Guitarist Joey Allen states that Warrant definitely won’t be “first guinea pigs” to tour
Warrant‘s long-time guitarist Joey Allen was recently interviewed by Metal Mike for the 80’s Glam Metalcast podcast.
In terms of Warrant‘s Cherry Pie 30th Year Anniversary Tour being cancelled by Covid-19, Allen indicated (as transcribed by the 80’s Glam Metalcast podcast with slight edit):
“We got into this business because we love music and we are fans of music. Now our whole goal is to go out there and play and for people to have a good time, and there is nothing about having a good time if you get sick. The most important thing for us is just to wait and see what goes on. Right now we don’t have any large outstanding plans to tour. We definitely are not going go out there and be the first guinea pigs. Cherry Pie turns 30 in September, so hopefully 2021 will be a good year for us. The most important thing is the health of our fans, our crew, and everyone involved. Could you imagine…you made it through the 80’s, you made it through the 90’s and you go out on tour to celebrate 30 years and you catch a virus and you die?”
With respect to the album Cherry Pie, Allen stated: “We can’t fathom that Cherry Pie is 30 years old. It’s definitely in the top 3 of our catalogue for me. It was so successful and it had so many great songs on there like “Mr. Rainmaker”, “Sure Feels Good To Me”, and “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. The songwriting was killer. The song “Cherry Pie” has a catchy riff, it is what it is. It’s not indicative of what the band’s catalogue is. It’s a lot of fun and there’s no excuses for a hit song!”
