THE NEW ROSES | TIMMY ROUGH
This episode of Signals From Mars features an interview with Timmy Rough, the singer and guitarist of the German band The New Roses.
Among the topics discussed include the band’s new album, Sweet Poison. The diversity of the band’s influences. Touring the U.K. after Brexit. The band’s connection to the military, and playing for the German troupes in Afghanistan. Opening for bands such as Kiss, ZZ Top, Scorpions, and Aerosmith (among others). Playing on two editions of the Kiss Kruise, and why COVID-related rules have kept them from being part of this year’s Kruise. Bands they’d love to play with. Playing with bands much heavier than them like Slayer. Timmy gives his opinion on whether or not Pantera should get back together and play.
Before wrapping the interview I had to ask about the name. Mainly because I once saw a prominent guitarist say “The New Roses, didn’t they know Guns N Roses existed?” So I ask Timmy about it. Hear what he has to say.
