Interviews Black Death Resurrected

Interview with Siki Spacek

Interview conducted by Omni

Date online: July 27, 2017


"ALRIGHT ALL YOU HEADBANGERS OUT THERE!"

I've been a fan of Black Death since I discovered them in the early 2000s and I was ecstatic when Siki Spacek and Vincent Lindsay brought the band back to life as Black Death Resurrected and began playing shows and releasing new material. I've previously reviewed Until We Rock: The Early Recordings of Black Death and The Return of the Iron Messiah, which resulted in me getting in contact with the band when they read what I'd written and sent me a note of appreciation. It was certainly inevitable that I would catch up with The Iron Messiah himself, Siki Spacek, for a proper interview. Or as Siki might say, "DESTINY BEGINS NOW!"

Omni: First of all, how are you doing? You've been quite busy with new and old material coming out and live performances.

Siki: Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhh... Let's seeeeeeeeeeee... I FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL IN RARE FORM TONIGHT... LOL... YOUR QUESTIONS PLEEEEEAAASE... I HAVE A SHOW WITH ANTICHRIST TOMORROW EVENING... AND I MUST PREPARE TO DELIVER SWIFT METAL JUSTICE- !!!...

Omni: I'm glad to hear that you're pumped up. How did your recent show in Brooklyn go? I wasn't lucky enough to attend, but my friends who were there loved it.

Siki: The show in Brooklyn was great... We all had a great time... Except for the traffic conditions there...

Omni: I was born in New York and we visited family there a lot, so I can relate. The traffic is killer. You mentioned a new Black Death Resurrected album during that show, entitled Breaking the Chains of Hell and you played some new songs. What can you tell me about the album?

Siki: Oooooooohhh its going to be HEAVY of course... Buuuuuut I want to add a little bit more of a darker melody than the previous ones... I LOOOOVE King Diamond and Mercyful Fate... That dark gothic thing is straight up Black Death... Lol... Buuuuuut the music will dictate eventually what it wants to be... Just tap into to that special place in the cosmos where there is a single sonic sound that is vibrating constantly... The album won't be out until next year...

Omni: I certainly appreciate the "Dreamer Deceiver" reference. You've spoken very highly of Judas Priest in the past. Can you tell me what makes them so special to you?

Siki: I would say that there are some similarities... Buuuuuut that's because we both draw from the same source... The music just flows when you can tap into this source... It's all really a spiritual experience... For me anyway...

And there's only so many notes and scales in the first place... Soooooooo you're bound to cross the musical path of other creative artists and musicians... You can hear a song... Or a part in a song and take it and make a whole different song or direction with it... Take my song "Retribution" for example... It was inspired by the UFO song "Let It Roll"... I liked the tune... Loooove it really... Buuuuuut I always thought that it should have been more dramatic and much heavier than it was... Soooooooo like connecting the dots... I made a much heavier version of the song that inspired me to do so...

I was born this way... I was born for heavy metal... And heavy metal WAS BORN FOR MEEEEEEEEEEE-!!!... AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAA- !!!...

Omni: The rehearsal songs on the reissue of The Return of the Iron Messiah are the same songs that you played at your Brooklyn show. These songs are going to be on the new album, right?

Siki: Yes... Those songs are from the archives... And will be the first three songs on the next record... The title song is from the 1983 demo...

Omni: That's excellent. I really like "The Low Axe" out of those new (old) songs. Was it hard for you to come back and play music in the style of Black Death after so many years?

Siki: It wasn't hard at all for me to activate the "Black Death Sound" once I reacquired the same tools/equipment... My Dean Cadillacs along with my 100-watt full Marshall stack... Buuuuuut it's really not hard at all for me to "recreate" the original sound... Because I am the core source of Black Death...

As an example... Every time I played music with some of my fellow musicians... Whether jam sessions or a musical project... Because of my sound and how I played... It still comes out sounding like Black Death... LOL...

Omni: That would certainly explain why you've managed to keep the same sound an energy as ever. Can you tell me how you got started playing guitar and what made you start playing heavy metal?

Siki: Hmmmmmmmmm... Ever since I can remember back when I was still crawling around when I was still in a crib... I have always had the image of a guitar in my mind even before I saw one... Later in my adolescence... I saw a TV special involving Elvis Presley and his comeback show in Las Vegas... And when I saw him in his black leather outfit with the guitar playing on stage... That's when I jumped up excitedly and told my grandparents that that was the thing in my head that I was trying to describe to them before...

