30 YEARS OF ROADRUNNER- NEXT UP, CHRIS ADLER

Posted on December 31, 2010

Next in the penultimate interview in our 30th anniversary series with Roadrunner artists, we talk to LAMB OF GOD’S stix-man Chris Adler abut music in the past 30 years and his personal highlights…

In 30 years you will be…
I’m looking forward to staying as active as possible in heavy music. Sooner or later my body might give out, but I’ll never stop listening and loving it. If I can do that from a beach somewhere, no complaints!

Best music moments of the last 30 years?
Starting at 1980 huh….wow. Well we’ve all seen the rise of heavy metal as we know it today in that time. That’s pretty huge for me. The death of rap-metal was a real good move, too.

Highlight of your career thus far
Touring the world has been great and we’ve been very fortunate to have such a long career. The awards, plaques and nominations are all very nice to have as well, but for me I think the highlight has been showing my mom all the magazines we make it in to. She’s very proud and very supportive and it always makes her smile.

Crappiest moment in music in the last 30 years
Two words, Fred Durst. Also, I’ve never been a fan of country music, but I’ve noticed how it has become very pop oriented. I’m sure that drives real country artists nuts, because most of that shit sucks.

Album from your generation that will be legendary in 30 years?
Radiohead ‘OK, Computer’, Refused ‘Shape of Punk to Come’, Meshuggah ‘Destroy Erase Improve’

Roadrunner classic album
Death Symbolic.
