BT: The Boss, Codeine, Dramarama, Kermit the Frog

By the time you’re done reading this post, you’re going to think I need a hug. You might even think I need an intervention. I assure you I’m not depressed. If you guys want to go in the direction of melancholia, I can certainly take you there. Perhaps in the next one.

A synopsis of my journey to becoming a Bruce Springsteen fan.

I decided to write this after listening to Nebraska in its entirety on a recent road trip. It’s not the happiest of albums, and there was a time when I couldn’t get through a minute of it. Now, here I am, showing my appreciation for The Boss…for all to see.

Chris Wyse of Owl and The Cult Interview

The Right Thing, the second full-length Owl album will be released on April 9th, 2013. This record truly lives in the moment. It’s very primal, organic, competent rock music played with conviction. The Right Thing opens with a cover of The Kinks track “Destroyer.” An album opening with a cover – daring and unconventional, to say the least. As far as I’m concerned, this is rock and roll, the way it should be – not an overthought collection of songs that all sound identical.

Buried Treasures:  ALF, The Verve Pipe, Soul Asylum, God Forbid

“I listened to the latest All The Remains album. I cannot believe this is the same band that released This Darkened Heart and The Fall of Ideals. The under 18 crowd must rejoice. If you no longer bring a lunchbox to school, it’s time to move on. All That Remains 2012 isn’t for you. This buried treasure is a lunchbox. I brought this with me to school during my early grade school days. ALF, at that time, was king.”

Love and Death (featuring Brian “Head” Welch – formerly of Korn) Interview and Live Show Review from The Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY

“One thing I picked up on didn’t happen on the stage. It happened at merch. I’ve seen thousands of merch tables in my day. Very rarely have I seen what I’m about to tell you. During RED’s set, Welch made his way to the Love and Death table. I saw countless groups of fans go from banging their heads to running – literally – to Love and Death’s merch table. Mid-set. Mid-song. Amazing stuff. This dude is a star. Period. When you’re a star, that’s how people react.”

Buried Treasures:  Paw – Death to Traitors

“The first album ever to “speak to me” was Death to Traitors by Paw. I was in my early teens at the time, doing the Nirvana thing, the Weezer Blue Album thing, the Siamese Dream thing, etc.” Click through to read the article!

Interview with POD Frontman Sonny Sandoval

“I was flying solo when Sonny Sandoval came on the show. My morning was grueling. He was in the midst of doing a plethora of boring, formulaic interviews. So, to amuse ourselves, we talked about Bad Brains, the hood, and fake peeps.”

Interview with Hank3

Hank3 released four new albums on September 6, 2011, a mix of country, doom-rock, and speed metal, with a little cattle callin’ here and there. Entitled Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town (a 2-disc country record), 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin’ (a metal record in the newly anointed cattle core genre) and Attention Deficit Domination (a doom rock record), these albums were released on Hank3’s own record label, Hank3 Records (through Megaforce Records), and feature guest appearances by Tom Waits, Les Claypool of Primus, Alan King of Hellstomper, and Williams’ dog, Trooper. And in 30 minutes of audio, we address this and more.

BT: Judas Priest – A Touch of Evil

I can listen to Van Halen with Dave and I can listen to them with Sammy. I can listen to Priest with Halford and I can listen to them with Tim Owens. Good music is good music, and Ripper absolutely owns this song. Turn this song up LOUD.
