Fatherhood Rocks: So, you just made your very first record, how does it feel?
Darth Rirou: Wonderful because it is literally a dream come true. A childhood dream.
FR:A childhood dream, what do you mean by that?
DR: Yes, it is kind of a long story but learning how to rock and make music was a dream of mine since I was 7 years old. Never had the balls to pursue. I mean I had a band in high school but nothing serious.
FR: Who is this album for?
DR: Well, it’s for kids from around the ages of 5 to 12. For me those are the ages that usually shape your purpose in life. Especially 9, 10, 12 years old things really start to change. Was right around that time my depression started to kick in. This album is also for any adult healing their inner child, I mean I believe is great for anyone working on their traumas and fears. Certainly it is for me.
FR: Why are you a myth?
DR: Well first when I left the Royal Caribbean cruise some friends of friends in Brasil were saying I jumped from the boat and swam to shore, in order to escape. Second we gonna find out on halloween 2021 *laughs*
FR: What are the songs about?
DR: Everysong has a meaning but the whole album is inspired by my kids and what I want to pass on to them.
FR: What was the hardest part?
DR: Facing my fears and hearing myself. It’s always weird at first.
FR: A music inspiration for you?
DR:Lemmy Kilmister, in fact the idea of Rock-it-ology comes from his song… “Rock it… it ain’t no crime.”
