Synyster Gates: "All of us were pretty much more along the lines of..."

Synyster Gates was interviewed by Crave Online, here's an excerpt:

Did you go back even further? Aerosmith, the Stones.
Absolutely. Rolling Stones came later for me. I was a Beatles guy. All of us were pretty much more along the lines of Beatles guys than we were Stones or Elvis. And if we didn’t know it we learned it, and we studied it because we thought it would be best to know of it and hopefully love it, if it was possible. The [more you know] the less your head’s up your own ass and you become less elitist, and you’re just into everything—which is how music should be listened to. It shouldn’t be listened to with disdain, you should embrace it. If it’s not your cup of tea, go somewhere else, listen to something else, but try it because you can find something that pissed you off your whole life but you can come to embrace it and love it. It’s life changing so don’t deny yourself that.
