Former Badlands and Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Jake E. Lee and his bandmates from Red Dragon Cartel had a recent interview with That Just Happened.
Jake revealed lots of stuff from being expected to play his classic songs to on having played ‘old school’ music…
Here is what he said (Transcribed by BlabberMouth):
“Red Dragon Cartel feels like family. It feels like everybody involved contributed. And it’s more old school. I’m just an old-school guy. I’m 62. I’m not fucking changing, and everything I do is old school. I’m just happy that there are people that appreciate it and come out and are supporting us with this record. ‘Cause it is a good record.
This tour promoting the new record, where I’m supposed to be a legacy act… I don’t like that title. I don’t wanna be a legacy act. And I get it. If I go to see Zz Top, I wanna see ‘La Grange’, but at the same time, if Billy Gibbons decides he doesn’t wanna play ‘La Grange’ that night, I fucking totally get it. He’s still Billy Gibbons. But, yeah, everything is old school. I still play loud onstage. And, yeah, it feels very familiar.
Having fun is the reason I’m touring. Make new music, and then to be able to do it live in front of an audience most nights [laughs] — but to be able to play it live anyway — yeah, that’s why I do it. I don’t do it for the money, ’cause there’s not really that much money to be had on the road anymore.
And a lot of my peers do it to be in the spotlight, ’cause they like the attention. I don’t like the attention; I’d just rather shy away. But it’s purely for the music. The album was done that way. And we’re touring to support that album, and it’s all about the music.”
