    EP 488 - Hard Working Metal

    A lot of people suffer under the misconception that if you’re a “known” musician that you have it made.
    Our guests this week certainly turn that on it’s head as Dave Ellefson and Joel Hoekstra give a rundown of what they’ve been doing during these Covid quarantine times.
    These are certainly two guys that are doing anything but kicking back and doing nothing. Be sure to support them and grab a copy of Dave’s “No Cover” and Joels’s “Running Games”.

    And as always Focus On Metal…Everything Else is Insignificant.

Great Show & Ideas

Big fan of the show. If you could do a Strange Highways-type feature on other rock albums, that would be great. Thanks

Great show for intelligent rock chat

Listened to my first show this week.
Great show - the chat about non rock fans wearing t shirts and people having a few token rock CDs struck a chord.
Was weird hearing Richie from Ireland on a this station, didn't expect it but as a fellow Irish man I understood his references - especially the DLR gig years ago - I thought I was the only one at that show - so we must have been at the same shows back in the day.
Keep em coming!
