Synyster Gates shared what his sweatiest concert ever was, one item he’ll carry with him all Summer, tips for winning over a crowd, advice for bands just starting to play live and more with Guitar World for their 2014 Summer Tour Survival Guide.

Your sweatiest concert ever?
Definitely the 2004 Warped Tour when we played in Arizona. I think it got up to 127 degrees, and I remember feeling like I was going to faint. Just god awful. So we drank a bunch of margaritas to keep us extremely sedated.

One item you will carry with you at all times this summer?
A ProTools rig strapped to my back, literally. It keeps me sane, writing a bunch of different stuff like classical stuff or any guitar stuff. I don’t like being locked in a cage on the creative scale. I need an outlet.

Tips for winning over a tough crowd?
You just have to be confident. Don’t give ’em anything to further their disapproval. Just go up there, rock out, and act like it’s a base of your fans. And don’t scream and yell at them.
