Synyster Gates: "I just wanted to f--kin' play with Michael Jackson or something..."

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

Were you actually doing studio work before joining the band? 
Sadly I was not. I was attempting to. My father was a studio musician and he's played with - he's right over there somewhere [points to his father standing in the corner] - Zappa and all sorts of f--king different people. So that's what I wanted to be. I didn't want to write music and I didn't want to be an artist - I just wanted to f--kin' play with Michael Jackson or something. I studied all sorts of different styles of music, which brought me to M.I. Studying jazz and fusion. Having that background, I really wanted a diverse guitar.
