Affliction Clothing's web channel "Affliction Vision" sent OZZY OSBOURNE/ex-ROB ZOMBIE bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson to this year's NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, which was held January 14-17, 2010 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. His interview with vocalist Mitch Lucker of California deathcore masters SUICIDE SILENCE can be viewed below.

When asked about SUICIDE SILENCE's early departure from MEGADETH's recent U.S. headlining tour, Lucker replied, "I think the whole situation was funny. It's basic — [MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine] wanted our laminates back because we were getting people in, we were passing our laminates out. We were getting our friends in because we were only allowed, like, 10 people on the guest list. We were just doing that — getting people in — and he thought it was a risk to his dressing room, which it could have been; some superfan could have gone in there and done god knows what. And the situation went from that to him wanting our laminates back, and it was, like, the last day of tour. And we were just like, 'You know what? I like this [grabbing his pass]. Sorry.' And it turned out bad. But fuck it. It was still a fun tour."

SUICIDE SILENCE was a no-show on December 12, 2009 in Reno, Nevada, which served as the second-to-last stop on MEGADETH's tour. At the time, SUICIDE SILENCE drummer Alex Lopez posted a message on his Twitter page, stating, "Dave Mustaine kicked us off the MEGADETH tour [because] he wanted to take our laminates for a little incident [some] weeks ago, so we told him to fuck off." That Tweet has since been removed. SUICIDE SILENCE bassist Dan Kenny followed it up by writing on his own Twitter page. "I would love a fistfight with Dave Mustaine." Kenny, a mixed martial artists enthusiast, added, "I hear [Dave] is quite good at MMA; I would triangle him in a second!"
