SW: What's the worst meal you've ever eaten while on tour?
SI: I've learned to never touch the deli tray in the dressing room, which we actually stopped getting a long time ago - no one eats the rainbow meat. Actually, we were doing Monsters of Rock in Europe with Iron Maiden at the end of the '80s. We had a day off in Italy. And the worst meal I've ever eaten was actually also one of the best meals I've ever eaten, because we were at this killer restaurant in Venice - but at some point after that meal I came down with food poisoning. I was brutally sick with a fever. I couldn't go to the bathroom - usually with food poisoning, you're constantly going to the bathroom, but this was the opposite. I had some sort of bacteria in me, I couldn't go, and I couldn't eat because if I ate I'd just get sick. I had this for ten days - and the doctor said it was some bacteria that was probably from the cold seafood salad I had eaten.
SW: I interviewed Anthrax vocalist John Bush a few months ago and he admitted that he's a big 2 Unlimited fan. How often does John subject you to his shameless love for 2 Unlimited?
SI: Never. That's the thing - the only reason he actually liked them was because he thought the girl in the video was hot. He doesn't ever listen to it on the bus - I've never actually heard him listen to it, truthfully, other than when they were showing their videos on MTV in Europe. He just thought the girl was hot. That was the extent of his 2 Unlimited vibe.
SW: What's the guiltiest pleasure in your CD collection?
SI: I don't have any guilty pleasures. If I like something, I like it - I like all kinds of music. I think there are four good songs on the new Christina Aguilera record.
