    SWORD | RICK HUGHES

    In this episode of Signals From Mars, we welcome Rick Hughes of the band Sword.

    Among the topics discussed include the band’s new album III, their first album in 34 years. The process behind making the album. How Rick felt that he had to continuously up his game to match what the rest of the band had done on the album. Touring with the likes of Metallica, Alice Cooper, and Motorhead. And thanks to a heads up from former Radioactive Metal host Roch Vaillancourt, I ask Rick about an incident with a Harley Davidson motorcycle. We also discuss the band playing festivals like Keep It True and Heavy Montreal.

    Signals From Mars 307 - The New Roses

    THE NEW ROSES | TIMMY ROUGH

    This episode of Signals From Mars features an interview with Timmy Rough, the singer and guitarist of the German band The New Roses.

    Among the topics discussed include the band’s new album, Sweet Poison. The diversity of the band’s influences. Touring the U.K. after Brexit. The band’s connection to the military, and playing for the German military in Afghanistan. Opening for bands such as Kiss, ZZ Top, Scorpions, and Aerosmith (among others). Playing on two editions of the Kiss Kruise, and why COVID-related rules have kept them from being part of this year’s Kruise. Bands they’d love to play with. Playing with bands much heavier than them like Slayer. Timmy gives his opinion on whether or not Pantera should get back together and play.

    Before wrapping the interview I had to ask about the name. Mainly because I once saw a prominent guitarist say “The New Roses, didn’t they know Guns N Roses existed?” So I ask Timmy about it. Hear what he has to say.

    HOUR ONE OCTOBER 21, 2022

    In this episode of Signals From Mars, my Patron Ed Ferguson joins the show for a solid music discussion.

    Among the topics discussed include his upbringing in an extremely religious household. Trying to listen to some of his favorites during the height of 80s Satanic Panic. The loss of danger in hard rock and metal. If you grow up with your folks blasting Slayer, are they seen as a dangerous and edgy band, like they were considered when they burst onto the scene? We also touch upon some new releases, guitar gear, the cost of vinyl, and metal-related books.

Loving Mars Attacks

Give some love to Victor and this show. Victor has a nice pace to his talks and interviews. I love the honesty. And he is right on with his views.
I’d give a 6th star to hear the ranting lunacy of the “southern preacher” guy…. well voiced for a guy from Jersey living in Spain.
