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 KORN – NEW SEPTEMBER CLASSIC INTERVIEW PLAYER ISSUE

In late July I had the pleasure of speaking with Korn’s front man and vocalist, Jonathan Davis. He was soft-spoken, very cool, easy to talk with, and I think you’ll really dig this interview. What a laid back, very nice cat.

You may recall checking out some of this interview via HPR, and the extended interview with Jonathan on-demand in my DL New Releases Blog. What’s cool about this month’s Classic Interview Player is it more than doubles the length of what you’ve heard so far, with a whole bunch more conversation. Nearly twenty minutes now, it’s a meaty feature that also includes lots of the Korn Live The Encounter videos from their historic crop-circle gig. It has a special live in-concert cover that’s relevant considering some of our… shall we say… Floyd-based discussion, too : ). Also check out some cool pics, links, background and more…

Hope you dig it!

It’s a brand new full-length interview you can hear on-demand all month with Korn’s Jonathan Davis, in the Classic Interview Player’s new September issue.

NEW RONNIE JAMES DIO CLASSIC INTERVIEW PLAYER TRIBUTE

The June issue of the Classic Interview Player is out today, and don’t miss the incredible tribute we’re offering up for the Man On The Silver Mountain, Ronnie James Dio.

Go back in time and hear my two brief, in-person interviews with Ronnie when he was in Black Sabbath on the 1992 Dehumanizer tour, speaking about the new tour, reuniting with Geezer, Tony, and Vinny, the changing concert market, his early influences, and other avenues of discussion in this quick, personal moment with Ronnie. Cruise through dozens of photos in a career retrospective slideshow set to one of his solo studio monsters. Watch and hear two hours of live video, taken from shows throughout the years with Dio, Rainbow, and Black Sabbath. Hear studio epics, signature classics, and more. Get some relevant Dio links for more content on the master showman. Enjoy ID outtake fun, as Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi and Ronnie James Dio take time to joke around with me. It’s a great issue with a ton for you to do. Enjoy it here at my site all month long on-demand.

Most of all, celebrate Ronnie James Dio with me. Throw up the horns if you wish. Turn up the vids loud, like you were turning up the night. Brother Ronnie, we send you maximum aloha and respect from Honolulu. We’re lighting a lantern for you, bro —
