Sin: Yeah.

Glenn: What were you nominated for and how did it make you feel being nominated for an accolade as big as that?

Sin: Weird. It’s something I never expected. We were nominated in the ‘Best Metal Performance’ Category – twice. The band’s been nominated six times and I’ve been nominated twice with them. The first year I was nominated we lost to Metallica. The second time we lost to Judas Priest. So it’s still weird to me. You never think you are gonna get nominated. I never in a million years thought I would be at the f*ck*ng Grammys – you know what I mean, like peeing next to Tony Bennett in a stall – like you know? That’s a true story.

Glenn: What are your favourite road stories that you can talk about?

Sin: Like being on stage or not on stage?

Glenn: Both.

Sin: Being on stage. I’ll tell you one that sticks out to me. We were playing in Spain at the Bilboa Festival and were on the main stage and the headliners are us and Judas Priest. So now the next day, Kiss are headlining. So we do our set and I go back, I’m walking toward the backstage area and I meet this female friend there and she’s native from Spain – blonde – you would think she was from Southern California. A kinda Britney Spears looking chick all in leather. So her and I become friends and she’s joining me now towards the backstage area. While we’re walking we see another girl who comes up to me and joins us backstage as well. So now I’m in a booth just like this (one at Loaded Bar) and I got the blonde here (on the left) and the brunettes over here (on the right).

I’m sitting there and we’re in the big sort of like communal area and there’s a door over there and Eric Singer comes in from Kiss and then Tommy Thayer comes in. Eric sees me and he walks over, shakes my hand and he’s like, “Hey Man”, he sits down, Tommy Thayer comes over, shakes my hand, he sits down and now it’s me, Tommy Eric and these two chicks right? And so, Eric leans into me and he like holds my hand and goes. “Hey Man”, he goes, “Be careful with your chicks because Gene’s about to walk in”, Right? So right as he says that, Gene comes through the f*ck*ng door and he just stands there and he’s like surveying the whole room and he zeros in on the chicks right? And he zeros in on the blonde – he likes blondes with big boobs. He’s staring right at her and he looks at me and he kinda like does one of these (puts on a wild expression) and he comes over, he says “Hello”, he sits down. So now I’m sitting there with like three of the guys in Kiss right and these two girls.

At that moment, the guys from Priest come out of their dressing room because they’re about to walk towards the stage. So now, Rob Halford comes out, KK Downing comes out – he was still in the band at the time. Now KK stops like a few feet away from me and he turns and he sees me sitting there, he walks over and he’s got his guitar and everything. He walks over and he goes, “Hey mate, you were brilliant tonight”. I was like looking like, ‘You talking to me?’ and he starts laughing and goes, “Yeah man, you were brilliant!”. I said, “Did you watch the set?”, and he said, “Well I was watching you on the monitors back here”, he said, “Your tone was totally just crushing tonight”. I was like, ‘What the f…”. I couldn’t believe it. I mean, KK Downing from Judas Priest to compliment me while I’m sitting with the guys from Kiss. So that’s a big tour story.

Glenn: Do you have like a ritual that revs you up ready to get up there on stage before a show?

Sin: To be honest with you, I don’t really have a ritual. I just kinda and I know this is really weird and it’s maybe a little unorthadox as a guitar player but I usually don’t warm up. I usually just go right out on stage and I’m just f*ck*ng ready to do it – just ready to go. There have been some times where I’ve warmed up a little but for the most part I’m usually like pacing around and I can’t wait to get on the stage. Like the bigger the crowd, the better and the more comfortable I feel. Like when it’s like a little thing like this (at Loaded Bar guesting with Kuza) it’s harder for me actually than a bigger crowd.

Glenn: So what collaborations are you working on right now?

Sin: Right now there’s a band called ‘KP Riot Brigade’ that I’m actually doing a solo for. I’ve already recorded one solo for them – a really good industrial band. There’s another band called ‘The New Therum’ that I also recorded some guitar stuff for and I shot their video last week actually. They’re very like new wave 80’s kind of thing – very almost like Gary Numan’ish – very new wave – 80’s new wave – very good. I’m working with Society 1 and that’s pretty much it man. We’ve got some not new Ministry stuff but new stuff with Al in other words.

Glenn: What was it like for you being on stage again with Society 1 again? That must have been pretty awesome for you.

Sin: Amazing. It feels like I never left like I was never gone. As soon as I got back with the guys it was completely natural. I mean, there is so much history with those guys – Me and Matt and Dirt. Man, we go back to 1999. So there’s a lot of history, a lot of love there. It doesn’t feel like nine years has gone by to be honest with you. It really doesn’t. So it feels completely natural.

Glenn: It was just like picking up from the last time you were all last on stage?

