INTERVIEW: Bobby Blitz (OVERKILL)


Wikipedia Bio: Robert Ellsworth (born May 5, 1959), best known as Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth, is the lead vocalist of New Jersey thrash metal band Overkill. He has been the lead vocalist of Overkill since its inception in 1980, and he and bassist D.D. Verni are the only constant members. Although a bassist, he focuses on vocals in the band. He also did the vocals for the band The Cursed featuring Dan Lorenzo (Hades and Non Fiction) in 2007.

On Slayer's final tour: "Oh, man, I don't make decisions for other people. People should do what they wanna do. If they're done, they're done. They know better than I know. It's all about individual choice. I mean, they're cool guys. I just saw Gary [Holt, SLAYER and EXODUS guitarist] out in Los Angeles last weekend [at the NAMM show] — I did a METAL ALLEGIANCE song with him or two — and I never even brought it up, because, again, that's their business. So it's really not something that goes through my mind — 'How strange is this?' or 'How weird is this?' or 'Oh, no.' I don't think in those terms. I've always paid attention to my own porch and my own house as opposed to that of others."
