Johnny Christ from Avenged Sevenfold shares cocktails and conversation with guests.

    Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit

    Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit

    This week we take a step into the warped and twisted mind of legendary guitarist Wes Borland! We talk all things Limp Bizkit - the beginnings in Jacksonville with Three Dollar Bill, Y'all, the MTV Spring Break performances, Woodstock ’99, the Australia incident, Wes’ time away from the band, the upcoming tour dates, and an update on the elusive Stampede of the Disco Elephants record.
    We also take a deep dive into all of Wes’ side projects. Get the full story behind the creation of GOATSLAYER, how much music they really have recorded, why you’ll probably never hear some of it, and how that project eventually evolved into Big Dumb Face. Wes also opens up about how his ego led him to create Eat The Day, and why even a producer from Pink Floyd’s The Wall couldn’t get that project off of the ground (hint: it has something to do with trying out over 150 singers…)
    Plus find out about the ghost in Wes’ old house, why he didn’t feel like a part of the metal community, debunking the “shade” against Avenged Sevenfold & the Deathbat comic, what the hell a white trash mimosa is, the inspiration behind Wes’ stage personas & outfits, how the Space Zebra show came to be, a great (or not-so-great) Courtney Love story, the worst guitar tech ever, plus so much more you’ll need a nice warm glass of hot dog flavored water to wash this episode down!

    Louis Prima Jr.

    Louis Prima Jr.

    It’s all about dads this week as we celebrate Father’s Day with the generational jazz legend himself, Louis Prima Jr! We get an inside look on what it was like to grow up with the late Louis Prima, and how it has influenced LPJ’s career.
    Louis details how his disdain for the music industry led him to a career in hospitality management, and how he ultimately rekindled his love for performing. We also get an update on the latest album and tour for Louis Prima Jr. & The Witnesses.
    We also indulge in some stories about meeting the Rat Pack, touring the Capitol Records recording studio Louis Prima recorded in, how LPJ was able to pull off a duet with his father, how the cover art for Blow came together, and so much more!

    Zane Lamprey

    Zane Lamprey

    This week I’m by the Indiana Jones of alcohol consumption, Zane Lamprey. We talk beer, beer, and more beer as Zane prepares to embark on his 90-stop cross country Laughs & Drafts Comedy Tour.
    A little known fact, Zane used to host a travel show that actually inspired Drinks With Johnny. We get into Zane’s time hosting & producing Three Sheets, and how his experiences inspired material for his comedy tours. 
    We also get into one of the coolest things Zane has created, The Adv3nture Hoodie. This was the most-funded fashion project on Kickstarter, and features a BEER POCKET. Find out more about Adv3nture, an insight into Zane’s Drinking Made Easy, and even a fun bit about breaking a world record with Bert Kreischer on this week’s episode!

Michelle and Val

I just listened to this episode and it was awesome! The bond you share is incredible. You all were blessed to have Jimmy in your lives and thanks for sharing some stories and history. Cheers

Decent

Decent show, however, Johnny is getting too “woke” for me. I wonder if he regrets getting a “vaccine” yet. Between his believing in the Covid hoax and the bands support of BLM, very disappointing

Red Bell Review ,

SOLD

I was on the fence between 4 and 5 stars until the recent Brett Berish episode, when Johnny used the adjective “banana-forward” as a tasting note for rum. I’m sold. 5 stars!
