ALICE COOPER bassist Chuck Garric, who also has his own band BEASTO BLANCO, is featured in a new interview with Legendary rock Interviews. An excerpt is available below:
LRI: I am diggin' Beasto Blanco. How did this project come to be?
Chuck: "It’s a brand new thing that’s been burnin inside my blood for the last couple of years and I’m really excited about it. I’ve always been a songwriter and I’ve always sang and have wanted to do my own project for a long time now. I came across Tommy Henriksen who worked with us on Alice’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare record and we started talking about doing some new material. As soon as he and I started talking about it was about the time it started taking on a life for me. I got really excited about the concept of getting into the studio and making these songs come to life. We really didn’t know what the identity of the band would be like going into it or what to expect but we had a blast and it just turned out absolutely killer. The three songs are available now on iTunes and Amazon and all that but we are already in the process of working on a full length release soon. The response thus far, since we launched the website and put the tunes out there, has been really, really good. The Alice fans, the hard rock fans, everyone is really diggin it and excited to hear more."
LRI: Orianthi (Alice Cooper guitarist) has her own solo work and you’re both able to stay in that high profile limelight with Alice. Is it me or does that just speak volumes about Alice Cooper as an individual?
Chuck: "Yeah, yeah it does. Alice is not threatened by anybody or anything, he has always just conquered. He always has and he always will. He has a real high self-confidence and believes in what he’s doing so it doesn’t matter what anyone else in the band does because he has so much conviction in his own thing. When Alice brought any of us in, he knew we were talented and he believed in us and he continues to believe in us. Any time Alice gets a chance to talk about Beasto Blanco on his radio show, Nights With Alice Cooper, he’s all about it. He really believes in us and our projects. Calico Cooper, his daughter, sings background vocals on our lead single and video, 'Breakdown', which was awesome and he’s just a very supportive dude. Obviously when we’re out there touring Alice Cooper comes first but in the meantime or the downtime he is more than willing to do whatever it takes to make sure we’re all happy and successful. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about."