Later on in 68"... I saw my first picture of JIMI HENDRIX with his guitar... And that picture said more than a thousand words ever could... I always had the music of heavy metal coursing throughout my mind and imagination long before I had ever heard Black Sabbath... And long before they put out the album that would define all of us who were being called by the spirit of Metal... It was fruitless in my attempts to try and explain what this music was that I had going on in my head... All of my family and friends thought that I was crazy or on drugs or both... That is until my dear good childhood friend Charles Peterson played the Black Sabbath Master of Reality album... AND THEN FINALLY I HAD A REFERENCE POINT WHICH I COULD HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHAT I WAS HEARING... FINALLY ALL OF THE MUSIC THAT I HAD HEARD DURING MY UPBRINGING FROM THE VARIOUS TV WESTERNS AND NOIR FILMS... AND THE VARIOUS OTHER SOURCES THAT LED TO MY MUSICAL INSPIRATIONS... FINALLY I HAD A FOUNDATION TO BUILD UPON...

I LOOOOVE THE GUITAR... AND GUITAR PLAYERS... AS FAR AS ANY GUITAR PLAYER BEING MY IDOL... I DON'T HAVE IDOLS... I HAVE A VEEEEEEEEEERY DEEP RESPECT AND ADMIRATION FOR JIMI HENDRIX... ULRICH ROTH... AND MICHAEL SCHENKER BECAUSE THEY SOUNDED LIKE THE THINGS I WAS HEARING IN MY HEAD AS FAR AS THE MUSIC OF THE GUITARIST... THE ONLY REASON I DON'T PLAY LEFT HANDED... (and I started out in the beginning practicing playing left-handed...) IS BECAUSE JIMI DID IT FIRST... AND I DIDN'T WANT PEOPLE TO THINK THAT I WAS A JIMI HENDRIX IMPERSONATOR... LOL... I HAD ALREADY STARTED PLAYING WITH MY TEETH SO I WASN'T GOING TO STOP DOING THAT... I HAD INVESTED TOO MUCH TOOTH ENAMEL TO GIVE THAT UP... LOL... I AM ALWAYS HEARING THESE MELODIES AND MELODIC STYLE GUITAR PLAYING IN MY HEAD... AND AFTER SEEING MICHAEL SCHENKER ON ABC ROCK CONCERT... AND LISTENING TO THE UFO FORCE IT ALBUM... I HAD FOUND ANOTHER SOURCE TO GUIDE ME WITH WHAT I WAS HEARING IN MY MIND... AND THEN CAME ULIIIIIIIIIIIIII ROTH... WITH THE SCORPIONS- !!!... AND THE MELODIC PHRASING COUPLED WITH THE DRAMATIC SONGS AND CLASSICAL MUSIC STYLE GUITAR PLAYING... WEEEEELL THIS WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TRYING TO BRING OUT OF MY MIND INTO A PIECE OF MUSIC THAT I COULD PLAY ON GUITAR...

SOOOOOOOOO WITH THAT BEING SAID... I DON'T HAVE IDOLS WHO PLAY GUITAR... BUUUUUUT I HAVE THE UTMOST RESPECT AND APPRECIATION FOR ALL OF THE GREAT AND INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC THAT THEY AND OTHER GUITARISTS WHOM I ADMIRE AND ENJOY LISTENING TO PLAY...

Omni: I love Uli's work with Scorpions as well. He really defined a lot of things that everyone else was using a few years down the line. You have so many awesome songs, both old and new, that are so distinctly Black Death in style. My personal favorites are "Until We Rock" and "Taken by Force" from the Cleveland Metal compilation. What are your favorite Black Death songs?

Siki: ALL OF MY SONGS I LOOOOVE... EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER PLAYED... MISTAKES AND ALL I HAVE ENJOYED PLAYING THEM ALL... I LOOOOVE TO PLAY SPONTANEOUSLY WHEN I DO IMPROV SOLOS... I LOVE PLAYING WITH PASSION AND FIRE... JUST LIKE MY SAGITARIAN BROTHERS JIMI HENDRIX AND ULIIIIIIIIIIIIII JON ROTH...

Omni: That question might have been unfair, because it's going to be tough to choose when it's your own music. That reminds me, the self-titled Black Death album is supposed to be reissued soon on Hells Headbangers! When does it actually come out?

Siki: It should be out perhaps this month or maybe August. Any time now... It is long overdue...

