Video premiere: Ugly Kid Joe are alright
Classic Rock are proud to premiere the video for Ugly Kid Joe track I’m Alright, taken from recent EP Stairway To Hell. View it below.
Frontman Whitfield Crane says the band are “keeping the ship afloat” after staging a comeback long after their early-90s Everything About You and Cat’s In The Cradle era.
He tells Neu Welt Music: “17 years ago we were excited to prove ourselves with our new, heavy music. Sometimes we’d leave Cat’s in the Cradle or Everything About You out of the set. That was understandable in the sense of wanting to prove ourselves – it was also childish.
“It drove me crazy, but now it’s all good. Now in 2012, we embrace both our sides. They’re part of our dynamic and our history.”
Ugly Kid Joe recently completed a UK tour with Alice Cooper and Duff McKagan’s Loaded. They return at the end of the month for a series of shows culminating in their appearance at Hard Rock Hell.
