Sebastian Bach Won't Rock Velvet Revolver's Mike

May 7, 2008 10:32 AM ET

Despite getting the thumbs up from outgoing singer Scott Weiland, Sebastian Bach will likely not take over the lead-singing vacancy in Velvet Revolver, saying it would be "really awkward." Talking to Tampa radio's "The Buckethead Show," Bach said he likes his own new album Angel Down more than the VR records, plus Bach would rather be singing "old songs" by Skid Row than Guns N' Roses. Most importantly, "I'm very close friends with Axl," Bach said. "Axl's been so nice to me, I don't think I would feel comfortable just joining Velvet Revolver and singing his songs every night. So I don't think that's gonna happen." Besides, Bach's calendar might be booked for a couple weeks after signing up to participate in the honky-tonk debacle known as Gone Country 2.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
