Geoff Tate Recalls 'The Warning' Was A Disappointment to Queensryche

Artist: 

Jimmy Kay and Alan Dixon from Canada’s The Metal Voice (https://www.facebook.com/themetalvoice) recently spoke to Geoff Tate (Ex Queensryche) who's current musical project called Operation Mindcrime will be releasing a concept album called The Key on September 18, 2015 on Frontiers, the first of three album installments.

Tate spoke about, the concept behind The Key, as well as the recording highs and lows of Queensryche's critically acclaimed albums The Warning and Operation Mindcrime and the closing of the infamous Le Studio Morin Heights where Operation Mindcrime was inspired and recorded.

When asked about Operation Mindcrime’s new concept album The Key
"When you write a concept record it definitely gives you the opportunity to do some different things that you normal wouldn’t do with a record of standalone songs because you are telling a story. So stories aren’t static they are very dynamic, there is lots of different moods you can explore within any given story. I like variance and variety. I go into it with single purpose of writing an entertaining story that is interesting and the challenge of matching music to that story so the listeners are transported on a musical route."

When asked about being learning experiences in the early days in Queensryche from other bands such as Twisted Sister and Ronnie James Dio
"I wasn’t really aware of Twisted Sister at the time, so it was kind of an eye opening experience sharing the stage with these very tall New York guys who wore really elaborate makeup and hair, costumes and it was kind of an eye opening experience. They had a really cool presentation and I learned a lot from them as far as stage craft and just the way they handled themselves."
"And some people that you meet on the way are very open to sharing their philosophy and there mindset their way of doing things, Ronnie Dio for example is a guy that was very helpful in the beginning stages of the Queensryche career, giving us advice helping us out he was a very giving person."

When asked the bands mindset during the recording of Queensrcyhe first Full length album The Warning: "It was a real disappointment to everybody in the band at the time, cause of course it was taken out of our hands and mixed by somebody who didn’t care about it and and didn’t want the input of the band and it was quite a shocking experience."

When asked what Geoff Tate spoken word was in the middle of the song Roads to Madness off the Warning Album: "It’s kind of strange I wrote what I was saying on a scrap of paper in the studio and then walked away from the microphone and never picked up the paper again, so it’s lost."

On how the city Montreal, Canada inspired the story and characters of Operation Mindcrime
"Montreal Canada is a wonderful city very inspirational a lot of the Mindcrime story was written in Montreal. The story line came from my time I spent in Montreal. I used to go to this little club on St-Denis called Le Saint-Sulpice. At the time it was a dark dingy little place, the clientele was a mix of all these different kinds of people and that’s where I met some of the people that became characters in my story. And that’s where I used to spend all my time. Dr X character came from a guy that I met at Le Saint-Sulpice. Sister Mary was a composite of couple of different characters I met one was in Montreal the other was in Amsterdam."

When asked if the whole album The Key will be played during the tour: "I plan on playing the entire album and then probably book ending the new album with songs from my past."

http://thedoublestop.com/ep-72-chris-mclernon-cold-sweat-cold-gin-saigon-kick/

On Lynch's pitch to Oni Logan to join Lynch Mob (21:54) "At this point we're called Ferrari. He's standing there and he says 'Hey Oni! How'd you like to drive a Ferrari instead of just being one?' And I'm like - OK, that's pretty clever. Way to go"

On Oni quitting Cold Sweat on the day they were to sign a record deal (24:00) "Everything I had worked for was on a stack of paper, right in front of me with a pen. And I'm just thinking to myself, you're kidding me."

On Cold Sweat getting dropped after their first album (with new singer Roy Cathey) "Wendy (Dio - Manager) calls us up one day and says I've got good news and bad news. The good news is MTV added the video to heavy rotation today. The band news is MCA has dropped the band."

One On One With Mitch Lafon - BOB KULICK

Artist: 
 
http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-141-bob-kulick-kiss-ali

In episode 141 of One On One With Mitch Lafon, guitarist and producer, Bob Kulick, sits down with Mitch to discuss his new book, upcoming EP, working as a ghost musician on KISS' Alive II & Killers albums, the making of the Paul Stanley 1978 solo album, touring with Alice Cooper, the 1989 Paul Stanley solo tour, Balance, Meat Loaf, Motorhead, his brother Bruce Kulick and much much more.

Drummer Allan Schwartzberg co-hosts this episode. Allan is best known to KISS fans for having 'ghost' drummed on KISS' The Elder, Animalize and Asylum albums as well as credited performances on the Gene Simmons and Peter Criss solo albums of 1978. He's also appeared, both credited and uncredited, on multiple Alice Cooper albums.

Quote from the interview:

KISS ALIVE II: "Paul called me and said Ace was dragging."

Feedback from the band on guitar playing during the recording of Alive II: "It doesn't sound like Ace enough. Try to keep it in the ball park."

