Incubus aren't exactly a small band playing small clubs, and due to the size of the venues they're playing, they really want to make an impression on their audiences. Clearly there's only one way to do that – borrow Iron Maiden's Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son tour production.
In an interview with Forbes, vocalist Brandon Boyd and guitarist Mike Einziger say they keep asking Iron Maiden to borrow that very tour production. Iron Maiden keeps saying no, but Incubus sure as hell keeps trying anyway.
Einziger: One of our longtime production team members used to work with Iron Maiden and we asked if we could borrow Eddie.
Boyd: We do it every two years and they said no every time. Right around every two years we ask Iron Maiden if we can take their Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son tour production out, cause it's just sitting there in storage, and they say no. We're gonna ask. It's like the woman you love and you profess your love to. You keep asking her to marry you and she keeps saying no. One of these days she might change her mind.
Einziger: The first time we asked was a really long time ago, like 2000, 2001. We're like, "They'll let us do it, right?" No.
Boyd: We're a big band now, we want Iron Maiden's stuff (crack up).
Maybe Incubus and Iron Maiden can get on the same bill and trade off tour production?
