MANOWAR - Ancient Battles Page 3

The Silver Edition allows the brotha to lift up the loincoth and take a peek behind the mystique, which Eric agrees, at this point in the Manowar saga, is a good thing.

"The pictures are pretty funny in there, aren't they (laughs)? I know we've got the whole image thing, but a lot of these pictures, this is who we really are. The image thing is for a reason. It's to remind people, hey man, we're serious about our music. But we have another side. We have a good time, we like to f**k chicks, we like to get down and party and we have a good f**king time doing it. And the booklet, I think the pictures show us f**king around a lot. There's that one shot, I didn't think it was going to be in there. Joey surprised me. We had a photo shoot in Dallas during the first tour, when we met Ted Nugent, at Reunion Arena, and that was taken in front of the arena. We were sitting with these rocks all around us and the guys are giving me the finger behind me (laughs). When we were looking at the slides here, when I first saw that picture I almost pissed my pants I was laughing so hard (laughs)."
