After the awesome show at Sweden Rock Festival, I’ve had some huge cravings for more Sebastian Bach. And yes, I have been a bit skeptic toward the album Kicking And Screaming, but I decided it was time to give it a chance. Just like Allyson, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the title song when I first heard it. But it has grown on me and I thought it was time to let the whole album do that as well, so I bought it.
As you all know, the album artwork is a bit odd, but inside the cover I found something that made me laugh even more – Sebastian Bach on cowbell.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there’s a lot of effort behind the cowbell on this record. But giving yourself credit for playing it on your solo album? Is it really necessary? Who else would get the credit if he didn’t write it? And is there even a thing called ”getting credit for playing the cowbell?"
That surely made me laugh for quite a while. And then I even felt a bit sad. Standing next to guitarist Nick Sterling, who plays almost every instrument and also wrote most of the songs, it just looks desperate. At least to me. What do you think? And what do you think of the album?
And also, this past weekend we celebrated ”Midsummer” in Sweden, which of course included ”Små grodorna” (”Small frogs”) – a song that apparently even Sebastian Bach knows. Here’s a clip of him performing with Dee Snider at Sweden Rock Festival, and also surprising the crowd with the midsummer anthem.
