Why All Of Sebastian Bach's Friends Are Dead
He explained, "The term is funny. I just saw it on a T-shirt and I just thought it was funny…but we're all getting older and it seems that everyday I lose a friend. Last week I lost a friend named Dave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus of Gwar. He cast me in the Gwar movie, 'Skulhedface' and I went down to Richmond, Virginia and I lived with Gwar for a couple of days and shot their movie and got to know him and he's dead. So, a lot of my friends are dead. And before that, Jeff Hanneman,…it just keeps going on down the line.
"You can also refer to a relationship that's dead. 'You're dead to me', it's actually a song title I've had, 'Dead to Me', but I just blew it because I told you. (laughs) So it can mean that to.
"But I gotta say in the middle part of that song, we go a little crazy, musically, it's like a freestyle heavy metal jam in the middle section. And I unleashed one of my favorite screams erupt out of my throat, in the middle of that song. And I love capturing the pipes on the new record cuz I ain't getting any younger. When I hear my voice like that, at the full roar, like a lion, I'm like, 'damn this is great that I'm capturing this on a record in 2014.' I'm like, cool, I can't believe that's me."
