    Watch Bob Rock try not to cry for 1hr 4mins in this Gibson interview



    This is a great interview, I stuck it on in my workshop whilst working on some guitars a couple of weeks back.

    But man, his voice, at times, just sounds like he's trying to hold back a wave of tears. It's majorly distracting and unsettling, but if you can make it through, it's a great interview.

    Particularly the parts where he talks about being told off by Hetfield for smiling on stage

    Bob Rock now looks like Beau Bridges in a surfer guy wig.

    Btw for those of you here for Metallica only, it starts at 42:07.

    I love that they'd never considered downtuning until he mentioned it.

    Bob: Why are all your songs in E?
    James:... because it's the lowest note?

    I guess it just didn't suit the tight thrash stuff to be downtuned. But man, if they'd released Sad But True in E it wouldn't be half the song it turned out to be.

    And they played it even lower live. Also one of the songs from Garage Days was in D as well. I think Crash Course.

    Watched the whole vid...great interview and insight into the career of someone pivotal to the rock scene. About the crying, at first I noticed it when he was talking about his parents or old friends, but it kept coming up during moments while reminiscing about key points, like working with Crue, the Bruce Fairburn days, etc. It makes me wonder what he's not disclosing about those times. At any rate, the end sums it up. It seems like he's a proud rock music fanboy who honestly can't believe that he's had the life that he did.

    I won't be getting on the Gibson bandwagon, but thanks for the great albums, Bob!

    Oh for sure, I wasn't trying to be like HAHA CHECK OUT THIS GUY CRY!! But I wasn't sure if it was emotion, or if his voice had just developed a natural "warble" as it often does in the autumn years. Dude's had an incredible life and, whether you like it or not, was single-handedly responsible for changing the face of metal music production.
