Decibel Geek Podcast (podcast)

Shawn Franklin joins the guys this week to discuss his continuing involvement with Anthrax; this time for the 1988 classic State of Euphoria! This thrashterpiece was released on September 19, 1988 and helped cement Anthrax's place in The Big 4. With killer tracks like Be All End All, Who Cares Wins, Misery Loves Company, and the single Antisocial, State of Euphoria reached No.30 on the Billboard charts and would be certified Gold a year later.

State of Euphoria

Shawn Franklin, as you'll also hear in our past Albums Unleashed for Spreading the Disease, has been given the enviable task of sifting through drummer Charlie Benante's Anthrax audio archive. In this 30th Anniversary deluxe edition of State of Euphoria you're getting some incredible material. Disc 1 features a remastered version of the studio album as well as bonus material recorded during the sessions. Disc 2 features Charlie's Archive; tapes from the man himself that Shawn worked on. He painstakingly assembled the best parts of the tapes to give you, the listener, an audio evolution of the songs on the album. From idea tapes to rehearsals to recording to final mix, you'll get a backstage pass to Anthrax in the late 80's as they put State of Euphoria together. 

We appreciate Shawn Franklin joining us this week and encourage you to purchase the new 30th Anniversary Deluxe edition of Anthrax State of Euphoria!

We're wishing you a Happy Halloween this week with our Type O Negative Discussion! Patreon DBG VIP and donor to the ROCKNPOD Expo Andy Connors joins us to break down the history of this legendary Brooklyn band.

The roots of Type O Negative stretch back to the 1980's when Peter (Ratajczyk) Steele and Josh Silver perform in local metal band Fallout. This would lead to Roadrunner act Carnivore and then morph into Type O Negative with Steele, Silver, drummer Sal Abruscato, and Kenny Hickey.

Type O Negative

In this long form discussion, Andy shares with us the history of Type O Negative. From the debut album Slow, Deep, and Hard through 2007's Dead Again, they blazed a trail of dark, sludgy metal that had a sound all its own. Additionally, you'll hear personal song picks from our guest relating to each album in the discography.

It's a moody hour-plus of music and talk for you this week. Turn out the lights, kick back with some candy, and enjoy Type O Negative Discussion and SHARE with a friend!

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!

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.

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.

Nashville Rock n Pod Expo donor Kevin Williams joins us this week for a talk about Japanese Metal! In this extended episode, Kevin has the knowledge and the tunes you need. Visual Kei, extreme image coupled with music, is a dominant force in Japan. Kevin gives you the backstory of what leads up to the Visual Kei movement in Japan and spins a number of great metal tunes.

Japanese metal and its history is incredibly interesting. Uniquely, western bands like Black Sabbath and KISS had a definite impact on the culture. With this in mind, Kevin is connecting the dots on how that early influence lead to Visual Kei. As a result, you're getting some fantstic music from artists such as X-Japan, Exist-Trace, Vamps, MUCC, Big Bites, Quaff, Dir En Grey, Aldious, and Maximum the Hormone.

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.

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!

We are back this week to give you our take on current rock news with New Noize V2. There are some interesting stories coming from the world of rock and we're going to cover some of our favorites.

Gibson Broke?

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.

[caption id="attachment_38552" align="alignright" width="350"]decibel geek new noize v2

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 albums unleashed decibel geek podcast

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.

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?

The Kings of Hard Rock & Metal Podcasts

by Ashcrafty on Jan 15, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

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.

Chris and Aaron put on one of the best rock & roll podcasts this side of the TCP/IP stack. I defy you to find a better couple of lads. 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.

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

January 12 at 2:16pm ·

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.

[caption id="attachment_35287" align="alignright" width="350"]best of 2017 decibel geek podcast

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!

The guys are back this week after realizing their Canadian friends were too busy with their own podcast to cover their normal Thanksgiving duties. For five years, Rich "Meister" Dillon and Wally "Gator" Norton devotedly filled in on the last week of Thanksgiving so Chris and Aaron could enjoy time with their families and celebrate their holiday. However, this year the calls and emails went unanswered and the guys were forced to go back out and knock out an episode. The wives are none too pleased.

[caption id="attachment_33821" align="alignright" width="300"]those hosers are fired

Those Hosers are Fired

[/caption]

Since Rich and Wally are so caught up in their new CGCM podcast, the guys decided to just rip them off and do some of their routines (with a little tweaking for needed improvement). You'll get some special segments and a Playlist Battle that featured songs picked by each host. Artists spun include UDO, Edguy, Megadeth, Anthrax, and a bunch more. Be sure to keep up with the Decibel Geek facebook page for a poll you can vote in to pick the winning playlist.

The Canadians seem pretty full of themselves. They seem to think they don't need the exposure that Decibel Geek can bring. To that, the guys say "Those Hosers are Fired!"

When Chris shows up with a box covered in question marks and filled with a wide variety of music, it makes for an interesting episode. After winning a box full of great music at the Nashville Rock n Pod Expo courtesy of the Rock Strikes Ten podcast, the guys decide to pick some of their favorite tunes from the Mystery Box for play this week. If you haven't heard of Rock Strikes Ten, you're missing out. Host Joey Haynie spins ten songs that span numerous genres and educates you at the same time. It's a great show that Chris and Aaron HIGHLY recommend.

The Decibel Geek Podcast is a must listen every week for me. I became a faithful listener about a year ago for several reasons.

1) The Music: I always get to listen to great music. The variety of tunes featured is top notch. Into some of the bands more than others, but the exposure to music I haven't heard before is always appreciated.

2) The Guests: Chris and Aaron have what it takes to make an interview worth
listening to. The stars and guest that are on are always entertaining. The insight and humor is always appreciated. I learn something I didn't know almost every time.

