Hard Rock Hideout recently conducted an interview with BUCKHERRY frontman Josh Todd. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
Hard Rock Hideout: What are the plans going into the New Year for the band?
Josh Todd: Well, we have this new album "Black Butterfly" and it has a lot of great songs, so we are going to be putting in alot of time and effort to make sure everyone gets to hear the depth of this record like we did with "15". We toured two years and over 300 shows, and we have already done 65 shows and the [new] album hasn't been out for two months yet. So we are just going to be touring and getting these songs out on the radio so everyone will know what's going on here.
Hard Rock Hideout: You and Keith started BUCKCHERRY because of a mutual love of AC/DC. Have you had a chance to hear "Black Ice"?
Josh Todd: I did I have the record, but I thought "Stiff Upper Lip" was a better record. But there are a couple of songs I really like. I like the first single, "Rock N' Roll Train", and there is another song called "Anything Goes" where Brian [Johnson] is singing with a lot more meoldy and I thought that was cool. As a whole I didn't think the record was a great record but it is a good rock 'n' roll record.
Hard Rock Hideout: Do you have an opinion about President-elect Barack Obama?
Josh Todd: I really like his energy plan — that is something I really like — but I'm not too excited about the taxes. But as far as what this guy is made of, I just don't think we know yet, you know. As a whole, as far as both candidates were concerned, I just wish we had more choices, because I think a lot of people were on the fence with both parties. I think it is really too soon to see what is going to happen with Obama. I mean, we'll see. He has to back all of his words. I mean, he's got a very difficult job. I definitely wouldn't want to be handling it. I congratulate him for his courage to take on this incredible task and hopefully he will do it with grace and really bring something to the office.