Sin: Yes. Absolutely.

Glenn: How would describe the guitar playing of Sin Quirin?

Sin: Definitely… I’m a 70’s based guitar player. There’s gotta be a lot of feel, a lot of style, aggression that’s needed but a lot of heart. I take from the 70’s guys. Like I don’t really do, like I’m not a sweep player – I don’t do that stuff. Like my hat is off to those guys. There are great technical players out there right now. They can play circles around me but it’s just not my thing. It’s just not the era I grew up in. I grew up in the Ace Frehley’s, the Jimmy Page’s, the Hendrix’s – like that’s where I come from. So that’s in a way, if you listen to my playing.. even with Ministry – the leads that I do and sh*t like that. Here is this modern industrial sh*t but if you listen to my solos and stuff like that, I bring that 70’s vibe to it. Al actually really loves that and he actually compliments me on that all the time and he loves that I do that kinda sh*t.

Glenn: What would you say is the difference and also similarities of working with Ministry and Society 1?

Sin: A lot more alcohol in Ministry. A lot more things that make for hotel rooms with Ministry than with Society 1. It’s totally different. It’s completely different. With Society 1, it’s tough to say man. There’s some similarities but it’s different. Just a different way of approaching songs and writing and the way we do it. Two totally different camps.

Glenn: Yeah?

Sin: Yeah. Equally as satisfying and as often but just completely different.

Glenn: So if you had a chance to be on stage or have a studio session with, who would that be and why and what would you like to perform with them? Either your own material, their material or whatever?

Sin: Ace Frehley. We’ve played with him. I mean on the same bill, the same festivals and sh*t like that. It would be Frehley and I ould love to do one of his songs. I wouldn’t want to do one of mine. I would love to do f*ck*n’ ‘Rip It Out’ or ‘Rocket Ride’ – you know, something like that.

Glenn: So what you like to do regarding hobbies and interests that the fans wouldn’t realise you were into?

Sin: As far as music?

Glenn: Well also outside of music?

Sin: Well with music, like I said earlier, not a lot of people know that I listen to a lot of 70’s disco. I listen to a lot of like 50’s and 60’s rock ‘n’ roll, doo-wop, r’n’b, funk and that’s to be honest with you if you were to get in my car and my i-pod came on it would probably be on something like ‘Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons’ right now.

OZZFestAmy: You are scaring me to death!

Sin: Yeah. The stuff I play is probably the stuff I listen to the least in my off time. So I’m sure that a lot of people think that I’m just like Metal all the time which that is my love but when I’m not doing it, man it’s an array of different things.

Glenn: And I guess such things influence you sub-consciously?

Sin: Well I think that’s why I’m able to do stuff like when I’ve written Revolting Cocks records. I mean, I had to do like funk songs and disco songs and like hardcore electronic songs and I think that is because of how I listen to all this stuff and I listen open-minded to things. So if I was a close-minded person and just listened to Metal I don’t know that I could step out and write some of those other like Revolting Cock songs. Like I’ve done stuff with ‘Lords Of Acid’ and sh*t like that.

Glenn: What do you like to do outside of music?

Sin: I don’t do too much. I mean, when I’m not doing music, I’m… and this is gonna sound real rock ‘n’ roll, I like hanging out with my Mom. My Mom is my best friend and my biggest fan and my family. I don’t have brothers and sisters but I’ve cousins and they were always very supportive and still are. The family thing is very big with me. So I like spending time with my family and I have one or two very good friends that I consider like my best friends and I like hanging out with them and going to dinner, restaurants – I like going to restaurants. Just kinda taking it easy. I really don’t like go out much. I really don’t do clubs much. You can probably count on one hand the times I have been to the Rainbow – on one hand and I was born and raised in LA. So I’m not a partier, I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I don’t do drugs. I never have in my life. So yeah – I’m pretty boring.

Glenn: That’s why you look so well then.

Sin: Hey, you know what, I think I look okay for 45. I haven’t hit the wall quite yet.

Glenn: If the Sin Quirin of now could go back to when he first started and talk to the young Sin Quirin, what advice would you give to the young Sin Quirin?

Sin: Definitely learn the business earlier. The actual business aspect of it. I hate to say this but not be as trusting or as nice to as many people because people are just out to f*ck*ng take you to the cleaners in this biz. So that would probably be the thing I would advise the young version of me.

Glenn: How would you say the differences are from when you first started in the music business?

