Interview with Chris "Godzilla" Doliber from Madam X
Madam X was reunited this year at Sweden Rock Festival. And a
review of that show can be read under our “concert reviews”
Due to many different circumstances I didn´t get to do this
interview face to face with Chris “Godzilla” Doliber. But being
the great guy he is, he agreed to do it by mail. So Chris was sent
a couple of questions to answer.
Chris, tell us about the second coming of Madam X. And why now,
when so many bands from that era did it some years ago ?
Well here we go.
Like a unwanted doll Madam X has been sitting dormant for almost
30 years, until June 7th 2014. That is the day that Sweden Rock
plugged us in and turned us on.
Maxine and Roxy were the one's that put the wheels in motion
regarding the Madam X reincarnation. The idea was spawned by
fan request's while Roxy was doing Vixen Dates. Maxine posted
on her Facebook that we would record a new song with all original
members , Truth be known they didn't even ask me if I would do it.
I guess they thought there was no way I wouldn't . Shortly after
that posting Sweden Rock contacted Maxine to verify the
Madam X situation, followed by a solid offer to put us on the bill
for the 2014 season.
We as Madam X agreed to record 1 song and perform at Sweden
Rock 2014, but it wasn't until after the performance that we all
agreed to continue performing and recording as a band. So really
it was Sweden that put the band back together.
Why Now? Madam X has always been a very explosive dynamic.
It has been difficult at best to get all of us to agree on anything.
However we all agreed that Sweden Rock was to be our grand
Fare Well. Why did it take so long? I really don't know . The 80's
feel like just a short time ago ,All these years I have been having
such a great time ,it seems I lost track of time. I feel like I'm 25
and ready to take the stage with my band mates.
From what I understand the Sweden Rock Fans have been
requesting Madam X to participate for a number of years. As I
said it wasn't until Maxine posted that we were going to record,
that the Festival asked us to perform.
Could you ever imagine that the crow would give you so
much love ?
Wow the audience was just fantastic !!! I never dreamed it would
be like that. I expected a few thousand people at best, but I was
really surprised to see our stage area at capacity. I don't think
there is a better feeling than the audience singing your songs back
to you !
How did you feel the new single was received by the crowd ?
I think the new single "Another 80's rock song " was well received
by the fan's . They seem to know all the words and weren't shy
about singing along with us. I think the song did it's job.
Will there be a new album ? And following tour ?
At this time we are recording the new album titled Rez Erection.
We look to have it completed early 2015.
We just secured a international Booking Agency BIG TIME
ENTERTAINMENT , So yes we will be out in 2015 and hope to
see you there.
