All month, enjoy the new HPR interview I recently did with Jack Johnson on-demand as a very special May issue of the Classic Interview Player with Jack Johnson. Featured on-air during the Kokua Festival weekend, and as an extended interview segment on-demand in my Dave Lawrence Reports on-demand audio archives at Hawaii Public Radio, now you can hear the entire conversation, as it happened, all month long as our latest issue of the Classic Interview Player. It also features unbelievable live video of jams with Paula Fuga, Ziggy Marley, Jake Shimabukuro, Taj Mahal & others. Check out a fun Jack Johnson photo slideshow, links to his official sites & more, all month long, as we celebrate Hawaii’s #1 selling contemporary touring and recording act, Jack Johnson, in this brand new conversation in the May issue of the Classic Interview Player.
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.
It’s an honor to have my interview with Queen’s Brian May featured on his website this month. Brian was a wonderful guest in 2006, and thanks in no small part to my friend Carmine Appice, who arranged the interview so I could discuss Brian’s role in his “Guitar Zeus” CD project. Carmine just released the two original CDs as “Guitar Zeus Conquering Heroes” (hear the new interview with Carmine on DLTV now, and the Classic Interview Player in October), and to celebrate, I dug up the Brian May interview, posting excerpts relating to Carmine online. Brian has kindly featured these excerpts on his website. CLICK THE SCREEN CAPTURE ABOVE OR THIS LINK TO VISIT BRIAN’S PAGE WHERE YOU CAN HEAR & READ THE INTERVIEW EXCERPTS.
Get Carmine Appice’s new Guitar Zeus Conquering Heroes CD now, and I hope you enjoy the interview(s).
