RN: My favorite scene was during the first season, Joan Rivers was coming out of David Lee Roth’s dressing room.
David Z: You know what’s funny about that episode is that David was supposed to make a cameo. Van Halen was playing that night and the timing was cut way to short so we had to use the star on his door.
RN: Is there going to be a third season of Z-ROCK?
David Z: Right now if there is going to be one it will not be with I.F.C. We parted ways with that network. We are currently looking for a new home for it. But in the mean time we are not sitting around waiting. That’s one of the things that I am proud of with ZO2. We don’t wait for shit to happen to us. We just keep moving as if nothing is going to happen and if it does it’s just icing on the cake. So in the mean time we are putting up our own webisodes on you tube right now. Its two to five minute clips of us out on the road. So people can see the real live events of us out on the road. And people can watch on youtube it’s been getting pretty good feed back because it’s real and because Z-ROCK was based on our real events anyway. You are getting Z-ROCK literally unscripted.
David Z: The problem was we did not have the foundation to build off of that. When we got that Kiss tour we had only played eight live shows. And we had just released the first CD. It was self released. There was no label behind us there was no backing. We went on the tour and it was amazing. Of course we all thought we would get back and there would be offers on our door step. But there was no foundation. We didn’t have a following out side of that tour. We only had that tour to go off of. It was a nice little spring board, but in a way it was sort of counter productive, because something like that really is best suited when you already have something established. We really went backwards in a way. We started on this big tour and had to build our way back up to that point.
RN: Being Kiss Fans your selves, what was it like to tour with them?
Paulie Z: It was one of the greatest things. Being Kiss Fans it was an incredible experience. We were not just playing on stage. We got to hang out with them during dinner. We played wiffle ball. Just fun stuff like that. More that anything it was a personal triumph for us. But to add to what David said, I think it was a little weird to have started there. But the truth is it opened a lot of doors for us as well.
RN: Will there be a live DVD/CD?
David Z: It’s funny that you ask that. We just talked about that. The first thing we want to try and do is to figure out away to do a live stream so fans that are to far away to come see us, can see the shows as they happen live. Outside of that we are looking to do a live DVD. The problem with that is we need to find the right venue, the right sound people, and the right video production team to do it. Even more than that, you want to have more than just the live show. You want to pack it with extras. It is some thing that is on our minds. It has been for awhile. If it comes out it will definitely be packed with extras.
David Z: We would love to tour the country, but again with any the problem is money. For instance Texas was such a good place for us to play when we did the Kiss tour but we have not been able to get back there because it’s not cost effective. It would cost so much money. We would be able to do it once and then never again. So we really try to focus mainly on our area and concentrate on those markets. To try and get on an extended tour once again, a lot of it is pay to play. So a lot of these bands when they get these spots they are actually paying to get the gig. And with out a label behind us that money it is hard to find. Our label has always been American Express. So we are doing as much as we can to make it possible in the future. We are working with different agency groups to get that in the works.
