We're doing the KISS thing again this week with special guest Andrew Sgambati for The Quarantine Sessions Vol9! Andrew recently released his new KISS fan film One Last Time Live from New York City The Movie!
 
This part documentary / part concert film is an inside journey into the KISS End of the Road tour. While the movie is focused on the current tour, it's so much more. The movie also touches on Andrew's personal KISStory; going back to the beginning of his fandom in 1988. You can watch the movie for FREE on youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hDIvQSYrwY
 
As per usual with The Quarantine Sessions, we're taking YOUR questions. This week, all the questions are KISS-related. You guys submitted a ton of great questions and we got to as many as time would allow.  With so much KISS to focus on, we had to forgo Beat the Geek this week but it WILL return next week.

We're living in a strange time but that's not stopping us from getting on microphones and being ridiculous and we do just that with The Quarantine Sessions Vol1! We are having to practice social distancing but thanks to the magic of Skype, we're getting together virtually and answering your pre-submitted questions. The topics bounce around wildly in this episode and you'll get music related questions as well as some real life stories from the our childhoods.

The Quarantine Sessions vol1

Additionally, we take some live phone calls for the first time. As you can figure, it's a comedy of errors. We're still figuring this technology out but had fun talking to a few of you and plan to do more of it going forward.

We get into some cool behind-the-scenes KISStory this week with our Conversation with Vincent DiGerlando! Vincent worked for Howard Marks Advertising for 14 year and, by proxy, KISS. Meeting the band in 1974, he would go on to design the iconic KISS Army logo! Additionally, Vincent had a major hand in several landmark KISS albums and products including the album covers for Double Platinum, the 78 solo albums, Unmasked, and Creatures of the Night.

In this conversation, Vincent shares many interesting stories of working with the KISS team behind the scenes, the differences in design and printing compared to today, as well as his thoughts in hindsight of working with such a legendary band.

We're back this week to focus on all the news in the rock and metal world with New Noize 9! There's a lot of bleak news outside of the music world these days so we hope to provide a brief escape from it all in this episode.

Starting things off, we give our in-depth review of the latest Ozzy Osbourne offering 'Ordinary Man'. Did we love it? Did we hate it? Do we disagree with each other? You'll have to listen to find out.

Additionally, we discuss some of the latest developments between the Donnie Vie and Enuff Z'nuff camps. A lot has been put forth publicly by the former singer of our favorite pop rock band and we have our thoughts on the whol situation.

Other topics discussed include Twisted Sister becoming licensing kings, updates on the Mick Mars solo album, Riot's singer trying out on The Voice (yes, we're serious), and a Nu-Metal tour that nobody asked for.

Finally, we dig into some recent comments from Robb Flynn of Machine Head that didn't sit too well with Aaron Camaro. You'll hear Robb's comments and Aaron's response in this episode.

We hope this break from our bleak reality helps you get through your week. Keep on rockin'! (and wash your freakin' hands!)

We're blessed to be joined by Tommy Skeoch this week as he reflects on the Tesla classic 'Psychotic Supper.' Coming on the heels of the successful 'Five Man Acoustical Jam' album, Tesla hit the studio in New York playing with house money. The recent success afforded them free reign to create an album devoid of record company pressure. The band went to work with producers Steve Thompson and Michael Barbiero. The resulting album is a sonic platter of greatness. Psychotic Supper sounds as fresh today as it did in 1991.

Boasting five successful singles including What You Give, Edison's Medicine, Song and Emotion, and Call It What You Want, Psychotic Supper achieved platinum status.  In this long-form discussion, Tommy Skeoch shares his memories of the making of this great album. Track by track, story by story; you'll get it all.

We also get the inside track on Tommy's new band Resist and Bite. Putting the finishing touches on material, the band will soon be shopping for a label. In the meantime, we're giving you a sneak peak with podcast world premier of the song The Myth I'm Livin.'

Don't miss seeing Tommy Skeoch at ROCKNPOD Weekend taking place August 14-16 in Nashville, TN! Get your tickets NOW at www.rocknpod.com!

