Decibel Geek Podcast
We're giving you a KISSmas miracle with yet another Vinnie Vincent-themed episode. This time we're covering the recent Merry Metal Christmas show.
 
Chris and Aaron had lunch with several attendees before the event and got a few of them on mic to share their KISStories and their expectations of what was to come.
 
You'll hear from Kruisefest promoter Neil Davis, podcaster Mike Brunn and Vincent Larussa, Rosie Luck and her son Aleister and frequent KISSFAQ board poster Rip Rokken.
 
 
 
After the lunch interviews Chris chats with another attendee about his experience at the Merry Metal Christmas event from start to finish.
 
Today's guest Rick (aka Shecky, Poserboy71 online) has been a VV fan since the 80's, witnessed the Invasion play live in 1988, and is very well versed on Vinnie's playing and gear over the past 30+ years. He's also a trusted friend of Chris and Aaron. With so much speculation on Vinnie's playing ability due to a shroud of secrecy surrounding these events, we'll get Rick's take on what went down at S.I.R.
 
So, Did Vinnie Shredd the Halls? You'll have to listen to find out!
 
Please SHARE this episode with your friends on social media. Merry KISSmas from Chris and Aaron and everyone at Decibel Geek!

This week we dive into a time of great change as we pick our Top 5 80's Aerosmith Songs! To describe the decade of the 80's when it comes to the bad boys from Boston is tough. Perhaps, it's best to lean on the reverse of an old analogy of 'in like a lamb, out like a lion.' Although hugely successful in the early to mid 70's, Aerosmith entered the 80's with a thud. The decade-closing 'Night in the Ruts' did little to gain chart position and resulted in Joe Perry's exit from the group. By 1982, even Brad Whitford had had enough and exited the band early in the sessions for 'Rock in a Hard Place' leaving replacement guitarist Jimmy Crespo to shoulder the load.

After finally reuniting in 1985, the band issued 'Done with Mirrors' to another tepid response. However, the fuse was lit for the explosion that would take place in 1986 when genres crossed. Upstart rappers Run DMC collaborated with the band for a cover of Walk this Way that took the world by storm.

1987's 'Permanent Vacation' and 1989's 'Pump' would solidify arguably the biggest comeback story in music history. 

This week Aaron and Chris each pick their favorite 5 songs from the 80's Aerosmith catalog. Be sure to tell us YOUR Top 5 in the comments section!
