CKY drummer Jess Margera discussed the band’s short-lived tour opening act All-American Rejects and what what led to the split with Chart magazine. “Here’s what happens: we get tons of CDs and we decline them all,” Margera said. “At the last minute, the tour people just pick someone because we’ve declined all the bands.” Guitarist Chad Ginsburg added, “The first time I heard them, I was outside in the bus beside the club with the windows open. I said, ‘what god-awful DJ is in the club playing that music?’ Then someone said, ‘Chad, that’s not the DJ, that’s your opening band.'”
Asked about CKY’s influences, bassist Vern Zaborowski tells Scott Mervis of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, “Most of the band, besides me, is into KISS. I think they’re annoying. I guess they’re good at what they do, and we have some of the aspects of that. I’m a big Zappa fan. We all like Sabbath, Mike Oldfield, a lot of weird [stuff].” As for their tour with Guns N’ Roses that was cut short, he says, “There was a riot on the first show and the last show. That’s a perfectly symmetrical tour.” Read more.
Although the Guns N’ Roses North American comeback tour started and ended in riots and was ultimately cut short, CKY has no regrets. “We got to play Madison Square Garden with Guns n’ Roses,” guitarist Chad Ginsberg tells RollingStone.com. “That’s cool as sh**! Axl gave us a great opportunity. He was really into us.”
