    The Best & Worst of Guns N Roses with Craig Gass

    The Best & Worst of Guns N Roses with Craig Gass

    We're back with a great talk with a great guest as comedian Craig Gass joins us for The Best & Worst of Guns N Roses!
    Formed on the Sunset Strip in 1985, Guns N Roses quickly ascended to the top of the rock world with their debut album 'Appetite for Destruction.' Along with the success would come controversy as the band truly lived the rock star lifestyle. The combustible mix of attitude, agression, talent, and addiction made the band stand out from their peers. Even their stripped down look would signal to the music scene that times were changing. The band would go on to release the massive 'Use Your Illusion' parts 1 and 2 and graduate to stadium tours. But, just as quickly as they rose, the band started to fall apart. Members leaving one by one would cause a long dormant period for the band while singer Axl Rose labored over his opus 'Chinese Democracy.' By the time the album finally was released, it did more to confuse fans than excite them. Guns N Roses have found new success in recent years with the return of guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan.
    In this discussion, we pick our favorite and least favorite track from each album. Additionally, we share our stories of how the band first came on our radar as well as our memories of each album. Craig Gass brings some great stories to the table as he's had multiple interactions with the band members going back to nearly the beginning. It's a fun talk about a very intriguing band.
    We hope you enjoy The Best & Worst with Guns N Roses with Craig Gass and SHARE with a friend!
    You can also meet us and Craig Gass at ROCKNPOD Weekend coming up in Nashville March 17-19! Get your tickets at www.rocknpod.com

    The Best & Worst of Metallica Part 2 (1996-Today) - Ep510

    The Best & Worst of Metallica Part 2 (1996-Today) - Ep510

    We're back for the second half of our 2 part series on the Best & Worst of Metallica! This time, we're joined by our friend and fellow podcaster Joshua Toomey to cover the latter half of the kings of thrash career as we focus on 1996 through today.
    Riding high on the success of The Black Album, Metallica returned in 1996 with Load and Reload a year later. The band had a new look and a new, stripped down sound. While the changes didn't necessarily resonate with their hardcore fans, it opened the band to a new audience and success continued. They would continue to change with the release of St. Anger before returning to an earlier sound with Death Magnetic. However, they'd take a huge left turn courtesy of the collaboration with Lou Reed in Lulu. Righting the ship, they'd release Hardwired...to Self Destruct to the joy of their fan base. In 2022, they'd give fans a glimpse of the future with the release of the single 'Lux Aeterna.' This release would coincide with the announcement of their next album '72 Seasons' as well as a huge tour with Pantera to come in 2023 and 2024.
    In this discussion, the guys pick their favorite and least favorite tune off each album, give their thoughts on the ever-changing sound of the band during these years and state their hopes for the next album. Additionally, they discuss singles, EP releases, and cover songs released during this period.
    We hope you enjoy The Best & Worst of Metallica Part 2 (1996-Today) and SHARE with a friend!

REALLY good!

i heard 2 episodes today that talked about two of my favorite albums with two people from a band i absolutely LOVE - Tesla.

so then i’ve been binging on more the rest of today and likely on thru the night.

if you like rock music and talking about rock music you’ll fit in… and this will fit in you. it’s a group thing… don’t get caught up in the logic.
