“All the songs that are found on Metallica – ‘Kill ‘Em All’ were written in my garage and we played all of them when I was in the band. We also did DIAMOND HEAD covers: ‘The Prince’, ‘Sucking My Love’, ‘Am I Evil’, and ‘Helpless’. We covered ‘Blitzkrieg’ by BLITZKRIEG, ‘Let It Loose’ by SAVAGE and ‘Killing Time’ by SWEET SAVAGE. All of those songs can be found on bootlegs, but I have a practice tape of us doing some of those songs. I did some arranging of the songs, but I was never credited with anything. I played at least 28 gigs with the band in the first year.”