In a completely new experimental series we read and react to a Hit Parader magazine from back in the day with Rock Mag '83! Reaction videos seem to be a big trend these days but, in this case, we're reacting to the printed word. The Rock Mag series has us flipping through the pages of an old school rock magazine and reacting to it. Did these articles age well? Do we agree with the takes given? Are these letters to the editor actually legit? We go through it all, crack wise, and share our opinions of their opinions!

Rock Mag '83

Topics from this issue of Hit Parader from 1983 include Eddie Van Halen, KISS, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Charles Atlas, Button Making, B-Movies, Fake Letters, Ridiculous Rush Takes, and much more!

We explain the situation and what changes are going to take place from this recent development. Hear us out and give us your feedback as we really look to the listeners for the next steps!

This week Toby Wright joins us for an in-depth discussion on the making of the Alice in Chains classic 'Jar of Flies.'

Released on January 25, 1994, through Columbia Records, it is the first EP in music history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with the first week sales exceeding 141,000 copies in the United States. Recorded over the course of a week at the London Bridge Studio in Seattle, it was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 1995; Best Recording Package and Best Hard Rock Performance for "I Stay Away". It has been certified triple-platinum by the RIAA, selling 4 million copies worldwide.

Alice in Chains Jar of Flies

Jar of Flies

In this long-form talk, Toby recounts his memories of getting the phone call from Jerry Cantrell to book studio time once the band got off tour. Assuring Toby that plenty of material was ready to go, Cantrell revealed later that no material had been written as of day 1 of recording. What happened next can only be described as catching lightning in a bottle (or a jar). Wright and the members of the band hunkered down for 14+ hour days and churned out 7 amazing songs in 7 days. With a 10 day window for mixing, Jar of Flies took form from conception to finished product in just 20 days.

Additionally, Toby shares his memories of the creation of the songs as well as production techniques used for creating the timeless sound of Jar of Flies.

Also, Toby and his partner Jay give the details of their company, Taummhoms. Taummhoms is a subscription based sleep sound streaming service that can be accessed from any internet connected device. It features unique, on- demand, HIGH DEFINITION sounds that can help you in promoting sleep and revitalization. The options once in the FREE TRIAL section allow you to customize your desired length of time you are wishing to sleep in 30 minute increments.

We return this week to discuss all the latest happenings in the rock world with New Noize 8! The past couple weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions for many rock fans. We start things off on a somber note with a discussion on the recent passing of drum god Neil Peart.

David Lee Roth recently made news with a sad note about Eddie Van Halen as well as a controversial opening to his Las Vegas residency. We give our feelings on both of these stories and you might not like what we have to say. You've been warned.

Ozzy recently released another song from his upcoming album Ordinary Man. This time he's joined by Elton John for the title track. What did we think of this tune? Listen and find out.

Additionally, we cover stories involving Dee Snider, Glen Danzig, KK Downing, and Robin McAuley.

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.

[caption id="attachment_53302" align="alignright" width="350"]

Top 5 80's Aerosmith

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!

It stands to reason that many of us come into our "most rocking" phase of life around the age of 16. That would include our favorite rock stars. So, with that in mind, we take a spin through the Billboard charts to see what was possibly influencing some of our favorite rockers; or repelling them.
 
We touch on members of KISS, Metallica, and many other American rock bands as well as Alice Cooper, Paul Gilbert, Blackie Lawless, and a ton more!
 
We wrap things up with a look at what was on the charts when Chris & Aaron turned 16.
 
Be sure to leave what was on the charts when YOU were 16 on the Decibel Geek facebook page in the comments section for this post!
 
We hope you enjoy 16 in America and SHARE with a friend!

Bassist Anthony Esposito joins us this week for an enlightening conversation on his work with three guitar gods. Anthony's musical history makes for a great conversation and, while talking to us, he didn't hold back.
 
