FRONTMAN JOSH TODD DISCUSSES THEIR NEW EP, HIS FAVORITE SONGWRITERS AND HIS FAVORITE BUCKCHERRY ALBUM

joshtodd400 Greg Prato of Songfacts spoke with Buckcherry frontman Josh Todd. Excerpts appear below.

Songfacts: Why an EP at this point rather than a full-length album?

Josh: We had 7-inches growing up and they are cool, and we wanted to do something different and have some fun. The F@& EP is so killer and a great piece of the Buckcherry puzzle.

Songfacts: How does the songwriting primarily work in Buckcherry?

Josh: I write all the lyrics and melodies, occasionally music. Keith [Nelson, guitar] writes the majority of the music along with the other guys, and we put it together as a band.

Songfacts: Who are some of your favorite songwriters, and why?

Josh: Prince, Stevie Wonder, just love their words and melodies, and the groove on their records. I can feel that they mean it.

Songfacts: From a songwriting perspective, which Buckcherry album are you most proud of and why?

Josh: Wow that’s tough, probably Confessions. I personally really dug deep on that not only from my personal life but trying to represent the sins and make them good songs was really challenging. I’m proud of the finished product.

    The new song Say Fuck It, kicks ass!! A real fucking rocking tune with ACDC’s Who made Who guitar riff, this will be a huge hit!

  2. Really, “Confessions?” Not my fave, but I do really like this band. Naming new EP F*** is a big marketing risk though, IMO.

  3. Prince and Stevie Wonder are his favorite songwriters? Right, and Adam Levine’s favorite is Dio. Dude’s trying to be oh so cool with his genre-shattering shout outs; meanwhile, if it were true, his music would sound a whole lot more like Maroon F@#king 5 than it does an AC/DC rip-off band.

  4. This guy drives the band with his voice, usually it’s the other way around.