"I had my own band, Balance. I played with Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Meatloaf, and all these people. I'm just on this train going through all of these artists."

I'd agreed to play on Gene and Paul's [1978 solo albums], but it became an issue. To have the same lead player on two of the records just defeated the purpose of everybody doing a different thing."

Bruce Kulick on joining KISS: "This was his fate."

Quote: On having to audition for Mick Jagger after already working with him on She's The Boss (and leading to a 27 year working relationship: "I walk out of the rehearsal room and ran right into Mick. I looked at him. He looked at me. And I said 'Hey Mick - how you doin'?' And he kinda looked at me and just kept walking. I went back into my room and I said 'I just ran into Jagger in the hallway and he acted like he didn't know who I was!' So 5 minutes later some girl walks into our rehearsal room and asks if there is a Bernard Fowler here. She said Mick Jagger was gonna do a solo tour and he was looking for a male vocalist, and we'd like to know if you'd like to audition. And I was highly insulted. She left the room and I said 'I'm not fuckin' auditioning. I've already worked with him. Why do I need to audition?' At that point Carmine Rojas grabbed me by the arm and took me to the corner and said to me 'whether you take this gig or not, go do the audition anyway!'

Jimmy Page Shares Triumph & Tragedy Of Final Years Of LED ZEPPELIN

Artist: 

Dallas, TX - July 29, 2015. North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  concludes its conversations with Led Zeppelin founder, guitarist, producer and songwriter Jimmy Page with a revealing look at the final years of Led Zeppelin.
 
For over a decade Led Zeppelin soared above the Rock'n'Roll world, setting course with their groundbreaking 1969 debut, then trailblazing through the Seventies selling millions of albums and concert tickets. But it was this very demand for more' larger crowds, longer tours' which would vie for focus from these four still rather young men trying, in some cases, to start a family or deal with fame and fortune. Factor into this heady brew the fate of the unknown and unforeseen, and you get legendary creative highs and the most tragic losses and lows.  That's what you have with what turned out to be the final Led Zeppelin studio albums Presence in 1976, the timeless In Through The Out Door in 1979, and the post-original collection of rarities called Coda.

InTheStudio host Redbeard speaks at length to band founder/ guitarist/ producer Jimmy Page about his comprehensive overhaul of the Led Zeppelin catalog which now has given fans the most authoritative look at the band's illustrious career.  In Through The Out Door is played every day on US radio, but as the studio album which preceded drummer John Bonham's death, Jimmy Page assures us that it was never meant to be Led Zeppelin's last.

'Of course it wasn't. There'd have been another album after that. I know John Bonham and I had discussed that. And if you want to have an idea about what way that would go, well then just listen to 'Bonzo's Montreux' and see where he's given a good hand to be able to do drum orchestra and really enjoy himself. He used to like to get into things where he could really get in and groove... We probably would have gone in that direction, but it's hard to tell '.'  - Jimmy Page

LED ZEPPELIN Jimmy Page/ InTheStudio interview program is available now to STREAM at: http://www.inthestudio.net/redbeards-blog/led-zeppelin-presence-doorcoda-deluxe-jimmy-page/

Angus Young, Brian Johnson Recall AC/DC's Resurrection 'Back In Black'

Artist: 

Dallas, TX - July 21, 2015.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands celebrates the 35th anniversary of the second biggest-selling album in the world, AC/DC's Back In Black.

After four U.S. albums, AC/DC had finally gained a foothold in America with the breakout album Highway to Hell. But just when success was within their grasp, lead singer and co-writer Bon Scott died after a hard night of drinking. For most bands, losing a singer and frontman is a fatal blow, but not for AC/DC.

Following Bon's funeral in Australia, Malcolm and Angus Young returned to the UK to work through their grief the only way they knew how, writing music. Angus Young tells InTheStudio host Redbeard just how serious the band took their situation.

'We sat down and we said, 'This has got to be good. It HAS to be good'... If it had been the last thing we had done as a band, it had to be something.'  - Angus Young

Something, it was. At the time no one, not even the band could have imagined the heights to which AC/DC Back In Black would climb, going on to sell over 48 million records worldwide, the Mt. Everest of Rock (second only to Michael Jackson's Thriller ). Back in Black   became an album full of Rock and Roll anthems like 'Hells Bells', 'You Shook Me All Night Long', 'What Do You Do For Money Honey', 'Shoot To Thrill', 'Have A Drink On Me', 'Rock'N'Roll Ain't Noise Pollution', and of course the title cut 'Back In Black'.

InTheStudio host Redbeard speaks candidly with Angus Young and Brian Johnson about the Back In Black period, including the death of Bon Scott, the hiring of Brian Johnson, the adventures of recording in the Bahamas, to their first gig ever with Brian in Belgium. 

The AC/DC story would not be complete without a tribute to band patriarch Malcolm Young, who is on medical leave but continues to inspire.

