During the recent interview with 105.1 The Blaze radio, Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale has shared how she got into heavy metal when she was 17.
“I go to a lot of metal shows when we’re home. I don’t know why, but it takes me back to when I was 17 and going to the local metal shows in Pennsylvania.
I go right back to that mentality. I don’t get involved in the moshpit anymore, but I stand right outside of it, just to feel it. It’s amazing.“
She also talked about WWE’s female event “Evolution” and said:
“This is super special. When they approached me about doing this, they’re like, ‘Hey, we’re also talking to Nita [Strauss].’ I’m like, ‘That’s great, because Nita and I have been friends for years and we still haven’t done anything together.’ It took WWE to bring us together and do something.
They have a small songwriting team that writes all the theme songs for the wrestlers, and they’re like, ‘We literally just wrote this two-minute-and-thirteen-second song just for you and for Nita.’ They explained it to me like, ‘We took your top five songs that you have on Spotify and we made the key to match those songs, so it’s right in your wheelhouse, and here’s this guitar riff that sounds like something that you would play.’ I’m like, ‘Awesome! Cool! Thank you so much!’ It was so sweet and so nice.
The entire wrestling community is so awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever walked into an organization before, whether it be band or anything else, where from the moment you step on the grounds you’re treated like family, like you’ve been there the entire time. What a cool thing to be a part of.”