Omni: I would have to agree with you there. I understand that your current label, Wyrd War, set you up with Hells Headbangers to help the album be more accessible to fans because it is coming out on a bigger label. Can you tell me about Wyrd War and how you began your association with the label?

Siki: We began our association with Wyrd War records thanks to it's founder and owner... COMMODORE DENNIS DREDD... LOL... Who invited us to perform in Portland Oregon back in 2014... We had already begun to record the second record at Billy Morris's recording studio... "HI-FI RECORDING STUDIO"... Billy Morris played with Warrant and Quiet Riot back in the day... He also played a solo on the song... "LIVE BY THE SWORD, DIE BY THE SWORD"... (After Vinnie and I do our hammer on duet during the solos break...) I had no idea that he was a Black Death fan BIG TIME... LOL...

Anyway, I told Dennis that I would bring him a copy of the demo of the record... And I did... He listened to it after we flew back to Cleveland... And by the time that we reached Cleveland he contacted me and said that he wanted to make the album and put it out on vinyl... Which was fine by me because I had a fear of dying and just leaving the first album as my only musical legacy (aside from the various bootlegs that were floating around...) And I wanted to make a second record as soon as possible... Because I didn't realize that anybody actually remembered Black Death... Other than the first record... And I didn't want Black Death to be taken or known as just a "token act"...

Soooooooooo imagine my surprise that someone wanted to fly us across the flatlands of America to Portland, Oregon, to perform at a festival... I'M KICKING AND SCREAMING JUST THINKING OF IT... And imagine my totally unexpected surprise at the HOSPITALITY AND THE LOVE AND WELCOME THAT WE RECEIVED FROM GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWD DAAAAAAAAAAMMMN DENNIS MOTHER FUCKING DREEEEEEDD- !!!... AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAA- !!!... When we got there... He made sure that we were treated as genuine rock stars... From the lodgings... To the eats and drinks... To make sure that we the band were comfortable and had nooooooo worries other than the show...

Buuuuuuuuut let me tell you Judy... (this is my monologue now...your interview has now been commandeered and I can now officially give you one of my personal nick names...lol...) When I first shook hands with him... I knew right then that he was a REEEEEEEAAAL mate/brother like myself... And before we even played the show the next day I asked him to be our manager... And my personal and business manager... Just like with the crew members who have served in Black Death in the past...

I'm veeeeeeeery particular about who I associate with and especially play in a band with... Especially since I tend to stay off to myself... Focusing on my various studies and playing with my guitar... Trying to get the strange melodic songs in my head that I have come up with over the years... Along with the more recent musical ideas...I hope to have more of the heavy melodic ideas on the next record...

Anyways... After we got back in Cleveland as stated earlier... And that's when we were reeeeeaaally able to talk... (he had already told us the name of his record label was Wyrd War records...) He also told us about some of the other bands that he had on his label... A band called DANAVA... (also from the Portland area...) Also last year when we did a mini West Coast tour... Our first time (second time in the West Coast...) Playing on the road for a whole week... The reasoning behind it being... To see how much of a following in the West Coast Black Death had... It was a success because we were able to overcome some adversity within the band while we were out there... Buuuuuuuuut in the end we came through with flying colors...

Now about the Man called Judge Dennis Dreeeeeed-???... Words can't express how DEEPLY SPIRITUAL he is and such a beautiful wonderful person... Back when I was plotting my return from the lands of limbo... I said that I would rebuild Black Death from top to bottom only with the people who are of a spiritual nature and honest and true... People who I could count on to handle the business end while I could fully concentrate on the music... And my brother Dennis is the one... Then it was finding the right musicians with the right grooves... And trying to get all of these grooves together to see which grooves I could blend in together to help make the Black Death sound even heavier... Which we were able to do in a big way after I recruited our current drummer... Commander Priiiiiiiime... Mr. Christopher Stolle... And our current bassist... My Nephilim... Mr. Jeremy Kursik...

Omni: Wow that is quite a story. You should be proud to have assembled a good team around yourself so that you can just focus on making music. You should also consider writing a book!

Siki: IN THE EVENT OF MY PASSING... I WISH TO GIVE AS MUCH OF AN ACCURATE HISTORY OF BLACK DEATH AND MY ROLE IN IT'S CREATION... AND THE VARIOUS MADCAP ADVENTURES THAT I HAVE HAD WITH THE VARIOUS INCARNATIONS OF BLACK DEATH AND THEIR LINEUPS...

