Jon Schaffer from Demons & Wizards (Iced Earth)
ROCK TALK WITH MITCH LAFON presents Jon Schaffer from Demons & Wizards (Iced Earth).
Jon discusses Demon & Wizards great new album III, the creative process behind it, his interest as establishing the band as his primary band, will commercial success dictate the band's future, having made a new classic record, the music industry's hamster wheel, working on his very unique first book, Iced Earth's upcoming new album, touring and much more.
"This whole project stems from brotherhood."
"We discovered by accident that we (Hansi & himself) could write songs together."
"One of the big things that makes this album so diverse is there's actually four tunings on it. It's a fairly big deal in terms of dynamics."
"We both know our audience. And we know what they want because it's what we want."
Touring - "2021 - Iced Earth. No Demons & Wizards. If Metallica says 'we want to take Demons & Wizards on tour,' then everything will probably change. But in the real world there's probably no chance of Demons' shows until 2022 at the earliest."
