Max Cavalera

maxcav1. First album you heard that made you fall in love with heavy metal?

It was Queen – Live Killers. My cousin bought it for me after I saw Queen in Brazil.

2. What’s your poison these days?

Rum and coke – anything with hard liquor.

3. Grossest touring habit of anyone you’ve toured with?

Igor, my brother. When we were in Sepultura he would hang the socks and gloves he played in up in the bus and brown liquid would drip out of them – it made me sick – disgusting man.

4. Weirdest fan encounter or request?

One guy asked me to sign his baby’s forehead. It was a quiet nice baby, maybe six months old wrapped in a blanket, the guy gave me a Sharpie and was like “sign my baby’s forehead”, it was weird but I did it.

5. If a kid asks you “what’s heavy metal?” which album do you hand them?

Ace of Spades, give them a good dose of Motorhead metal.