3) The Variety: I love themed shows, Toddzilla, KISSmas in July, The featured shows (RUSH, AC/DC) and especially the Radio Sucks episodes. A huge shout
out to the Y&T episode you had. They have always been a top 3 band for me and it was great for them to get the exposure they deserve.

Thats about it. I will continue to make this podcast a weekly must listen. Great Job guys!!

Rating: ★★★★★

I know, what you want! You want, what I got! And that's a 5 star review. This is a great podcast, I love the Albums Unleashed features, the multitude of Vinnie Vincent shows, and the annual KISSmas in July specials. This show has turned me on to some bands I didn't know much about, specifically Tora Tora and Roxy Blue, which I had only read about before. I can't recommend this podcast enough.

Nashville music scene legend and dear friend of the show Todd Austin returns for Six Songs Toddzilla Thinks You Should Hear.

If you are new to the show and unfamiliar with Toddzilla, be sure to familiarize yourself with his first two appearances on Decibel Geek. His first appearance, Roth-Era Van Halen Discussion, introduced the listeners to a master storyteller. Todd's memories of growing up a Van Halen fan in the late 70's and his hilarious stories of seeing the band live made him an instant hit to Decibel Geek listeners.

[caption id="attachment_32949" align="alignright" width="300"]Six Songs Toddzilla decibel geek podcast

Six Songs Toddzilla

[/caption]

Toddzilla's second appearance on the show focused on his story. Conversation with Toddzilla included stories of Todd's many years as a professional musician (including highs and lows), his unique appearance, run-ins with legends such as Robert Plant and Billy Gibbons, a strange music store encounter with Vinnie Vincent, and an Ace Frehley story and impression that will have you cackling like a spaceman from Jendell.

Things were no laughing matter, however, earlier this year when Todd's life was turned upside down due to a house fire that destroyed his home, most of his belongings, and nearly all of his beloved pets. The music community (including many Decibel Geek listeners) rallied around Todd to chip in to a GoFundMe account that was put in place to help Todd and his partner Abbie replace much of what was lost.

In this Six Songs episode, Toddzilla gives us an update on where things stand in the recovery process, stories about the fundraiser and an incredible benefit concert, details on his projects including Funkhammer, Jones World, and Purple Masquerade, as well as fantastic stories that coincide with each of his Six Songs choices. We wrap things up this week by spinning one of our personal favorite Funkhammer tunes.

We hope you enjoy Six Songs Toddzilla Thinks You Should Hear and SHARE with a friend!

Chris & Aaron return this week for a Vinnie Vincent Discussion. With the internet ablaze in excitement for the upcoming Atlanta KISS Expo that will feature the ankh warrior as special guest, the guys thought it would be fun to discuss Vinnie's history. In this long-form discussion your hosts talk about Vinnie's early years. Born into a musical family in Bridgeport, CT; Vincent John Cusano took to the guitar at a very early age. In this Vinnie Vincent Discussion, Chris and Aaron talk about Vinnie's early musical connections including work with Dan Hartman, The Edgar Winter Group, and Treasure.

Vinnie's pre-KISS career is an interesting subject. After working with Treasure, Vinnie headed to Los Angeles, where he became a staff songwriter for the hit tv show 'Happy Days.' In this Vinnie Vincent Discussion, Chris and Aaron discuss his time working on the show as well as his work on the spinoff 'Joanie Loves Chachi.'

[caption id="attachment_32393" align="alignright" width="300"]Vinnie Vincent Discussion

Vinnie Vincent Discussion

[/caption]

An interesting pre-KISS project took place next with Vinnie joining forces with ex-New England members Hirsh Gardner, Jimmy Waldo, and Gary Shea. The project was called Warrior and had Vinnie not only playing guitar but singing lead vocals. The guys discuss this short-lived, but awesome, project. You can get these tracks in CD form from Cherry Red Records HERE.

The guys also discuss Vinnie's time in KISS, adding guitar work and songwriting to 1982's 'Creatures of the Night' as well as 1983's 'Lick it Up.' A lot has been written and speculated about this era of the band. Accounts vary depending on who you ask. In this episode, the guys discuss both sides of the issues.

Upon Vinnie's exit from KISS, he got to work building the Vinnie Vincent Invasion. As per usual, this was also a sticky process with numerous differing accounts from members and former members. While the first album was amazing, it was fraught with drama before it was even released. Chris and Aaron discuss the first album, the lead singer situation, and the tracks.

The sophomore album from the Invasion, All Systems Go, would be Mark Slaughter's first and the band's last. With a more commercial sound and a toned down look, it appeared the band was poised for breakthrough success. Unfortunately, the band was falling apart by the time the album was released. The guys discuss the greatness of this second album, the drama behind some of it, and give their take on why this band should have been much bigger.

The ensuing years after the Invasion split were difficult for Vinnie Vincent. Through different struggles, some good did come from this period; highlighted by his brief songwriting reunion with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley for 'Revenge'. These collaborations yielded some great results such as I Just Wanna, Heart of Chrome, and the amazing Unholy. The guys discuss this period of Vinnie's life and career and also touch on the Guitarmageddon/Guitars from Hell sessions that are still unreleased to this day.

In the past couple months, a flury of Vinnie Vincent news has gotten fans incredibly excited. The announcement of his appearance at the upcoming Atlanta KISS Expo in January of 2018, has fans from across the globe very excited. Chris and Aaron share in this excitement and discuss what they think is going to happen at the expo as well as theories about what Vinnie may be up to going forward. There have also been a number of Vinnie fans that are Decibel Geek listeners that have asked if Chris and Aaron will be attending the expo. The guys will address that status as well as communications between Chris and the promoter in this episode.

It's an exciting time to be a Vinnie Vincent fan. We hope you enjoy Vinnie Vincent Discussion and SHARE with a friend.

