Customer ReviewsSee All
Just checked out the Weezer episode, one of my favorite bands. The back-and-forth discussion and the knowledge about the band and its history is just fantastic. The show could probably use a little editing to streamline it, and it'd be even stronger, but it is headed in a fantastic direction and I really enjoyed it. I don't typically listen to music podcasts, but I'd recommend this one to people looking for the stories on their favorite bands. Bravo!
Fun and Informative
I found out about this podcast because they started following me on Twitter (not sure why) but decided to give them a listen. I’m glad I did. I’ve listened to 8 of the 11 episodes that have been posted so far. Just finished the Kid Rock episode. They get fairly in-depth on the subjects. Also it sounds like the hosts have been friends for a long time and have great chemistry together. Don’t play a drinking game when they say “typical” though. You’d get messed up pretty quickly.
Really enjoy their insight and the backstories to these larger than life icons!
