During in an interview with Vegas Rocks!, members of Slaughter band, frontman Mark Slaughter and bassist Dana Strum has revealed how they survived through grunge scene in 90’s.
“I think it’s one of those things — a lot of bands stopped touring, and we continued to tour. This is what we do. It’s a natural process for us, what we do. We’re a tiger that never changes its stripes. We always did what we did.“
“I think our biggest thing was you’ve gotta be who you are. We were big lovers of a lot of bands — from Black Sabbath to Led Zeppelin to AC/DC — and if any one of those bands didn’t sound like their band, I don’t know why anybody is there. So, for us, we went though those lean times driving vans and driving rental cars.”
Mark said ‘It wasn’t pretty’ and Dana talked again:
“But we kept playing and we played the songs that we believed in. And what’s funny is many of those came back around, and here we sit today, playing those songs. We’re lucky we ever had ’em.”
