With over two decades of experience under his belt, Dez Fafara is one of the most notable and raw frontmen you can ever see live. We got the chance to catch up with the DevilDriver vocalist as he spoke about some of the younger bands that interest him as well as what first caught his attention when he began listening to music. He also gives some very informative advice to his younger self that maybe helpful to those newer bands out there.
On April 10, KISS were inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during a ceremony at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, and a lot has been written about the event. But we had the privilege of having founding KISS guitarist Ace Frehley drop by our studio the very next day to set the record straight as to what really went down at the ceremony. Check out the interview in the video above.
Anthrax bassist Frank Bello is our latest guest for 'Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?' In what turned into one of our best Wikipedia segments to date, Bello sets the record straight about his beginnings with Anthrax, the band's first European tour being interrupted by the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown, being pressured to change Anthrax's name, mourning the death of 'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott + more.
In Part 1 of our interview with Living Colour, the band spoke all about their experience on ShipRocked 2014 as well as the making of their classic album ‘Vivid,’ which recently celebrated it’s 25th Anniversary. They also talked about their musical roots in New York City and much more. In Part 2 (which you can watch above), the members discuss specific tracks on ‘Vivid’ at length and explain that each of the songs have a different story and personal meaning behind them.
It’s no secret that In This Moment’s latest album, ‘Blood,’ has had massive success, and the reception to both the album and the live performances have made the band one of the most unique and interesting rock acts today. The music and production definitely won over ShipRockers as the band performed on the Norwegian Pearl for ShipRocked 2014 earlier this year. While on the cruise we spoke to guitarist Chris Howorth and in Part 1 of our interview he talked about memorable fan moments, the growth of the band and much more.
