If you like Black Sabbath, guitar, or hard rock/heavy metal of any kind, you’ll probably enjoy this very special pow wow talk story session with the man who arguably wrote the book on all things metal.

Mahalo as always for cruising with me. Aloha!

August Classic Interview Player issue: Watch my new interview with Puddle of Mudd

We’re celebrating three years of the Classic Interview Player monthly online magazine at DaveLawrenceOnline.com with a cool two-month party. July marked three years of presenting a fresh interview to digest each month, and we featured something from the vaults: Rush’s Alex Lifeson. We doubled the length of the originally aired interview, making it twice as long with previously unheard material from the original interview session back in 2003, and throwing down ten classic live Rush tracks on video, showcasing the band live through the years on some blistering tracks, much of it rarely seen film and video.

Now, making it sort of a “Then & Now” two-month celebration, we flash forward to 2011, and a brand new interview with Puddle of Mudd. This was recorded just two weeks ago when they were in town for Bayfest at the Marine Corps Base in Kaneohe. It was their first-ever show in Hawaii, and this long-form video interview follows up a long telephone chat recorded earlier in July and featured on HPR. Leader Wes Scantlin and I spoke on the phone, and this video chat features Wes and Paul Phillips of the Mudd sitting down pre-show for a fun yet revealing convo. This very fresh, just-out-of-the-oven interview is special as it’s a parallel feature to a new entry in my HPR DL New Release Blog, which will be posted soon with the audio portion of the new interview… Here in the Classic Interview Player, you can watch the same interview, seeing how it all went down, and enjoy ten live POM videos shot through the years. Check out the last two for both a wailing jam from the Bayfest show, and also see them play their new single, Gimmie Shelter from the Re(disc)covered CD of covers… shot just the other night on July 30 in Cleveland.

Enjoy the Mudd, and a big mahalo to brothers Wes and Paul for sitting down with me. I loved hanging and appreciate the kind hospitality and candor. Fun times, dudes. Be safe — aloha!

 

Hear my new interview with Queensryche legend Geoff Tate and their new single

Last week on Tuesday the new Queensryche album Dedicated to Chaos dropped, and I was fortunate to speak with singer Geoff Tate. This new interview covers a lot of different topics, and Geoff, if you’re unfamiliar, is a truly articulate, thoughtful guy to speak with. Some of the material discussed includes the new Dedicated to Chaos album, the future of records and touring, the fading record company/publishing/intellectual property commercial model, the late Ronnie James Dio’s importance to both Queensryche and Geoff, experiences here in Hawaii, first hand accounts of being in Iraq to perform for the troops and reflections on their epic, and emotional American Soldier album, Geoff’s passion for wine and winemaking, and much more. It was a pleasure to reconnect with a gentleman whose appearance in 2007 on my afternoon show was a real treat.

Hear this full-length new interview  and their new single Get Started now at HPR in my new release blog, and also listen to the interview in the 2011 interviews player on the front page here.

HEAR A NEW EXTENDED INTERVIEW SEGMENT WITH THE DEAD KENNEDYS

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is an extended interview segment carved out of a much longer new conversation with legendary Dead Kennedys founder, guitarist East Bay Ray.

It’s an honor to speak with Ray; he was a huge hit in my life of interviews, getting to pow wow with The Dead Kennedys founder, hear the deal on Jello Biafra “skimming” band money, forcing a court case with a judge ordering him to pay the band back seventy grand. Get the fascinating inside details on that, the meaningful naming of the group, and more…

Get into The Dead Kennedys live in concert tonight at The Loft in Honolulu. Underworldevents.com for info. Also hear a tasty DK classic below.
