On December 10, Dani Buarque of the “Lokaos Rock Show” conducted an interview with former MANOWAR guitarist Ross “The Boss” Friedman prior to his concert at Manifesto Bar in São Paulo, Brazil. You can now watch the chat below.
Friedman released the second album under the ROSS THE BOSS banner, “Hailstorm”, in Europe on November 1, 2010 via AFM Records (three days earlier in Germany).
One of the great metal guitarists, Ross The Boss first made his name with THE DICTATORS, before briefly teaming up with French band SHAKIN’ STREET. But in more recent times, he became renowned for his work with MANOWAR. A founding member, Ross recorded six albums with the band, before leaving after 1988’s “Kings Of Metal”. Since then he’s worked with MANITOBA’S WILD KINGDOM, BRAIN SURGEONS and THE SPINATRAS. Now he’s back doing what he does best — playing loud, true heavy metal while backed by a band featuring vocalist Patrick Fuchs, bassist Carsten Kettering and drummer Matthias Mayer.
