Denis Leary & Liz Gillies Talk SDRR With The New York Times
Posted by Laura on Jul 02 2015
.

Denis Leary and Liz recently spoke with The New York Times about their upcoming FX show Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. You can read what Liz had to say below and check out the full interview on the NYT website.
In the show, which has its premiere July 16, [Denis Leary] plays Johnny Rock, a drug-and-booze-guzzling singer who fronted a band in the early ’90s called the Heathens; the group seemed poised for greatness until it broke up on the day its debut album was released. Twenty-five years later, Rock is contacted by Gigi, a daughter he never knew he had (played by Elizabeth Gillies, formerly a star of the Nickelodeon series “Victorious”), who is an aspiring singer with enough family money to get the Heathens back together to support her attempt at stardom. [...]

Mr. Leary, who is the show’s head writer and an executive producer, said that while much of the comedy on “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll” comes from the dynamic of an aging band, the emotional core of the show is the relationship between Johnny and Gigi. “I have a daughter who’s the same age as Liz,” he said. “I know what that negotiating process is when they get to be teenagers, the way the buttons on a dad get pushed.[...]

In order to get a sense of the Heathens’ sound then and now, Mr. Leary started by writing the show’s theme song as well as a song that Gigi sings in the pilot. When the show was greenlit, he added five songs — some co-written by his longtime collaborator Chris Phillips — and went into Electric Lady Studios with Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs as producer. Some of Mr. Leary’s old friends, including Adam Roth (the Del Fuegos), Alec Morton (Raging Slab) and Charly Roth (Ozzy Osbourne’s band), were assembled to play behind Mr. Leary and Ms. Gillies.

“Liz is a fantastic singer, but she’s coming out of a Nickelodeon show, so I wanted her to get down and dirty a bit,” said Mr. Leary.

By telephone Ms. Gillies explained that she comes from a musical theater background, “where you hit every note and enunciate every word.”

“The first day, I was singing and Denis came in and said, ‘I can hear every word,’ ” she recalled. “I said, ‘That’s great,’ and he said, ‘No, it’s horrible! You’ve got to blur them and rock it up.’ It took me a minute to get into that messier side of singing.”[...]

Because Mr. Leary’s approach leans heavily on improvisation by the actors, Ms. Gillies observed that fiction and reality sometimes collided on the set. “We were always getting into arguments, fighting, hugging each other,” she said. “The chemistry and the banter never ends, and there were definitely blurred lines between being a band, a family, a cast.”[...]
