The leader of Trans-Siberian Orchestra reveals the magic of big cats

Tiger uppercut: The shirt that ruined Jay Whitecotton's life.


It has nothing to do with Christmas and everything to do with TSO. It is a black & white Siberian tiger and it has a great deal of meaning for me. My daughter was born shortly before TSO started touring, and always slept with a stuffed toy black and white Siberian tiger she called "Snow." I always considered my guitars living things, and the tiger had accidentally scratched it, like my dog would sometimes accidentally scratch me. The band's artist, the legendary Greg Hildebrant (who did, among many other things, the first Star Wars poster and many of the iconic paintings for Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit), painted it as Trans-Siberian's logo. You see — the only proper use of power is to protect the weak and vulnerable. The tiger is not threatening but protecting the music, which has the ability to heal wounds to the soul (as doctors have the ability to heal wounds to the body) and [to heal] anyone else in need of protection from evil, apathy, or indifference.

Um... OK. Cool. So, I guess... How's the big tour?
