JUNKYARD singer David Roach says he’s glad he never became a multi-millionaire rock star like Axl Rose.
Roach, who spent time in a homeless shelter after the Hollywood band broke up in 1992, has told the White Line Fever podcast remaining hungry is a key component of Junkyard’s critically-acclaimed 2017 release, High Water.
“In a lot of ways, I’m glad we didn’t end up like Axl Rose and things turned out the way they did because we might not have been able to put out the record we did,” Roach said.
“A lot of the songs, I’d written and had around for 10 or 15 years.”
Drummer Patrick Muzingo adds: “We might have put out a slushy pop record or something.
“A lot of stuff is personal but it’s also universal.”
Junkyard reformed in 2000. They are currently on tour in the US
