Radio Chatter with Pop Evil, Halestorm, and Jason Hook from Five Finger Death Punch Download

Download October 2nd, 2017

What an event RIFF Fest was! September 29th, 2017 was the final concert at DTE for the season and it went off in a big way. All sorts of bands played including the ones on this edition of Radio Chatter and headlined by Rob Zombie.

First up is 4/5th’s of Pop Evil. For some reason, Leigh wasn’t around for the sit-down. Even though, it’s a great conversation with Matt, Haley, Dave and Nick. They talk about the new music they’re working on, picking songs for the stage, guitar influences and the keen musical ear Haley’s father has…and more.

Second, are the guys from Halestorm. The guys are no strangers to WRIF. They’re also working on new music and they talked about that and how far they’re into it. The guys talked about the writing process for the new stuff, Lzzy working with Tom Keifer, and her induction into the Hall of Heavy Metal, plus more.

Finally it’s Jason Hook’s turn. It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of his “Hired Gun” documentary. If you’re a music fan, it’s def a good watch. They also have new music done, but it can’t be released yet. He talks about the reason for that, how he likes making albums, what he wishes for the guys in his band and more. (NSFW language from potty mouth Jason..HA!)
