Former FAITH NO MORE Bassist Talks About Playing Guitar For Germany's HARMFUL

A four-minute video interview with former FAITH NO MORE bassist Billy Gould about his current stint as the touring guitarist for the German heavy rock/noise trio HARMFUL has been posted online at this location.

Gould last year finished producing HARMFUL's follow-up to their "Sis Masis" album (2005) at Blubox Studios in Troisdorf, Germany. Entitled "7", the CD was released in February.

Commented Billy: "Originally, I decided to produce the band because I liked the music. Once we began working together, I realized that we had a lot in common, musically speaking. I think I can actually make a positive contribution here. What excites me about the band is the fact that it is straight-up with no pretense, while managing at the same time to throw in some beautifully twisted chord progressions. I haven't done anything like this for almost 10 years, so this will be an adventure for me too, and isn't that what it's supposed to be about? Besides, this is a great band, and if my involvement helps them to expand beyond Germany, then it's totally worth the effort."
