It’s always nice to talk to Sebastian Bach but you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get. It’s always a toss up. Check out this interview on the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods Black Carpet. He’s cool and talks about what’s going on with his recently released Live DVD and the new album he’s working on, but watch his reaction when I ask about the old Skid Row songs. (Insert cricket sounds after the question) I honestly thought he was going to start hurling insults for asking him about those songs. Funny thing is, when he presented an award later that night at the Golden Gods Awards, the first thing he did was mention three Skid Row songs. Sebastian is cool though and he’s always nice when I run into him. Enjoy!!!

It’s been a difficult past year for Queensryche. They parted ways with original singer Geoff Tate and brought Todd La Torre on board as their new lead singer. After some legal battles they are ready to release their new album on June 25th, simply titled, Queensryche. Check out this very forthcoming and honest interview.

It’s always fun to run into Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. He’s always funny and never lacks confidence as you’ll hear in this interview. He was nominated for the Paul Grey Best Bassist Award at the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods Awards.
