Bassist Rob De Luca to start recording next Spread Eagle album in late December
Spread Eagle, Sebastian Bach and UFO bassist Rob De Luca was recently interviewed by Andrew Daly for Vinyl Writer Music.
Spread Eagle released their third studio album Subway To The Stars back in August 2019 and it was voted to the #12 spot on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2019. The band had previously released the albums Spread Eagle (1990) and Open To The Public (1993) before disbanding in 1995 and eventually reforming in 2006 with a partly different line-up.
With respect to the band’s early years, De Luca indicated: “Three of us lived in Boston for a few years gigging and trying to get a recording contract. People liked the band but not the singer. We moved to NYC, got Ray [West], and were signed to MCA/Universal within three months.”
In regard to his views about groups like KISS, Mötley Crüe, and more adopting a grunge like sound in the ’90s, De Luca opined: “Grunge was definitely one of the factors why our second album was overlooked. I like any music that’s good, so I was, and am a fan of some Grunge music. However, trying to be something you’re not rarely sounds genuine, and fans can usually tell the truth.”
In terms of his future plans, De Luca revealed: “In late December, I’ll return home to start recording the next Spread Eagle album. Then, in 2022, most likely more Bach shows in the Spring, Spread Eagle touring, UFO Last Orders EU tour dates in June, and October ’22.”
