March 15, 2012, 10 years ago
Legendary shock rocker ARTHUR BROWN spoke with Apostolos Pantazoglou of Greece's Rockpages right after his concert in Thessaloniki on March 10th. An excerpt from the interview follows:
Q: A few months ago you played with ALICE COOPER in his Helloween show. How did it feel playing with the person who said, 'If there was no Arthur Brown there would not have been Alice Cooper'?
A: "You know he was so nice. He was so generous that I felt that that I was with a friend. From what I explored back then, came his shows and everything. In that sense, artistically we can say that he is my musical son. But he took it in his own direction. It just felt like two people in the same field that had a friendship. And as I said he is a very generous man."
Q: You also worked with BRUCE DICKINSON on his 1998 album The Chemical Wedding.
A: "The second time I had KINGDOM COME the road manager worked for us for three years and then he went to Bruce Dickinson. Bruce also has been very generous. Since then he is a very good friend of me. He helped my when I was in a very bad way. Now he is back at the top again. He is an intelligent man and he likes to move forward and create. But he is very humble person. He knows what he stands for but he is very humble."
