Just got off the phone with country hit machine John Rich, and he let us know about a special guest he plans to fly in for his Jan. 29 appearance at Shelton’s Little Creek Casino – none other than Skid Row front man Sebastian Bach.
“He’s just a buddy and sometimes if I’ve got a show here or there and it seems like it might be fun I’ll call him up and say, ‘What are you doing?’” he said. “I talked to him the other day, and we got his flight booked. I think he’s gonna fly in there to Seattle on the 28th and on the 29th cut loose with me onstage.”
Another interesting tidbit that came out of our interview is that Rich is hooking up with R&B crooner John Legend tonight to work on new material. Legend, of course, appeared on he and Big Kenny Alphin’s last Big & Rich disc, “Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace.”
Stay tuned for the story in next week’s GO and Weekend sections. And if I have time I’ll post some audio from our chat, too.
