Bob Forrest is a singer-songwriter and former the lead vocalist of ’80s and ’90s L.A. rock bands Thelonious Monster and The Bicycle Thief. He got clean in 1996, after 24 attempts at rehab. Today, he’s returning to the music industry. His new solo album, “Survival Songs,” explores his original material, both old and new. 

Forrest is not to tell the story of his 24 times in rehab, or about his work as a musician with a $2 million contract with RCA in the early ’90s … or just about his slow comeback from heroin and homelessness. Forrest is looking forward.

On spending money in the ’80s and ’90s:

Do I regret it? There’s not much to do about it. I try to just learn from the mistakes I made. So, I spent most of my money on drugs and lawyers, from ’89 to ’93. Drugs, lawyers and rehab, those were my major expenditures. I know that I owned a home a couple of years ago out in Enchino. It was the first home I’d owned sober. And I was sitting in it and I was thinking, “This don’t feel any different than leasing this house.” Really, I am a strange one about money.

On money now:

I’m just lazy, too, kind of. Like, once I’m comfortable, I’m not out there trying to make more money, because, I mean, how many pairs of shoes do you need? How many cars can you have?
