Those who have seen the classic The Decline of the Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years (1988), will most likely remember watching former W.A.S.P guitarist Chris Holmes sitting in a swimming pool downing a bottle of vodka as his mom looks on. It’s safe to say that it’s one of the most iconic interviews captured on video. Aside from the film being a defining look at the Sunset Strip scene of the late ’80s, many continue to watch it just to see Holmes. The trilogy is available on Amazon and if you haven’t yet, it’s well worth the purchase.
In a brand new interview, thanks to Duke TV, Holmes returned to the pool nearly thirty years later, this time without the vodka.
