Bang Tango Singer, “I Was Going Through The Same Thing That Bret Michaels Went Through”
July 29, 2010
Late last year rumors of Joe LeSte’s death surfaced online after he was rushed to hospital before a gig in Chicago, but the Bang Tango frontman is alive and well working on a new CD.
Joe tells Sleaze Roxx — https://sleazeroxx.com/interviews/joe-leste-interview/ — “The real story is, yeah I almost died, my bass player basically saved my life. What happened was I didn’t have my medicine because it got lost at the airport in my bag. So here I was going through the same thing that Bret Michaels went through — pretty much had a minor stroke.”
When asked about the new Bang Tango CD Joe says, “We are working with Anthony Focx on mixing the album, he’s going to produce the guitar candy on it. Anthony is what we call air candy. The other guys play the root and the main part of the songs, then Anthony comes in and says, ‘it would sound cool if you did this’ and we just go along with him because the guy is a fucking genius. As far as Alex is concerned I don’t think he is going to be on this album because we have this new guy and he is really really good. Al’s dedication is to Adler, Alder pays him big bucks and from what I heard they are recording a new record. So I don’t have time to wait around and see what happens with Al. I’m constantly on tour and I’ve got a record label now that is looking at us going ‘ok, let’s get this thing done’. I’ve already started with the new guy.”
“One minute for 6 months it’s going slow, then all of a sudden we’ll get a phone call saying, ‘ok we have to meet with this producer, we have to do a photo session’ and everything gets turned right back up again. It’s cool, I’m very happy, I’m in good company with a lot of good people.”
