ROSS THE BOSS (full english version)
+++ Slipped into Corona lockdown: The new ROSS THE BOSS album "Born Of Fire" +++ Can the planned November tour take place? +++ The return of the original DICTATORS +++ Respect to his MANOWAR songs +++ Plans for a Blues album +++
In this episode, I'll take you across the pond to New York City, where Ross Friedman, better known as Ross The Boss, is waiting for us at the other end of the zoom line. A man who is left with almost 50 years of music history in his bones and who has left his mark on both Heavy Metal and Early US Punk. Most of course associate him with MANOWAR where the guitarist played a key role in the songs on the first six albums between 1982 and 1988. I'll leave you to your own opinion on how you rate the material that was published afterwards ...
But before in the early 70s he was part of the New York DICTATORS when he has taken the same breaths as the Ramones and the Stooges with Early Punk in the Big Apple and where they regularly dismantled clubs like the CBGB's.
Since 2006, Ross and his ROSS THE BOSS band have been releasing razor-sharp Epic Metal, which repeatedly reminds of its heydays from the 80s. Nevertheless he always packs an additional portion of power as he proved to us with the album "Born Of Fire" which has been released in the middle of the Corona Lockdown.
During our conversation we then went through all the projects bit by bit, until at the end he told me a secret about what he will be up to next. So stay tuned.
