They named that album after him though. Once they'd kicked him out, you know, "We've got his number".
Well in his anti-Bruce tirades (the ones after some morons had been shouting "Bruce Dickinson" at him) he was ranting that his "music" is Punk Rock.Isn't Paul the one who was recorded at a gig saying 'Fuck Metal' and going on and on about how he is all about punk? Yet this is clearly metal. Perhaps I'm wrong, I just swear I remember him being quoted as thinking metal is inferior.
"I've got tell you one thing, my voice is actually getting better. I'm hitting notes I've never hit in quite a long time. And you know why? 'Cause I don't fuss about over it. Some people, they go, 'Oh, I've got a slight cough. Let's cancel the whole show. The whole tour's gonna be off.' If you look at my touring schedule, it's brutal, normally. I do this five, six, seven days a week, something like that, and I'm still hitting those notes. And I'm really happy with what we're doing in the studio. I'm hitting notes Rob Halford can't hit anymore. So I'm doing quite well; I'm really happy. And the reason why is 'cause I don't fuss about over it. A slight little cough? 'Oh, no, that's it; everything is off.' Me, I don't care of me voice. I still smoke, I still drink. I still have it, mate."
