I will be interviewing IE

I have been given the chance to interview Iced Earth before the show on October 22 for livingformetal.com. This being my first official band interview, I am giving you guys a chance to give me some ideas for some questions. I do not know specifically who I will be interviewing yet, or if I'll be interviewing the whole band! [My guess is I'll be interviewing Jon]

Please remember I will probably not be able to ask everyone's question, but also remember I will try my best [I gotta make room for my questions as well!]

dude, you will not only meet jon, matt, brand, troy and freddie...
you will TALK to them.  
I would give my eye for that chance. I would sell my brother or who ever. I would KILL for......okay lets just say, I would mean the world for me.  Sad

It's hard to form the right question, hm well,
ya know Jon is always at the start with a couple of songs every month. he writes a lot of music, he has so great ideas, where does all this come from and how does he forms it in his mind, what does he do till he got the whole song complete.


Just a suggetsion, for a question, you don't have to use it. If you have better ones, and I'm sure ya do, then just forget this.



you will see him, you will meet him....damn.  

How did you get the chance to do the interview?

You lucky bastard.

If you interview Freddie, ask him how he's adjusting to the band.

To Jon: "Is there a link with the two songs Down Where I Am (D&W), and The Clouding?"

This has been buggin me forever. I must know TEH TRUTH!

No! -.-

It's because what the band (Jon Schaffer) went through at the time!

"This album was written during angry times -- and it shows."

"The title track is a reflection of the troubles they'd had in the past years, and throughout their careers."

Bad memories.

I read all this and I like them to play Burnt Offerings live, but they don't... That's why I like the 1997 concert in Thesalloniki, Grece... Anyway, ask them about that and for the next DVD Wink I read also that they will re-record Glorius Burden and Framming Armageddon with Matt on vocals... Hope they do...

Ask him something that hasn't been asked a million times before.

What's ya favorite color?

@ Vengeance
They wont play things from Burnt Offerings.
Jon says that he doesn't like it,
it was written during hard times.
They'll maybe play Dante's Inferno and Diary but that's pretty much it.

LOL That and the "splatch" question would probably set him off.

Ask about future album ideas, maybe another history album?

I'll ask about future album ideas and interesting stories, but I already told you, I'm not asking him if he wants to arm wrestle! Not only will he kick my ass, I'm no good at it anyway!

Oh, and I found out I am only interviewing Jon.
Feaněs

ha, better ask jon if he wants to arm wrestle, he would probably break your arm...


...and sk him about the next album and when its coming out!

Oh, I never posted an update on this part of the forum, but somewhere on here [probably the Tour section] you'll see that I posted my experience of the Oregon show and that the interview never actually happened.

Fucking tour manager. Oh well. I saw ICED EARTH and that's all that matters
