The Iron Maidens guitarist Nikki Stringfield talks about Avenged Sevenfold


The Iron Maidens guitarist Nikki Stringfield was recently interviewed by National Rock Review and mentioned Avenged Sevenfold. You can read an excerpt below.


Dave Murray obviously which guitarists have influenced your playing over the years?
Well it’s funny, somebody that’s not even really known as a guitarist. Kurt Cobain got me into playing guitar because I was into Nirvana when I was young, but after that, really getting into guitar obviously I think everybody knows that Avenged Sevenfold is one of my favourite bands. When the “City of Evil” album came out it showed me something new, you know you could still be doing all these duelling guitars, and you know just shredding it on the CD. I’m from Dallas, I love Pantera, you know I love Dimebag Darrell, I loved his playing and Marty Friedman he is one of my favourites as well.
