Interview with Jason Crosson from Greek-Australian Theatrical Glam Rockers CROSSON

What does glam rock mean?

When I was growing up , the 70s was considered glam and the 80s was Heavy Rock and Metal.  Nowadays, anything representing an 80s scene is considered glam. Whether is Glam Rock or Glam Metal, for us its about putting a show and image together that is exciting and visually stimulating and keeps our audience entertained and guessing. 


You are Greek-Australian Theatrical Glam Rockers, CROSSON. We are pleased to present their cheerful side with the enjoyable video you prepared for the song ‘Weak At The Knees (For A Hot Brunette !!)’ through their album Rock ‘n’ Roll Love Affair. Is it a song for brunettes?

I am an Australian born Greek. My parents were born in Athens and Castellorizo.

Weak At The Knees is just a fun song celebrating not only brunettes but all women. There are many songs about blondes so I decided to write a song celebrating brunettes. Like he song says “ Here’s a song for your darkhaired girls all around the world”

When did you feel the need or the impulse to get involved with music and why?

My first love was ABBA at a tender young age, however after being stung by the Rock N Roll Disease as a kid after discovering KISS, then a few years later Motley Crue and the whole 80s glam metal scene, topped off with seeing Iron Maiden on the World Slavery Tour, I was hooked and know this is what I wanted to do.


We are going through a time of wider crisis beyond the economic one. Is the song also going through a crisis? What do you think should be his role in such times?

There is no misogynist meaning at all behind the song. In fact it’s the opposite as it’s a celebration. We’ve received many messages from brunettes from different countries thanking us for writing a song about them.

As you are aware, we have 2 women in our band, who are really the stars of our show and this is their favourite CROSSON song.

I think all our roles is to respect and love one another.

Do you think any creator struggles to succeed in the journey into the magical world of song?

I can’t speak for anyone else however, the biggest struggle for me is to write a better album and songs that the previous one and trying not repeat myself.  Once I force myself into the studio and get into ‘ the zone ’, then the songs tend to flow.  If a song isn’t good enough, then it goes into the rubbish bin and start again.


Have you visited our country? What are your impressions?

As an Aussie / Greek, Ive been to Greece numerous times. We generally go every 2-3 years to visit relatives. Greece is beautiful and like a second home. Hopefully we will get there soon to play for all the crazy Greek rock fans.
