#79: All The Aces (Another Conversation With Keith Bennett)

• April 27th, 2021

On episode 79 I talk to my friend Keith Bennett (Boston's Wrecking Crew, Panzerbastard) for the third time. Keith gives me a deep and personal insight into his last year which began extremely dark as he talked about on Episode 57 to the present sober Keith. This was one of the most candid conversations I've had on this podcast and I'm glad Keith wanted to share his story of sobriety. The honesty and happiness in his voice even when talking about some intense and dark times makes this one of my favorite episodes I've done.

Episode 77 is a conversation with Brian Gathy. Brian hosts the excellent podcast End on End which is covering the entire Dischord Records catalog by release.

#76: Somewhere In Time (A Conversation With Steve Brooks)

• March 23rd, 2021

Episode 76 is a conversation with Steve Brooks, Steve is best known as the guitar player and singer of bands Torche and Floor. I've been a big fan of both of these bands who play some of the heaviest and catchiest music around. We get into where that inspiration came from to create the music in those bands, starting like a number of my guests, with Kiss, and we end up in the present where Steve gives me an update on what Torche has been up to so far in 2021 (hint: new music has been recorded) Steve was a great guest, as one of my favorite musicians working today I appreciate him taking the time to chat.

#75: Remember Tomorrow (Another Conversation With Bob Mayo)

• March 16th, 2021

Episode 75 is another conversation with Bob Mayo of the Boston area metal band Wargasm. This episode almost serves as a prequel to the first one we did (Episode 27) where we mostly talked about the history of Wargasm. Here we talk about the music that Bob grew up with starting around 1978 with Sabbath and Kiss, hitting the NWOBHM in 1980 and going up to around when thrash metal hit. Bob is a great storyteller and loves talking about music, I'm glad we were able to talk again and plan to do some more episodes in the future.

• February 23rd, 2021

Episode 72 is a conversation with Enoch Thompson who you may know as Skeeter Thompson. Enoch has played bass for the band Scream for over 40 years now. Rather than start at the beginning of time like I normally do we start in 1981 and talk about his time in Scream from their first tour with Government Issue to trips to Europe, recording various records and more recent shows all the while forming a family like bond with his bandmates that still exists today. Enoch also talks about a number of current projects as well. Music is in his DNA and his bands music has been a big part of mine so it was great to talk to him here.
