Drummer MIKE TERRANA On YNGWIE MALMSTEEN: "He's One Of The Worst People I've Ever Met, And I Would Never Work With Someone Like That Again"
Metal Meltdown recently caught up with drummer MIKE TERRANA, known for his work with TARJA TURUNEN and RAGE. A few excerpts from the audio interview are available below.
On his time with YNGWIE MALMSTEEN: "He's one of the worst people I've ever met, and I would never work with someone like that again, nor would I ever play with him again. I would work at McDonald's before I played drums for that guy. There's more respect and credibility in working a regular job than playing music for that man."
On leaving Rage: "They just kept quantizing my drumming, and putting heavy samples on my drums. And I said, 'Please leave it alone, man. You're destroying this, you're destroying me.' They wouldn't listen. So I left."
