With the year coming to a close, The Gauntlet has contacted some of our favorite bands to recap their year and let us know whats in store for 2011. Brandon from Across the Sun has checked in.
New Year’s resolution?
To kick that pesky meth habit! Haha, uh, I mean to keep losing weight and get more fit!
Most memorable metal news item of 2010?
Soundgarden reunion, Adam "Nergal" Darski (Behemoth) hospitalized for Leukemia, Death of Ronnie James Dio, Paul Gray, and Peter Steele.
Plans for the holidays?
Definitely a lot of family time. That is what I miss most when I'm on tour is spending time with my family and closest friends. And my giant, amazing, king-sized, Tempurpedic bed!
What’s on your ipod?
I actually gave my ipod to a crippled lady who had hers stolen from her while at work. But when I had it, you would find a wide array of music. From Pantera to Josh Groban, After The Burial to the Beatles, and Scar Symmetry to Boys II Men. I had it all!
If you could bring back one musician from the grave for a day, who and why?
I would bring back "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. He is one of my heroes and a huge inspiration on my musical life. I would bring him back to tell him how much I love him and drink black toothed grin's til we blacked out. R.I.P. Dime, I love and miss you more than words.