Omni: Come on, we both know that The Iron Messiah is no mortal man.

Siki: BEHOLD... THOUGH MY FLESH IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT... I AM STILL OF FLESH AND BLOOD... AND WHEN MY DESTINY IS DONE... WEEEEELL... SOOOOOOOOO BE IT... LOOKING AT THE WORLDWIDE SITUATION AND ALL OF THE THINGS THAT ARE GOING ON... THAT COUPLED WITH MY AGE... ALONG WITH THE MORAL DECAY OF SOCIETY... NOT TO MENTION MY FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES WHO APPEAR TO BE DROPPING LIKE FLIES AROUND ME... WEEEEEEELL LET'S JUST SAY THAT IT'S TIME TO MAKE HASTE AND DO THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT YOU WANTED TO DO... TO FINISH THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE STARTED AND NOT YET COMPLETED... TO TAKE THE TIME TO VISIT AND SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH OUR FAMILY FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES...

Omni: I would certainly buy a copy if you get it published. You should also include all of your song lyrics and details of what inspired you to write them. Your lyrics are actually really great, even on top of everything else that I like about your music. Am I right to say that "The Mandrake" is a very autobiographical song?

Siki: OOOOOOOOHHH YEEEEEEEEEESSS INDEEDY LUV... THE MANDRAKE IS VEEEEEEEEEERY AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL...

AND THERE ARE SOME SONGS THAT SPEAK OF THINGS FROM THE SUBJECT'S POINT OF VIEW... SUCH AS A SONG CALLED... "THE SERMON OF SIN"... THAT TELLS THE TRUE STORY ABOUT RELIGION AND THE MASTERMIND BEHIND IT... Here's the first verse...

"My name is LUCIFER...
And this is my world...
I've given you your religions...
And deceived the whole world...
This is my kingdom...
And you are my slaves...
I have corrupted your children...
And poisoned their minds..."

And many thanks for your compliments on my lyrics... And thank you for recognizing some of the messages and clues that I leave in my songs...

Omni: I'd hope that everyone who is a fan of any band tries to figure out what their songs are about. Do you have any other song lyrics that you want to talk about?

Siki: I came up with "The Streetwalker" after walking around the streets of Cleveland late at night after dark... Traveling to the various red-light areas doing research for the song... Under the guise of that trying to get some freeee easy coochie... Actually it worked also... I lost my virginity to a streetwalker who gave me some coochie after she read the lyrics I had written... This was waaaaaaay back in high school in 1974/75... "The Streetwalker" was one of those songs that I was hearing in my head along with some other songs... That I had been hearing in my head before I even learned to play the guitar... (which I learned how to play just by reading a book...and a few helpful hints and tips from my friends...LOL...)

Omni: That's another cool story. I wish that I had enough time to ask you about every one of your songs. I did want to ask you about the origin of your stage name. Can you tell me the legend of Siki Spacek?

Siki: THE NAME SIKI WAS BEQUEATHED TO ME BY SOMEONE WHO SHARED MY BIRTH NAME WITH ME... (hint...my name means king and ruler...check out the book of names to find out what my true first name is...LOL...) THE OTHER STUDENTS IN CLASS USED TO TEASE ME WITH IT BACK IN 72"... HE WROTE THE NAME SIKI ON THE BLACK BOARD IN MUSIC CLASS AND ANNOUNCED TO THE CLASS AND EVENTUALLY THE REST OF THE SCHOOL... TO CALL ME SIKI... SO WE COULD BE DISTINGUISHED FROM EACH OTHER...

Omni: Yes, I've read that your birth name is Reginald Gamble. Can Siki Spacek really have such a humble everyday identity?

Siki: FOR THOSE WITH THE POWERS OF OBSERVATION... COULD TELL THAT BRUCE WAYNE IS BATMAN... AND CLARK KENT IS SUPERMAN... LMAO... SOOOOOOOOOOOO YEEEEEEEESSS INDEEDY MY DARLING... THAT IS MY NAME ALSO... ALONG WITH... PAUL MANDRAKE... MACK PLAYER... MONSTA RELLIE... AND THE TERRIBLE HUMDINGER... TO NAME JUST A FEW...

Omni: That's an impressive list of names. Speaking of heroes, I've had the chance to talk to one of mine a few times recently, Thomas Gabriel Fischer of Hellhammer/Celtic Frost/Triptykon. We actually discussed Black Death, because he owns Cleveland Metal and he said that he enjoys the two songs that you have on that record. Have you talked to any other big musicians who are fans of your music?