In this episode, Anthony discusses the formation and beginnings of Lynch Mob. Founded by original Dokken guitarist George Lynch, the band wowed music fans with 1990's Wicked Sensation album. The partnership of Anthony, Lynch, drummer Mick Brown and singer Oni Logan resulted in a gem of an album from a very transitional time in music. Anthony talks about his audition for the band, his current thoughts on George, and the odds of a Wicked Sensation lineup reunion in 2020.
 
Another guitar great that Anthony worked with is Ace Frehley. When Ace was putting together his comeback album 'Anomaly,' he enlisted Anthony to help with song ideas and production. His role grew from there. You won't believe what happened during the recording of this album as well as the reasons for losing his position in the band. It's a 'what could have been' story to the nth degree.
Most recently, Anthony was brought on as bassist for Jake E. Lee's Red Dragon Cartel. His solid pocket during the tour for the first album helped hold things together and was a welcome addition on last year's 'Patina' album. In this episode Anthony touches on road stories from the RDC tour, recording conditions for the latest album, working with Jake and Max Norman, as well as the odds of Red Dragon Cartel continuing.
 
We want to thank Anthony Esposito for a fun, candid discussion this week. We hope he'll join us again.

Andrew Sgambati joins us this week to discuss his creation of The Greatest Show on Earth and we watch it!
 
In last 50 years, there hasn’t been a more visually exciting band than KISS. Blasting on to the scene in the early 1970’s KISS’ mix of rock, pop and cartoon theatrics made them a household name. By 1977, the people has spoken. KISS was the most popular band in America according to a then recent Gallup Poll.
 
Led Zeppelin had one. The Who had theirs in 1979. Alice Cooper, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones all had In Concert films that graced the silver screen...but not KISS.
 
The Greatest Show on Earth takes you back to 1977 and answers the question, what would a 1970’s KISS film look like?
 
In this episode we watch The Greatest Show on Earth and provide our live commentary. You can check out the movie yourself and watch along with us on Vimeo!
 
Once we finish the watch-along, Andrew joins us to talk about the basis for creating the movie, the revisions/additions that were made for the Encore edition as well as his plans for another KISS-based movie.
 
Stream The Greatest Show on Earth on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/359413106
 
Watch-Along starts at 07:09:00

We return this week with one of the most "inside" KISS-related shows we've ever done as we have a Conversation with a KISS Meme. To explain, in 2010 teenager Rich Cser was basking in the discovery of rock and metal music. For fun, he filmed himself singing and doing air guitar to some of his favorite songs and uploaded the videos to Youtube. Of these videos, his choice of KISS' Ready My Body from 1989's 'Hot in the Shade' album was a strange one. Furthermore, his animated air guitar performance, complete with tongue wagging and throwing "the horns" got the attention of the KISS Army. Soon, the video would be the topic of much discussion on many KISS groups and message boards. Not all of the response was positive. Ultimately, it was a conversation starter regardless of good or bad reaction.

KISS Meme

After 2010, the video of Cser asking if the letters are big enough kind of fell by the wayside; until this year. Popular Youtube host Ralph Viera (aka Dr. Fukk) resurrected the video on his channel for a bit of playful satire, explaining that his girlfriend had left him for Cser before throwing to the original video.

Not one to stand idly by, Decibel Geek host Aaron Camaro got to work and actually found Rich Cser on social media. Once explaining to him that his video had gotten quite a reaction, he surprisingly agreed to appear on Decibel Geek. Today we give you Conversation with a KISS Meme. Thanks to Rich Cser for the cool talk and to Ralph Viera for reminding us of the badassery that is the Ready My Body video.

WARNING, please have your girlfriends or wives leave the room before playing this episode. Unless you want them to leave you.

We return this week for a peach of a discussion about The Heavier Side of the Black Crowes! We've never really delved deeply into this Georgia-born group led by the brothers Robinson. For this episode we turn to an expert as David Hudson from the State of Amorica podcast joins in to school us on Crowes history. Additionally, your hosts and guest spin some of their favorite 'heavier' songs by the band.

With the ROCKNPOD Expo around the corner, we're back this week to kick back and talk about some current rock and metal happenings with New Noize 5!

