Catching up with Paul Shortino of King Kobra

Catching Up With Paul Shortino of King Kobra
Interviewed by: Roger Scales

Following the self-titled King Kobra album from 2011 does King Kobra II pick up right you left off as a band?
Yes.  I’m certain that’s why Carmine wanted to call the record King Kobra II.  I thought initially we might have called the record Have a Good Time because the attitude in that song pretty much describes life here in Las Vegas and how we all felt making this record.  The majority of the record was done right here in the Vegas area.  We did the video for that track at a place called Vamp’d which is one of, if not the only rock club in Las Vegas. Danny “The Count” Koker who has a show on the History Channel called Counting Cars owns the club and he let us shoot there.  That’s where we go even when we are not playing just to hang out.  They have some great acts come though and play there recently like Y & T, Michael Schenker Group and I think Saxon is coming sometime in August.  Read more

 It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from King Kobra but along with Paul Shortino on vocals the rest of the band is back with their self-titled debut on Frontiers Records.

I recently caught up with Carmine Appice to talk about what inspired their return.
