Podchaser Review:

vmr907 (Victor Ruiz) reviewed Decibel Geek Podcast

5 Stars

Take a cheese head and pair him up with someone that elevates him to stand at the top of the mountain and be more than the mouth of the south. That someone being the catalyst for an earth shaking movement, who isn't contractually obligated to kick ass, but just does. Together they are a force of nature, a natural disaster waiting to envelop your ears with more entertainment than most can handle. Accuse them of anything you want, but the only thing they're guilty of is loving music, and putting out quality shows. You feel me? Heck yeah!

In honor of episode 333 we’re spinning our Top 5 Pantera Songs! It’s been 18 years since the last Pantera studio release and both Vinnie and Dime are no longer with us. But even so, the music they left behind still reverberates today.

With the exception of the lesser-known “Glamtera” years, Pantera burst onto a turbulent music world. Indeed, the early 90's were a time of great transition. Notably, grunge was driving out “hair” metal; causing divisions among the music-buying public. Brothers Vinnie and Darrell Abbott, Rex Brown, and Philip Anselmo lit a fire that burned bright and inspired thousands. Considering the environment, for a metal band from Texas to capture the public’s attention and unite different cliques is remarkable. Additionally, the wild, untamed stories of excess while on tour only helped to build the Pantera legend.

Top 5 Pantera Songs

 

Choosing our Top 5 Pantera Songs was no easy task. Since both of us are huge fans, we could have easily picked five contenders off each album! This week we give your our favorites. They come from such classic sonic platters as Cowboys from Hell, Vulgar Display of Power, Far Beyond Driven, The Great Southern Trendkill, Official Live: 101 Proof, and Reinventing the Steel.

Pantera is no stranger to Decibel Geek Podcast. We’ve featured their music several times and even devoted a couple of previous episodes to the Cowboys from Hell. Click the links below for those episodes after you listen to this one!

Saturday was a start-to-finish marathon with the ROCKNPOD Expo taking place through the afternoon. Tons of podcasters, tons of guests, great panel discussions, great vendors, and much more. Did everyone have a table? Did anyone guest get drunk? Did any podcaster NOT get drunk? Did anyone throw up? We’re giving you all the details.

Once the ROCKNPOD Expo ended the Afterparty commenced downtown at The Basement. Black Heiron, Neverwake, Jacob Cade, and Denman performed. Was there controversy at this show? Did Dr. Fukk from Thrash or Die perform? Was there Sammy Hagar destruction? Did anyone throw up?All those questions and more will be answered.

ROCKNPOD weekend wrapped up at Zanies Comedy Club with performances by Craig Gass, Earl Skakel, and Courtney Cronin-Dold. Was there a podfather in the house? Did the front row include two icons of 80’s rock? Did anyone throw up? We’ll answer those questions as well.

Our ROCKNPOD recap will conclude with some behind the scenes discussion including the guests that got away, the ones we couldn’t believe we got, and the one that we were thrilled to walk away from. We’ll also talk about plans for next year!

Original member of Kid Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker Band Kenny Olson brings some amazing stories this week! Devil Without a Cause was unleashed on the world 20 years ago and it's place in music history is solidified.

Kenny Olson

In this long-form talk, Kenny Olson gives the backstory of how a diverse group of Detroit musos found each other, blended together a sound like no other, and went out and dominated the world.  The late 90's were a difficult time for guitar driven rock music. The grunge era had come to an end and the mainstream world was preoccupied with pop tarts and boy bands rising up the charts. To have a foul-mouthed white rapper spitting bars over a rhythm section that would make Motown proud and a guitar duo that could simultaneously belt out the blues while ripping your face off sharing space on TRL is one of the most unique success stories we've ever heard.

Kenny Olson goes incredibly in depth in this long for talk; sharing stories on the making of the album as well as experiences that came out of its success. You'll also get an update on the amazing things he's been up to since including his new band 7 Day Binge.

We're back this week to wrap up KISSMAS in July by calling YOU to ask about Your First KISS! We hit up Skype this week to talk to friends, fellow podcasters, musicians, etc to get the stories of their first exposure to KISS. It's a fun trip through the rolodex talking about the Hottest Band in the Land!

