Scott Lucas Talks About Married Men, New EP, Vocal Healing and more
Legendary Rock Interviews: Thanks for talking to us Scott. For those who are unaware, you were involved in a mugging incident in Russia this past February that caused you a tremendous amount of pain and suffering. How difficult was your recovery and how are you feeling?
Scott Lucas: Pretty difficult, actually. I’m still not all the way there. I’m getting there, but it’s been a much slower process than I would’ve liked. All of the vocals on the EP were recorded very early on in the healing process. It was really hard but we had to in order to make our deadline. I wince every time I hear those screams at the end of “Cruel Summer”.
LRI: That is not the only cover on the EP. My favorite track on it is the cover of “Coward Of The County”, made famous by the illustrious Kenny Rogers. The obvious, non thinkers choice would be “The Gambler” but you chose to tackle a true classic which has remained fairly untouched. Did that song resonate with you as a younger kid?
Scott: I love that it tells a story and begins and ends with the same line, which I believe is the textbook definition of a ballad. And you wanna talk about dark? It’s a number one country-pop song about a gang-rape. Fuck. And Kenny sings the shit out of it.
