Decibel Geek Podcast

We're back with the second installment of our Albums Unleashed series and it's been a long time coming but we truly believe it's been worth the wait.

 

John Corabi joins Aaron and Chris this week to discuss what is arguably one of the most underrated albums of all-time; Motley Crue's self-titled album from 1994. In part one of this discussion, John helps us lay the groundwork into the story of the album with stories of his audition process, pre-production for the album, and the maddening-yet-rewarding experience of working with legendary producer Bob Rock.

 

John also shares revelations into the decision-making process of Motley Crue at that time; choosing to abandon the previously-blazed path of lyrics about rock and roll decadence and focus on delivering an album that's powerful not only musically but thought-provoking in its exploration of dark social commenatary. Tracks discussed in part one of this discussion include 'Hammered,' 'Power to the Music,' 'Uncle Jack,' and 'Hooligan's Holiday.' Also covered in this episode is information on John's current plans to perform the Motley album in-full at select upcoming dates with his band that includes guitarists Jeremy Asbrock, Josh Dutoit, bassist Topher Nolen and John's son Ian Corabi.

 

Next week we return to the track by track of the remainder of the album and it promises not to disappoint as John is very forthcoming in sharing the impetus for each song, it's process of creation, and his thoughts on them in hindsight.

So, fill that beer stein to the top and rock out with us as the Decibel Geek podcast celebrates Rocktoberfest!

No previous guest has garnered more attention (and controversy) to the Decibel Geek podcast than Gary Corbett. And this week, he's back for a different reason.

 

This week Gary Corbett returns to the Decibel Geek Podcast to join Chris and Aaron in a discussion of notable keyboardists throughout rock and metal history. In this long-form conversation, the guys point out some of their favorite keyboard players and favorite keyboard/synthesizer parts of songs throughout rock history.

 

This in-depth discussion with Gary Corbett also includes personal stories of Gary's involvement with keys throughout his life; from his early days of piano lessons at age 4 to his love for the British Invasion to the influence of prog-rock on him throughout high school and into his work from the 80's onward with artists such as Cyndi Lauper, KISS, and Cinderella

 

A lot of laughs, personal memories, and great music throughout this hour-plus discussion on keyboardists. Join Gary, Chris, and Aaron on a trip down memory lane.

It's hard to believe that this week's theme has not been covered on the Decibel Geek Podcast but today it takes place.

 

Media worlds collide this week as SiriusXM deejay and author Luc Carl joins the Decibel Geek podcast to discuss their Top 5 Live Albums. When picking parameters for their choices it was mutually agreed that each person would choose albums that had a personal meaning to them in their journey through music and life. Because of that, you're going to hear a wide variety of picks; some you'll agree with and others you won't. Either way, there's lots of tunes, lots of laughs, and lots of great stories shared between Chris, Aaron, and the Ayatollah of Jack and Cola, Luc Carl!

In the early 1980's a pair of Texas brothers decided to form a band. 30+ years later, they are heavy metal legends. Pantera's rise to the top of the thrash heap happened despite a lack of heavy radio airplay and media hype. Their ascent was due to the power of grassroots word-of-mouth brought on by a legion of loyal fans that are still as fanatical about the band as they were at the end of their run in 2003. Today, we talk to a fan of the band that wound up in the inner-circle.

 

This week, Chris and Aaron are joined by rock photographer Chad Lee to discuss all-things-Pantera. Chad is not only a talented photographer but was a personal friend of "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. He organizes the Nashville chapter of Ride for Dime. With the Nashville event coming up on September 27th, Chad sat down to discuss Pantera and Darrell's legacy, their material, and other entertaining stories about the "Cowboys from Hell." 

 

Ride For Dime Inc, a 501 (c) 3, charitable organization, honors the lives of guitar hero and friend, "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, Jeff Thompson, Nathan Bray, and Erin Halk. Ride for Dime has proudly given back to charities that were of interest to Darrell during his life as well as charities he would have been proud to be a part of, like IAVA. In 2010, they started planning and began raising funds for their own "Ride for Dime Scholarship Fund" and are well on their way with the addition of new chapters.

 

We encourage all of our local listeners to purchase a ticket to the upcoming event and hang out with us! Ticket purchase includes entry into a raffle for autographed guitars from KORN & Halestorm. If you aren't local, you can still purchase a ticket and that money will go towards the charity so you can help from abroad as well. All proceeds benefit Rock Against MS and Nashville animal rescue Proverbs 12:10

The guys are back from a week that nearly put Aaron Camaro out of commission and into recovery. After a health scare of pre-pneumonia, Aaron is back to help Chris tackle this week's subject; and is it ever a doozy.

 

This week the guys cover the first half of two very common subjects in songwriting; Heaven and Hell. Rock and metal bands have written about these subjects for decades and that only stands to continue in the future.This week Aaron and Chris spin some of their favorite tracks about the great beyond that is Heaven. In this episode you'll hear great tracks from artists such as Dio, Gunpowder Gray, Volbeat, Suicidal Tendencies, Stryper, Dokken, and much more.

It's no secret that we like Ace Frehley around here and the new 'Space Invader' album is in constant rotation in the studio and we can't wait to hear more from the original Spaceman. And on that note....

 

Recently, Ace announced that the wait for his next album won't be as long as us Frehley fans are accustomed to. In fact, Ace is planning an all-covers album for the near future.

 

This week Aaron and Chris spin their wish list of covers that they think would benefit from an Ace-lift. You'll definitely be surprised by some of their choices that include songs from Budgie, Billy Joel, Deep Purple, Head East, Cheap Trick and much more! We also share YOUR suggestions for songs that Ace should consider for this new album. Enjoy this hour+ of songs that we want to hear covered by the space cowboy!
