This is probably the fourth or fifth time I’ve interviewed Chris, and every conversation is better than the last. Yes, I’m a fan of Daughtry professionally and personally. He’s a really solid guy and very talented.
He gets a little more in-depth about why he covered Journey’s “Separate Ways” with Lzzy Hale. “Lzzy and I have been talking about doing a duet, whether it be an original or a cover, for a long time. When we did that acoustic tour she came out on one of the dates and did an acoustic cover of Alice In Chains’ ‘Man In The Box’, and, I was thinking “Maybe we should record that” and then this idea came up, I was like “Hey, would you be interested in covering ‘Separate Ways’?” She responded that was her go-to karaoke song, and they were on their way.
That’s just for starters with Chris.
Tripp Eisen is up next. We discuss everything from Dope to Static X to the Murderdolls. What’s his relationships like with some of his former bandmates? Why isn’t he in the new incarnation of Static X? What was his last encounter with Wayne Static like? (That was an interesting story) What’s he got going on in 2023?
These questions and many more were answered.