Additionally, you'll get a cool one-on-one chat that Aaron Camaro had with his father-in-law Jimmy. As a teen, Jimmy was one of the few lucky people in Nashville to see their first live performance in Music City. The venue was Muther's Music Emporium and Jimmy's recollections of that gig in 1974 are really cool to hear!

We hope you've enjoyed the 2018 series of KISSmas in July episodes. Hearing about Your First KISS was a nice way to cap off a fun month every year. We hope you enjoy Your First KISS and SHARE with a friend!

Nashville-based guitarist Mike Hutchens is with us this week to talk about his gig with Peter Criss in the 80s. Given that there is so little known about Peter's activities during the mid-1980's, this talk is an eye opener. How did Peter and Stan Penridge decide to base out of Nashville in 1984? How did they choose the band members? Why was the band named Alliance? Those questions, and many more, are answered by Mike in this discussion.

Peter Criss in the 80s

Peter Criss in the 80s

 

The 1984-1985 era of Peter Criss' life is a bit of a mystery. Reuniting with songwriting partner Stan "Doc" Penridge, they formed a band dubbed The Desperate Men in Nashville that had a much different sound than what KISS fans were accustomed to. Additionally, the band name changed to Alliance in the process. They would make their live debut at a radio festival in Nashville titled One for the Sun. Also on the bill, RATT and Alcatrazz; but this band sounded much different. After the Music City debut, Alliance would go on to perform just a handful of dates after recording some demos. What caused the band to end so quickly? Mike sheds light on the subject.

We want to thank Mike Hutchens for this in-depth discussion of Peter Criss in the 80s. Check out Mike's material in the links below. We hope you enjoyed Peter Criss in the 80s and SHARE with a friend!

We're kicking off KISSmas in July with our favorite Bob Kulick KISS moments. Bob Kulick has a very interesting place in KISStory. His relationship goes back before the band was even complete. Auditioning ahead of the eventually-chosen Ace Frehley, Bob left an indelible impression on Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley that would pay dividends down the road.

Bob Kulick's performances on KISS records are undeniable. His leads on the studio side of ALIVE II, especially on Larger than Life and All American Man, shine through as well as some great playing on Paul Stanley's 1978 KISS solo album.

[caption id="attachment_44752" align="alignright" width="350"]bob kulick, kiss, decibel geek

Bob Kulick

[/caption]

Additionally, Bob's writing talent features on the Unmasked album with his contribution to Naked City; a complex track that digs into Beatles influences and pop sensibilities.

By 1982 KISS were in a confused state and Bob is brought back to help steer the ship in a rockier direction on Killers. His leads on the compilation album would help the band regain a foothold in credibility as they emerged from a very experimental phase.

In addition to us sharing our favorite Bob Kulick KISS moments, we have some cool excerpts of a fun conversation we recently had with the man himself. Between the great songs and great stories, we think you'll agree that KISSmas in July is off to a great start.

Damon Johnson joins us this week for a discussion of his incredible career. At the present time, Damon has his hands full with Black Star Riders and his upcoming solo album Memoirs of an Uprising.

Damon Johnson really brings it in this long-form talk with some great stories from his career and life. From Brother Cane's early days opening for such legends as Van Halen, Aerosmith and Robert Plant among others. Additionally, Damon shares his memories of Brother Cane navigating a shifty musical tide in the 1990's.

[caption id="attachment_44329" align="alignright" width="350"]damon johnson decibel geek podcast memoirs of an uprising

Damon Johnson

[/caption]

Damon's post-Brother Cane career has taken many twists and turns. Collaborations with Sammy Hagar, Faith Hill, Damn Yankees, Carlos Santana, and Slave to the System (featuring members of Queensryche) show the range of talent in his arsenal.

In 2004, Damon Johnson was brought into the Alice Cooper band. In this conversation, he shares his memories of getting the gig, his relationship with Alice, and what he's learned from his time in the band.

2011 saw Damon get to live out another childhood dream as he joined Thin Lizzy. Touring under that banner, he formed a strong chemistry with guitarist Scott Gorham and singer Ricky Warwick. The seeds for Black Star Riders were planted.

Ultimately, Black Star Riders would take the Thin Lizzy spirit and breathe life into a well-oiled machine; releasing three solid albums of material. As of 2018, the catalog, including All Hell Breaks Loose, The Killer Instinct, and Heavy Fire, has built a devoted global fan base.

