“I love Dokken, and I’ve always loved horror movies, so here’s a dream combination. They did this song from one of the Nightmare On Elm Street Movies, which was pretty good, as I recall.
“The song kicks ass, so that’s why I’m choosing it. When I got the album that it was on [Under Lock And Key], I was a little let down, though. I was a fan of hair metal, and what I liked about Dokken was that they were more of a shred band – George Lynch was a very serious guitar technician. The album wasn’t so shreddy, so I was like, 'OK... '
“Lynch changed my view of the guitar. When he went off, when he went crazy, he took it in all directions. It sounded like 1,000 wizards playing the guitar at once – and they were all awesome.”