There's some strange doings in the world of Rock and Metal and we're tackling a few of them this week. In this relaxed discussion we share our thoughts on a guy butt-smuggling a cell phone in jail, the untimely passing of a Sunset Strip legend, an iconic Heavy Metal guitarist that's beating the odds while churning out killer riffs, a reunion that probably never-will-be, and a concert ticketing scandal that'll have you yelling, "Kill Em All!"

New Noize 5

We touch on those subjects and a few others in New Noize 5!

We return this week with an in-depth discussion on the written word of the Hottest Band in the Land as we discuss KISS Lyrics. While they will never be viewed by the elite on a par with wordsmiths such as Dylan or Springsteen, there's plenty to talk about when it comes to the lyrical catalog of KISS.

KISS Lyrics

With so many lyrics to possibly go through, we're making this volume 1 and capping the discussion at 1977. We hope you enjoy KISS Lyrics Best and Worst and SHARE with a friend!

We're late starting KISSmas in July but it's finally here with The Best and Worst of KISS! In this episode we go through the KISS discograph and make our selections for best and worst song. Some albums were quite a challenge and there's some definite disagreement between us.

The Best and Worst of KISS

We also get a phone call from Kruisefest organizer Joe D'Angelo who gives us some details on this amazing event coming up in Miami this October. Find out more about Kruisefest at www.kruisefest.com

KIX guitarist Brian "Damage" Forsythe joins us this week to break down the making of KIX's Midnite Dynamite album! Released in 1985, this album sees the band going in a heavier direction while also embracing pop elements and production of the day via producer Beau Hill.

In this long form discussion Brian shares his memories of the status of the band at the time. After putting out two major label releases, the average music fan would think the band was riding high; in this episode you'll release it was much more of a struggle. Brian's openness in this conversation is both informative and refreshing.

Midnite Dynamite

Midnite Dynamite spans 10 tracks. In this episode, Brian recalls his memories of the recording of these songs including details on gear that was used as well as some uncomfortable moments that led to this album's creation.

We appreciate Brian "Damage" Forsythe for joining us for this in-depth conversation about the making of a KIX classic!

Meet Brian at the upcoming Nashville Rocknpod Expo taking place Saturday August 10th at Nashville Airport Marriott. Get your tickets at www.nashvillerocknpodexpo.com/ticketing

We dive deep into a murky period for one of rock's great as we discuss the Alice Cooper Blackout Era! The substance abuse was at its absolute peak in the early 80's for our favorite shock-rocker. Many years of drinking followed by a craving for cocaine had started to destroy Alice from the inside out. Starting in 1980 with the Flush the Fashion era, Alice Cooper abandoned his classic eye makeup for a psychotic Mommie-Dearest image. Combined with his gaunt frame, it still registers as once of his most frightening looks.

Aside from the substances, the early 80's were a strangely creative time for Alice. The albums produced during this period yielded some brilliant, yet uneven, moments. Starting with 1980's Flush the Fashion, Alice takes a swing at disco and new wave with certain tracks. 1981's Special Forces is filled with an authoritarian concept while still providing a wink and a nod to androgyny. The cocaine abuse hits mass effect on 1982's Zipper Catches Skin and the songs bear that out despite some great moments. 1983's DaDa rounds out the Blackout Era in grand fashion with an album made purely from the heart. With Warner Brothers all but guaranteeing no promotional push, Cooper reunites with Dick Wagner and producer Bob Ezrin for an album that still sounds otherworldly today.

In this episode we share our thoughts on this 4 album run and spin our favorite tracks from each. We hope you enjoy Alice Cooper Blackout Era - Ep365 and SHARE with a friend!

We're back to talk your ear off about all the doings in the world of Rock n Roll with New Noize 4! We begin this week's festivities with an extended discussion on Vinnie Vincent. This not only involves yet another promised event for fans of the ankh warrior but in how it related to the upcoming Nashville ROCKNPOD Expo. In this diatribe that we were sent, it includes an asinine claim by the former KISS guitarist about our expo. We take the time to read this statement and give our response as well as the truth behind the situation since you aren't getting it from him.

