Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto stopped by our offices when the band played New York on February 18 (see a photo gallery from that show), and answered all the questions we had about his instrument. In this video, he talks about when and why he started playing bass, whether he'd ever play an upright with Trivium, his endorsement deal with B.C. Rich, his practice regimen (and some tips for other players), what the hardest Trivium song is for him to play, and more. Enjoy!

Trivium are in Australia this week, playing the Soundwave Festival, but they'll be back on the road in North America later this month with Asking Alexandria, The Amity Affliction, and more.
