Decibel Geek Podcast

Bassist Rik Fox returns to Decibel Geek this week for Albums Unleashed - Steeler. Fronted by vocalist Ron Keel, Steeler had migrated west from Nashville. Upon his arrival, Keel would realize he needed new players to compete with a burgeoning Sunset Strip scene that included rising stars such as Motley Crue and Quiet Riot. In this long form discussion, Rik shares his memories of auditioning for Steeler, his meeting with drummer Mark Edwards, and the circumstances that would lead to Swedish hotshot guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen joining the band. Upon his arrival, Malmsteen certainly made his presence felt. In this discussion, Rik shares some entertaining stories of the eccentric shredder including a very tense moment in rehearsal between Malmsteen and Keel.

Albums Unleashed - Steeler

Also in this discussion, Fox shares his personal feelings of the recording process of the Steeler album as well as memories of particular shows on the Sunset Strip. Steeler was a very well-known band in the Hollywood area and would pack clubs regularly. In this long-form talk, Rik recalls a show opening up for Quiet Riot that took place as the Metal Health album was taking off.

As the bassist of Steeler, Rik Fox was a member of one of the most pivotal bands in L.A heavy metal history. Steeler, while a popular act of the era that had great songs, did not seem to have the all-for-one-and-one-for-all type of relationship that many other bands had. According to Fox, tensions mounted as the band's popularity began to rise. Issues with Malmsteen's critique of the material and songwriting led to growing tension between the guitarist and Keel. In this discussion, Rik also shares his memories of the end of his version of Steeler including how he was let go from the band.

DBG VIP Joe Becht joins the guys this week for Radio Sucks Radio Show v28. In this two-hour music and discussion episode, Joe spins killer tracks from artists and albums that he think weren't given a fair shake by the mainstream radio community. However, in this long-form episode you'll get great songs from Skid Row, Wendy O. Williams, Plasmatics, King's X, Angel, Trouble, Rush, Love/Hate, Cheap Trick, and The Cult. It's a fun ride with great stories and an even better soundtrack.

Rock & Roll will never die!

by jcapone3rd on Jan 31, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Found Decibel Geek when Chris did a guest shot on Inappropriate Earl podcast and figured I'd give them a chance. After all, anyone who talks fondly about the Vinnie Vincent Invasion can't be that bad... Needless to say I was hooked after two episodes and have now begun my journey through the archives! I love the open format of the show. Whether they are introducing me to obscure bands and songs I've never heard of before, or giving their own personal insights to the music I grew up with (I'm 43 - so do your own math ;p), each episode has been a fun ride. A few years ago, Gene Simmins claimed "Rock & Roll is dead"... but with guys like the Decibel Geeks serving as Defenders of the Faith, the Spirit of Rock will Keep on Rollin' and give you a Reason to Live! Ok, enough bad puns. Give them a listen and let them take you Over the Edge! Up the Irons! \m/

The guys are joined this week by Ben and Dakota Denman for Shredders Discussion with Denman. In this long-form talk, you'll hear the history of this awesome young from Nashville by way of upstate New York. Multiple twists of fate took place to bring these guys where they are today including run-ins, collaborations, etc with rock personalities such as Mark Slaughter, Luc Carl, Greg Mangus, Tony Higbee, and ultimately Michael Wagener who produced their new 5 song EP, The Life We Live, that you can purchase HERE.

Shredders Discussion

 

The guys in Denman are no strangers to shredding, as you'll hear throughout the show. They may be in their 20's but their influences fall right in line with what you, the Decibel Geek listener, like to hear. Shredders discussed include, of course, the big names such as Van Halen, Malmsteen, Vai, Satriani, Gilbert, etc. Other shredders discussed include Michael Angelo Batio, Vito Bratta, George Lynch, Dan Spitz, David Davidson (Revocation), and a debate on the merits of Vinnie Vincent.

We hope you ENJOY Shredders Discussion with Denman and SHARE with a friend!
