    #318 Sami Yaffa (Hanoi Rocks/New York Dolls/Solo)

    From one bad ass bass player (Duff McKagan) to another, my guest on Life In The Stocks this week is Sami Yaffa from Hanoi Rocks and the New York Dolls. Sami has led an incredibly rich and interesting life, and it's all documented in his amazing autobiography, The Road Bends. He's also got a couple of great solo albums out, and we talk all about the book, the solo records and his time in Hanoi Rocks. Plus a whole lot more.

    #317 Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses/Velvet Revolver/Solo)

    Today is my birthday, and what better way to celebrate than by welcoming one of my all-time favourite rock stars and humans onto the show.
    Duff McKagan from Guns N' Roses & Velvet Revolver joins me this week for Episode 317 of Life In The Stocks to talk all about his storied life and career, leading up to the release of his new solo album Lighthouse, which is out now.
    This is absolutely one of my favourite episodes to date. I always love talking to Duff and this interview is, I think, the best one we've ever done. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    #316 Dallas Frasca (Solo Artist)

    My guest this week is one of my favourite people on the planet, Australian singer, songwriter & musician, Dallas Frasca. And we have an honest and vulnerable discussion about creative and personal development. It's a conversation all about evolution and growth and finding your purpose and fulfilling your potential. Dallas is a brilliant woman and a truly amazing musical artist. This is actually one of my favourite ever episodes. It’s a beautiful reminder of how lucky I am to get to do what I do, and all the friendships and connections that I've made through music and doing this podcast. Be sure to ride this one out until the end. Big rewards will be waiting for you there. And there’s a couple of live tracks in the mix, too. Enjoy!!

    Another Aussie podcast for you this week, as I'm joined by none other than Alan Fletcher, aka Dr. Karl Kennedy from Neighbours, the longest running and most beloved TV show in the history of Australian television. Once again, it's a bloody great chat with a bloody great bloke. You can also catch Alan on tour throughout the UK this July.

    #314 Ross Knight (Cosmic Psychos)

    I've got a great guest for you this week: Ross Knight from Cosmic Psychos. If you haven't seen the Psychos documentary Blokes You Can Trust, you need to check it out. It will tell you everything you need to know about this iconic Australian band. Ross is a bloody great bloke as well. I think you'll really get a kick out of this conversation. I know I did.

Matt & Chas

Always great to hear Chas talk Lightyear, solo and potential film but this one goes deep and is all the more beautiful for it.

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.

Avoid

One of the worst podcasts I have ever listened to. Utterly clueless host who is so ego driven it’s embarrassing. Avoid at all costs
