Tell us more about your pet(s) and their names?

I have a dog named Billy! An 11 year old Boston terrier. He’s awesome! He is pretty expressive and almost acts like a human. He beat cancer and I’m glad he’s still alive!



Have you ever taken your pet on tour?

No, I never took my dog on tour.


Who looks after your pet while on the road?

My girlfriend or sometimes my parents.


What’s your pet’s favorite song or album?

My dog seems to appreciate Black Sabbath just like me. No favorite song. And when I play guitar he just sits down in front of my amp and chills.


How did you introduce your pet to metal?

Metal is playing a lot at home so he didn’t really have a choice. But he always seemed to like it. Sometimes he gets crazy a little bit. It seems to give him energy!


What animal charity means most to you?

Every animal charity! I like animals a lot and it makes me mad when I see people mistreat animals. A lot of species don’t exist anymore because of stupid humanity so every charity who protects them from violence has my vote!