New Noize 4

As with all New Noize episodes, we touch on our thoughts on current rock news of the day. This week we're covering the possibility of a new Tool album, new material from Guns n' Roses, Tommy Thayer throwing shade at Ace Frehley, and Courtney Love making news for anything but her music. All that and much more in New Noize 4!

This week we focus on the Prince of Darkness as we celebrate our Top 5 Ozzy Osbourne Songs 1980-1986! One year after being fired from Black Sabbath in 1979, Ozzy came back with a vengeance with Blizzard of Ozz. The combination of Osbourne's lyrics and the guitar gymnastics of Randy Rhodes took the rock world by storm. Additionally, bassist Bob Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake rounded out an incredible sonic assault that would rattle the early 80's.

Top 5 Ozzy

 

Not only known for great songs, Ozzy's reputation grew by leaps and bounds in the 1980's. The "Satanic Panic" movement was in full swing and Ozzy was at the top of the list. His crazed antics freaked parents out and, in turn, spawned even crazier rumors about the former Sabbath front man. We touch on our memories of Ozzy during this time as well as our first experiences buying his music.

Following Blizzard Ozzy releases three other great albums during this period. Diary of a Madman continued the momentum before tragedy struck with the untimely death of Rhodes in a plane crash. Enlisting former Mickey Ratt guitarist Jake E. Lee, Osbourne soldiered on with stellar material on Bark at the Moon and The Ultimate Sin.

This week we celebrate one of America's greatest bands as we pick our Top 5 Ramones Songs 1976-1980! Born in Queens, NY, Ramones were a powder keg of chemistry as Johnny, Dee Dee, Joey, and Tommy (and later, Marky) lit a match that ignited an entire movement. The simple, edgy arrangements of throwback pop put through a buzzsaw turned up to 11 inspired an entire generation to start their own bands and, in turn, kick off the punk rock wave that would take the world by storm.

Ramones

As you'll hear in the episode, Aaron and Chris' favorite tracks vary wildly. We hope you enjoy Top 5 Ramones Songs 1976-1980 and SHARE with a friend!

We give a little Irish to you this week with our Thin Lizzy Discussion! Greg Troyan of the band Lipstick and podcast The Lipstick Panel joins us to cover the Thin Lizzy discography. Join us as we take you through each album, giving detailed stories about the production and songwriting. Additionally, we provide our thoughts on each album, picking our favorite songs.

The Thin Lizzy history starts in 1971. Distributed by Decca Records and featuring the trio of Phil Lynott, Eric Bell, and Brian Downey, the first two albums, Thin Lizzy and Shades of a Blue Orphanage (1972), show a band struggling to find it's signature sound. However, there are several solid tracks on the first two albums. The original lineup ends its run on a high note with 1973's Vagabonds of the Western World.

The classic Thin Lizzy lineup gets its start with 1974's Nightlife album. While new guitarists Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson display a bit of their future firepower on tracks like Sha La La and It's Only Money, the album is markedly mellow with such laid-back tracks as the title track, She Knows, and Frankie Carroll.

1975's Fighting album would see Thin Lizzy hone their sound into a tight, melodic hard rock. Tracks such as Fighting My Way Back, Suicide, and Freedom Song would show more edge while not losing melody. The ballad Wild One and moody Spirit Slips Away make Fighting a great album from front to back.

Thin Lizzy would burst onto the world stage in 1976 with the release of Jailbreak. The title track and breakthrough single The Boys Are Back in Town propels the band to a much larger audience. Additionally, this strong effort is rounded out with such musical gems as Romeo and the Lonely Girl and Emerald.

Thin Lizzy

1976 would see two releases from the band. Johnny the Fox, while not as successful as the previous album, boasts an impressive track list. Songs like Don't Believe a Word, Massacre, Old Flame, and Borderline would continue to show the diversity of song-craft from this band.

