Jackyl Frontman Makes Rock History
The new Jackyl, Best in Show, celebrates the 20th anniversary of the band and Classic Rock Revisited spoke with Jesse about it. Here is a little excerpt where he discusses his musical son.
Jeb: Have you been tempted to collaborate with Nigel? Jesse: He is like any man out there, I need to let him have his space and I need to let him feel comfortable to make his own way. He doesn't want to ride his old man's coattails.
He is in a special place with his songwriting right now. I think when the time is right, and it happens naturally, then it will happen. It is not like we've not thought about it; we've even talked about it. I don't think we will do it just for the sake of doing it. We don't want to force it.
Jeb: Us old bulls need to let the young ones have room to run. Jesse: Exactly. I am still having a hard time realizing that he is 22 years old. When I think of us writing songs together I am thinking they will be called, "Are We There Yet?" or "Mama, I'm Through Come Wipe Me." I am just blown away that he is grown and doing so well. He has a monster guitar sound and a great band and he's doing good. Read the full interview here.
