If there's one thing that is common amongst music listeners of all genres, it's that they typically  like the familiar and resist change. We're only human after all. We figured we'd make things a little uncomfortable this week.

Who's That Singer?

Who's That Singer? - Ep200

 

 

This week Chris and Aaron help answer the question "Who's that singer?" as they spin tracks from familiar bands sung by less familiar singers. In this hour-plus special you'll get songs from Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Iron Maiden, LA Guns, King Kobra, Anthrax, and many more! We hope you enjoy Who's That Singer? - Ep200 and SHARE with a friend!

After a great first two weeks, we're back with a very special guest this week.

Pixie Esmonde

Konversation with Pixie Esmonde

 

 

Pixie Esmonde, wardrobe manager for KISS (1979-1980), joins Aaron and Chris for an in-depth revealing discussion of a very transitional period in the band's history. In this hour-plus discussion, you'll hear Pixie share her memories of the Dynasty tour and costumes, tensions within the band as the tour drew to a close, the test sessions for Eric Carr's makeup design, and the massive 1980 tour of Europe and Australia in support of the Unmasked album.

Pixie also clears the air on whether or not she delivered the Love Gun-era costumes to the band for the opening night of their Creatures of the Night tour after the plane carrying those costumes was snowed in at an airport. All of that and lots more. It's an hour-plus of some great stories from a KISS insider. Enjoy Konversation with Pixie Esmonde and SHARE with a friend!

The Great Affairs' Denny Smith joins Chris and Aaron this week for a long-form discussion on all-things KISS. Denny worked for the hottest and in the land for their Butterfields Auction in 2000. With items being auctioned such as band-owned guitars, handwritten lyrics, and original customs at stake, Denny had a front row seat to KISStory. He got to handle many amazing pieces of the band's archives. Being a huge fan himself, he took it all in and has many stories to share with the guys this week.

It's officially KISSMAS in July! Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season of the Hottest Band in the Land! We thought we'd kick things off in a big way!

Big John Harte

Konversation with John Harte

 

Former KISS security director "Big" John Harte joins Aaron and Chris this week to discuss his career working for the Hottest Band in the World. In this hour-plus conversation, John reflects on a wild time as KISS rose to prominence during his initial years working for the band. During these years (1975-1976), John saw the ascension of this New York band to the highest of highs. He also was there to see them drop to their lowest of lows by the early 1980's. Subjects covered in this in-depth chat include the Paul Lynde Halloween Special from 1976, a death threat on one of the band members, the recording of the 1978 solo albums, the strange period that produced the sharp left turns stylistically with Dynasty, Unmasked, and Music from the Elder as well as the Creatures of the Night tour. There are numerous inside stories in this episode; many of which have not been heard before.

Grab yourself a shot of cold gin and egg nog and sit back and listen to "Big" John Harte giving Aaron and Chris a guided tour through rock and roll KISStory.

In the 4+ years Aaron and Chris have been doing this podcast, they never expected to meet today's guest. We're thrilled to share this talk with you.

Desmond Child
Episode 195

Legendary songwriter/producer Desmond Child welcomes Chris and Aaron into his studio for an in-depth discussion about his life in music. In this hour-plus talk, Desmond looks back on his early days as a performer in the NY-based disco group Desmond Child and Rouge. This band was a favorite of KISS singer/guitarist Paul Stanley, who used to frequent the band's live shows. A friendship was struck as well as gold when the two collaborated on 'I Was Made for Lovin' You', a Top 10 smash that spanned the globe. Desmond's career in writing/producing took off from there.

In this conversation, Desmond shares his memories of working with some hard rock and metal legends. From his time working with Stanley and KISS on albums such as Animalize, Asylum, Crazy Nights, and Hot in the Shade, Desmond shares his memories of Paul Stanley's songwriting process as well as a strained relationship with Gene Simmons over some words said in an interview during the buildup to 1992's 'Revenge' album.

Desmond Child helped propel Bon Jovi to superstardom due to his collaboration with band on songs such as 'Livin' on a Prayer' and 'You Give Love a Bad Name' from 1986's Slippery When Wet album. In this discussion, Desmond sets the scene of a trip to a suburban New Jersey home and the process in which two of the biggest anthems in rock history were born. The songs carry a very personal meaning to Desmond and he explains how the stories in these songs related to his real life.

Also notable in the hard rock world is Desmond Child's work with Boston rockers Aerosmith. Once again, his contributions would make a massive difference in a band's career; this time in the resurrection of a band that had been long-thought finished. Desmond's contributions in the form  of, most notably, '(Dude) Looks Like a Lady' and 'Angel' would help 1987's Permanent Vacation album go on to sell over 5 million copies in the US alone. His collaboration with Aerosmith has lasted ever since with the writing partnership being evident on subsequent albums such as Pump, Get a Grip, Nine Lives, and Music from Another Dimension.

During this in-depth talk, Desmond shares his passion in protecting music creator's rights and his thoughts on the decline of sales in music and how this trend is negatively affecting the industry and its impact on future generations of musicians. In this discussion, he shares information about the Songwriters Equity Act and the Fair Trade Music Initiative, a wholly independent advocacy network for music creators. Its goal is the championing of a set of Fair Trade Music Principles designed to ensure transparency, fair compensation, and autonomy for music creators in an increasingly complex and non-transparent music business landscape. More information on the Songwriters Equity Act can be found HERE. More information on the Fair Trade Music Initiative is available HERE.