Facebook Review:

5 Stars - from Gino Ames

A regular fan since the early days and it has always been my favorite! I love the interviews but why I come back is the hosts. Chris & Aaron’s chemistry and friendship makes the show for me. Great topics, audio quality, consistency. Five high flying METAL horns!

When a planned episode gets shelved due to audio issues, we improvise this week with KISS Lightning Round - Ep291. We put out a last-minute call for KISS-related questions and topics and, boy, did you guys respond! In this 2 hour-plus loose discussion, we tip a few beers and try to address as many KISS-related topics that the listeners through our way via the Decibel Geek facebook page.

We can talk KISS non-stop and this week is no different. However, we definitely disagree on a number of facets of the Hottest Band in the Land. In this long-form talk, we touch on all sorts of subjects including the current lineup makeup situation, the possibilities that would've altered history had Vinnie Vincent stayed in the band, why Chris won't see KISS live anymore, and the limitations that certain members of the band are facing.

It's two hours-plus of the nerdiest KISS discussion this side of Abner's laboratory. We hope you enjoy KISS Lightning Round - Ep291 and SHARE with a friend!

KISSmas in July kicks off with an in-depth talk with members of the Gene Simmons Band. Guitarists Ryan Cook, Jeremy Asbrock, and Philip Shouse have been garnering rave reviews since their debut in March of 2017. Those names should be familiar to Decibel Geek listeners and readers as they've made numerous appearances on the podcast to discuss The Big Rock Show, Hair of the Dog, and Guitar Duos. They are also members of Thee Rock n Roll Residency; a weekly covers show that has been wowing Nashville crowds with its spot-on renditions of classic rock hits and deep cuts. Additionally, Thee Rock n Roll Residency has a rotating cast of musicians that come from all eras of rock history.

[caption id="attachment_30090" align="alignright" width="300"]Gene Simmons band decibel geek podcast

Gene Simmons Band

[/caption]

The Gene Simmons Band has been impressing die-hard KISS fans at every show on this tour. What started as a six show commitment has turned into a full-on world tour with more dates being released recently.

In this conversation, the Gene Simmons Band shares the circumstances that led to them being hired. Moreover, they discuss their personal KISStories and their take on the band's history.

One of the bigger reasons for the success of the Gene Simmons Band has been the wealth of deep KISS cuts that are being performed. Songs such as Charisma, Got Love for Sale, and Almost Human among many others have been thrilling KISS fans en masse. In this discussion, the guys tell Chris and Aaron how those songs were chosen as well as what songs have been rehearsed and are possibly going to be included in future setlists. Furthermore, they discuss the upcoming addition of drummer Brent Fitz to the band. Brent is a member of the extended KISS family tree; known for his work in the band Union with Bruce Kulick.

Gene Simmons plans to release a massive box set later in 2017. The set is to contain a large amount of demo and unreleased material. In this long-form talk, the guys share some details they've learned about the box set and plans for it.

Donnie Vie appears on the Decibel Geek Podcast this week for a revealing conversation.  This long-form discussion covers a life and career of ups, downs, triumphs, rejections, celebration, turmoil and ultimately, rediscovery. Vie, known by many as the controversial front man for Chicago greats Enuff Z'nuff has churned out an impressive catalog of work. However, demons (both individually and collectively) seemed to overshadow the band at every step. Shifting musical climates,  substance abuse, changing members, and even death threatened to eliminate Enuff Z'nuff but the band pushed on; eventually without Donnie Vie. It's been an interesting ride to say the least.

[caption id="attachment_29797" align="alignright" width="300"]Conversation with Donnie Vie

Donnie Vie

[/caption]

In this long-form discussion, Donnie Vie discusses the band's early days including how he met bassist Chip Z'nuff, his thoughts on late-guitarist Derek Frigo, wild gigs and after-gig activity, and tons more. Additionally, Vie discusses the stories behind many Enuff Z'nuff songs as well as his thoughts on how songwriting credits were given.

Also in this long-form talk, Vie discusses his current situation including how he's adapting to his newfound sobriety. Additionally, he sheds light on some interesting projects that he's currently working on both musically and otherwise. It's a deep dive into one of the most unique people to ever appear on the Decibel Geek Podcast.

Chris & Aaron continue the love-fest for Geddy, Neil, and Alex this week with RUSH Covered in Metal. There are a lot of cover versions of RUSH songs out there by a lot of different artists. What your hosts found out in research for this episode is that there are a lot of bad RUSH covers. However, this week you're gonna get the best gems that they could find in a sea of mediocrity. Clearly, RUSH is a very difficult band to successfully cover. Try to put too much of your own spin on it and you trash what people remember. Try to straight up mimic them and you come off sounding like a poor imitation. This week you'll get harder-edged, unique (but not too unique) renditions of RUSH classics.

RUSH Covered in Metal featured covers performed by Mark Slaughter, George Lynch, Sebastian Bach, Michael Schenker, Skid Row, Machine Head, Local H, Allegaeon, Jani Lane, Billy Talent, and Mindless Self Indulgence.

Chris & Aaron return this week to discuss The Heavier Side of RUSH; songs that kick a little harder from the legendary Canadian trio. RUSH, formed in 1968, and solidified in 1971 with a lineup of Geddy Lee (bass/vocals), Alex Lifeson (guitar), and John Rutsey (drums) would find aid in manager Ray Danniels and producer Terry Brown. The self-titled 1974 debut album was filled with hard rock numbers reminiscent of Led Zeppelin. The band would ultimately break on the strength of the song 'Working Man' receiving airplay on WMMS in Cleveland. Rutsey, however, would have to retire from the road due to health complications. Enter Neil Peart. The multi-talented drummer had incredible skill not only on the kit but would go on to become the band's principal lyricist. From that point, RUSH carved their own path; releasing trailblazing albums that straddled the worlds of hard and progressive rock; building a rabid following along the way. 40-plus years later and RUSH sit, rightfully, in the upper echelon of rock music history.