'He's a sort of heart and soul behind the band. He lives and breathes it, and he's so important to all of us as a father figure. I can't say too much about the guy.'   - Brian Johnson

Double Stop Podcast - JENNIFER BATTEN


Jennifer Batten discusses her early days and learning guitar, her audition for Michael Jackson, her work on the Bad, Dangerous and HIStory tours, her account of Greg Howe filling in for her for a few weeks with Michael Jackson (his account is in episode 36), her work with Jeff Beck, her three solo records and her new multimedia tour - Jennifer Batten's Self-Empowerment for the Modern Musician Experience.
 
 
On Michael Jackson vs Jeff Beck "For (Michael) Jackson it's the awareness of entertaining the audience. Far beyond the music. Which is why I think I ended up doing a solo multimedia tour, and learning how to edit films. And with Jeff (Beck) it's creativity, and always searching for new things. With Beck, he's always expanding, and you wouldn't believe the stuff he listens to. And he just absorbs it all."

7-26 FLAGSTAFF
7-29 LUBBOCK TX

INTERVIEWS WITH KK DOWNING (EX-JUDAS PRIEST), HOUSE OF LORDS, SPACEY T (SOUND BARRIER, PRAISE THE DEAD),  SYMPHONY X AND DEATH ANGEL ON RICH DAVENPORT'S ROCK SHOW

Rich Davenport's Rock Show this week features interviews with Judas Priest legend KK Downing, James Christian (House of Lords), Tracey 'Spacey T' Singleton (Praise The Dead, ex Sound Barrier, Fishbone), Symphony X's Michael Romeo and Ted Aguilar from Death Angel, and is now available for streaming at this link:

https://www.mixcloud.com/richdav1/rich-davenports-rock-show-kk-downing-house-of-lords-spacey-t-symphony-xdeath-angel-interviews/

In the first hour, legendary former Judas Priest guitarist KK Downing drops in to discuss his new range of fragrances for Rockers, Metal for Men and Metal for Women. KK also talks about some of the reasons he chose to leave Priest, and looks at the way in which the classic Priest axe team he formed with Glenn Tipton worked to stay on the cutting edge of lead guitar playing. KK also chooses two of his favourite Priest classics.

Also in part 1, House of Lords vocalist James Christian looks at the band's stellar new album 'Indestructible', their tenth to date, released as the current line up celebrates its tenth anniversary. You'll also hear two new tracks chosen by James.

The second hour kicks off with a chat with renowned guitar hero Tracey 'Spacey T' Singleton, formerly of Sound Barrier, Fishbone, and Mother's Finest, and now playing 8-string guitar with Praise The Dead, a power duo whose sound is simultaneously melodic and crushingly heavy. The band has just released 'The Heavy', the first of 3 EPs, and Tracey gives the low down on this exciting new project. Tracey also pays tribute to Phil Lynott, revealing that Sound Barrier approached the Lizzy legend's management to ask him to produce an album for them. You'll also hear Sound Barrier's cover of Thin Lizzy's 'Hollywood (Down On Your Luck)', and Tracey's choice of another Lizzy gem.

Rounding off the show are interviews with Michael Romeo, guitarist with Prog Metal masters Symphony X, who looks at their forthcoming new album 'Underworld', and Ted Aguilar, rhythm guitarist with classic Thrashers Death Angel. Ted discusses their new CD/DVD package which features a live album, 'The Bay Calls For Blood', and 'Thrashumentary', a career-spanning retrospective documentary.

The show closes with two tracks from Bob Seger's latest album 'Ride Out'.

The GuitarCast - TOM KEIFER

Artist: 
Guitarist and singer Tom Keifer of Cinderella fame sat down with Shawn and Corbs from The GuitCast to talk about his latest album; The Way Life Goes.  In this, all cards on the table interview, we get an all access, backstage pass to Tom's writing process, country influences, experience with producers and session musicians, personal views on Spotify, and his vintage gear arsenal.

Tom Keifer speaks openly with The GuitCast about 'The Way Life Goes'.  When asked about the writing process, his reply spoke volumes; “I always try to draw on new inspirations and those things can come to you at anytime.  Usually it’s when you are not trying, a lot of times it’s when you are traveling.  Long drives can spark ideas, a lot of times on planes; for some reason that feeling of movement can open up a hypnotic state and you start to get ideas.  That’s usually how a song starts for me.”  Tom goes on to speak about his filtration process and how he doesn’t really even start to take notes or work on an idea until it has stuck with him for a time.  “If that initial spark or idea goes away then I just figure it wasn’t interesting or memorable”. 

The no rush, let it happen, spirit proves to be a winning formula for a successful album.  Even if it was 10 years in the making, the best things in life are well worth the wait.  Be sure to check out the whole interview on The GuitCast to get the full scoop on this great record, a bit of Tom’s gear, and more things Tom Keifer.
