If you’re not constantly messing with the other guys in your band, are you even really a band?
At their show in Stockholm, Sweden, on March 9th, Avenged Sevenfold bassist Johnny Christ pranked guitarist Synyster Gates by shifting the pitch of Gates’ vocals in his in-ear monitors to give him that unmistakable “Chipmunks” voice!
“The pranks between me and Syn keep one-upping each other,” Christ says in the video. “I had one that I thought was a pretty good one.”
“The idea was when he went to go sing in ‘A Little Piece Of Heaven,’ you would hear his voice come through in a chipmunk voice. The best part about it was that he would think it was going out into crowd as well. Lo and behold, it would only be for us.”
