There isn’t a longtime visitor to this site that does not know the name Rex Brown. Most of us grew up blasting Pantera at earsplitting volumes. I went through 3 or 4 copies of Vulgar Display of Power. Some copies were stolen by friends, while some were played to death…literally. Rex Brown is truly a legend in the music business. If not for Metallica and Pantera, I might just be listening to Adelita’s Way or Pop Evil right now. Rex’s new band, Kill Devil Hill is worth your time investigating. It was an honor to have him on the show.
On April 15, 2014 Sevendust released their latest studio effort, titled Time Travelers & Bonfires. This acoustic offering blends the Sevendust history with a twist of stripped down acoustic instruments.
John Connolly marks the 4th Sevendust member we’ve had on our show and just like his fellow bandmates, he was a terrific guest and exemplified everything we appreciate about these guys.
Bands, Failure, Music, Wondering Crazy »
A few weeks back, I’m talking to Darius and he says to me, “Dude, Failure is doing an L.A. show.” It shortly turned into, “Dude, Failure is playing the El Rey.” Then, “Dude, Failure sold out the El Rey in minutes.” Last night was Failure’s first show in a decade and a half, so everything came full circle. Now, this band who was mentioned to us, almost in passing, at the end of an All Knowing Force interview, has taken music center stage in both our lives.
Motley Crue, Music »
“Like their music or not, they brought it for 30+ years. They always did it their way, and now, they’re going out on top. Motley was one of my first loves, and when I look back on it, seeing Dr. Feelgood on MTV was likely my gateway into exploring heavier music. What a ride it was, and I have nothing but love, respect, and admiration for their career.”

This interview has never appeared on our new site. It was conducted back in 2006, right at the time 15 was exploding. Unfortunately, they’ve not been able to duplicate the success of 15 on their last three albums. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the band live numerous times, in venues such as the Middle East in Cambridge, MA, the Webster in Hartford, Webster Hall, and Irving Plaza. In a live setting, they’re excellent, but with the quality of the last three albums, I’m not really looking forward to what comes next.

Bands, Eve 6, Headline, Headline3, Music Interviews »
We encourage all our listeners to check out this interview, and more important, get out to an Eve 6 show. “Oh, aren’t they that ‘Inside Out’ band?” Or, “Didn’t they play that ‘Here’s to the Night’ song?” Forget that. Their live show will make you forget those songs even exist. It doesn’t get much more infectious than Eve 6. Masterful live.
Headline, Headline4, Music, Music Interviews, Soul Asylum »
I remember purchasing Let Your Dim Light Shine in the mid-90′s. By then, they weren’t cool anymore. Bush was dominating the airwaves. Korn was popularizing nu-metal. Maybe “Misery” was a little silly. Maybe it was too much too fast. Still, somehow, Dave Pirner, through his goofy lyrics and odd demeanor managed to find a place in my musical heart. Their latest album, Delayed Reaction was released in 2012. Inside, you’ll find some commentary and an interview we did with Dave before Soul Asylum’s fall 2013 co-headlining run with Fountains of Wayne.
