The interviewer asks Holmes, “Is it safe to say you wouldn’t ever join W.A.S.P. again?”
Holmes answers with, “Never say never. Never say never. I am half of W.A.S.P. – I was half of the situation. Even though I am not the voice, I was the driving force of that thing.”
The interview is interesting for sure and takes a few odd turns. “You ever seen 50 Cent?” Holmes asks the interviewer, “He looks like he has to go poop, like he’s constipated.”
Then Holmes in the middle of talking about his history of touring Finland and talking at length about how he ended up moving to the area suddenly asks, “Is ABBA finished?”
The interviewer and his wife both jump in to inform him, “They are Swedish.” Chris continues, “I would be great with them, they would be great singing “Fuck Like A Beast” those 2 girls singing FUCK LIKE A BEAST!“
