BRIGHTON ROCK Guitarist Greg Fraser - "We’ve Got An Offer To Do Rocklahoma 2010"
January 10, 2010, 12 years ago
BW&BK; scribe Carl Begai recently caught up with FRAZE GANG / BRIGHTON ROCK guitarist Greg Fraser to discuss the new Fraze Gang EP, Don't Call Us. During the interview Fraser commented on Brighton Rock's October 30th, 2008 appearance at a benefit show in Toronto to raise money for CONEY HATCH frontman Carl Dixon, who was seriously injured in a car accident earlier that year. A show that inadvertently fuelled rumours that Brighton Rock were getting back together for the long haul.“Man, that was so cool,” Fraser says of the occasion. “It was almost like it was our show (laughs). I don’t want to take anything away from anyone else but there were a lot of people that just went crazy when we hit the stage. There were fans from all over that came out to see us, we were really tight and everybody was just so enthusiastic on stage, it was all for a great cause… it was just perfect. The night couldn’t have gone off any better, it was amazing. We came off stage and we were like ‘God, let’s do that again!’ (laughs).”
Fraser doesn’t see any reason why Brighton Rock shouldn’t get back together for more shows at some point, but the chances of going back to the grind of writing and recording a new album followed by a real tour schedule are slim at best. He explains:“It’s one of those things where everybody wants to do it, but because we don’t have agents or management behind us anymore that makes it tough. Nobody’s doing the groundwork, and once you open that door and try to do it yourself it’s nothing but roadblocks and headaches trying to get it all together. We’ve got an offer to do Rocklahoma 2010 and they’re basically saying ‘What would it take to get you guys down here?’ so we’re feeling things out. We don’t want to sound greedy but we want to make some money at the same time. I’ll play for free so long as it doesn’t cost me anything. It’s all wait-and-see right now.”
