Installing A Back Splash


hi,

i would like to install a backsplash above the kitchen sink and countertop. it looks like regular sheetrock is there now, painted with some sort of epoxy base paint, maybe? can i just glue and grout ceramic tiles to this? or do i need to rip out the sheetrock and put in that grey cement mesh type board (cant think of the name) first?
