ZACKY VENGEANCE QUOTES
"The Best Revenge is Bettering Yourself." -Zacky Vengeance-
"Everything I get people I'm sure to save the receipt coz they usually hate it. I'm planning on buying everyone I know presents that I want so that way when they don't like them I'll take them off their hands." -2002 Zacky's response to the question
"What's the best gift you've ever given that you were more excited to give then anything you've ever recieved?"
"I love those guys. They get hated on more than anybody and they've been here for years but that's because they're doing something. Those guys have always been so supportive of us." Zacky referring to Benji and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte. - 2006 -
"The day that a band bigger than us has something to say is the day I'll take notice." Zacky on other bands criticizing A7X 2006
"We didn't really know what we were getting ourselves into. We thought you would just go to a restaurant and they would serve you King Cobra, like it was a common thing. But that wasn't the case." Referencing his experience with drinking the blood of the King Cobra in Indonesia.
"If it were all going to end tomorrow, we'd still be the same people that we are. I think that's why we have such a long career. We just stay true to ourselves and have fun doing it."
"I read that I was a 6 finger guitarist." Referencing the weirdest thing he ever read about himself.
"I think that illegal downloading is great. I'd rather sell a million songs for 5-10 cents a peice than a hundred at $20 a CD. It's all about getting your music heard."
"As far as my overall favorite song of all time I would probably say MIA from the "City of Evil" CD. I think that's probably one of the most meaningful, strongest, heartfelt, songs that we've ever written."
"We just really like to try to be the best songwriters that we can be as opposed to a good metal band or good any other kind of band."
"Avenged Sevenfold the album was our lifetime of influences put to work. I think the most distinct difference on this album is that the songs are the most focused that any Avenged Sevenfold songs have ever been in the fact that some of our other songs were on other albums were very long and meandering and almost progressive."
"On the Taste of Chaos tour we just want a tour that is memorable"
"If you don't know now you know."-Zackys words on stage after accepting the moon man in 2006 for best new artist in a video.- Incidently ZV sent out a personal group email thanking all the fans who voted and were actively supporting the band. I still have my copy framed.
"The scariest thing is when our plane missed its landing in Palma DeMallorca and barely made it back into the air over the summer. That definitely made me think differently about the world."
"Iron Maidens crew guy coming out butt ass naked to deliver us shots of scotch over the summer. It wasn’t a pretty site."
"His name is Diony. He basically acts like my mom when I am on tour. He tells me when my ideas are dumb and he brings me water and medicine when I am hungover. He is basically my go to guy for everything. Without him we would all be lost."
"The idea that someday my life will end in my death." Zackys inspiration in life.
"Definitely a square. Because its hip to be square." Answer to what geometric shape ZV would choose to be.
"Wonder Woman so I could bend over in front of the mirror." Answer to what super hero ZV would choose to be.
"When we tour we can see the change of seasons better."
"One thing we take pride in is being able to play everything that we write live."
"I've never felt that way. I've never felt like a looser. You can't get what you want if you feel like it's you against the world. You'll never get anywhere with negativity. I make my own opportunities I don't feel like everything is against me."
"All of us knew it then at the first rehearsal. We thought we were the biggest band in the world before we even played a show. We knew that was what we wanted to do. We just had to find a way to make it work."
"Johnny would bite your fuckin' ankles."
"I was born out of a vagina that was pretty depraved."
"There was a time when metal ruled the world and I don't see any reason why it should be different now."
"Zacky Vengeance-Fuck yeah! It's going to be on my tombstone. It's a huge part of my life. Only my family has been there longer."
"When we made the change some kids didn't like it. They'll come back around. A lot of people are scared of change and that's why there's not a lot of bands out there doing anything creative."
"When I get a platnium record I'll do a double-line."
"It's 1999-upside down- That was the year we formed the band. But 6661 is cool cuz it's like Satan won. To me that's the real number of the beast."
"We got to the point where we got sick of the screaming and we didn't want to contribute to the noise pollution anymore. Then we realized that all our favorite bands didn't scream."
"It's been like that from day one though. There's no middle ground with us. One of the first reviews we got best album of the month and we also got worst album of the month at the same time. It's like maybe we are onto something here."
"Some players don't appreciate how important rhythm guitar is and how a good rhythm guitarist will hold everything together".
"The other bands in our genre, heavy bands it's like they've given up and given it over to rap. They say aw..fuck TRL. You don't take over the world by leaving unconquered territory."
"Just for good measure we had to bum the drummer out by taking away some of his favorite parts of the record too".
"We expect this album to take us to the next level".
"With each album we're becoming a little more fearless. One thing that annoys me is people who say A7X were at their best when "Sounding the Seventh Trumpet" was out. Where were those fans when we couldn't sale out a single show or sale over 2000 copies of the album?"
"Critical Acclaim is us telling people who don't make the decisions to just shut up for a minute. Their bitching really isn't helping". Zacky Vengeance issued the following thanks to fans for their #4 Billboard debut of the self- titled album Avenged Sevenfold: "It’s kind of funny to wake up and see the words Avenged Sevenfold at the #4 spot on the billboard top 200. Right next to The Eagles and a Britney/Carrie Underwood threesome. I don’t know about you but it puts a smirk on my face just knowing that our fans tattooed it right on the foreheads of everyone who would quickly disregard the name Avenged Sevenfold (like we aren’t a fucking force to be reckoned with, Haha). So once again thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
"MTV has decided to debut our video for almost easy on TRL which makes me believe that someone over at MTV is screaming for something real. I’ll be honest with you, when I roll out of bed every morning my goal in life isn’t to be alongside popstars or actors and actresses or on the cover of the national enquirer. It sure does feel good though to surprise all those people that don’t even know what "an A7X" is by putting them right behind us on the countdown or going home with their moonman."
"We’re coming to your city to kick ass and have a great fucking time with all of you. Thank you all again for every ounce of support love and respect!"
