Three Days Grace interview with LA Lloyd
Three Days Grace released their latest album Explosions on May 6, 2022. Just the same as many bands regarding recording a new album, the dynamic shifted tremendously. Each member had to work on their parts individually due to lockdowns resulting from COVID-19. While using ZOOM technology to communicate, Howard Benson produced the album and assisted everyone on how to get the best from each other. Hear the great stories behind the making of their #1 song So Called Life. In addition, hear how a tragic tornado in Mayfield, KY led to the backdrop for the video for their song Lifetime.
Pop Evil (Leigh Kakaty) interview with LA Lloyd
Pop Evil has literally co-hosted the LA Lloyd Rock 30 every time they have released a new album or featured single. Their vocalist Leigh Kakaty joins LA Lloyd for his 16th appearance and there will be several things discussed on this Podcast. First of all, what is the story on their Twitter page showing a photo of Leigh with Mike Tyson? Eye of the Storm is a song that came to be when the band was unable to tour. Everyone on the Pop Evil team agreed that this one needed to be finished and get it out to the fans as quick as possible. If you love the "blue-collar" work ethic of Pop Evil, you are sure to enjoy this conversation with Leigh and LA Lloyd.
Chris Motionless (Motionless In White) interview with LA Lloyd
Over the past few years LA Lloyd and Chris Motionless have struck up a friendship. So it's fitting that LA Lloyd welcomes Chris to hang out before the release of Motionless In White's album Scoring The End Of The World comes out June 10, 2022. Did you know a photo taken with Chris Motionless and LA Lloyd became a meme that went viral? The phrase said "Still getting together with your friend from High School even though you went down very different paths." You'll hear them have a good chuckle about this photo on the podcast.
The Offspring interview with LA Lloyd
The Offspring has had one hell of a ride since their first Number One song "Come Out And Play" was released in 1994. LA Lloyd struck up a relationship with them that same year that has continued through the present. Dexter and Noodles, vocalist and guitarist, are featured on this LA Lloyd Podcast. Let The Bad Times Roll is the tenth album from the band and their first offering in eight years. According to the band, "There wasn’t a break up, no hiatus (they’ve kept up a steady level of touring during the span between albums), simply the band likes to take their time." Did you know that The Offspring vocalist Dexter Holland has a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from USC? He said, “I had kept in touch with my professors and they encouraged me to come back and finish it up. The band was cool about it,' before adding with a laugh, 'and that only took five years.'” Great stories like this throughout the Podcast.
Chris Jericho from Fozzy interview with LA Lloyd
Chris Jericho: Professional wrestler, Podcast host and frontman for Fozzy. We will cover a lot of things including the release of a new album called Boombox, best and worst guests on the Talk Is Jericho Podcast, and a rock and wrestling cruise. When Chris Jericho was last on the show, we were together at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Dallas in 2019 where he was on a panel discussing how to strategically do a Podcast that generates a huge audience. He has done over 600 podcasts with some exciting guests along the way ranging from the top rock stars, TV and movie celebrities and just everyday people who have a great story to share. Chris will go in-depth on what it takes to be a good host by listening to his guests and take the listeners on a journey with the stories told.
Dorothy interview with LA Lloyd
Dorothy Martin, vocalist for Dorothy, the band, released her latest album "Gifts from the Holy Ghost" April 22, 2022. The title of Dorothy's album derived from Dorothy witnessing her guitar tech overdosing and literally died. She prayed for him to come back, which he did, and witnessing this grew her spirituality tremendously.
Rest in Peace is the first single from "Gifts from the Holy Ghost." Dorothy says it could be interpreted as a break-up song but there are many ways this could relate to the listener as she will explain in this Podcast.
Dorothy and LA Lloyd talk about the untimely passing of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. In the conversation, she felt the track "Black Sheep" is dedicated to her fans and a perfect song to play for Taylor.
