We caught up with Lacuna Coil frontman Andrea Ferro in San Francisco last night, before their opening slot for the mighty Sevendust and Coal Chamber.

Andrea was a talker — and we love that!  He told us about the band’s recent tenure on last year’s 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise, then dove into the always-complex issue of downloading vs. buying in the U.S. and Europe, and also touched upon things that bands today have to deal with as opposed to 15 years ago when Lacuna Coil first started out.

And if you listen real hard, you may be able catch frontwoman Cristina Scabbia‘s interview that was going on right behind us!
