MASTODON’s BRENT HINDS: I Told ANGUS YOUNG He Was My Favorite Guitarist Ever. He Told Me To Stop Pissing In His Pocket

MASTODON’s Brent Hinds: ‘Who In Their Right Mind Thinks JUDAS PRIEST Is A Metal Band?!’

During a recent appearance on Let There Be TalkMASTODON guitarist Brent Hinds shared a peculiar story of meeting one of his ultimate guitar heroes, Angus Young from AC/DC. Hinds said (as transcribed by Ultimate-Guitar.com):

Angus Young was my original first favorite guitar player. And then I met him and I told him that he was my favorite guitar player. And he told me to stop pissing in his pocket. So I told him, ‘Fuck off’ or something. ‘Whatever, fuck you.'”

He explains: “We were at the Golden God Awards and one of my liaisons was like… I was supposed to take Angus Young to the bathroom. ‘I know you’re a huge fan, take him to the bathroom.’

“So I take him, like grab his arm and take him to the bathroom. I was waiting for him and I was like, ‘Hey man, I just want to thank you for your work.’

“And he just looks at me like I’ve got shit on my face or something. ‘I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you.’ And he said, ‘What are you talking about?’ I’m like, ‘I started playing guitar because of you.’

“And he’s like, ‘Quit pissing in my pocket.’ I was like, ‘Fuck you,’ basically. I say, ‘Your pocket is way too far down there to piss in.”