Aside from band work with living legends, Damon has a great catalog of solo material. His first album, Dust, was released in 2000. Release would come along in 2010 and Echo in 2016. A live album, Birmingham Tonight, represents 2017 for Damon Johnson.

For 2018, Damon has set his sights on another solo album. Memoirs of an Uprising is being funded through Pledge Music. As of this episode release, the project is 87% funded with a deadline two weeks away. Decibel Geek really wants to help push this project over the finish line and we'd like YOUR help. Click the link below to make a pledge. As you'll see, there's a lot of cool options including CDs, Vinyl, and signed items, and tons more.

We're back this week with a humdinger of an episode that features Ralph Viera (aka Dr. Fukk) picking six songs he thinks you should hear! Ralph is a true renaissance man of rock metal. He hosts multiple live shows on That Metal Station and fronts multiple bands including Thrash or Die. Additionally, Ralph is well known in podcasting circles as the host of the Rock and Metal Combat Podcast. Each week Ralph and co-host Ian Wadley bring great knowledge and humor with an edge. We highly recommend it.

Equally interesting this week is our discussion at the top of the show of Vinnie Vincent. As we announced a couple months ago, Vinnie was confirmed and announced as a guest for the Nashville Rock n Pod Expo. A lot of work went into promoting his appearance and things were about to go into overdrive. However, things started changing over the past week and ultimately, Vinnie's appearance was cancelled. We share with you the story of what went down and our take on it. The Nashville invasion is now an aborted mission. Such a shame.

The Nashville Rock n Pod Expo is moving forward and is expected to be a big success. Current/former members of KISS, Korn, Winger, ACCEPT, Joan Jett, Loudness, Bang Tango, Kik Tracee and more will be there. Additionally, producing legends Michael Wagener and Toby Wright are returning. More great guest and event announcements are coming soon. Get all of the info HERE and buy tickets HERE or donate to helping fund the expo HERE.

All $10+ gofundme donors get access to exclusive audio from expo-related podcasts.

We're back this week to share our favorite songs by Sunset Strip legends WASP! In 1982 Blackie Lawless builds WASP was built to shock. Their over-the-top image garnered a ton of attention in an already-growing LA music scene. From Lawless' buzzsaw codpiece to models being tied to a torture rack to throwing raw meat into the audience, WASP takes the blueprint set by Alice Cooper and KISS and elevates it to raunchy new heights. Amid all of the theatricality, though, lay some of the best hard rock music of the decade and beyond.

top 5 wasp songs decibel geek podcast

WASP

 

While Blackie Lawless remains the constant in WASP's career, the band has featured a number of fantastic musicians and incarnations over the years. The early days of the band included bassists Rik Fox and Don Costa and, later, Johnny Rod. Notably, some amazing guitarists have graced albums by WASP including Chris "Mean Man" Holmes, Randy Piper, Darrell Roberts, and Bob Kulick. Additionally, a who's who of rock drumming history have passed through the WASP ranks including Tony Richards, Frankie Banali, Stet Howland, Steve Riley, Mike Dupke, and Randy Black. The band currently surrounding Lawless features Doug Blair, Mike Duda, and Aquiles Priester.

As mentioned in the show, we're showcasing our personal Top 5 WASP Songs. You're getting great tracks from virtually all eras of their more than thirty year career. In conclusion, it's a deep dive into one of the landmark metal bands of the 1980s and beyond.

We hope you enjoy Top 5 WASP Songs and SHARE with a friend!

Gibson Guitar filed for bankruptcy recently. There are a lot of armchair critics. We're no exception. Listen this week to hear our thoughts on the decision making process of a legendary luthier.

Perry, Tyler, and...Spongebob??

Steven Tyler and Joe Perry are nominated for a Tony Award. That's not the weird part. It's in connection to a Spongebob Squarepants musical. Hear our take on this story as well as a discussion on how Spongebob may be the most metal cartoon ever.

Starchild Going Solo Again?

Paul Stanley recently spoke out about the possibility of another solo album as well as his thoughts on doing new music for KISS. Our thoughts on this may surprise you.

Consistent Overkill?

The mean, green killing machine from New Jersey, Overkill, are back at work on another album. In this episode we discuss the amazingly consistent track record of this band; always delivering top flight metal. The followup to The Grinding Wheel is sure to please fans.

All Spectacle and No Substance?