Siki: REEEEEEALLLY?!... I HAVE BEEN VEEEEEEEEEERY MUCH SURPRISED THAT SOME OF THESE FAMOUS CELEBRITIES KNEW THAT WE EXISTED... WHEN I FIRST CAME BACK TO THE METAL SCENE IN 2004... I DIDN'T REEEEEAAALLY THINK ANYONE REMEMBERED BLACK DEATH...

THE GUITARIST IN THE TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA... JEFF MCCAFFERY WAS DOING THIS GIG AT ALICE COOPER'S SPORTS BAR AND GRILL... FOR THE LAST BRAVE WORDS AND BLOODY KNUCKLES FESTIVAL BACK IN CLEVELAND BACK IN 2005... AND I HAD TOLD THE GUYS IN THE BAND THAT I WAS PLAYING IN... L.O.B.D.M.... (The Legacy of Black Death Mandrake...) TO USE THE BLACK DEATH NAME TO GET SOME GIGS FOR US... BUUUUUUT UNDER NOOOOOOO CIRCUMSTANCES WERE THEY TO USE MY NAME... BUUUUUUT JEFF ONLY ALLOWED US TO PLAY THE GIG AS AN OPENER AS LONG AS WE USED THE NAME SIKI SPACEK... THERE'S A REASON BEHIND THAT... BUUUUUUUT I'M SAVING IT FOR THE BOOK...

I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THERE ARE QUITE A FEW MEMBERS OF SOME BANDS OF GREAT REPUTE THAT ARE FANS OF BLACK DEATH... I STILL FIND IT SURREAL WHEN I MEET SOME OF THEM AND THEY TELL ME HOW MUCH THEY LOVE THE MUSIC... HUMBLING INDEED... BUUUUUUT ALSO KIND OF SAD... BECAUSE OF MY 30 YEARS SELF-EXILE... I PERHAPS HAVE DEPRIVED MYSELF AND SOME OF THE OTHER BANDS AND ICONS THE PLEASURE OF HAVING FRIENDSHIPS WITH EACH OTHER... AND POSSIBLY MUSICAL COLLABORATIONS THAT THE CONGREGATIONS OF HEAVY METAL WILL POSSIBLY NEVER HEAR... IT'S TRUUUUULY A HUMBLING EXPERIENCE FOR ME...

Omni: I'm definitely glad that you decided to stage this fantastic comeback. The fan reception has been all positive from what I have seen.

Siki: WHAT'S EVEN MORE HUMBLING THAN THAT IS THE LOYAL FANS OF BLACK DEATH WHO HAVE WAITED AND SUFFERED THROUGHOUT THE LONG EXILE I HAVE BEEN IN... AND THE MUSIC THAT THEY WANT TO SEE LIVE IN THEIR FACES... THE FANS WHO HAVE NEVER EVER GIVEN UP THE HOPE OF SEEING THR IRON MESSIAH ON STAGE LIVE IN THE FLESH-!!!... THE FANS WHOSE PRAYERS AND FEELINGS THAT I FELT AND HEARD... THAT LEAD ME BACK TO FINISH THIS DESTINY AND TO ANSWER THEIR PRAYERS... AND TO DELIVER UNTO ALL OF THE CONGREGATIONS OF HEAVY METAL WORLDWIDE- !!!... IT'S THESE WHO I HAVE THE UTMOST LOOOOVE AND RESPECT FOR...

HEEEEEEELL MATE... EVEN TITO JACKSON OF THE JACKSON 5 IS A FAN OF BLACK DEATH... MY BROTHER WORKS WITH HIM AND THE OTHER JACKSONS AT HIS STUDIO...

Omni: Your passion for music and your fans is amazing. What about you? Are you a fan of any newer bands?

Siki: HEEEEEEEELLL YEEEEEEEESSS LUV... HEH HEH HEH HEH HEEEEEH... I LOVE HELL AND BACK... SLEEPLORD... VATICAN... AND THERE ARE A COUPLE OF OTHER BANDS AROUND LOCALLY THAT I LIKE BUT HAVE YET TO LEARN THEIR IDENTITIES... AS FAR AS MAINSTREAM- ???... THAT'S A GOOOOOOOOD QUESTION... DETHKLOK-!!!... I HAVE HEARD OTHER BANDS PLAY WHERE THE MUSIC WAS GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWD DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMNN GOOD BUT... THE COOKIE MONSTER VOCALS RUINED IT FOR ME...

