My interviewing style and my approach to things is that, yes, it's okay to be sincere; it's okay to be yourself; it's okay to be real.
People tell me all the time I should stop and smell the roses, but I can't. I'm always thinking of what I can do to make what I have better and do more.
Hard rock for me is AC/DC, Def Leppard, Tesla, Kiss. Metal tends to be louder, ruder, darker, like Judas Priest, Slayer, Iron Maiden.
Metal never goes away. It drifts in and out, but the true fans are always there for it.
Guys like Howard Stern, Bill O'Reilly, Jim Rome, Bill Maher, those are the guys I love and respect as broadcasters.
I want to be the Letterman of metal. I want five nights a week, Monday to Friday, 11 to 12, live. I always shoot for the moon.
Jersey gets a bad rap. Most people make an assessment of this state on the ride from Newark Airport into Manhattan.
Metal has always been somewhat marginalized, and I love to prove the perception and stereotypes that go with it wrong.
One thing people would be surprised about is that although hard rock and heavy metal are without question 90% of what I listen to and my passion, there are other things I enjoy. My first ever favorite band in my life before KISS was a power-pop band called The Raspberries.
Black Sabbath invented heavy metal, in my opinion.
I still love physical product. I still hold out for actual CDs, because in radio, everyone just wants to send you a file to play.
VH1 Classic is the destination for people who would be interested in a music talk show.
Years ago, I carved out an identity, and it has always been about having a voice to tell people about stuff I love.
The power chords in 'Come Sail Away' were super heavy to me as a kid. Metal? No. Hard rock? At times, for sure.
I think that, for me, the great books like that, autobiographies, are great when the artists who write them throw caution to the wind and really put it out there as they saw it.
