Ross The Boss Interview

***TRANSLATION BUTTON BELOW***

Hallo Rocker!

Leibertingen-Kreenheinstetten sagt Euch nichts? Das sollte sich ändern! Die Reuter-und-Schmieder-Event-GbR bringt nämlich MANOWAR-Mitgründer ROSS THE BOSS in das beschauliche Dorf!

Da mein Herz auch als Neu-Berlinerin am Süden Deutschlands hängt, bin ich dieses Jahr erstmals als offizieller Medienpartner dabei und habe Ross Friedman für Euch interviewt. Keine Sorge, mit dem Button am Ende der Seite, könnt Ihr das Interview ganz einfach übersetzen lassen – einfach kurz runterscrollen.

Ross the Boss (3)

COMEBACKSTAGE:
Hi Ross, nice to meet you! How are you doing? How’s the tour going so far?

Ross The Boss:
Very well, We’re in the US/Canada doing shows. Everywhere it’s still snowing… in March! We’re getting used to it, but the public has been fantastic.

COMEBACKSTAGE:
Tell me the story of the „Ross The Boss“ band – how did you get together, how did it all start?

Ross The Boss:
I started at the Keep it True Festival as the secret unannounced guest and the place went wild. Was it two years ago? And a subsequent tour was booked. I added a new lineup and that’s what we have today.

COMEBACKSTAGE:
And now you will be releasing your new record „By Blood Sworn“ at your show in Leibertingen-Kreenheinstetten. Why did you decide to release it during this event?

Ross The Boss:
Thats the date that AFM Records decided to release the record and it so happens that we are playing that show there.

COMEBACKSTAGE:
What can the fans expect from it?

Ross The Boss:
Ten amazing new originals. Three absolute killer makeovers of Manowar classics.

COMEBACKSTAGE:
Tell me the story behind the lyrics of „We Are the Night„.

Ross The Boss:
Marc Lopes wrote the lyrics and its about witches and werewolves, can you imagine?

COMEBACKSTAGE:
You’re very experienced in the music industry. What advice would you give to a young band who wants to make it big one day?

Ross The Boss:
Follow your heart. Do not listen to anyone but yourselves. Don’t sign anything.

You played massive venues with MANOWAR – how is it for you to play smaller clubs now and what do you like especially about it?