DON'T GET ME WRONG... COOKIE MONSTER VOCALS HAVE THEIR PLACE... BUUUUUUUUUUT DEFINITELY NOT THE TYPE OF VOCALS TO BE USED ON EVERY SONG... IT'S LIKE SEASONING FOOD... A LITTLE BIT OF THIS AND A DASH OF THAT TO MAKE THE DISH... OR SONG IN THIS CASE... TO REACH THAT DELICATE BALANCE BETWEEN BEING JUST RIGHT...

Omni: I'd have to agree. Extreme music has gotten very lazy over the years. Only a few bands really stand out anymore. Okay, let's have a bit of fun. If you could collaborate with any musicians, living or dead, who would you like to work with?

Siki: HMMMMMMMMMM- ???... THAT'S EASY... JIMI HENDRIX... ULIIIIIIIIIIIIII ROTH... MICHAEL SCHENKER... RONNIE JAMES DIO... FREDDIE MERCURY... MICHAEL JACKSON... PRINCE... AND LAST BUUUUUUUUUUT DEFINITELY NOT THE LEAST... GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWD DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMNN LEMMY KILMISTER-!!!...

AND MY FATHER... HE PLAYED GUITAR ALSO... BUUUUUUUUUUT HE WOULD NEVER LET ME HEAR HIM PLAY... THE ONLY TIME THAT I HEARD MY FATHER PLAY WAS WHEN I ACCIDENTALLY WALKED IN ON HIM PLAYING ALL OF THESE CRAZY JAZZ CHORDS... LOL...

BEING A GUITAR PLAYER CAN BE LIKE BEING A MACK... OR PIMP... (WITHOUT THE SEX TRAFFICKING...LOL...) THE BEST EXAMPLE I CAN GIVE IS JIMI... HE DRESSED AS FLASHY AS ANY PIMP AND HAD THE WOMEN ALL AROUND HIM ATTENDING TO HIS VARIOUS NEEDS... LOL AGAIN...

Omni: Did Jimi.Hendrix inspire your style of dress?

Siki: ACTUALLY NO... I WAS DRESSING LIKE THAT BEFORE I WAS PLAYING GUITAR... THERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT I WAS DOING BEFORE I EVER HEARD JIMI... THAT ONCE I FOUND OUT... I STOPPED DOING... LIKE PLAYING GUITAR LEFT HANDED TO BE DIFFERENT FROM THE REST... TO BE UNIQUE... BUUUUUUUUUUT ONCE I FOUND OUT THAT HE PLAYED LEFT HANDED... I SWITCHED BACK TO PLAYING RIGHT HANDED... I DIDN'T WANT ANYONE TO THINK THAT I WAS COPYING HIM...

JIMI HENDRIX WAS FOR THAT GENERATION... SIKI SPACEK IS FOR THIS GENERATION...

After the place where he says this:

JIMI HENDRIX WAS FOR THAT GENERATION... SIKI SPACEK IS FOR THIS GENERATION...

YOU COULD EVEN SAY THAT I WAS THE FIRST BIG HAIR METAL GUITARIST BEFORE THE 80s HAIR METAL GUITARIST CRAZE BEGAN- !!!... AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAA- !!!...

Omni: Your passion is amazing. It's been a pleasure talking to you. Do you have any last rites that you want to deliver to your fans that are reading this interview?

Siki: AS FOR THE LAST RITES TO THE CONGREGATIONS OF HEAVY METAL ALL ACROSS THE EARTH... REPENT-!!!... HEAVY METAL SALVATION IS AT HAND... TIME TO SAY YOUR PRAYERS... NOW ON YOUR KNEES ... HE COMES NOW... THE LAST PROPHET... BEFORE THE RISE OF THE BEAST... YOUR PRAYERS SHALL BE ANSWERED... THE SENTENCE HAS BEEN MADE... PREPARE YOURSELVES FOR SWIFT METAL JUSTICE- !!!... AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAA- !!!...

(Pyrotechnics flash across the screens of your computers and mobile devices as you read this...LOL...)

UNTIL WE ROCK-!!!...

Omni: Siki Spacek is certainly a national treasure. I'm looking forward to picking up the long overdue reissue of Black Death on Hells Headbangers in the coming days.
