What a day! July 12th 2017 Metallica brought the rock to Detroit.

Before the bands took to the stage they sat down with me for a few minutes. Up first, the legend, James Hetfield. What an honor to talk to him! We discussed the new album and the response that they’ve gotten from the fans. He told me about crashing a motorcycle at Kid Rock’s house and breaking some bones. He let me in on the writing process and riff creating that he goes through for new music. With this new album James told me about a new generation of Metallica fans that are coming to the shows and more.

Johnny and Zacky from Avenged are up next. They talked to me for a few minutes in their dressing room before taking to the stage. They talked about covering a Mr. Bungle song, dumpster BBQ’s in Michigan, the pranks they’ve played on Synyster Gates, and more.

Michael Poulsen was the first interview I did but I saved it for last on the podcast. We talk albums that shaped his love for music, a little about his past death metal bands, breaking in the USA and working the big stage. Of course we had to talk about boxing with the Mcgregor – Mayweather fight coming up next month and what he’ll be doing that night….and it’s not watching the fight, live anyways. Oh, see why he calls Volbeat the “Golden Girls” of rock-n-roll! LOL That’s just the tip of what we talked about.

Enjoy!
