Metal Life exclusive interview with Craig Goldy 2016
“Metal lifers: they pride themselves on an eternity spent donning denim and leather, rocking out to Saxon, Dio, and Judas Priest since they were old enough to throw up the horns. Craig Goldy has not only been a dedicated veteran of metal but has prided himself on learning from the best over the years. Since his time working with Dio, Craig Goldy has toiled to become his own artist with signature tone and intuitive understanding of song structure. Now he finds success in the grouping of Resurrection Kings, a powerful ensemble that also features Vinny Appice (Heaven and Hell, Black Sabbath, Kill Devil Hill), Sean McNabb (Dokken, Lynch Mob), and Chas West (Jason Bonham Band). Reporter Karila Shannis had the chance to talk to Goldy about developing his own unique style and stumps him with a question about cover songs’ effects on his original songwriting.
