One On One With Mitch Lafon - EPICA

Artist: 

Vocalist SIMONE SIMONS from EPICA guests on Ep. 259 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

LINK TO INTERVIEW: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-259-simone-simons-epica

In the show's only interview, vocalist SIMONE SIMONS OF EPICA discusses the band's new album The Holographic Principle, motherhood, her fashion & style blog, Nightwish's Oceanborn, movie work, Disney and much more.

Quotes from the interview:

The mindset going into the recording of The Holographic Principle (Time 1.14): "To, at least, have the same level of quality that we had with the Quantum Enigma."

(Time 1.58): "The writing process happened all over the world not only at our home studios, but also in the airplanes and back lounges of the tour bus."

Translating the music to the live stage (time 5.21): "We know that it's impossible for us to take the orchestras and choir with us - so there's anyways always backtracks so there you have limitless options."

Voicing movies (time 12.39): "I would love to actually be a guest vocalist in a Disney movie or an epic blockbuster... Disney movies - when I was little I loved Ariel, Aladdin, Beauty & The Beast and stuff like that. I think my voice would be suited for that really well."

One On One With Mitch Lafon - JEFF PILSON (Dokken)

Artist: 
 
FOREIGNER and returning to DOKKEN bassist JEFF PILSON guests on Ep. 257 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

LINK TO INTERVIEW: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-257-jeff-pilson-dokken

In the show's only interview, Foreigner bassist Jeff Pilson talks about his upcoming return to Dokken, the possibilities for a new album, on 'doing it for the money' and much more.

Quotes from the interview:

For the money criticism (time 1.44): "This is entertainment. This is art. I think people and even artists themselves don't want to think that they do it just for the money. We have a fairly privileged life doing this and to think that we do it just for the money kind of brings up a bad picture in your mind."

(time 2.18): "I think that's how Mick was honestly feeling like the only reason he wanted to do it was for the money, but I've spoken with him since and now he's excited and gets the musical possibilities."

(Time 2.30): "We have a chance to go out and prove ourselves again as a band. I do love music and I do love Dokken even though we were a troubled band in so many ways."

The old wounds (time 5.58): "The truth is - in putting this thing together there were some old wounds that opened up. I think that's bound to happen. We're all pretty passionate dudes. We're all pretty sensitive dudes, but it gave us the opportunity to clear the air a little bit."

Is it really the end? (time 10.54): "Don says it is so I've got to take him at his word. For me, I would keep it as an open door."

One on One with Mitch Lafon - JEFF PILSON

Artist: 
 
 
FOREIGNER's JEFF PILSON joins Mitch on episode 197 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.
 
In the episode's only interview, bassist Jeff Pilson discusses Foreigner's latest release In Concert: Unplugged (available only on Amazon for the benefit of Juvenile Diabetes), working on the Last In Line album (featuring Jimmy Bain, Vivian Campbell and Vinny Appice), working on the Mortal Kombat movie, his friendship with Steven Adler and his potential return to Guns N' Roses and the upcoming classic era DOKKEN reunion.

Quotes from the Jeff Pilson interview:

New album: "It may be acoustic, but it still rocks."

Dokken Reunion: "We've all come to a place where we are very appreciative of the legacy Dokken has. When we finally do something, we are going to try and do it right, but we are going to try and do something. Hopefully, I'll have something to report sometime soon."

Steven Adler & Guns N' Roses: "I'm a huge GUNS N' ROSES fan. I happen to think Matt Sorum is an amazing drummer, but chemistry is something you cannot argue with."

"There is something about the chemistry of Steven with those guys that made a sound that I think is the sound that we all know as that classic amazing Guns N' Roses sound. As great as the band could be in later days, I just never think it had that same desperate energy again. So, do I think he should get the call? Of course, I do. I honestly believe that those guys know that. They feel that deep down."

"I think he's ready and I hope to God he gets the phone call because if he does the world is going to get lit on fire again."

Last In Line: "I'm so insanely proud of that rock. It really feels like a little piece of history and I couldn't be more hounored (than) to be a part of it."

Will you tour with Last in Line: "I would step in in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, Foreigner already has dates."
