I recently sat down with Bill to discuss, among other things, the history behind FireHouse, recording the band’s double platinum debut album, solo efforts, approach to songwriting, and his upcoming Stageit show.
Dale Crover is one of the OG Melvins. He’s the band’s drummer and more. I am happy to say I’ve got Dale with us for an interview today. We talk about the Melvins’ new record, getting fat during the pandemic, the band’s working class ethos and Dale’s new solo record.
I’ve said before, the Rock game has long been dominated by men. These days, there are so many incredible, shredding lead guitarists out there who are females and in this way, Rock has never had more balance than it does now.
When we talk about bands that influenced entire genres, let alone sub-genres, it’s easy to get caught up in hyperbole. With that being said, when I say that Trouble is one of the most influential Metal bands to ever take the stage- I mean it.
The new age of of fierce, rocking female guitarists is stronger than ever. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing several already, and it’s my pleasure to have Nikki Stringfield with us today.
For as long as I can remember, Eddie Trunk has been a part of Q104.3 as a host, mostly on Friday nights with his Eddie Trunk Rocks show. Eddie has been a huge force within the Heavy Metal and Hard Rock scenes for over 35 years.
Steve Von Till is a true new age man. While you may know him as the guitarist for Heavy Metal outfit, Nuerosis, he is so much more than that. It was a treat to speak with one of the most unique and well rounded musicians and poets of our time.
Fred Coury, was the hard hitting drummer for one of the biggest bands of this era, Cinderella. I am sure you all remember them for their multi-platinum albums, Night Songs and Long Cold Winter. There may not be a single song that defines 80s Hair Metal and Glam more so than ‘Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone).’
Some of music history’s most endearing and interesting figures have come out the Metal scene, in particular, the European Metal scene. One of the more recent, and truly talented players in that history is font person and singer, Elena Cataraga AKA Lena Scissorhands.
Born out of the ashes of the now disbanded Devil’s Blood, Molassess certainly has its links to the past, but they are confidently pushing forward, while doing their own “thing.” What I love about Metal is the passion and the culture. If you’re not a Meta head by trade, the aesthetic can be a bit jarring, if not alarming.
