Synyster Gates: "Matt's was very much Iron Maiden and especially..."

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

Did you look at what Iron Maiden and Judas Priest were doing? 
Yeah, but we really didn't know about that. We're kinda starting to get more into Priest at this point but certainly Iron Maiden and that was Matt's thing. It's kind of ironic because we do this whole dual thing but mine came from Boston and Queen kind of stuff or punk rock emulating vocalists. Matt's was very much Iron Maiden and especially when we started getting more melodic metal as opposed to punk or hardcore.

I don't have a vehicle but would pay, and love to see you guys in concert.The closest thing I have to that is The Live in the LBC video.
