Hear the March Classic Interview with Motley Crue’s Vince Neil!

Getting out of jail early and making the news with his legal debacles, it seemed fair to throw Vince a solid, and break out some good times in his honor. No pun intended.

We celebrate with this fun gem from 2007 with Vince and I having laughs, enjoying memories, and bonding over the rock we all love.

Enjoy ten live videos, too, showing the Crue in action around the world laying down the rock as only they can, with Brother Vince up front and in charge. Plus a dy-no-mite photo slide show that takes you through the years.

It’s a Crue Classic Interview Player!!! With Motley Crue’s Vince Neil & I — listen on-demand all month.

Get the fascinating inside details on that, the meaningful naming of the group, and more…

THIS COMING WEEK ON SHOVIO, MONDAY MARCH 22 CATCH HEAVEN AND HELL/BLACK SABBATH DRUMMER VINNY APPICE AND THEN SHINEDOWN DRUMMER BARRY KERCH THURSDAY MARCH 25

Carmine’s baby brother with the different pronunciation, Bruddah Vinny as his Hawaii fans affectionately know him, returns to the fold with a fresh DL interview. He’ll be camming in from the East Coast and joining me for the daily rock news and video report I do on the Shovio Network, DLTV On Shovio, Mon-Thurs. 10p EST/7p PST/4p HST. This Monday March 22 we get the 411 on Ronnie James Dio’s cancer, Tony Iommi’s hand surgery, Vinny’s shoulder surgery, and Geezer Butler ducking and hoping no medical drama reaches the famed NIB introing Terrance.

All that and more as Bruddah Vinny – the powerful drums behind Black Sabbath’s epic “Mob Rules” album… their 1982 tasty 2LP live set “Live Evil”… Dio’s “Holy Diver” and “The Last In Line” opuses… some righteous drumming for sure. We’re proud to welcome him to DLTV On Shovio- hope you can make it, too.

As if one great drummer wasn’t enough, catch Shinedown’s Barry Kerch as my special guest Thursday to end our week of fun… Shinedown have had a string of successful recent hits — “Second Chance”, “If You Only Knew”, and “Sound Of Madness”… They gigged in Honolulu recently — see more pics from it further in the blog — and we had a fantastic sit-down over at the hotel, chillaxing lol… Seriously, a special chat, and some of this cool new video interview is being featured to wrap up our week this coming Thursday March 25.

This is a chance to touch base with a monster talent in one of rock’s most popular contemporary acts. Shinedown came through Honolulu and rocked Pipeline Cafe. We got to spend time with them at the hotel and the gig, and in addition to recording a long-form interview for Hawaii Public Radio, I scored a companion video of it, hence, our cool new video interview with Shinedown you’ll be enjoying a taste of this Thursday March 25 as we do our Friday Fiesta a day early, as usual, for DLTV On Shovio.
