"I had a lot of ideas, applied them and worked a little bit harder than everybody else around me, and got lucky a couple times." - Andy Biersack.
Andy Biersack isn't just the frontman of Black Veil Brides - he's also a solo artist in his own right, and an actor to boot. Inside the Lights issue of Rock Sound, we go in-depth in a massive career-spanning interview with Andy in Any Question Answered - pick up your copy now from SHOP.ROCKSOUND.TV.
Speaking with Rock Sound about what he wants his legacy to be, Andy was honest about how hard he's grafted over the years, and how many people have given him a chance.
“To be around in people’s consciousness as a public figure who makes hard rock music, in this era, for 10-plus years, is a significant accomplishment in itself," Andy shared. "And that’s only because people have allowed me to do that. So many people will tiptoe around saying, ‘Yes, I worked really hard, but I was also lucky’. Because that’s the truth. I came from a very small town, just outside of a small market city in the Midwest, where no one from there has had any kind of fame, ever. I had a lot of ideas, applied them and worked a little bit harder than everybody else around me, and got lucky a couple times. Anyone can do that. I was born with something where, when I grew up, people said, ‘Oh, he’s kind of handsome. But he can’t sing for shit, he can’t write a bridge so he’s just screaming’. So I went, ‘Well, I’m going to work harder and get better at those things’. It’s all been about the hustle, the hard work, and people giving me a chance.”