KISS manager Doc McGhee recently ruffled some feathers in the KISS Army with his take that, basically, the band could continue forever due to the fact that they are closer to superheroes than credible bands. His quote seemed to downplay the importance of KISS' musical legacy. Needless to say, we have a few things to say about this.

Head to the Movies?

Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch is headed to the big screen. His new documentary, 'Loud Krazy Love,' will be screened in Dallas and Nashville in May before a wide release in the fall. Part of the promotion for the movie will include Brian making an appearance at the upcoming Nashville Rock n Pod Expo on Saturday August 25, 2018 at the Nashville Palace. He will appear on stage for a panel about the movie and his career as well as an autograph and photo session for fans and recording with various podcasters that will be on-site at the event. More info on the movie can be found HERE and info on the expo and how to gain admission available HERE.

Heavy Metal Mickey Mouse?

In one of the stranger stories from the rock world this week, A new instrumental album of hard-rock covers of classic Disney songs, Disney Super Guitar, has been announced, and it features a jaw-dropping team of world-class guitarists. Zakk Wylde, Paul Gilbert, Orianthi, Phil X, Richie Kotzen, Tak Matsumoto, George Lynch, Mike Orlando, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and Jeff Watson all contribute to the album. Each track on Disney Super Guitar features a backing band comprised of guitarist John Bruno, drummer B.J. Zampa, bassist Chris Vescera and keyboardist Michael Vescera, who co-produced the record with the album’s mastermind, producer Death-Rider. Michael Vescera will also be appearing at the Nashville Rock n Pod Expo. More info HERE.

Veteran drummer Brent Fitz joins us this week for an entertaining talk about his life and career. Born in Winnipeg, Brent  took to music early. After learning drums to a steady soundtrack of bands like RUSH, Fitz was playing the club circuit at age 15. Ultimately, a gig with Canadian band Streetheart gives Brent the confidence to make the leap to Los Angeles in 1996.

conversation with brent fitz decibel geek podcast

Brent Fitz

 

In the 20+ years since arriving in America, Brent Fitz has carved out quite a career. Initially cranking out great tunes with the criminally underrated Union, Brent would join up with LA stalwarts Bulletboys and Vince Neil for road work. Furthermore, this  experience would help prepare Brent for his next challenge, filling the drum chair of Eric Singer in Alice Cooper's band. This long-form interview has lots of great stories from these gigs. Brent's openness and honesty paints a clear picture of what a working musician goes through during a very turbulent time for rock music.

As can be seen within KISS fan circles, Brent is at ground zero for two very cool offshoot projects from members of the band. In 2017, he and fellow Slash band mate joined Bruce and Bob Kulick for a performance on The KISS Kruise. The deep cut-laden set was the talk of the Kruise. His position in the Gene Simmons Band has also been a childhood dream come true. Additionally, it was recently announced that Ace Frehley would be using Gene's band as his backing band on an upcoming tour of Australia. As a result of his childhood KISS fandom, it's entertaining to hear Brent's stories about all of these projects.

This episode features tons of great stories as well as updates on Gene Simmons, the Kulick Brothers, and Slash. It also underscores the importance in rock history of Streetheart (trust us, it's pretty interesting).

The Decibel Geek podcast wants to thank Brent Fitz for such an engaging, entertaining conversation. We hope you enjoy Conversation with Brent Fitz and SHARE with a friend!

In an interview seven years in the making, Vinnie Vincent joins us this week.  Undoubtedly one of the most intense rock records ever made, Vinnie Vincent Invasion was a natural topic choice. Our Albums Unleashed criteria is simple; discuss the making of an album we love with a key player in its creation. The debut album by Vinnie Vincent Invasion is an over-the-top, face-melting masterpiece.

[caption id="attachment_38337" align="alignright" width="350"]vinnie vincent invasion albums unleashed

Vinnie Vincent

[/caption]

Vinnie is incredibly candid in this long-form discussion. After thirty-plus years of others sharing their story on this album, it's namesake goes on on the record to share his memories. Moreover, Vinnie discusses the back story of how Invasion went from being an album title into becoming a band. Additionally, you'll hear him share revelations never heard about the studio environment for this album. Notably, the intense, meticulous nature of how this album was pieced together is an interesting story unto itself.