Furthermore, Thin Lizzy would continue to impress in 1977 with the release of Bad Reputation. While marred with personnel issues during production, the album still delivers. Brian Robertson is in and out of the band during the making of this release, leaving Scott Gorham to handle the bulk of the guitar playing. Nevertheless, Bad Reputation is loaded with fantastic songs such as the title-track, Opium Trail, and the heartfelt Southbound.

Thin Lizzy would document their awe-inspiring live sets with 1978's Live and Dangerous. Produced by Tony Visconti, the album would becomes a musical gateway drug for many aspiring rock musicians. Named by many as the greatest live rock album ever created, it is a blistering live document.

Thin Lizzy

Gary Moore, who had subbed previously over time for Brian Robertson, becomes a full member of Thin Lizzy in time for the next album. Black Rose: A Rock Legend is touted by many fans as the band's finest work. Songs such as Do Anything You Want to Do, Waiting for an Alibi, and Sarah do a great job of showing up the band's sense of melody and technical proficiency.

Gary Moore's tenure doesn't last long and guitarist Snowy White is brought in for 1980's Chinatown album. Considered by some as a letdown in comparison to Black Rose, it still boasts some impressive songs such as the anthemic We Will Be Strong, Sweetheart, and Killer On the Loose.

1981's Renegade album is a divisive one among Thin Lizzy fans. The choices of keyboardist Darren Wharton and noted heavy metal producer Chris Tsangarides leaves some fans wondering if Thin Lizzy is abandoning their sound. While different, Renegade still has plenty of strong material including Leave This Town, No One Told Him, and the incredibly dark Angel of Death.

Thin Lizzy releases their final album in 1983. Thunder and Lightning is a strong way to go out. Featuring the playing of John Sykes and, again, produced by Chris Tsangarides, the album is a ferocious final sonic document of a band that should have ruled the world. Songs like the title track, Cold Sweat, and The Holy War close out the Thin Lizzy canon with a bang.

With so much happening in the KISS world, we thought we'd return with a KISS Edition of New Noize! In this hour-plus talk, we get down to our thoughts on the nuts and bolts of the KISS world in 2019; and boy is it active!

KISS kicked off the beginning of their End of the Road tour in Vancouver this week. Specifically, the stage is massive and is getting lots of attention. Additionally, the specter of backing tracks being piped through the sound system is being discussed. Is the new KISS show live or is it Memorex? We'll dissect and give our thoughts.

Also of note, on the eve of the new KISS tour, Ace Frehley took aim at his former band mates; blasting Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley with some serious allegations. Have Paul and Gene cost Ace millions of dollars due to badmouthing him? Did Gene really make a pass at Ace's girlfriend? Consequently, did Ace even actually write the salvo that was launched via his social media? We'll examine and give you our take.

New Noize

 

Finally, the Vinnie Vincent saga takes yet another major twist. After lots of silence from Vinnie, the promoter, as well as Rocketown, the two shows scheduled in Nashville for February 8th and 9th have been cancelled by the promoter. According to him, Vinnie backed out of the shows. Subsequently, Vinnie (and his attorney) released statements essentially saying he backed out of the shows due to non-payment. Either way, the remaining fans of Mr. Vincent are, once again, left disappointed. Does this pay out in court? Will the ticket buyers get their refunds? Will there be another concert scheduled and who would trust that the show will happen? We give our take on this circus.

As a result of all of this, there's no shortage of drama within the KISS Kamp. There's been speculation that the band would eventually launch a reality show. This begs the question, are we living through it right now?

We hope you enjoy New Noize KISS Edition and SHARE with a friend!

This week Tesla's Troy Luccketta joins us to discuss the making of Mechanical Resonance. Released in December of 1986, Mechanical Resonance introduced this Sacramento-based 5 piece to the world. Produced by the duo of Steve Thompson and Michael Barbiero, the album peaked at 32 on the Billboard charts. Additionally, it provided Tesla with some bonafide material that still gets played live today including Modern Day Cowboy, Cumin' Atcha Live, and Little Suzi.

Mechanical Resonance

In this long-form discussion, Troy shares the origin story of Tesla. Details covered include the name change from City Kidd, marathon writing sessions, who's responsible for the name Tesla, and much more! As always, we also go track by track with Troy to get recollections of the making of each song.

