Synyster Gates: " It's not about money or being the biggest f--king band in the world, it's..."

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

The idea of headlining a festival like Download where your heroes have performed doesn't leave you blasé in any way? 
Certainly not blasé. We realize we have a lot of work to do when we go to certain places - I won't say numbers because I'll sound like a f--kin' idiot - it's just not as big as other places. You'll be like, "OK, this is kind of a little lopsided but let's work our asses off to get to where we know is good and like the feel of. We like the bigger shows and we can do what we always grew up watching. Huge, gigantic shows and tons of fire and bands playing everybody's favorite songs and bands playing more songs for kids." You can do so much more when a show is bigger. It's not about money or being the biggest f--king band in the world - it's not about that. It's about the type of show you can put on when you're headlining. Something like Download is nothing short of a dream come true. 

That is so cool. 
Definitely.
