Sebastian Bach: "Making albums is a crazy process of heartache and trial and tribulation"


Sebastian Bach was recently interviewed by Spotlight Report, you can read some excerpts below.


About the positive reaction to his latest solo album, "Give 'Em Hell", Bach said: "It's so hard to explain to somebody who doesn't make records what making records is. You go into a room with nothing, right? And you're supposed to come out of there a couple of weeks later with like 13 tunes that blow the whole world away… It's, like, go try it. It's not easy. It's a fuckin' crazy process of heartache and trial and tribulation and hurting people's feelings. It's not an easy thing. You know, nothing good comes easy. But when I feel proud of an album, I am confident that when you press play, it's going to whoop your fuckin' ass. And every time, I'm like, 'Damn! This is some heavy shit!'"

He continued: "The songs that people are really relating to are 'Temptation' and 'All My Friends Are Dead'. 'Push Away' we did a couple of times live and everybody loves that song live. And I can hit those notes live, which I don't understand whatsoever. I thought, 'There's no way I can do that song live,' but, for some reason, I can do it. Then, when I go on iTunes, it has the ratings of the most downloaded tunes of your album and the most downloaded song is 'Hell Inside My Head', so who knows? That's the most downloaded tune. It's weird. I'll take it."