2019 is shaping up to be a big year for Tesla. While Troy provides lots of great stories of the making of Mechanical Resonance, he also fills us in on the current state of the band. The new album, Shock, is slated for release in March of 2019. Consequently, the band is set to hit the road extensively. One of those dates is February 19th, in Nashville at the legendary Ryman Auditorium. To see such a great band in a venue with acoustics such as this is something you won't forget. So, if you are anywhere Nashville on February 19th, join Chris and Aaron for a killer night of live music with Tesla!

We close out the year in excellent fashion with DIO-CEMBER VOL2! We left off last week with Ronnie James Dio fronting Black Sabbath. Inasmuch as the chemistry was palatable, Ronnie needs and change and things pick up in 1983. The Holy Diver album is an absolute powerhouse because of its lineup. Guitarist Vivian Campbell, bassist Jimmy Bain, and drummer Vinny Appice were the perfect arsenal to back Ronnie up. Accordingly, the results are made clear in the material they released. To follow up Holy Diver with such strong albums as Last in Line and Sacred Heart speaks to the power of this lineup.

dio-cember vol2 decibel geek podcast

DIO-CEMBER VOL2

DIO-CEMBER VOL2 explores the many changes that took place in Ronnie's career. While the original lineup gets plenty of love in this episode, we also aim to show you that fantastic material was released well after they ceased to be a unit. Consequently, you'll get tracks from DIO albums including Dream Evil, Lock Up the Wolves, Strange Highways, Magica, Killing the Dragon, and Master of the Moon. Additionally, Aaron spins a great track from the Heaven and Hell lineup.

Ronnie James Dio may no longer be with us but he leaves a musical legacy that endures. Indeed, his incomparable voice raised the bar for such legends as Richie Blackmore and Tony Iommi. Additionally, the impressive material that he put out through the DIO is an undeniable template to the greatness of Heavy Metal. We hope you've enjoyed DIO-CEMBER.

DIO-CEMBER VOL2 is the end of our two-part tribute to the great Ronnie James Dio. However, there's always next year!

We celebrate the holidays this week by releasing volume 1 of a 2 part special on a legend; DIO-CEMBER Vol1 is here! In this special, we pay tribute to the late, great Ronnie James Dio. This week's entry has us focusing on Ronnie's first decade in the rock world 1972-1981.

Ronald Padavona was born in New Hampshire in 1942. His family would soon move to New York where he would be raised around music. Beginning at the age of 5, Ronnie was a born-performer. Stints playing trumpet and bass would lead the way to Ronnie fronting bands. After changing his name to Dio around 1960, his first real step in the world of rock would be taken in 1972. ELF's self-titled debut album features Ronnie and childhood friends performing while Deep Purple legends Roger Glover and Ian Paice produced. This would lead to extended touring opening for Purple and, eventually, the formation of Richie Blackmore's Rainbow.

decibel geek podcast dio-cember volume 1

DIO-CEMBER Vol1

Rainbow's history is well-covered but, in short, the Dio-led version of the band is legendary in its output. Richie Blackmore's Rainbow, Rising, and Long Live Rock & Roll are testaments to the powerful partnership between the singer and guitarist.

Unfortunately, the clash of egos would lead to Ronnie leaving Rainbow. On the other hand, rock history was waiting to be changed as Dio would then team up with Black Sabbath who had recently parted ways with Ozzy Osbourne. The newfound chemistry between Dio and guitarist Tony Iommi was undeniable. As a result, Black Sabbath would release two landmark albums with Ronnie; Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules. Despite the incredible material, it would be a short-lived union. But, that's for us to discuss on volume 2.

We hope you enjoy DIO-CEMBER Vol 1 - Ep345 and SHARE with a friend!

We're back this week to tackle the who, what, when, where and why of the second half of our 1981 Year in Review Part 2!

July of 1981 is a strong month for the rock genre. Strong efforts include releases by Foreigner, Def Leppard, and the Ramones. Additionally, some great under the radar albums by Demon and New England help bolster and already solid month.

