So when something like that happens, I just feel so fucking bad about myself that I just had to take it easier and take better care of myself and make sure I feel 110 percent when I am out on the stage, because that is what I do, that's my job, that's my life. The first tour I did after I decided to do it sober and it was really weird. And all of the sudden I am not a part of it and to me it was quite of getting settled in just let them do their thing and not be a part of it. Right before you are hitting the stage, you are not puking your brains out [laughs], or have to do a couple of whiskey shots to get an even kill. I never got drunk before the show, I just needed to level. I have always been a road dog and I always will be. So I can't let anything or anybody get in the way with that, especially not drinking, or anything like that. But once you had done a couple of tours sober, you kind of get used to it and before you know it… In truth, I only have a couple students who are interested in metal and even with them I always make sure we explore other areas of music. You can definitely apply a little bit of everything you’ve learned into any style of music you ultimately end up playing. I haven’t given her formal lessons yet, but she’s definitely obsessed with music and she has a lot of natural ability.Another thing I love about teaching at the School of Rock is getting to see how far these kids progress from the time they first enter the school for lessons to the moment they hit the stage in one of our concerts. She has her own playlist folder on my i Pod that she programmed with a mix of Guns N’ Roses, Ramones, Queen, Joan Jett. Are you in any bands or working in or on any bands?So, obviously, I was working double shifts in the studio, and if anything, I think the guitars turned out a lot tighter, 'cause, you know, I was just one guy playing them.And, you know, so at least something good came out of a bad thing.He is best known as the lead guitarist, lead vocalist and founding member of the melodic death metal band Children of Bodom, and is also the guitarist for Sinergy and Kylähullut.He has previously played with Thy Serpent and Impaled Nazarene on occasion, as well as Warmen and Hypocrisy.
Despite her metallic background, she teaches all genres to her charges.
Given Goss’ career trajectory, Noisecreep felt compelled to sit down with her to see how she has adjusted since she made the switch, what she hopes to impart on her students and if she will ever pound the keys on stage and in a band again.
What is your favorite thing about teaching at School of Rock?
It was available here in Canada as an import for a domestic price. He could have just listened to what the band said for a second and that's it. We're actually making a new one right now that we'll start filming in about 2 weeks for "Sixpounder". Well, it's not improvised but in the past there are songs that are complete fucking bullshitjust nothing.
We put a lotta money on that videoit was like ,000 dollars or something, so it was really professionally filmed but that pisses me off even more that we put so much money in it. Will there be any more videos after "Sixpounder" or will you just see how it goes? The vocals are just an instrument in there and that's it.
