Express & Star caught up with M. Shadows to talk about Avenged Sevenfold’s first UK tour, remaining humble, his sons, regaining his full vocal range, who he would like to duet with and the band’s new stage show.
“I think success takes a lot of people who get along and have a vision. But it also relies on luck and the right things do have to happen at the right time. The location is important too. A lot of bands aren’t close to LA like we are. It can be a lot harder for bands in Oklahoma, say, or in the middle of Europe, to be discovered,” said Matt.
“It’s only after 10 years of work following my operation that I’ve regained my full range,” he added. When asked who he would like to duet with, Matt’s answer was Elton John and David Bowie.
“It’s not very metal, but I love their style,” said Matt.
