Step This Way For The Latest Classic Rock Podcast!
In this month’s block-busting two-hour (!) special:
Duff MacKagan (Velvet Revolver/Guns N’ Roses/Loaded) on the search for the new Velvet Revolver singer, writing new songs for VR, his new band Loaded, and why you can’t have a wank on a tour bus…
Brian Tatler (Diamond Head) on the birth of the New Wave Of Heavy Metal, the new Diamond Head boxset, the problem with their second album for MCA Records, and why the band were never as big as some of their contemporaries – or followers.
Wayne Hussey (The Mission/Sisters Of Mercy) on the Sisters, the end (and the beginning) of the Mission, his favourite singers, the Goth scene, and his love of classic rock.
And in-between, CR’s Scott Rowley, Sian Llewellyn and Ian Fortnam discuss why Bruce Dickinson wasn’t in our Top 50 Greatest Singers poll and Layne Staley was, whether you really need a good voice to sing rock’n’roll, how Goth became THE ‘rock look’, why the credit crunch doesn’t rock, the death of the record shop, why you can’t trust the internet, the return of Prog, why everyone’s reforming, punk rock guilt, and the small men of Green Day.
PLUS! New music from Bible Of The Devil, Ulysees and Lethargy.
NB: Because it takes us forever to make ones of these things, some stuff is a little bit dated. The Duff McKagan interview, for example, was recorded when he was over in November. (Scott tried to edit it so it wasn’t noticeable, but gave up cos it started to make no sense and meant cutting out too much good stuff.)
And yeah, we know two hours is a bit long for a podcast but it’s not radio – skip the bits you don’t want to listen to.
