Volbeat Would Have Inspired Elvis To 'Smash His Record Player'

(New Rock Times) Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen believes that Elvis Pressley might want to 'smash his record player with a hammer' to escape some of Volbeat's songs.

The singer is a well known fan of the original King of Rock N' Roll but he is unsure if the musical love would be reciprocated if the King were alive today. "Oh I don't know," smiles Poulsen. "I think he might like and be able to relate to some of our songs but some others he might feel like smashing his record player with a hammer."

Speaking to Eric Mackinnon of the New Rock Times about his great musical loves, many of which have been inked onto his skin, he admits to finding it surreal when fans initially showed him their Volbeat tattoos.

The Volbeat singer has tributes to Elvis Pressley, Johnny Cash and Social Distortion etched on his own body so he while he can relate to fans following suit with tributes to his own band it still leaves him surprised. Read more here.
