What was the biggest fun during the making of the last album?
Going to Gothenburg to record with Chips and Henryk. Sweating it out during takes. Cooking tasty dinners and drinking lots of beer with only music in our heads. It was all great!
If we want to know you, which song do we have to listen to? And why?
“Divided Feelings”, because it’s our first single from the new album “It’s A Mouthful”. The song is very melodic, very powerful with great guitar solos, lead and backing vocals. The energy is just right!
The music industry has changed a lot (or so they say). What did it bring you? And what not?
Well it didn’t bring us record sales, that’s for sure. However, with youtube and Spotify it’s easier to bring our songs and music videos to our fans. We don’t have to have MTV play our video… although that would’ve been cool 🙂
Who is the best musician in the world nobody has heard of yet? And why will this change very soon?
Oh my… that’s a tough one. Well, I can say anyone in my band I guess. Chris is a hell of a guitar player, singer and songwriter. Zack has a great voice and lovely tone in his guitar playing. Our new drummer Vinnie is not kidding around either… He means business. You put all that together with my enthusiasm and that’s why it’s gonna change.
She tells you she will decide on a 5-song-mixt tape if there is going to be a second date. Which 5 would you put on?
The Hellacopters – Gotta Get Some Action
W.A.S.P. – Animal (F**k Like A Beast)
Howlin’ Wolf – Back Door Man
KISS – Love’Em Leave’Em
Black’N Blue – Nasty Nasty.
What’s up for the next couple of months?
We’re gonna put together a new music video soon. Then we’ll get out there and play! After the summer we might start working on the next album. Something’s always happening so keep looking back at www.captainblackbeard.net and www.facebook.com/CaptainBlackBeardBand
