“I wish everybody that recognized me would buy the record. Then we’d be as big as Adele,” said Scott Ian on an interview with New-Press.com.”I get recognized everywhere in public… But nine times out of ten, it’s people who recognize my face but they really have no clue. I wish there was a way to make this happen: ‘Oh, you want a picture? Okay, well buy the record right now and we’ll take a photo.’ You know, what do I get out of it?” He added: “Trust me: I can tell the difference between a person who’s really into the band and someone who’s walking up to me because they probably saw me on VH1 for half a second and they think they’re about to meet somebody famous,” he said. “And I do my best not to destroy their hopes and dreams in those situations. If it’s a fan, it’s a completely different story. The experience will probably be much better for that person. And people may think, ‘Well, how can you tell?’ Trust me: You can tell. When someone’s asking, ‘I recognize you. Where would I know you from?’ And I’m like, you know what, it’s really not my responsibility to answer that question. It’s not up to me to finish that sentence. It’s up to you”. And he concluded: “I just feel like if you are going to approach somebody — which is something I never do — but if you are going to approach somebody, you should know who you’re talking to. I don’t think that’s a lot to ask.”