Sin: Oh totally different man. I mean, just five years ago and ten years ago – forget it. When I first started it was completely different. It’s like the internet has helped as it has hurt as the same time. There’s pro’s and cons to it man. You know, there are great things about it. There are things that I tell bands now to utilise and to like make the best of. We didn’t have social media which now you can have fans all over the world like that. We did it old school with flyers and tried to f*ck*n’ get people to come down to your gig like the old fashioned way. We used to pit sh*t on f*ck*n’ posts and sh*t on lampposts and all that stuff. Totally different man and I also think that people’s attention spans are now almost non-existent. I think that maybe people stuck around with bands a lot longer before. Now there’s so much at their fingertips immediately that I think they are onto the next thing right away. So people are very fickled now and it’s a totally different business now man and there’s no money in it anymore. There’s no money in selling records because everybody steals everything. Now the only money we can make is on tour and that’s why bands do all these VIP Packages and all this stuff because they are trying to make money because nobody makes money when they release a record anymore. Unless you’re f*ck*ng Jay Z or that kind sh*t. But a band like Ministry that would have been a gold-platinum, gold selling act 20 years ago – now it’s like non-existent.

Glenn: Is there anything you’d like to mention that we’ve not covered or talked about yet?

Sin: I’m actually working on a movie towards the end of this year called ‘The Bridge – The Movie’ and it stars Joe Elliot from Def Leppard, Ricky Warwick from Black Star Riders/Thin Lizzy/The Almighty, Eddie Ojeda from Twisted Sister, Joey Santiago from The Pixies and a bunch of other people. I’m really excited about that. It’s the first time that I’ll be in a movie. Like an actual, major motion picture and I’m not gonna be playing a musician.

Glenn: What are you playing?

Sin: I can’t say what I’m playing yet but it’s a big surprise and it’s totally not what people expect. But I’m very excited about that. That’s really big for me. Everybody involved in this movie is really cool. They are very excited to have me on board and that will be out next year. It’s called ‘The Bridge – The Movie’. Then I’ve got another big thing. I’ve got a signature series guitar. I’m announcing a signature series Schecter Sin guitar that’ll come out in January. It’ll be unveiled at NAMM. So yeah, I’m super excited about that. I always wanted a signature series guitar and it’s the first one for me and very excited.

OZZFestAmy: I think the song ‘Punch In The Face’ is amazing.

Sin: I appreciate that. That’s the first song I had written for that record.

OZZFestAmy: I love it.

Sin: I actually wrote that song 3 years ago and I had it sort of sitting around for another project that I had and when it was time to go out and do this record I went out there and I was like, “Man this song would be a perfect f*ck*ng Ministry song”. I already had it sort of laid out. So I just sort of pre-recorded it really fast and I wrote the solo there in the studio and there are videos of me writing this solo on youtube and there’s a making of ‘From Beer To Eternity’.

OZZFestAmy: Yes.

Sin: You can actually watch me writing this f*ck*ng solo which I’m very proud of.

OZZFestAmy: It’s amazing.

Sin: Thank you. I’m very proud of that song.

OZZFestAmy: It’s so very good.

Sin: Thank you.

OZZFestAmy: I think I was inspired by your show, ‘Sin & Sanaz’ on TRadioV. I’m gonna start my own internet radio. It inspired me.

Sin: Awesome. I was proud of it. I thought we had some good moments on that show.

OZZFestAmy: It was hilarious.

Sin: We actually.. I can’t say too much about this but we’re developing right now another show. I can’t say the name right now but it’s gonna involve Al, me and another person. It’s not gonna be a radio show but we’re in development right now with an actual network to do this thing and it’s gonna be f*ck*ng hilarious if it goes through. So it’s gonna be f*ck*ng ridiculous.

OZZFestAmy: You are like brothers in arms you and Al. Totally.

Sin: Me and Al and this other guy. We are gonna sort of be like the regulars on it. It’s gonna be out of this world man. People are gonna freak out when they see this sh*t and it’s gonna be awesome. Unscripted, doing what we do best which is just talk and having a f*ck*ng great time.

OZZFestAmy: Thank you very much for the entertainment.

Sin: My pleasure. It’s what I do.

Glenn: What would you like to say to all the fans who are reading this interview?

Sin: A huge thanks to everyone in… and I say this all the time. I truly appreciate everyone that takes the time to read one of my interviews, watch one of my interviews to like give a sh*t about what I’m doing. It really means a lot to me. I always go back to… I remember what it was like when I was first starting out and it really means so much to me when somebody actually cares about what I’m doing, the bands that I’m doing stuff with, what I’ve got going on. You know, it really means a lot so always a huge thanks to everybody that’s been a fan and that’s been supporting me this whole ride.

Glenn: Thanks so much it’s been a good interview.

Sin: Thank you, thank you. I appreciate it and you asked some good questions.

Glenn: Thanks.

Special thanks go to OZZFestAmy for arranging the Interview & also taking the pictures of me with Sin'; the Staff at Loaded Hollywood and of course Sin Quirin himself for the excellent words!
