It’s another double dose, or maybe triple does, here on the Talkin’ Rock podcast with Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons.
First, I speak with “Van Halen Rising ” author, Greg Renoff, about my last interview with David Lee Roth. That podcast stirred up lots of news when Dave made the statement that Van Halen is finished. Greg comments on that, Eddie Van Halen’s health, his upcoming book about producer Ted Templeman and more on VH.
Jeff Gutt and Eric Kretz of STP are up first. We talk about Jeff Playing in his hometown and his guest list. “Core” turned 27 years old this past weekend as Eric relives a few memories of it. One of the things I really wanted to know about was the new album, that’s done and coming out next year. They both talk about it and how this album is different than other STP albums. You’ll have to listen to hear what they say about it. Eric relays a hysterical Scott Weiland story, things they do on tour, where Eric has is awards displayed and more.
Jay Buchanan from Rival Sons was nice enough to take some time out to speak with me. We talk about the bands constant touring and the rise in their popularity, his move to Tennessee, touring with legendary bands, Detroit music heavy-weights, what RS have going on in the future and more.
Al Beck is back with Rock News. Gene Simmons’ health issue, a classic MTV unplugged be re-released and the NHL teaming up with a rock band.
