With the single crossing over to pop radio, it's bringing out new people to the shows. We've got all our metal kids and punk kids who still love us. And then we've got the average joes coming out. We call our fans the 'mixed nuts' because it's all kinds of people out there.
Pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar, / Where are you now? Who lies beneath your spell?
Soul meets soul on lovers' lips.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
