I’d never ever satisfy any of the 3 initial members of Skid Row prior to I did an interview with Rachel Bolan in 2015, and given that we’ve ended up being pals. Great men, killer band to this day!
Rachel and “Snake” Sabo joined me as we spoke about the previous year, which discovered the men including a brand-new vocalist, tape-recording a remarkable album, and striking the roadway non-stop. To state it’s been a whirlwind of a year would be an understatement. We speak about seeing KISS for the very first time and how that performance altered Snake’s life. Since I did this interview on 3/13, which is Detroit’s primary location code, I asked the men what the city has actually indicated to them. “The Motown thing had such a huge influence on my growing up” Snake informed me.
Are they dealing with brand-new music? Yes. Rachel said they’ve never ever begun composing this early after launching brand-new product simply last fall. They speak about vocalist, Erik Gronwall, and his training and love for traditional music.
I asked about the ’18 and Life’ contest. They explain that, that traditional tune and more.
If you’re in the southeast Michigan location, they’re playing the Motor City Casino Soundboard with Buckcherry on Wednesday, March 15th. I’ll see you there!
Kow Wetzel is next. Is he a nation man dipping his toes into the rock world, or the other method around? We speak about, along with partying at Kid Rock’s house in Nashville, his criminal affects, why his music seems like it does and lots more.
He’s playing a sold-out program at the Masonic Temple in Detroit on March 25th.
