Interviews STARE

THE SKULL drummer hopes for a reunion with his former bandmates in TROUBLE

Heavy Planet recently conducted an interview with the members of THE SKULL, a spin-off band featuring former members of the legendary doom metal band TROUBLE.

Drummer Jeff “Oly” Olson mentioned in the interview that he was hoping there would be a reunion with his former bandmates in TROUBLE, stating:

I did some interviews with them when Trouble did 70,000 Tons of Metal and I had asked questions like, “Are we still a family?” And I think Rick wanted to do something that was his version [of Trouble] and I think a lot of us weren’t ready to do that. But it’s just the way history goes. I think that this [new] version is something that Bruce kind of wanted to work on with Rick as well and then what you get is a type of Trouble that the guitar players wrote. Remember the Kiss solo records that were kind of cool? Like Ace’s album was fucking awesome. I think it’s sort of like that in a way. I think there’s band drama behind the scenes a little bit, but I don’t think it’s as radical as bands that really fight each other and embarrass each other in public, in magazines and interviews. I don’t think it’s that bad. And I just think it’s creativity, people wanting to do things their own way and differently. And our fingers are all crossed at a huge reunion… almost like the Jethro Tull reunion or the Yes reunion. You know on those DVDs where there’s like 20 people at a banquet and they’re all talking about the different albums? [Laughs]