In this long-form RUSH-themed episode, the guys share their personal take on RUSH's history, their influence, their legacy, and more. They also spin some of their favorite heavier RUSH tunes.

DBG VIP and Decibel Geek writer, Steven Michael, joins Chris and Aaron for Under the ACDC Influence; a deep dive into bands that were influenced by the Australian hard rock giants. Steve and the guys discuss their love for ACDC, the evidence of their influence on rock and roll history, and spin a bunch of tracks by a bunch of bands that were influenced by Angus Young and company. Many fads come and go, and with them so do many bands. What is the flavor of the week will soon be a punchline to a joke told decades later. ACDC never fell into that trap. Through numerous trends including Prog Rock, Punk Rock, Disco, New Wave, Glam Metal, and Grunge, the Australian-born legends stayed the course; continuing to pump out headbanging, hooky rock n roll. This consistency has produced an influence that has transcended multiple generations of fans.

Under the ACDC Influence

In this jam packed episode you'll get tracks from Jackyl, Four Horsemen, Voodoo Piston, Ugly Kid Joe, The Treatment, Rhino Bucket, Koritni, Black Aces, Airbourne, Dirty Looks, ACCEPT, Guns N Roses, Rose Tattoo, 77, and Krokus!

Stevie Rachelle joins the guys this week for Albums Unleashed - TUFF What Comes Around Goes Around. In this long-form discussion, Stevie discusses the circumstances that led to him fronting TUFF. Originally from Wisconsin, Rachelle was bitten by the bug early and headed west to Los Angeles in search of fame. However, it's not instant success. In this talk, Rachelle reflects on his audition with TUFF, what led to his hiring, and the band's rise on the Sunset Strip.

TUFF - Albums Unleashed What Comes Around

TUFF - Albums Unleashed What Comes Around

TUFF would slug it out on the Sunset Strip for a while; building their core audience at clubs such as Gazarri's, The Whisky, Perkins Palace, and The Country Club. During this time, they'd be rejected by dozens of labels. Determined, the band would continue to tread the boards on regional tours through the Southern and Midwestern United States until Atlantic Records came calling.

What Comes Around Goes Around, released in 1991, was produced by Howard Benson and mixed by Sir Arthur Payson.

This episode features some great behind-the-scenes stories. We hope you enjoy Albums Unleashed - TUFF What Comes Around with Stevie Rachelle and SHARE with a friend!

Another DBG VIP feature that you get free this week is the album tournament. In this segment, the guys each pick 16 CD's from the massive collection in the Decibel Geek studio. The CD's are pitted head to head in matches until one winner emerges. The tournament in this week's episode is a tough one that causes some difficult decisions to be made.

Chris and Aaron have a great episode planned out for next week but wanted to get an episode out this week and thought you'd like to get a taste of what the VIP's are getting. We hope you enjoy Skype's Down - Ep281 and SHARE with a friend!

Guitarist and KISS co-writer Scott Van Zen sits down with the guys this week for a long-form talk about his life, guitar playing, and the experience of writing with our favorite demon, Gene Simmons. In this hour-plus discussion, Scott talks about his early years in central California. Inspired by a wide cross-section of guitarists ranging from Jeff Beck to Johnny Winter to Ted Nugent to Eddie Van Halen; Scott Van Zen worked his way through the ranks to become one of the California's best guitarists in the 1980's and 90's. A musical partnership with singer Ken Tamplin would lead Van Zen to a friendship with KISS' Gene Simmons. In this discussion, Scott talks about Gene's influence not only in songwriting, but in business. His advice has paid dividends for the guitarist over the years.

The guys go back in time this week as they bring you 1982 Year in Review Pt1. In this long-form trip through the first half of the year, Chris & Aaron cover a lot of ground. 1982 saw some pretty historic beginnings in technology and pop culture including the Commodore 64 and Late Night with David Letterman. 1982 was also a year of loss in the entertainment community. Notably, the losses of John Belushi and Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads left their mark on the movie and music industries. Speaking of Osbourne, he would cement his status as a controversial figure with two news-making incidents that shocked many.

1982 Year in Review Pt1 also boats a lot of great music. The first half of the year included releases from Magnum, Nazareth, UFO, Iron Maiden, Tank, Scorpions, Misfits, Van Halen, Motorhead, Uriah Heep, Cheap Trick, Status Quo, and many more. In this episode, the guys break it all down and cover the sports, movies, and pop culture of 1982. And, as always, classic commercials!

Rikki Rockett joins the guys this week for Albums Unleashed Poison Look What the Cat Dragged In. In this long-form discussion, Rikki shares stories from the early days of Poison including the decision to move from Pennsylvania to Hollywood in the early 1980's. Also in the episode, Rikki talks about the departure of original guitarist Matt Smith and an audition process that would go down to a head to head battle between Slash and CC DeVille.

In this Albums Unleashed Poison Look What the Cat Dragged In special, Rikki reflects on the recording process of the album. Producer Rick Browde was on board early for the sessions but things got tense quickly due to creative differences. In this episode, Rikki also discusses the struggle to survive in a Hollywood scene that was very unforgiving. Those struggles would be played out lyrically in some of the songs. While the album was recorded on a meager budget and on limited time, it would go on to spawn three big singles and sell 4 million copies worldwide.

Albums Unleashed Poison

Albums Unleashed Look What the Cat Dragged In also features a track-by-track breakdown of the album including song inspirations and production techniques used. It's an hour-plus of discussion about a remarkable album from a very transitional time in popular music.

Before we get to the interview, Chris & Aaron give you the inside details of the upcoming Nashville Rock n Pod Expo.

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 decibel geek podcast

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.

