Stone Cold Steve Austin Shares Praise For His Favorite Metal Bands


Hellraising former pro-wrestling champion “Stone Cold” Steve Austin recently took part in Metal Hammer‘s ‘The 10 Albums That Changed My Life‘ feature and as it turns out, a lot of classic metal album’s left a big mark on ‘The Texas Rattlesnake.’ Among his choices are Judas Priest‘s “Screaming For Vengeance“, Guns N’ Roses‘ “Appetite For Destruction” as well as works from AC/DC, Kiss and more. Should you find his choices a bit pedestrian for, he also digs in a slight bit deeper, sharing the following of Saxon:

“…They never got enough credit, man! They’re badass! Biff always had the pipes, he could sing his ass off, and they have a badass guitarist, I loved his tone. I always wondered why they weren’t bigger than they were, because if you look at all the bands we’ve been talking about, they all love Saxon!”

You can find the whole feature over at Metal Hammer.
