Asked by Artist Direct
what he likes about the character Doc Holliday, vocalist and lyricist Michael Poulsen
replied: "If you're into gunslinger and cowboy stories, everybody knows Doc Holliday. At least they should, if you ask me."
"There are so many of those characters," he continued. "I grew up reading about Billy the Kid and Wyatt Earp. I thought, 'Even though they're tremendous and so exciting, do we really need another story about Billy the Kid or Wyatt Earp?' I tried to take some of the characters people haven't heard that much about and follow them. There are some who know about Doc, but there are a lot of people who don't. Not many know about Black Bart
, and I think he's one of the most interesting characters. It comes from watching movies, reading books, and being very nerdy about it. I love it."
