My friend BJ Kramp does a great podcast called “Rock and/or Roll” one of my favorite podcasts. Always informative and ridiculously in-depth.
Episode 44 had Adny Shernoff, most famously of the Dictators. Listen then listen to the rest of the episodes. Great stuff.
Disclaimer I have appeared on a few episodes, you should check it out regardless.
…and it is rather average. Gone is the modern heavy rock spin on Van Halen and ZZ Top replaced with the tedium of Led Zeppelin. Sure they still have goofy song titles but the excitement and fun is lost with a mid-paced yawn inducing lack of hooks.
Here is a taste. Don’t worry the mastering doesn’t help it.
