Hey and thanks for joining us today!
“Kicking and Screaming” was your first release in several years. Did you feel that it was important to take a break from your musical career, to explore other artistical interests? Was that to show people that Sebastian Bach was not a one-dimensional character?
Sebastian Bach - Well actually we put out the record “Angel Down” in late 2007, and “Kicking and Screaming” came out in 2011. I don’t think in this day and age when CD sales are down that is too long. You can’t really put a time limit on something that you are creating as it can only come out when it is done. It is the same for writing books, doing music or making a movie, you can not put it out when it is not finished. Once I have 13 songs that I am really proud of then it’s finished.
I am really proud of the record.”
What can Sebastian Bach do that no-one else can?!
Sebastian - I can sing the ending of “I remember you” just like the record! Actually Carrie Underwood can do that too, but not like the record. She can do a pretty good job!
Have you ever been the subject of an internet hoax death rumour?
Sebastian - Yes! There is actually a site that I have been in contact with, trying to get them to take it down! If you Google that it says I am dead, it’s from Montreal Canada. I’m like ‘Fuck You!’!
Who is writing this email?…Is it my hologram?!
What in your life are you most proud of, either personally or creatively?
Sebastian – Creatively I was really proud of ” Jekyll and Hyde” the musical because it was something totally different that I had never done. Personally, recently I gave up drinking alcohol which is a major life change that I had never tried to do before. Once I tried then I went on tour with Guns N Roses and that was that. I’m feeling pretty proud that I’ve been off it about a month.
It is difficult as it kind of goes with ‘Rock and Roll’ which I have been doing all my life.
I think though that maybe that is a copout to say that. You could be a doctor or a lawyer and still have a problem with alcohol or drugs. I think that it is a personal choice. As somebody very close to me….