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/

I love you guys. Recently you turned me on to so many things, Detective, Ace Frehley solo stuff, too many to mention. I write the names down in the middle of the night. I have been drumming since 8th grade , or grade 8 as we say in Canada. I am a VP stuffy banker now but fortunate enough to still drum with my band The Big Wigs at charity events in the big T.O. We cover Cheap Trick, ACDC , Bowie etc . mostly 70s. I am am a little older than you guys so I remember seeing the made for TV KISS movie, premier on my parents fat box TV.

Drummer Bobby Rock joins the guys this week for Albums Unleashed Vinnie Vincent Invasion All Systems Go. In this long-form discussion, Bobby goes into detail on the tour leading up to the recording of this sophomore album; including his recollection of equipment being confiscated due to a pending lawsuit filed by former New England drummer Hirsh Gardner against Vinnie Vincent.

A lot of tension was building around the recording of All Systems Go with pressure coming down from Chrysalis label heads pushing for more restrained playing from Vincent. That tension would grow to a boil as label moves and band machinations began to cause a separation between the members of the band. In this long form discussion, Bobby shares his feelings on this pressure as well as how the band reacted to it through the recording process.

albums unleashed all systems go decibel geek podcast

All Systems Go

In this Albums Unleashed special, Bobby Rock discusses the songs on All Systems Go and why certain songs didn't get the push they didn't deserve such as the lack of video for opening track, Ashes to Ashes. Other items discussed include a managerial change in the band during the recording process as well as a tour that was in the works with another guitar hero that fell through. Near the end of the discussion, Bobby is asked about his interest in the off-chance that he'd be asked to be part of an Invasion reunion. His answer might surprise you.

Bobby Rock is currently drumming for Lita Ford. You can keep track of Bobby at the links below. We hope you enjoy Albums Unleashed Vinnie Vincent Invasion All Systems Go and SHARE with a friend!

Chris and Aaron return this week to countdown their Top 10 albums of the year that was in Best of 2016 - Ep269. In this 2 hour-plus episode, your hosts find themselves looking back on a year that had many highs as well as lows. The music world lost a ton of talent; causing many to label it the "worst year ever." While those losses certainly stung the guys as well, they prove in this episode that there was a ton of great music released in 2016 including albums from legends such as Metallica, Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies, and Testament.

They Got it Right (This Time)!

Rating: ★★★★★

Great podcast! They have finally hit their stride! For those of you who don't know, these dudes have been at this podcasting thing for quite some time. They may have changed their names since their original podcasts, but I was able to figure out their ruse. ("Czynszak" - really,... that's the best you could come up with?) You see back in the day, Chirs Sinsack and Aaron Pinto hosted a great YES podcast called "Close to the Edge of Our Lonely Hearts". Unfortunately, it only lasted a couple of episodes, because the shows lasted for 12 hours due to the self-indulgent nature of prog rock. ITunes cyber police pulled it for breaking bandwidth rules and the guys were without a show. A few months later, I stumbled on to a Juice Newton fanatics podcast called "Juice Box" and recognized some familiar voices. However, that show didn't last long either since Aaron kept falling asleep during the taping and because of the fact that there were only 3 listeners (Chris apparently had multiple accounts). Then I heard this fantastic podcast called Decibel Geek that covered all things Hard Rock & Metal (and covered it really well!). Although the names had been changed to protect the innocent, it was definitely Chris & Aaron. These guys do a hell of a job bringing fresh perspectives to the genre and a lot of it's sub-genres in the metal world. On a weekly basis you can expect great interviews, amazing knowledge of the bands & eras and lots of laughs with guys that seem like your friends back home. 5 starz all the way!

The son of a pedal steel player and bus driver, Jeremy was raised in the music industry. His crib was a road case, literally! Raised in the Nashville area, he was constantly surrounded by talent from all genres of music and quickly made inroads as a bus driver and drummer.

The guys also wrap things up with a discussion with Gary about what Eric would think about the music business these days, what he would be doing if he were around today, as well as talk about a long-rumored reunion tour in 1990 that didn't come to fruition. The Decibel Geek podcast wants to thank Gary Corbett for sharing more great Eric Carr memories and we look forward to his next appearance.

Former KISS keyboardist and friend of Eric Carr joins the guys this week to celebrate the life of the late drummer on the 25th anniversary of his loss. Gary joined KISS in 1987 for the Crazy Nights tour and remained with the band throughout 1990's Hot in the Shade tour. During this period he developed a close bond with Eric Carr as the two would spend much of their free time entertaining each other on the road. In this long form talk, Gary shares stories from his friendship with Eric including some behind the scenes stories that should be new to many KISS fans.

Also, Gary shows Chris and Aaron some home videos from his days in KISS and gets their reactions. Footage viewed includes an impromptu 40th birthday party in Eric's hotel room attended by Eric, Gary, Gene Simmons, Bruce Kulick and then-girlfriend Carrie Stevens. Other candid footage discussed includes a golf outing in Ireland with Paul Stanley and a famous British singer he was dating at the time.

The guys also view and discuss some cool live footage from the Monsters of Rock tour of Europe in 1988 as well as shows on the Hot in the Shade tour. This conversation went very long and was a lot of fun thus, the necessity to break it up into parts. Part 1 is just the tip of the iceberg as there's much more Eric Carr and KISS talk to come in Part 2. We hope you enjoy Eric Carr Remembered with Gary Corbett Pt1 and SHARE with a friend!

Hoser Heavy Metal Vol. 5 with Löve RazërThis week on the Decibel Geek Podcast it's time for the yearly break for hosts Chris and Aaron. As the guys take the week off to enjoy their Thanksgiving football and turkey et al, The Canadian Hosers take over for their fifth time. Self-dubbed "The Hoser Heavy Metal Twins", mostly due to being born on the very same day....and mass beer consumption during the moniker choosing process....Wally "Wallygator" Norton and Rich "The Meister" Dillon are Decibel Geek's Original Hosers. In the past, the Canadians' yearly hosted podcast has included the introduction of a lot of Canadian music as well as special guests like Greg Fraser and Stevie Skreebs from Canadian band Brighton Rock.

