Singer/guitarist Stephen Richards spoke to ChartAttack.com about life in the Taproot camp, which has seen him transform from a drummer to a frontman. “I’m still not that confident,” Richards said in regards to stepping up to the mic. “People tell me good things but I’m totally harsh on myself. We’re sticklers for details and perfection, so we’re the first to bash ourselves in the head and say we suck. I knew it was gonna take time to get comfortable with it.” Reminded of the band’s success landing on Ozzfest and pissing off Fred Durst, Richards said, “I suppose so, but it’s not all that crazy. Our second album was bigger than the first but it still wasn’t gold or anything. That’s what we want though: slow and steady to win the race.”
