Canada’s The Metal Voice recently spoke with ex-IRON MAIDEN current ARCHITECTS OF CHAOZ singer Paul Di’anno.
When asked about the charity song he will be recording for the Paris shooting victims with an all star band
“I got an e-mail from a good friend (Stephan Honde) of mine who has been in a band in France called Stars. And we came up with this idea to make some money for the Paris victims and we are going to do David Bowie’s Heroes. We got a couple of the old usual suspects like Rudy Sarzo (ex–Ozzy Osbourne, ex -Quiet Riot). Apparently we got Simon Kirke Bad Company) to come do it for free.
It’s kind of scary at the moment as musicians are being targeted as well. So we want to get this thing out and you can download it and the money goes to charity thing to help the poor victims.
When asked if he would play Paris tomorrow
When asked about being given counterfeit money in Argentina as payment and the police knocking at his door
“I came back from Argentina , I tried to change some dollars over there cause Peso is worth nothing and no one wants Argentinean money and they gave me dollars and I went back to England and I put some of it in my bank and they fucken stopped me and the dollars were all fake. Then the cops were knocking at my door with a search warrant, to see if I’m some sort of money launderer or drug smuggler. I still have the warrant I carry it in my pocket as a reminder. So they froze my bank account. It was not the main Argentina promoters who did it, it was the other promoters from the other towns we played in to pay us on an extend tour. When you come back and you got strange money you don’t really look at the serial numbers. Who does that? I might be going to court.”
When asked about if Architects of Chaoz will be writing any new Material
We are still writing at the moment we have 17 songs with Architects , me and Joey have this weird connection we seems to know what each other’s is thinking and we started writing ahead of time we want to make another record not until the end of next year, it’s always good to have songs in hand trying to keep some themes going
