Jackyl’s Jesse James Dupree “Never Gets Old” On Talkin’ Rock Download

28:11 Download October 3rd, 2023

It’s always great to talk with my friend, Jesse James Dupree from Jackyl. He’s got a new album coming out on November 10th called, “Breathing Fire”. He told me about the idea of the record, which was born out of good old fashioned Rock N’ Roll. 

Brian Johnson from AC/DC helped to write some of the material. He said Brian called him out of the blue, while Jesse was contemplating and putting thoughts together for new music. “Next thing I know, I’m writing songs with Brian Johnson of AC/DC.” Jesse talked about the entire process of how the songs came together with his son, Nigel and Jackyl bassist, Roman Glick. He talked how the cadence of the latest single “Never Gets Old”  had a Marine cadence to it. That’s out now and you can see the video here, which is the lyric video with 32 different fonts from some of your favorite bands. You can win cash and more if you can name all the bands. Punch up Jesse’s site to find out how to win. 

We also talked about working with his son, Nigel. He tells a funny story about how it’s different to get into an argument with a band member as opposed to your son. LOL

I also asked him about the use of “The Lumberjack” in the Foo Fighter’s Studio 666 movie. It’s one of the most brutal death scenes I’ve ever seen in a horror movie. He went on to tell me a story about Nirvana almost getting kicked out of a Jackyl show in Seattle back in the day. 

As some of you may or may not know, Jesse works heavily with Harley-Davidson. We talked about that as well.
