    #248 Marko DeSantis (Sugarcult/Bad Astronaut)

    It's been a while since I've had anyone this chatty on the show. Marko is one hell of a talker. He's got stories for days. He's also a complete music geek, and his knowledge of early Californian punk rock is second to none. There's all kinds of fun stuff in this episode - if you like NOFX, Lagwagon, No Use For A Name, and that whole Fat Wreck Chords scene, you'll going to love it! We also talk about Sugarcult and the twentieth anniversary of their debut album, Start Static. Enjoy the show!

It was a great chat - Jim is a lovely dude and a brilliant songwriter.

    #246 Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (Ozzy Osbourne/Zakk Sabbath/Mercenary Management)

    Welcome to the last Life In The Stocks episode of the 2021 with Rob "Blasko" Nicholson from Ozzy Osbourne's band & Zakk Sabbath. Blasko is also a music manager who looks after the likes of Clutch and Black Label Society,Ā and he's previously played in Prong, Danzig, and Rob Zombie's band. We had a great talk about passion, ambition, drive, tenacity, humility, positivity, and his time working in/on all the aforementioned bands and projects. I'm still in the process of moving house at the moment, and all of my equipment is in boxes, so I'm going to take the rest of this year off to unpack my life, enjoy Christmas, and prepare for 2022. Who knows what the hell is going to happen then?!? Thank you for your ongoing support with this podcast.

    #245 Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society/Ozzy Osbourne/Zakk Sabbath)

    My guest this week is the one and only Father Zakk Wylde from Ozzy Osbourne's band and the mighty Black Label Society. This was the first time we'd properly spoken since being on tour together in 2020, right before "you know what" hit, and it was so good to catch up!

    #244 Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper/Solo)

    This week, I'm joined by the absolute shredding guitar player, Nita Strauss. You might know Nita best as the guitarist in Alice Cooper's band, but she's also a ripping solo artist with one album already out (Controlled Chaos) and a second one on the way. As well as being an amazing musician, Nita is also a solid gold human being and we had a really great talk. Enjoy!

Fantastic, intimate tales of life in the industry

Matt manages to capture really intimate missives from some of the best in the business A smorgasbord of funny, touching and fascinating interviews. Also a real pleasure digging into the back catalogue.

Great show!

Life in the Stocks is one of those brilliant podcasts that really lets the guests tell their stories in a way that totally flows.

The interviews with the big names like Andy Cairns from Therapy? and Tom Morrello from Rage Against The Machine were what drew me in but Iā€™ve gone on to discover so many awesome bands, artists and authors I had never heard of but who told great stories and really got you wanting to hear more about them and their work thanks to this show.

Keep up the good work Matt and thanks for all the amazing interviews so far!
