In a rare and candid WVOX Metal Mayhem radio show interview, former W.A.S.P., Steeler and SIN bassist Rik Fox held nothing back and revealed all to host Matthew O'Shaughnessy recently, about many highly interesting topics surrounding the New York born and raised Fox and his days in the aforementioned three groups. Ever forthcoming, Rik Fox has been active on the rock scene dating back to the NY/NJ mid-1970's, and packed up his bass in early 1982 from New York and headed for the bright lights of Los Angeles. During the WVOX interview, Fox tells O'Shaughnessy about the now legendary and infamous original three-track W.A.S.P. demo and his involvement in the very first original lineup of the famed group.
"In my case of being dismissed by band leader Blackie Lawless as an original founding member, let's face the unavoidable facts; not to mention the painfully obvious actual band photos showing me in the original line-up, the W.A.S.P. demo is solid evidence and documentation to the contrary, and my bass tracks are nothing if not solid and in the pocket, if not even more melodic than Blackie's attempt on the first W.A.S.P. album of the same songs!" says Fox. “I have no reason to lie about my tenure in the band...lying is such an ugly business and there's no profit in it, so why not just tell the truth."
During the on air chat, fans will also hear Fox talk about Ron Keel and Yngwie Malmsteen and the Steeler days and more.
