FRONTMAN JOSH TODD DISCUSSES THEIR NEW EP, HIS FAVORITE SONGWRITERS AND HIS FAVORITE BUCKCHERRY ALBUM
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 [email protected]& 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.
