Avenged Sevenfold's M.Shadows talks about Kiss' Gene Simmons statement "Rock Is Finally Dead"

M.Shadows talked with Full Metal Jackie about 'Hail To The King: Deathbat' video game and more. Below you can read an excerpt:
Gene Simmons’ recent statement that rock is dead really stirred up a lot of passionate reactions from other musicians. What’s your take on his statement? Especially since your band is at the forefront of keeping heavy music alive.

It doesn’t mean it’s in the forefront of all entertainment and music right now, it’s obviously not. But I understand what he’s saying and I understand everybody and their responses to it. To me it’s just all drama online and I could care less.