As can be seen, 2018 is shaping up to be the comeback year of Vinnie Vincent. Since his return at the Atlanta KISS Expo in January, Vinnie has been ever-present online and in public. He's made appearances at Orlando's Spooky Empire convention as well as Gene Simmons' recent Vault Experience stop in Nashville. He's got upcoming appearances at the Chiller Theatre expo as well as Days of the Dead and a special appearance at The Gathering 3 ahead of the KISS Kruise.

Vinnie recently launched his official website. You can keep track of his personal appearances and buy autographed merchandise at the online store. He's also very interactive with fans on his official Facebook fan page.

The Decibel Geek Podcast truly thanks Vinnie Vincent for appearing on the show. Additional thanks to Randy Dietrich for his help setting up this interview.

Guitarist Mick Sweda and engineer Toby Wright join the guys this week to reflect on 1988's Bulletboys album. Produced by the Ted Templeman for Warner Bros Records, the album reached #34 on the Billboard 200 chart. Correspondingly, the band received heavy rotation from MTV. The videos for 'Smooth Up in Ya' and 'For the Love of Money' were ever-present at the time.

bulletboys albums unleashed decibel geek podcast

Bulletboys

 

Mick shares the story of how he, bassist Lonnie Vencent and vocalist Marq Torien exited King Kobra. With the addition of drummer Jimmy D'Anda, the band started turning heads quickly in Hollywood, including that of Templeman. Between the chops of the members and an essential image, Bulletboys were armed with plenty of ammunition.

Working as an engineer in 1988, Toby shares his memories from the production side of things including an instance of him showing Mick and the guys reels from the recently-completed 'And Justice for All' album by Metallica.

The production of Bulletboys took place at One on One Studios in Hollywood, CA. In this episode, Mick and Toby discuss some differences of opinion on certain aspects of recording and the lessons learned from that process. Additionally, the guys give their thoughts on working with producer Ted Templeman.

Next, we move on to get Mick's memories on the songwriting process with a track-by-track discussion. Bulletboys features ten very strong tracks. In contrast to other bands of the era, there isn't a single ballad on the album. Nonetheless, the album thrives in spite of the expected with songs full of attitude and swagger.

Bulletboys 1988

 

Although lead singer Marq Torien has made certain claims about the songwriting on this album, Mick takes time to share his side of the story. In light of Mick's stories today, it makes for an interesting picture of the making of this album.

Ultimately, the past came back around to the present. Mick reformed with Jimmy D'Anda and Lonnie Vencent to form Lies Deceit & Treachery; a new band with a classic sound. Check out more on them HERE.

DBG VIP and Nashville Rock n Pod Expo donor Scott Smith joins us to celebrate Women's History Month with Queens of Noize 3! While the rock genre is considered a man's world by many, our guest is here to help dispel that myth. With this in mind, you are getting a unique audio experience this week. As proven by previous legends such as the Runaways, Lita Ford, Joan Jett, and others, the now and future of women in rock is promising.

Queens of Noize 3

In contrast to the past, currently there are a ton of female-led bands in the rock and metal genres. In this hour-plus episode, Scott is sharing just a fraction of the great rock that he's discovered from female-fronted bands. You're getting great rock from The Amorettes, Damone, Thundermother, Fireflight, Tequila Mockingbyrd, The Agony, Skarlett Riot, The Nearly Deads, Fit for Rivals, and Diemonds. It's a solid slab of great rock as well as discussion.

Additionally, we talk about some of the new breed of rock coming out of Frontiers such as Shiraz Lane, Animal Drive, Perfect Plan, and Doomsday Outlaw.

We're back this week with more killer rock tracks and talk with Radio Sucks Radio Show v32! If you are new to the podcast, this particular format is easy to explain. Radio sucks and has for a long time. The limited amount of artists coupled with the limited amount of songs by those artists makes radio a frustrating experience. Additionally, the ignorance of new material by classic artists makes no sense at all. Do we really need to hear Rock n Roll All Nite again?

Robert Sedler reviewed Decibel Geek Podcast — 5 star

February 1 at 4:59pm ·

I started listening to podcasts in early 2017 and immediately went looking for a decent rock/metal show. I found a few that were forgettable, and a few that were downright awful. I stumbled upon Decibel Geek and noticed that they had an entire episode dedicated to the mighty Y&T. I said to myself, “OK, this is worth checking out”.

