“Some of the bands that we’ve been out on the road with have been huge influences on me. I’ve still got the Iron Maiden live at Donnington VHS.
"I went from being a kid with that VHS tape to fast forward to playing on the same stage as them, it’s amazing. They’ve got a stage full of guitarists [Adrian Smith, Janick Gers and Dave Murray] too, it’s always funny trying to work out which one of them is in the PA, ‘Hey, which one am I hearing?!’
"I think it depends which side you stand on. I think they must move it around in the mix a lot. I love Maiden and I love that they have that many guitarists. To me it’s just, ‘Wow, he’s doing a solo, he’s doing a solo, he’s doing a solo,’ I just can’t get enough. I love the riff from Sanctuary, I love that.”
