Synyster Gates: "Onstage when you're moving around and stuff and..."

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

Before a show you'll run through solos twice before you go out each night?
Yep. Onstage when you're moving around and stuff and not so much at home but you start playing things different. Things take on their own evolution and become different and unintended things. Sometimes good and sometimes bad and that's why a live song after three years of performing it, people will hear completely different things. The melody is sometimes completely abandoned unless the band tries to correct that. The same with solos. So it's good to recalibrate your playing and go through everything and learn exactly what's going on with that.
