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)!

by Buy YES Music on Dec 15, 2016
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!

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.
