Hi Zinny! Let's start this way: Who the fuck is Zan Clan? ;)
Zan Clan is the band that U have been waiting 4 if U love Hard ´n´Heavy Rock and like 2 party all night and see a band that can put on a show that you'll never forget.
Describe your music with three words?
raw power n attitude
What made up your mind to come back after so many years?
The industry needs me!! All I can see now is spineless bands with no go for attitude. Music is supposed to grab you by the neck and shake you around. It's about to make you wanna party and stay up all night. But since no one can make that shit happen I decided that I would step in and do the deed with my buddies in Zan Clan.
But why didn't you reunite Shotgun Messiah then?
Cause Shotgun Messiah was great back then and to be honest I don't think Tim, Harry or Stix would wanna do that anyway. Tim is busy with Marilyn Monroe oh sorry Manson.
How would you compare the Rock/Metal-world of yesterday with today?
I think we had more fun back in the days, now it is very sterile - so to speak. One thing for certain is that back in the days you could hear the difference from let's say Whitesnake from Skid Row or Aerosmith, AC/DC, Motley Crue or The Cult. Nowadays all the singers and bands sounds alike and that's BORING! COME UP WITH SOMETHING ORIGINAL GUYS!
What is your opinion especially about the Glam Rock scene?
It is coming back which is cool. But 2 be honest I don't care if it's Glam or Sleaze as long as it brings good Rock music with it, 'cause we do need a change on the music scene. Away with the Rap Crap blig bling shit! I hate it!!!!
What was the biggest compliment you received for your band(s) in all those years?
When we opened up for Whitesnake on their Scandinavian arena tour and 1 night Mr David Coverdale told me that we were the best opening act he had ever had. That´s really something in my book of Rock'n'Roll. This guy have done it all with Deep Purple and Whitesnake. So that was a great compliment
for Zan Clan. And off course the reaction from both supporters and critics on this album.
Everybody seems to love it,THANX.
Alle the names you mentioned so far are pretty old. Aren't you worried that there are hardly any young Glam Rockers?
No, I'm not worried, as soon as the media will pick the Glam rock thing up you will see an increase again. So no worries here.
Speaking about the album: How was the work with Chris Laney?
Chris is a crazy, fun, talented maniac and a great friend 2. So me and the rest of the band had a great time and Chris did 2, still recovering. Ha,Ha,Ha.
Do you already have tracks for a follow up CD?
Yes Sir! We are way ahead. We have at least 6 songs that are ready 4 the next ZC album.
Who are you plans for live activities?
We are trying hard to tour in Germany, France and England but we do need a management or someone to help us out with that bit and we don't have that yet.
However,we are sending out to all your festivals in Germany that we would like to come and play there.
Thanks for the answers, Zinny. Any last words for our readers?
If you like to see us play in Germany please let the people who arranging
your festivals know that you want us there, go to their webpage and make them know.
Bye 4 now
Zinny J Zan