This year we find the Hoser Metalheads at a pub in Etobicoke, Ontario (nearby their favorite rock club, The Rockpile) with the new band Löve Razër. This quartet of youthful Sunset Strip style rockers met with our Hosers a few hours before taking The Rockpile stage to open up for Tracii Guns back in October.

Löve Razër was introduced to Decibel Geek by a friend of Wally's and after hearing the EP Rock n' Roll Addiction, Wally felt compelled to write a review (EP Review). From there the floodgates of Decibel Geek love opened up for Löve Razër. Regular podcast hosts Chris and Aaron spun a track shortly after during a Fresh Blood themed episode (Fresh Blood Vol.4 Ep#239). Rich "The Meister" Dillon saw the band's first ever live show in Toronto (Live at the Linsmore). Laura Suchan reviewed her first Löve Razër performance as the band stormed Oshawa, Ontario (Live in Oshawa). Staff writer Blair DeAbreu covered a Löve Razër show in London, Ontario (Live at Eastsides). Star photographer Shawn "Animalize" Irwin has also been on hand to capture incredible stage moments for Löve Razër (Live at the Rockpile).

One of Decibel Geek's writers based in the UK has even reached out and requested a copy of the EP!

As you'll hear throughout this in-depth discussion, Löve Razër's members completely missed the Sunset Strip era averagely aged 20-21. Yet the band emulate the sounds and styles so well in the just over a year that they've been together. You'll hear about the plans for an upcoming full-length and touring hopes. Also discussed is the formation of Löve Razër, why and how they got into sleaze/glam rock, a special Decibel Geek connection, and some stories from the road. We hope you enjoy Hoser Heavy Metal Vol. 5 with Löve Razër and SHARE with a friend!

Very Solid Show!

Can't say enough great things about this podcast. I just recently discovered the Decibel Geek podcast and I'm having a blast going through the archived episodes. These guys show the love for all things rock and metal. I love the what if scenarios they talk about with Shoulda Been a Single being very entertaining. The Albums Unleashed episodes are great and it's awesome to get the scoop on awesome albums like Warrant's Dog Eat Dog, Kiss' Carnival of Souls, Alice Cooper's DaDa and Skid Row's Slave to the Grind. Good conversations on every episode...same kinda chats that my buddies and I have on Friday nights over some beers. It's also great to be turned on to stuff that I've never heard before...I'm always looking for something fresh to these ears. If you love rock and metal...download NOW!!

Geeks of the Week:

Chris and Aaron will read a double shot of "Geeks of the Week" on their next episode. The Canadian Hoseheads did not have the information at the time of recording, so feel free to overshare this one and make Chris' job extra hard next week :)

We will also be selecting, at random, 5 sharers of this episode to receive a free Löve Razër Rock n Roll Addiction EP. But...you must meet three requirements first: 1- share this episode (which you already do anyway). 2- "Like" the Löve Razër Facebook page (which you may already have done anyway). 3- Leave them a comment on the Löve Razër page letting them know that you heard the episode (easy to do)...... we'll have a member of the band randomly select 5 names and if you've completed this trilogy we'll mail you an EP!

Category:Podcast -- posted at: 5:47pm EST

The guys are joined this week by DBG VIP The Rockin' Donkey for a Y&T Discussion. Formed in 1973 in Oakland, California, Y&T were originally known as Yesterday and Today. After two good, but poorly received, albums for London Records the band, featuring singer/guitarist Dave Meneketti, guitarist Joey Alves, bassist Phil Kennemore, and drummer Leonard Haze, were signed to A&M Records. 1981's Earthshaker would kick off the newly re-branded Y&T and launch a trilogy of albums that formed the backbone of their concert set list and solidified their fan base. Rounding out that trilogy were 1982's Black Tiger and 1983's Mean Streak. While these albums had moderate success, the higher positions of the Billboard charts continued to elude Y&T. That theme would continue with 1984's In Rock We Trust but the tide would change with the release of the song Summertime Girls. Originally appearing as the lone studio track on the live Open Fire album, the song would get added to 1985's Down for the Count and give Y&T some serious commercial attention. That attention would be fleeting however as Summertime Girls remains their biggest hit single and Y&T was subsequently dropped from A&M Records.

Y&T Discussion decibel geek podcast episode 263


Y&T

 

1987 saw the band re-emerge on the rock-heavy Geffen label. Original drummer Leonard Haze was out and new drummer Jimmy Degrasso was in. Contagious had every ingredient from the keyboard to the hooks to the hairspray that should've assured bigger success. Unfortunately, the guiding hand of John Kalodner couldn't pull Y&T to the success of which he had with Aerosmith. After releasing 1990's Ten album (featuring new guitarist Stef Burns replacing Alves), Y&T took a long break as the new wave of Grunge music started to take over. 1995 saw the band return with Musically Incorrect; an album that had solid material yet certainly was not flavor-of-the-week fare. That trend would continue with 1997's aptly titled Endangered Species. Y&T would go on an extended hiatus as guitarist/singer Dave Meneketti focused on a solo career. The band would come back to rave reviews in 2010 with Facemelter (featuring new drummer Mike Vanderhule); an album that showed a serious return to form for the band. Tragically, this would be the final album for bassist Phil Kennemore who succumbed to cancer during the touring cycle for the album. Y&T would soldier on with replacement bassist Brad Lang before being replaced in 2016 by Aaron Leigh. The band had two more tragic losses in 2016 as original drummer Leonard Haze and longtime sound man Tom Size both passed away.

In this in-depth discussion your hosts and guest discuss the history of the band and go through each album in the studio discography. Favorite and least favorite tracks are discussed as well as album covers and lyrics. Underlining much of the conversation are theories of why this amazing band never achieved bigger success. It's a long, fun discussion about a band that continues to wow crowds 40 years after the release of their first album. We hope you enjoy Y&T Discussion - Ep263 and SHARE with a friend!

