Radio Chatter with Breaking Benjamin’s Ben Burnley and Bad Wolves’ Doc Coyle Download

Download September 6th, 2018

Time to share my final interviews from the show last Saturday with Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin, Nothingmore, and Bad Wolves. I did an interview with Ivan Moody from FFDP in the lawn at the show! You can watch the interview here, or listen to it here.

Today it’s Benjamin and Doc’s turn.

Ben is up first and we touch a lot of bases. (btw, he sounds like Marilyn Manson when he’s talking….voice separated at birth?) You can watch the video of this interview here.

*The new album and tour

*Being in control of things….or not

*Baseline for success and how he got started in music

*Meeting his rock star heroes…and more

Doc Coyle is next. Doc has his own podcast and is great to talk to. We talked about…

*How the cover songs for “Zombie” catapulted their career.

*How the band came together

*Meeting up with Zoltan Bathory from FFDP who manages them.

*Breaking in the music industry

*New BW material

A big thank you to the guys for sitting down with me, and for you guys listening!


I’m on the socials @MeltdownWRIF. Hit me up! Leave me a VM at 248-586-2988. Rock on!!!
