A7X guitarist reveals his own nightmare

Three words said in sequence are enough to give Avenged Sevenfold's Zacky Vengeance his own nightmare.

The guitarist spoke this week to the Irish Times and admitted hearing President Donald Trump was something which did not sit comfortably with him.

“It's a very scary phrase,” he confessed.

“Time will tell, but all I can hope for is that Americans and people across the entire world, aside from whoever is the president, do right by each other.

“Because, at the end of the day, all my relationships here with people from all places of the world, only I can influence those today and tomorrow. It is really up to me. That guy [Trump] can do what he pleases, but as long as the majority of people stick together and try and be good people to each other, then I think all of that will be irrelevant.”

Donald Trump, whose mother was from the village of Tong on the Scottish Isle of Lewis, stunned the world when he stormed to victory in the US presidential election, trumping, pardon the pun, the favourite Hilary Clinton to become the 45th president of the United States.