I just started listening a last week. I listened to "1974 in Review" and that was cool! I grew up a Kiss fan. I loved that so much Kiss came up and the Casablanca insight. Also, I really enjoyed the Ratt/Alexi show! I had forgotten how great Ratt was. I'll be looking for some of those songs you guys played. I will going back and listening to more past shows (more than likely all of the past shows) as well as looking forward to your new ones. Thanks guys!

Skid Row bassist Rachel Bolan and producer Michael Wagener join the guys this week for Albums Unleashed Skid Row. Recorded in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, Skid Row was released January 24, 1989 on Atlantic Records. Thanks to strong response to singles such as 'Youth Gone Wild,' '18 and Life,' 'Piece of Me,' and the ballad 'I Remember You,' Skid Row would go on to sell over 5 million copies. This self-titled debut featured the talents of bassist Bolan, drummer Rob Affuso, singer Sebastian Bach, and the twin-guitar assault of Scotti Hill and Dave "The Snake" Sabo. In this nearly two hour discussion, Bolan discusses the early days of Skid Row, including a period pre-Bach that featured vocalist Matt Fallon. Fallon would unfortunately go down in infamy as someone that lost out on stardom not once but twice as he was jettisoned from jobs with Anthrax and Skid Row. Bolan also shares the circumstances that led to Bach's hiring at the young age of 19. Michael Wagener shares his memories of how he was brought on board to produce the album by A&R man Jason Flom and Skid Row manager Doc McGhee.

Albums Unleashed Skid Row decibel geek podcast

Albums Unleashed Skid Row

Skid Row's beginnings were helped in part to Bon Jovi. Guitarist Sabo was childhood friends with Jon Bon Jovi  and the friends had agreed to help each other out if one "made it" before the other. But Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora were not going to lend a hand until Skid Row was ready. In this long-form discussion, Bolan shares stories of rounds of songwriting between he and Sabo being critiqued by the two Bon Jovi leaders and scrutinized until they deemed the band ready.

Recording the album in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, Skid Row and Wagener got down to business right away. In this discussion, Michael shares his memories of the production of 'Skid Row' and how the band, while certainly having a wild side, were all business when it came to their time in the studio. Rachel also remembers the hobbies that he took up to help pass the time in the Midwest during production.

Bolan and Wagener detail track by track the songwriting and production of each song on the album. It's an in-depth look behind the scenes of one of the biggest hard rock debut albums of all-time. We hope you enjoy Albums Unleashed Skid Row with Rachel Bolan and Michael Wagener and SHARE with a friend!

Soccer legend Alexi Lalas joins the guys this week for a RATT Discussion; breaking down all eight studio albums and discussing the history of the band. RATT was one of the most notable bands to emerge from the burgeoning Sunset Strip era of the early 1980's. From the self-titled EP that earned them a roster spot on Atlantic Records to the breakthrough success of Out of the Cellar, RATT let the world know early and often that they were a force to be reckoned with. Guitarists Robbin Crosby and Warren DeMartini formed a tandem that would write some of hard rock's most memorable riffs. Bobby Blotzer and Juan Croucier combined for a powerful rhythm section. And Stephen Pearcy topped things off with a sleazy look and vocal delivery that made RATT stand out from the pack.

RATT Discussion with Alexi Lalas decibel geek podcast

RATT Discussion with Alexi Lalas

In this nearly 2-hour music and discussion talk, Alexi Lalas explains how he first discovered RATT as a youngster in suburban Detroit. In addition to the muscial influence the band had on him, he shares stories of how the band's fashion sense rubbed off on him. It's no doubt a fact that RATT's influence would help inspire Alexi to have one of the most unique looks in the world of sports in the 1990's.

Your three hosts break down every album including the often-underrated Dancing Undercover as well as Detonator. They also discuss later albums including the 1999 self-titled album that sported a different sound than what most RATT fans were accustomed to. 2010 saw RATT return to form with Infestation; a solid slab of classic-sounding RATT material that the rock world took to immediately. In this long-form episode, Alexi shares his thoughts on these albums as well as the situation concerning Bobby Blotzer's new version of RATT, the legal wrangling that's been taking place over the last year, and the recent Monsters of Rock Cruise performance of the remaining members of RATT. It's a solid block of RATT and Roll. We hope you enjoy RATT Discussion with Alexi Lalas and SHARE with a friend!

Never seems to disappoint. Makes me look forward to every upcoming week to get the new episodes!! They constantly remind us that there are more to the bands we love beside "The Hits"! Rare Hair got down to the meat and potatoes of why we love the bands we do. The Hits brought us the band, Rare Hair showed is why they are still in our hearts. Keep the flag flying guys!!!

Keep the Decibels rising!
by Stepxen on Sep 15, 2016
RATING: ★★★★★
Decibel Geek was one of the first podcasts I started liste Rxning to and they have given me much to enjoy! Great interviews and Albums Unleashed on some of my favorites! Chris and Aaron have a good chemistry and while one loves Ugly Kid Joe way to much they both love KISS and that's fine by me!My absolute favorite episode is the episode on DaDa. Any show that does a full episode interviewing the GREAT Dick Wagner about the vastly underrated DaDa album has my glowing adoration. That album is so genius and overlooked and I am so glad that you guys interviewed him before he was gone about this gem!The John Corabi and Toby Wright (Carnival) interviews were great too, both albums are largely overlooked but the s/t Motley album is IMO their best and Carnival is easily in my top 3 KISS albums of all times, so to hear the behind the scenes stories was wonderful! Keep up the good work guys!

