I am a music enthusiast with a deep love for the energy of crowded venues, loud music, & passionate fans. I have a diverse background that includes private security, talent buying, festival security planning, & media relations. I've also worked as a camera operator for various projects, including music videos featuring notable artists like Bernz, Tech N9ne, & Krizz Kaliko. Additionally, I am a camera operator for Full Moon Features, where I contribute to the production of horror movies.

Among the most famous musicians of today, Motionless In White singer, Chris Motionless is known for his Metallica fandom and respect for the singer’s genre. During a recent on-AirWired RadioActive Mike Z chat with KCAL 96.7 Wired, he was invited to share which classic Metallica song he asks the band to cover.

“I would absolutely do my favorite Metallica song ever, which is ‘The Shortest Straw’ from …And Justice for All,” says Motionless. “That is, in my opinion, one of the more angrier, if not the angriest Metallica song.”

The singer goes on to add, “In my opinion, [that is] their darkest, heaviest, most angry record. But that song, to me, just has some sort of aggressiveness that just sunk its teeth into me. It’s my favorite, and I would love to cover it.”

Motionless has no problem playing covers of Metallica’s “My Friend of Misery.” In 2015, he played in the compilation for Kerrang! magazine’s tribute to Metallica’s Black Album.

While Motionless has found his reverence for Metallica, Motionless in White created a career with their own merit that continues to amaze people today. Motionless in White is currently on the Trinity of Terror Tour featuring Black Veil Brides, Motionless In White & Ice Nine Kills. For more info, visit here.
