Barbara Caserta of Italian web radio Linearock.it conducted an interview with former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach after his June 22 performance at this year’s Gods Of Metal festival in Milan, Italy.
As previously reported, Bach “lost” his microphone while spinning it around in the air during the opening song of his Gods Of Metal concert. Bach and his band briefly stopped the show while his microphone was getting fixed and restarted the set a few minutes later.
Speaking about the incident, Bach told Linearock.it, “It was funny, because I ran out there. My [In-Ear monitor] wasn’t working; it snapped off. My monitor man snapped it back on, and then I ran out there and I missed the first word, ’cause I was fucking around with my ear. Then I was [spinning] the mic around and the cord shredded. I was like, ‘How is that possible?’ It’s happened, like, once or twice [before], but in 25 years. I’m lucky that the microphone didn’t hit anyone; I don’t want anybody to get hurt. But I don’t understand in physics how you can whip the mic so hard that the cord shreds. The mic didn’t come off the cord — the cord shredded.”
Bach lat month released a video for the song “I’m Alive”. The clip is one of three videos (alongside “Kicking Screaming” and “TunnelVision”) that the singer filmed on June 28, 2011 in Hollywood, California with director Devin DeHaven of Fortress Entertainment (PAPA ROACH, WHITESNAKE, METHOD MAN, TALIB KWELI).
“I’m Alive” comes off Bach‘s new album, “Kicking Screaming”, which sold 6,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart. The singer’s previous CD, “Angel Down”, opened with 6,400 units back in November 2007 to debut at No. 190.
