Badlands made a great second record together, but the timing was all wrong. If coming out in the summer of ’91 against Van Halen, Metallica, Skid Row, and Guns N’ Roses didn’t mean certain doom, then Kurt, Eddie, Layne and Chris would finish them off. On the road to promote the Voodoo Highway album, Jake E. Lee and Ray Gillen dropped by MuchMusic to chat. The former Ozzy guitarist and former Sabbath vocalist might have had a sense that the album wasn’t getting the push that the debut received, but they don’t let on in this interview. A goofy Jake plays with Ray’s head while Ray tries to answer a question.
- Jake not being very good at returning phone calls (the formation of the band)
- Diversity in music
- “The Last Time” music video