I love being right, and boy was I ever right.

These guys freakin’ GET IT. They cover a wide spectrum of everything that rocks, and have a good knowledge of some obscure bands that never get enough love. They live what they love, and you can tell that their love for the genre is as real as it gets.

Keep it up guys. You've got a great show, and you’ve got a listener for life. \m/

In an ongoing quest to make you question your sanity, we're back this week with Bizarro Covers. The concept is simple; hard rock and metal bands covering songs that are anything but. After doing 7 previous volumes of this theme, we had our work cut out for us. We think you'll enjoy the results. Who doesn't want to hear heavier versions of Miley Cyrus, Daft Punk, Roxette, Neil Young, and many more?

I've been listening to podcasts since 2005 & tried to find rock podcasts. There were a handful out there but they weren't quite what I was looking for. Finally I found Decibel Geek & they checked all the boxes on my list! Chris & Aaron have great chemistry & passion for music. The show has everything you want the music you love, the hidden gems you missed back in the day, & the amazing new music that's needs to be played for the world. They do great interviews with players big & small in the industry. Even if it's just the two bantering, it's always entertaining.If creating a great podcast isn't enough. They've started a movement of fellow podcasts & an exhaustively rewarding website full of all the content you need. Decibel Geek is the hub for all the music content you need. Thanks to Decibel Geek I'm listening to more music than ever. Thanks for all the hard work, guys.

Their interviews are the stuff of legend and you can always count on them to bring a little levity to your day. In short, the Decibel Geek Podcast makes my pants tight, even if they failed to mention my Liquid Ass purchase via the Amazon link.

The Countdown to Vindication is on as we share our Top 5 Vinnie Vincent Solos! Additionally, we're sharing our thoughts on the Atlanta KISS Expo which is just days away. It's been over twenty years since Vinnie has appeared in public and this week he's doing it in a big way. The now-sold out Atlanta KISS Expo is sure to be a real experience for KISS and Vinnie fans. What has he been up to? What are his plans for the future? Moreover, did he save his former employers?

iTunes Review:

Great listen

by Rocr2 on Jan 10, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

This pod cast gets a five star just for turning me onto Orchid! Can’t even begin to imagine the prep time these guys put into a show bringing a great wealth of knowledge ,humor and entertaining . It’s also refreshing to hear a music related podcast where the host does not talk about himself for half of it. Amazing variety of bands , songs , sounds , interesting bio , little known facts and even some useless information packed into each show. Their passion shows through on every episode!!!!! If your not a subscriber you are missing out.

Joe Bernstein reviewed Decibel Geek Podcast — 5 star

I just discovered Decibel Geek podcasts. As a child of the '70's and '80's, this is right up my alley. I drive truck for a living, and prefer to listen to things to keep my brain engaged, and this certainly fits the bill. Your passion and knowledge for the music we all love makes the podcasts enjoyable. But the interaction amongst yourselves, with the sense of humor, respect (for each other and the guests) as well as love for the deep cuts and out-of-the-ordinary, make this podcast a necessity. Thank you.

If you think Rock is dead, then we have three hours of audio that prove you wrong. The Best of 2017 features twenty songs from the best Rock and Metal albums released over the past year.  We've selected our top 10 albums and are going to spin tracks from each in a 3-hour marathon episode. Additionally, you'll get discussion on some the events that made 2017 a banner year for Decibel Geek.

Best of 2017

[/caption]

Several veteran acts released strong material in 2017. Alice Cooper proved he still has the macabre touch with the release of Paranormal; an album that features a wide variety of sounds and special guests. Did it make our lists? You'll have to listen to find out. Moreover, other seasoned artists including Living Colour, Mark Slaughter, LA Guns, Warrant, Overkill, Jack Russell, and Vain released new material. We discuss all of these albums and where they rank on our lists.

One new trend in the hard rock world these days are supergroup projects and 2017 had a number of them. Of note, releases from Revolution Saints, Sons of Apollo, Black Country Communion, and Tokyo Motor Fist came out.

Also new for 2017 were offerings from Night Demon, Every Mother's Nightmare, Klassik 78, GWAR, Bigfoot, The Darkness, and Danko Jones. With this in mind, we have a lot to get to. We hope you enjoy Best of 2017 and SHARE with a friend!
