In a new interview with Metal Meltdown, drummer Ted Kirkpatrick of Christian metallers TOURNIQUET discusses, among other things, working with MARTY FRIEDMAN on the band's new album, Antiseptic Bloodbath (Pathogenic Records).
"Marty is a friend of mine. He's an incredibly talented guitarist. You could count on, in my opinion, two hands the guitarists out there that can play like three notes, and it's like, 'Oh my gosh, that's Marty Friedman. I know who that is.' There's Robin Trauer - would be another one like that. You hear Eddie Van Halen play a few notes like, 'Ah - I know who that is.' Marty's one of those guys, but he's a very humble, good friend of mine."
