In the episode's first interview WHITESNAKE guitarist REB BEACH discusses the band's current Greatest Hits tour, making The Purple album, getting the Whitesnake gig, his time with ALICE COOPER, WINGER, DOKKEN and making the Erase The Slate album. Plus, much much more.

Quotes from the REB BEACH interview:

New solo album (time 2.03): "I've been working on my solo album that is instrumental forever and I'm like sick of it already, but it's really really good. It's done, but I just need the drummer to come play on it."

Getting into Whitesnake (time 4.31): "I wanted the gig badly and called everyone I knew and said, 'Do you know someone in the Whitesnake camp.?'"

The Whitesnake Greatest Hits tour (time 10.22): "People want to hear familiar songs. When you start playing an unfamiliar song, be it a new song or a really old song (that they don't know), a lot of people just start texting or the take a bathroom break."

Dokken's Erase The Slate (time 21.04): "They were going to release a Beatles' album basically and I'm like, 'No, you're DOKKEN. I love Dokken. It's got to be ROKKEN WITH DOKKEN."

In this episode's second interview director Christian Lamb discusses the making of the Mötley Crüe final concert film The End.

The Interview starts at the XX.XX minute mark.

Quotes from the CHRISTIAN LAMB interview:

The interviews interspersed in The End movie (39.26): "There's this finality to it and we absolutely had to get into that story. Those points all had to be made. We had to hear the guys. We had to hear their perspectives and what was going on in their heads approaching this. In the end, it was always going to be more of a narrative."

TESLA drummer TROY LUCKETTA joins Mitch for episode 230 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

LINK TO THE INTERVIEW: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-230-tesla-troy-lucketta

In the show's only interview, drummer Troy Lucketta discusses the band's current tour with Def Leppard & REO Speedwagon, the upcoming 30th anniversary Mechanical Resonance LIVE album, working with Def Leppard's Phil Collen on new music, Whitford/St.Holmes, Keith Emerson and so much more.

Quotes from the interview:

Joining Tesla (time 2.30): "Back in 1985, when I hooked up with the band and I heard Jeff's voice. I always knew there was something really special about the band."

The upcoming MECHANICAL RESONANCE Live album (time 6.02): "We knew our anniversary was coming up. Phil Collen of Def Leppard really spearheaded this thing. So, what we did... We would open the show with a couple Mechanical Resonance songs, change it every night and we did that over a couple of weeks and we managed to get the record. Phil Collen wrote a song called 'Goodness' (it's a beautiful awesome song). It's a bonus track for the record."

Are you locked in to the 'Tesla sound' (time 13.13)...

Def Leppard (22.11): "The band all of us (speaking for all of us not just myself) we all love that band and respect that band so much. We've been blessed over thirty years to do different things and dates... We spent fifteen months on Hysteria. Every time we've crossed paths, it's always felt like family."

Keith Emerson (27.47)...
