Sevendust Frontman Lajon Witherspoon Talks Romance, Date Nights + More

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire If you’ve ever seen Sevendust live, then you know vocalist Lajon Witherspoon is an energetic frontman onstage. Loudwire recently had the opportunity to talk to Witherspoon about his softer side as a husband and father. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Witherspoon shared his view on just what makes him so romantic and spoke about why date nights with his wife are happily interrupted by their 4-year-old daughter. Who would you say is the most romantic member in Sevendust? Of course I would say me. [Laughs] You know what I’m going to give it to us all – we’re all romantics in our older age. I think we’re all romantic, we all know how to get down. I think I’m a romantic guy — I like to wine and dine the lady with the candles, a little bit of three-minute fun and then fall asleep, maybe get a sandwich – I’m just kidding. [Laughs] We like to go to the beach, especially when we come out on the road – my wife is going to meet me in St. Louis for a day off and we’ll hang out and I think we’ll go to Sweetie Pies, the soul food restaurant. To me it’s romantic just to walk together and hold hands – it’s going to be cool I’m looking forward to it. With being a husband and a father, does Valentine’s Day stay between you and your lady, or does it become more about the kids? It depends, we actually moved to Kansas so we have her mother, grandmother and great grandparents and aunts and stuff around but before when we were in Atlanta we didn’t have much help except her mother. So now we get to have date nights but the weird thing about it is – the baby, Jada, she’s 4 years old, so when we leave sometimes it’s like, “Let’s go back and hang out with Jada!” You can catch Lajon Witherspoon, the singer, father and husband on tour with the rest of Sevendust in support of their forthcoming album ‘Black Out the Sun.’ They are currently on a trek with Lacuna Coil and Coal Chamber.

When we recently spoke with Buckcherry frontman Josh Todd he reminisced about the last time he toured with Kid Rock. “We toured with him back on our first record with Fuel and Kid Rock’s awesome,” Todd told Loudwire. “I remember the first time I met him, it was at the Sapphire Supper Club in Florida this little place and I think he was in an RV at the time – this was before ‘Bawitdaba’ took off.” Todd adds, “He just remained the same guy from then to now and that’s why I really like him. He’s just a cool guy, he’s my type of person and we’re all really looking forward to playing with him. He just does what he wants to do and that’s what Buckcherry’s all about so I think it’s a perfect combination, a rocking tour.” The singer and father also spoke about the one thing he had to have on tour with him. “I got into this thing where my youngest daughter — if I have something of hers, it’s good luck to me.” He continues, “I have this little skull barrette she used to wear and that’s always in my toiletries bag where my Q-Tips are. So every day I have to open it up to use a Q-Tip, I see it and I smile and I think about her and just feel good.” The Buckcherry / Kid Rock tour kicks off Feb. 2 in Kansas City, Mo.
