Morgan Rose of Sevendust on Lost Record Deals and Finding Success

Morgan Rose has seen it all. Drug-fueled rock parties, fistfights at band practice, lost record deals. Turns out the path to making a kickass band like Sevendust isn’t always obvious. 

Morgan Rose’s iconic metal style isn’t just limited to hard-hitting, smash and chaos – he’s also one of the most entertaining players of his generation. From jamming with his dad to Hendrix tunes at the age of 3 to co-founding Sevendust in 1994 and filling in for rock legends like Mötley Crüe and Korn his talent and resume stack up to just about anyone in the business.

Drawing from his experience forming a band, filling in for other behemoths, and even being tapped by Tommy Lee to drum in his side project, Methods of Mayhem, Morgan has gathered a wealth of knowledge of the inner workings of some of the top groups in rock. We had a chance to sit down with him for SABIAN’s Green Room Series to hear his perspective navigating the industry. 

His tip for the up-and-comers: if your band is full of ego-driven crazies, it’s going to fail.
