Greece’s Rock Overdose recently conducted an interview with former MANOWAR guitarist Ross “The Boss” Friedman. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
Ross “The Boss” 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).
The song “Kingdom Arise” can now be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
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 Carl Ketterling and drummer Matthias Mayer.
