Away Team recently conducted an interview with Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose. Excerpts from the interview are below:
Away-Team: With Cold Day Memory you kind of seem to have gotten back to the core Sevendust sound. Do you attribute that to the chemistry of having a guy like Clint Lowery back in the fold?
Morgan Rose: “Oh yeah, 100 percent. Ya know, we did three records without him, and we missed him. You know that’s like bringing in that fifth element, ya know. I mean, the sound of our band was always the heavy riffs, the melodic choruses, and the three different voices. Really, to be honest, the last time we really had a decent amount of power on a record was Animosity, because we were dictated to during Seasons a lot, so it still sounded like us, but we were told what to do. So we had to kinda groove our direction that way, and we like that record, but Animosity was really the last time that all five of us had the power to be able to do exactly what we wanted, so this was the first time since then, and I think that it showed for sure.”
Away-Team: You mentioned Tommy Lee earlier; Tommy has a tremendous amount of respect for you. You actually got to fill in for him a few times, how was that experience? I mean it’s fucking MÖTLEY CRÜE, was it intimidating? Was it exciting? How’d that all pan out?
Morgan Rose: “It was terrifying, because I got the call to do that just a few hours before I actually hit the stage. I mean, I got the call and in two hours I was at the airport getting on a plane that I barely made, to Cincinnati, to get to the venue, and in another two hours I was on stage. And I didn’t know how to play any of the songs; I mean it was nerve-wracking to say the least. But he’s one of my best friends, and I love him dearly, and for him to call me and have me fill in for him in a pinch was definitely an honour. And to be able to, I can put that in my memory bank, and in my book of accomplishments. I mean Nikki Sixx actually put out a press release, that said “As of now Mötley Crüe’s a five man band”, and I was like “wow,” that was cool.”
