    He agreed to do an interview with me. :hbang:

    You can't even imagine how stoked I am about this. :scream:

    Let's get some questions, dudes. Mods, if this is in the wrong forum, I apologize, feel free to move to the correct spot.

    questions about why he moved from line6 to Ibanez amps, and about his guitars what strings and gauges he use

    Well, some suggestions:

    -How do you approach eq:ing your amp when using a 7-string?
    -Is there a piece of gear you can't live without?
    -What is the highlight of your career?

    What made him switch to 7 strings on the Obsolete album?

    What mods was done to his JCM800 that was stolen years ago?

    How does he approach his song writing?

    nice!

    maybe this is already publically know and not good to ask ... but how much influence did he have in the different fear factory remix efforts ... especially hate files... (which is still my favorite album) ... was he into the technical aspects of those projects?

    Nice one Rick:metal:
    How did you get hold of him ? Through his Myspace page ?

    I saw him say before that he never actually used Ibanez amps and just did the advertising and promoted them as a favour to Ibanez.

    Ask him about which gauge strings he uses these days.He used to use like a .52 or .54 low B (or A).
    Ask him to tell you about any new guitars he's got or is getting too.

    Good work man:yesway:

    Why does he choose to only have a single pickup in his guitars?

    What picks does he use?

    What advice would he give to upcoming 6 stringers switching to 7 string guitars?

    Here's some:

    How about some details on the new project with the drummer from Nile?
    What is your opinion of the Seymour Duncan Blackout 7's?
    What is your opinion on the Ibanez 8 string?
    What is the best seven string guitar he owns and why?
    What is your opinion on Fear Factory now that you're gone?

    More than other band, Fear Factory seemed to be the band that had the ability to define what industrial metal might sound like, in hindsight, do you feel that goal was achieved, and if not why not?

    You've been a Line 6 users for some time now, can you give a rundown of your live and studios rigs.

    Christ I could keep going.

    Ask him what his current amp setup is, what cabs/speakers is he using.

    Whats his version of the FF story?
