Synyster Gates Turned "Bright Orange-Green Like An Oompa Loompa" Before First Avenged Sevenfold Show.

Synyster Gates reflected on his first show with Avenged Sevenfold to Revolver telling the publication why he turned “bright orange-green like an Oompa Loompa.”

“I remember the first show,” he says. “I really wasn’t nervous at all. The worst part about the first show wasn’t nerves, it was the fact I was going to paint my face–like a Wes Borland thing with a weird painted face the whole time. I don’t know why, that is horrifying. But once my face was painted, I quickly realized, a shiver went up my spine, that this was a really bad idea. I tried to take the paint off, but I turned bright orange-green like an Oompa Loompa and we couldn’t get it off. But I went up there, and that was the only thing I was embarrassed about–an odd tone to my skin color. It was pretty ridiculous.”
