SEBASTIAN BACH: Why AXL ROSE Acts The Way He Does
Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach was interviewed on the August 31, 2010 edition of “The Danny Bonaduce Show” on the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania radio station 94 WYSP. The chat is now available for streaming using the audio player below.
During the interview, Sebastian spoke briefly about how GUNS N’ ROSES singer — and Bach‘s close friend and frequent tourmate — Axl Rose is often being portrayed unfavorably by the media. “Nobody has helped me more in the music industry than Axl Rose,” Sebastian said.
“Axl… That sounds comes from somewhere. And it’s not…
“Everybody has all these theories as to why he acts the way he acts. And there’s no big mystery. He tells me the source of all of the insanity — it’s his voice. It’s his job to sing like that, and sometimes that sound is hard for him. And a lot of singers, you know… To sing in that range is just not an easy thing to do. And he does what he can, and if it takes him forty-five more minutes to warm up his pipes so he can sing ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’… I mean, you drive around in your car and put on GUNS N’ ROSES and just go for it. [Laughs]”
Bach will support GUNS N’ ROSES on a U.K. tour in October.
The singer recently posted 100 new photographs, including shots from the set of JOHN RICH‘s video shoot for his new single, “Country Done Come To Town”, and pictures from Bach‘s recent trip to Norway to perform at the Norway Rock festival.
Bach is currently working on material for his next solo album, which he expects to release sometime in 2011.
Although nothing has been confirmed yet, Sebastian‘s new CD will likely be made available through Sony Music in Japan.
Bach‘s current solo band includes guitarists Nick Sterling and Johnny Chromatic, drummer Bobby Jarzombek and bassist Rob DeLuca.
Sebastian last year collaborated with HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta on several tracks for Bach‘s new solo album, with Nick and Charlie Bellmore of the Connecticut band PHANTOMS assisting during the pre-production process. The singer has also written material with John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON).
