30 YEARS OF ROADRUNNER- WE SPEAK TO JB

Posted on December 24, 2010

It’s time for Roadrunner newcomers GRAND MAGUS to give us their contribution to our 30th Anniversary series and below, front man JB gives us a quick run through his 30 years Q&A…

In 30 years you will be…
In Valhalla!

Best music moments of the last 30 years…
Fucking hell! Yngwie Malmsteen’s solo on “I’m a Viking”

Highlight of your career thus far
Really that we’ve stuck together as a band and been brave enough to follow our hearts and instincts all the way instead of being led by others AND seeing that it pays off.

Crappiest moment in music in the last 30 years
When poser bands dress up and try to act like they are “metal”, because it is suddenly “fashion”. You can’t become metal. You are or you’re not. Sorry.

Album from your generation that will be legendary in 30 years
GRAND MAGUS – HAMMER OF THE NORTH

Name a Roadrunner classic artist
KING DIAMOND

What makes them a classic?
In my book, MERCYFUL FATE and later KING with his own band were the first to combine truly occult topics with original, accomplished, catchy metal. Some of the best playing ever on those early KING DIAMOND records, ABIGAIL and THEM.

Grand Magus’ current album Hammer Of The North is in stores now. Pick it up on line at Play.com and iTunes.
