Backstage at Download Festival 2012, Hugh was trying to interview Chris Jericho, WWE Superstar and frontman of FOZZY, only Chris forgot to turn his phone off and it caused all manner of problems with our microphone. OH CHRIS. We forgive him though, even if he did tell us off camera that he thought our logo said “Thrash Hats” (FAO Chris: please don’t unleash the codebreaker on us, thnx).

So far, so good, right?

Well, it would be, had we not rather foolishly ended up filming the interview in a darkened backstage dressing room, with a camera that is about as much use in dealing with low-light conditions as a paper hat is at dealing with a monsoon.

Tosin Abasi Animals As Leaders Thrash Hits

If there’s one member of the Thrash Hits team guaranteed to get along with Tosin Abasi, the guitar virtuoso at the heart of Animals As Leaders, it’s our man, Amit Sharma. The pair of them giggled like children as they traded stories about Frank Gambale, Guthrie Govan, and the wonders of 7- and 8-strong guitars. We suspect if our video camera hadn’t been there, they might’ve even gotten a little fresh with each other.
