Tobias Forge revealed he sees Ghost going into his 70’s or 80’s until he dies, which at that point the band would be over, in a new Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon interview. Ghost are reportedly set to release a two-song seven-inch single “Kiss The Go-Goat / Mary On A Cross” on September 13th. Most recently, Ghost have opened for Metallica on a massive European tour, and Forge recently revealed the Ghost album he can’t listen to.
“It feels like, having broadened the palette, and having been able to push in songs that, before they existed, I was a little bit on the fence about — ‘He Is’, for example; even the first part of ‘Ghuleh’ was a song that I wasn’t sure this was gonna work. But as it did, that also allowed for a lot of leverage and a lot of clearance and a lot of basement to utilize in the real estate that you keep excavating and exploring.
And having noticed that I can sort of get away with writing ‘Life Eternal’ and songs like that, it feels like, well, if I can do that with Ghost, and I can also write ‘Mummy Dust’ and I can write that and the other, it feels like I don’t have to go someplace else. Some musicians do that — some musicians do it masterfully and just completely do something different with another band.”
Forge revealed a few weeks ago how he is doing with his money. He also told Mitch Lafon about his writing as he gets older.
“I regard my writing and my form of expressing myself a little bit more similar to Queen, I guess, rather than AC/DC, in a way. And I like that — I like the idea of hopefully being a 50-year-old or a 60-year-old and eventually a 70-year-old, maybe older, having a very wide repertoire of various songs. I prefer that, I think.”
