  • Quotes

    • Brian: (about being approached by Relapse Records to reissue his album) They got it. Even though they had never done comedy before, they had an idea about how they were going to get this record out there. They've been kicking ass. It's been a dream to see me reviewed in metal magazines. It's so cool. I'm doing an interview with Kerrang soon.

    • Brian: (about being in Rob Zombie's film The Devil's Rejects) My scenes were with (Bill) Mosely and (Sheri) Moon, who were fucking amazing, and Geoffrey Lewis (Eastwood's sidekick) and Priscilla Barnes (the third blonde on Three's Company). I was surrounded by real actors and I'm such a fucking lucky clown.

    • Brian: (about comic book titles he follows) I always read The Walking Dead. I love Civil War, where that's going. The reveal (by Spider-Man of his secret identity to the rest of the world) kinda scared me. It was kinda weird. But I always have a three or four issue rule with a new series. I love the new Ed Brubaker Daredevil.

    • Brian: (about if he feels typecast as the same roles) I've played weird mail boys, surly convenience store clerks and slightly retarded people. All over the map, I'd say. What other roles am I gonna get? I'm fine playing weird guys that work at menial jobs. I want to start doing it in dramas.

    • Brian: If you had told me in 1984 that I was going to shoot a video with Anthrax in twenty years, I would have kicked you in your dick and pushed you back into your time machine.
