Synyster Gates: "I have the final say of what happens in a solo. If Matt doesn't want..."

Synyster Gates was interviewed by Ultimate Guitar, here's an excerpt:

Do you enlist outside opinions about your solos? 
It's definitely the best way to go. We do that with every facet of Avenged Sevenfold - everybody is with everything. I have the final say of what happens in a solo. If Matt doesn't want to sing a certain way, he won't sing a certain way. Everybody pretty much has final say but we're all great friends and it's good to collaborate with people that you trust because if you don't trust them you're not going to listen to them. Or you're gonna be really bummed. So trust the people you're working with and make sure they trust you. Then you'll never have a point where you look at something and go, "Damn, I should have done this. I should have done that." I don't have a moment like that in my mind though I'm sure there is something I could find. But literally if I thought very hard, I could count them on one hand. I'm very thankful to have great collaborators - they bring out the best.
