JOHN BUSH On Solo Tour Celebrating His Era Of ANTHRAX: ‘It’s Something I Would Like To Do Before I Die’

In a brand new interview with Rock On The Rise Radio, former ANTHRAX and current ARMORED SAINT frontman John Bush was once again asked whether he is still open to the idea of embarking on a special tour during which he would perform material from his time as the singer of ANTHRAX. He responded (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “It’s something I’ve talked about for a long time. I haven’t really put it into motion. I’ve talked to my booking agent about it. He kind of comes in and out of being behind it with me. Because he goes, ‘Okay, let’s do it.’ And I’m, like, ‘Ehhh.’ And then I’ll come to him and go, ‘Well, what do you think? Do you think there’ll be interest?’ And he’s, like, ‘You wanna do it now?’ And I’m, like, ‘Well, I don’t know.’ And he’s, like, ‘Get outta here.’

“I like the idea of doing it,” he continued. “I don’t know if I’m ready to tackle going out for three to four weeks and doing a run because I just don’t know, quite honestly, what the interest would be. So I was kind of trying to do a handful of shows, maybe, in some different territories. But, unfortunately, when you do things like that, you sometimes can’t make money. Not that I need to make a lot of money, but you certainly don’t wanna lose money. So that was one of my ideas and that was where one of the conflicts came, and so we stopped talking about it again.

“Again, right now it’s on the backburner,” Bush added. “But it’s something I would like to do before I die. And I’m not getting any younger, ’cause we know that [ANTHRAX‘s first album with Bush] ‘Sound Of White Noise’ is 30 years [old in 2023], so everybody can do the math. The bottom line is I’m turning 60 this year, which is insane; I can’t even believe it. But still I feel like I’m still singing better than ever. But at the end of the day, tackling ‘Room For One More’, ‘What Doesn’t Die’ and ‘Reign Of Fire’ when you’re 70, that sounds pretty daunting; I’m not gonna lie. They’re demanding. It’s like you are a hockey player. It’s a real physical thing, and I think most metal singers can attest to that and relate. You’ve gotta take care of yourself and you’ve gotta be in shape, in vocal shape, and rest and all that crap.
