Electric Radio Kings @Count’s Vamp’d 7/21/18 Interview with Singer Paul Christiana
Leah: Hello Paul! Hey, great show in Vegas a couple of weeks ago!! Great to see Electric Radio Kings grace the stage at Count’s Vamp’d again for the second time!!
Paul: Well, we have thumbed through a few bassists, but are pushing forward and it is been amazing. The last show we got to play with Michael Grant who opened for us and is an amazing talent. Vegas and Vampd are home base for us and we adore our fans and friends, some who came from Canada and Ohio to see us live.
Leah: Tell me a little bit about your new band Electric Radio Kings…
Paul: Electric Radio Kings are a 5 piece rock outfit utilizing the best of yesterday’s classics such as Cheap Trick, STP, Guns and Roses and Velvet Revolver and inject it with a new vibe that blends rock from today back to the 70’s. I am the vocalist, Stacey Blades Guitars, Keith Horne on guitars, Del Cheetah on bass and Johnny Rude on drums.
Leah: I am hearing good things about the band, that you guys are getting some serious radio airplay and are getting some nice features in the press. What are you guys doing differently to get radio and the press interested in a new band?
Paul: We are working with Landshark Promotions who released our single “Sympathy for Me.” It was accepted well on Active Rock and thanks to Eddie Trunk and Alice Cooper, it got enough airplay to chart on Classic Rock and Active Rock Radio.
Leah: While you were here for your show, you were in the recording studio working on the new album. Where are you recording and who is producing your album??
Paul: Well we love to keep it in Vegas! It’s our home town and AJ St James has been double duty on the engineering and producing while our brother Danny Koker’s studio Desert Moon has been a chilled out vibe, especially with all the great leopard print and purple velvet.
Leah: You are from New Orleans. What is the music scene like there?? Do they have rock n roll clubs or places that have live rock n roll there??
Paul: New Orleans was raised on Jazz but that is a huge misnomer because as far as rock goes Led Zeppelin were the gods to New Orleans, basically Phil Anselmo from Pantera, Zebra, Lilian Axe, and also Crowbar reign from New Orleans.
Leah: Tell me a little about you, tell me about your past music career and what bands were you in? Did you do the whole 80’s thing?
Paul: I cut my teeth in the 80’s on bands like Y & T, AC / DC, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, The Scorpions, Seems like the 80’s bands such as Motley Crue, Blizzard of Oz , WASP, Dokken, Twisted Sister made an impact on me but nearly what the 60’s and 70’s did. I really love the songwriting of Jim Croce,Carole King ,The Eagles and Van Morrison. We are a blend of all the killer hard rock and songwriting we grew up with.
Thank you Paul!! I wish you guys all the best!!