The month of August is a busy one in news and pop culture. The launch of MTV on August 1st is a landmark moment that's about to turn the music world on its head. Also taking place in August of 1981, John Lennon assassin Mark David Chapman is sentenced. Furthermore, a fantastic musical release by Brad Whitford and Derek St. Holmes is getting attention.

1981 year in review part 2

1981 Year in Review Part 2

September of 1981 is filled with great rock music as well as a shocking personnel change. The month is marked with solid outings by Triumph, Grand Funk Railroad, Michael Schenker Group, KIX, and Alice Cooper. Additionally, Iron Maiden do the unthinkable and switch lead singers right as the band is beginning its ascent.

The music news for October of 1981 includes a young Prince being boo'd off the stage while opening for the Rolling Stones. Also, music piracy is on the radar as the "Home Taping is Killing Music" campaign is launched. Music releases for October include new solo material from Ozzy Osbourne as well as a big release from his previous band, Black Sabbath. Notably, KISS venture into uncharted waters with a new look and a strange concept album.

Hollywood death gripped the United States in November of 1981. Famed actress Natalie Wood tragically drowns while on a boat ride with two other notable thespians. Mystery continues to surround the case. Also of note, porn star John Holmes is arrested, and later acquitted, in the Laurel Canyon "Wonderland" murders. Additionally, November of 1981 is highlighted by big releases from Motley Crue and AC/DC.

All of this is covered this week as well as classic commercials in our 1981 Year in Review Part 2! We hope you enjoy and SHARE with a friend!

Filmmaker Andrew Sgambati is with us this week to talk about The Greatest Show on Earth as well as to pick our Top 5 KISS Songs 1974-1977! While there's a ton of controversy surrounding the Hottest Band in the Land in 2018 we're happy to have Andrew on to discuss a time when all was right in the world. The mid-1970's were a magical time for KISS. The strength of their six studio albums and two live albums propelled the band into the heights of pop culture consciousness in 1977. Inspired by such a special era for the band, Andrew channeled that inspiration into making The Greatest Show on Earth; a concert film/documentary sourced from video from live 1977 concerts and audio from Alive II.

Promoter Joe D'Angelo joins us for Vinnie Vincent Special vol6; our thoughts on Miami, Memphis, and more. We said we'd never do another one of these but with recent events taking place, we had to chime in. In this latest volume, Joe tells us about his experience booking and working with Vinnie Vincent. Vinnie appeared in Miami for The Gathering KISS Kruise Preparty. He appeared for two meet and greet days as well as a performance with Four by Fate onstage for a few songs. Joe gives us the details on what it's like working with Vinnie, how he was to the fans, as well as his thoughts on the onstage performance. We also give our thoughts on Vinnie's performance of Lick It Up, I Love It Loud, and Cold Gin.

[caption id="attachment_47584" align="alignright" width="350"]Vinnie Vincent Special vol6

Moving on from Miami, Joe stays with us to discuss our thoughts (at that time) about the upcoming 2 night stand at Graceland in Memphis. We delve into what are expectations would be for the fans that are traveling to Tennessee, how ticket sales seemed to be going and speculation on what would go down.

A few days after recording with Joe, a Vinnie Vincent bombshell was dropped. The Memphis shows have been postponed (just weeks away from their confirmed dates) and the show is being moved to Nashville in February. While refunds and exchanges seem to be available to ticket buyers, it became apparent quickly that a number of Vinnie Vincent fans were going to be mightily inconvenienced due to this short notice schedule/city change. We give our unfiltered thoughts on this whole mess and state what we think is going to happen (or not happen) in Nashville in February of 2019.

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.

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'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!

Podchaser Review:

5 Stars

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

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

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

Top 5 Pantera Songs

 

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

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

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.

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

top 5 wasp songs decibel geek podcast

WASP

 

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

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

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

Also don't miss your chance to enter for a chance to win the KISSTORY GUITAR RAFFLE!

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.

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

 

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

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

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

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

Bulletboys 1988

 

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

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