" I suppose things are different now. if you watch MTV, they have these ‘Free Your Mind’ segments in the news hour, where they re post on gay issues and stuff like that. Pretty much in subtle ways they remind everyone how sexist the wave of heavy metal was throughout the entire Eighties, because all the stuff is almost completely dead. It’s dying fast. I find it really funny to see a lot of those groups like Poison - not even Poison, but Warrant and Skid Row, bands like that - desperately clinging to their old identities, but now trying to have an alternative angle in their music. It gives me a small thrill to know that I’ve helped in a small way to get rid of those people - or maybe at least to make them think about what they’ve done in the last 10 years. Nothing has changed, really, except for bands like Soul Asylum who’ve been struggling in the bars forever, and now they have their pretty faces on MTV. Still, they have a better attitude than the metal people. I think it’s healthier. I’d much rather have that than the old stuff. "