The math checks out!

in iTunes by pleeb from USA on August 12, 2016       

If you thought math in an audio podcast form sounds boring, check this podcast out. The Decimal Geeks turn math into a radio play with numbers. You are so absorbed by the comedy and soundscape that you subliminally learn all kinds of neat math tricks. Example: To quickly multiply by 5, dive the number in two and then multiply it by 10. The hosts Chris SynchMath and Aaron CosineMajor really make math fun… and ALMOST cool. All my friends at the University of Wisconsin—​Madison listen but show is great for students at any level. And give the show a try, even if you don’t think you like math. As they say at the end of each show: "The Hypotenuse has a square on, which is equal Pythagoras instructed, to the sum of the squares on the other two sides If a triangle is cleverly constructed.”

Formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, Metallica would eventually solidify their original lineup of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Dave Mustaine, and Cliff Burton. The band would then move north to the Bay Area, sign a recording contract with Megaforce Records, fire Dave Mustaine, hire Kirk Hammett and the rest is thrash history.

Singer Greg Mangus joins Chris and Aaron this week to discuss his "almost famous" career in music; one that includes numerous collaborations with notable musicians across multiple genres. Greg is well-known in Nashville music circles for a number of projects that include Thee Rock N Roll Residency, St. James Infirmary, Noise Pollution (AC/DC tribute), and Jimmy the Weed (Thin Lizzy tribute).

Greg Mangus

Greg Mangus

In this hour-plus talk, Greg shares some fantastic stories of his early days in the burgeoning Florida rock scene in the 1980's, a string of co-writes with R&B group Cameo, his move to New York city upon which he received a solo artist contract from Polygram Records (and the fallout that occurred thereafter), a left-turn away from rock with a boogie-swing band Set Em Up Joe, and ultimately the move to Nashville and a journey back into rock music. That journey would take him to Thee Rock N Roll Residency and, later, an onstage jam with Cheap Trick's Robin Zander and his endorsement of Greg to be the next singer for AC/DC. In this discussion, Greg shares his memory of what took place after that endorsement and how the door may not be closed on that situation. It's a fun talk filled with lots of great stories. We hope you enjoy Conversation with Greg Mangus and SHARE with a friend!

MAN/GUS - A Tribute to AC/DC - The Bon Scott Years (featuring Greg Mangus, Phillip Shouse, Jeremy Asbrock, and Christopher Williams) will be performing on August 25, 2016 at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville, TN. Click HERE for more info.

Producer and longtime friend of Ace Frehley, Crazy Joe Renda stops by to share Ace Stories about everyone's favorite spaceman. Joe first came to prominence in KISS fan circles with the novelty song, 'Eugene' released under the moniker of Crazy Joe & The Variable Speed Band. The song would go down in KISSTORY as Ace Frehley's first musical project outside of the band as he's a co-writer and co-producer of the song. Joe also founded and ran North Lake Sound studio in White Plains, NY along with fellow songwriter Chip Taylor (known for ' Wild Thing', 'Rock Soldiers' and 'Angel of the Morning'). Joe is also the producer for prank phone call legends The Jerky Boys.

Ace Stories with Crazy Joe Renda decibel geek podcast episode 249

Ace Stories with Crazy Joe Renda

In this long-form conversation, Joe shares some incredible stories of hanging out with Ace Frehley and being around the business of KISS. Stories of the interpersonal relationships between Ace and the other members of the band are shared including the dynamic between the "2 camps" of Simmons and Stanley vs Criss and Frehley. Also included are Joe's recollections of Ace's decision to quit KISS and how Gene Simmons pleaded with Joe to attempt to keep Ace on as a member of the band. Other stories involving a testy meeting between Peter Criss and Eric Carr, loads of stories of Ace truly being a rock  n' roll wild man and so much more including the story of how 'Eugene' was created and how it connects to KISS (not in the way you would expect). It's an hour-plus of jaw dropping stories about Jendell's favorite son. We hope you enjoy Ace Stories with Crazy Joe Renda and SHARE with a friend!

Great podcast

in iTunes by John 77 from USA on July 20, 2016        

I've been listening to the Decibel Geek podcast for the past few years. Chris and Aaron have done so many fantastic interviews with musicians that respect and admire. I am a big Kiss fan that especially enjoys the Kissmas in July episodes. The Decibel Geek is definitely one of my absolute favorite podcasts out of all of the podcasts that I listen to. Keep up the great work Chris and Aaron. John in Central California

Hard rock is my drug of choice and I ’m always searching for my next high. Thank God for the Decibel Geeks and their Fresh Blood episodes. They turned me on to the Biters recently. I downloaded some tunes and was instantly hooked. Then I checked to see if they were on tour and discovered they were coming to my area next week! I'll definitely be front row and adding a new tee shirt to my collection. I'€™ll tell them the Decibel Geek sent me. Thanks Aaron & Chris!

If you're ever in Nashville on a Tuesday night, you owe it to yourself to check out Thee Rock N Roll Residency. The venue is Harp & Fiddle.

In this 2 hour discussion, you'll hear the guys discuss the evolution of guitar duos starting from the early days of The Beatles and going through the 70's with such acts as AC/DC and Thin Lizzy and into the 80's and 90's with the rise of metal and bands like Judas Priest, Queensryche, and many, many more. Tons of music, tons of stories, and a great trip down memory lane. We hope you enjoy Guitar Duos with Thee Rock N Roll Residency and SHARE with a friend!

The guys return this week to celebrate the show's birthday with a 5 Year Retrospective. In this 2 hour plus look back at the shows history, Chris and Aaron share the stories of how the show started, how Aaron came on board, some of their favorite memories, some of their not so favorite memories, great interviews they did, interviews that were planned (and in some cases, recorded) and then lost due to technical issues.

In this long-form discussion of the show's history, you will hear audio clips from numerous episodes of the show to give your ears a true trip down memory lane. Part funny, part scary, and (hopefully) fully entertaining; we hope you enjoy 5 Year Retrospective and SHARE with a friend!
