Sin City Presents Magazine January 2019 Volume 6 Issue 1 - Page 30


You recently announced an upcoming gig with L.A. Guns for the M3 Festival, is this a onetime gig or can we look forward to more with you and L.A. Guns?

Well, right now it’s just this one gig. But I’m on for as many as I get called for. For the past month I’ve been playing guitar like crazy learning all these Tracii Guns licks! If it’s all for one gig, so be it, but it’d be nice to get some more mileage out of it.

And just in case anyone is wondering, this version features original members Steve Riley on drums and Kelly Nickels on bass. I can’t say anything about who’s singing yet. But you’ll find out soon.

Congrats on the new album with Sin City Rejects! Word on the street is one of the tracks got picked by a movie… can you tell us a little more?

We’re in negotiations regarding having our song “23” put in a movie, but nothing is final right now. Funny thing is, I knew right when me and Jason (Green, my bassist and co-writer) started writing “23”, it would be the song chosen for a movie if one was ever picked.

Sin City Sinners, All-Stars and Rejects… what’s the connection? Or is there one?

Well, Sin City Sinners is a band Jason Green has managed from the beginning.

As with pretty much every band I’ve been in for the last 10 to 15 years, there’s the “original” version, there’s the “classic” version, and then there’s all the other versions that came after that.

I think Jason started adding the tag “All-Stars” to signify that the Sinners now often features members from National acts.
