“Kerrang!” – July, 2000 // Chino Interviewed

Chino Moreno interviewed by “KERRANG!”
July, 2000


Chino: There’s a lot of our bootleg stuff on the internet”, Chino says.
“And I’m not completely upset by it. We would use it to our advantage.
When I was growing up, I loved to find underground stuff. I still do.
Some bands get bummed out because they don’t make any money from it.
But the only people who buy that stuff are true fans of your music.
It’s not like Metallica need any more money. I don’t know why this
should make them angry. People want free songs, but they also want
the full package.”

(But now Metallica drummer, Lars Ulrich, came up with this)
“I read Kerrang every week and saw that idiot from the Deftones saying
shit about me, Is that the best argument people can come up with?”

Later Chino came up with some kind of “peace act”.

Chino: Metallica were the best, too, when I heard “Master of Puppets”
I was tripping out and the “…And Justice For All” album completely
fucked me out! Abe and I went to school together, and we used to sit
there at our desks and we had a walkman with a double input plug, so
we’d both have our headphones on with our hoods on so the teacher
couldn’t see, and we’d been rocking out to that album! I did study,
but music was always my number-one passion and if it came down to
studying for a test or listening to a Metallica record, I’d listen to
the Metallica record! Those are my earliest memories of being a
straight rocker.”
