    Jeff Pilson makes his fourth appearance on Focus on Metal this week.
    This time he came by to discuss the new Revolution Saints release “Against The Wind” but as per usual Richie
    took the opportunity to discuss a ton of other musical endeavors that Jeff is currently juggling.
    So if you want to know at least seventy percent of what Jeff is currently doing have a listen to this weeks show.

    EP 586 - A Hair Journey

    Metal Mike host of the 80’s Glam Metalcast joins us this week to discuss, of all things, 90’s hair metal.
    Yep, you read that right. Mike recently published “A Hair Metal Journey” which takes you through hair metal from 86 to 91.
    The book is both Mike's journey and the story of the artists.
    So based on that Richie decided to press further into the 90’s with Mike. Cuz why not.

    EP 585 - Playing Favorites

    Few things stir up more of a crap show online than when someone attempts to discuss their favorite albums (or anything) of the year on social media.
    You aren’t declaring the best album it’s your favorite. It’s a choice that’s as unique to your personal taste as your favorite ice cream.
    This week we talk about some of our “gasp” favorites from last year and also a bit about this whole opinion culture on social media.

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

    EP 584 - Diamond Dave

    This week we welcome author and podcast host Darren Paltrowitz to the show. Darren just published “DLR Book- How David Lee Roth Changed The World”.
    An excellent book and hopefully you’ll want to grab a copy after hearing our lengthy chat.
    Before that Richie and Scott have a bit of a chat on the recently departed Tony Clark and James Kottak.
    For many long time listeners you know how much involvement James has had with FoM over the years so this one really hit home.

    EP 583 - Conspicuous (un)Consumption II

    EP 583 - Conspicuous (un)Consumption II

    This week we wrap up the long discussion from last week on how music is consumed today versus how it was consumed back in the heyday of physical media.
    FoM firmly believes that the current state of consumption and distribution (while being far broader)is actually severely detrimental to the overall health
    of music including the inevitable degradation of the next big scene or next arena rock act. We think these two episodes make a case for our thoughts.

    EP 582 - Conspicuous (un)Consumption

    2024 is upon us and so is the first episode of FoM for the year.
    This week J and Scott have a long discussion on how music is consumed today versus how it was consumed back in the heyday of physical.
    Why?
    FoM firmly believes that the current state of consumption and distribution while being far broader is actually severely detrimental to the overall health of music including the inevitable degradation of the next big scene or next arena rock act.
    It's long discussion with lotsa rabbit holes in the tradition of the Focus on Classic Metal shows so it may not be everyones cup o tea but we hope it sparks some thoughts.

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

Great guests One of my favorite

One of my favorite podcasts and I listen to and subscribe to many.
This podcast and the Rock and Roll Geek Show are the two best out there.

Just a great show

The show is always great, Richie and Scott are top notch, very few shows can touch them.

The love for old and new music shines through.

Focus on Metal is my favorite music podcast. I love the in depth coverage of old and new bands, including producers, engineers, and anyone related you happen to unearth. I will admit that I jump all over your interviews with artists I grew up with, but I'm following a lot of new bands I found through your podcast, and I've noticed they make their way into my morning commute more and more. Thanks for your hard and excellent work.
