What an episode of Radio Chatter I’ve put together for you today. Some of the final interviews from Rock On The Range.

First up, it’s Robert from STP talks about the band, his keys to success, how Motown influenced him, the Kings of Chaos and more. He even answered the question if he thought they were a grunge band or not…..all while being between two ferns. You’ll have to listen to understand that one.


Shannon Larkin and Tony Rombola from Godsmack are next, discussing their new album “When Legends Rise” and how this one was written much differently. They talk about the ‘rebirth’ of the band and about how they almost broke up. Their keys to success and lots more.

John Baizley from Baroness is third on the podcast talking about the touring schedule for the band playing all the festivals, the new album and how far into the process they are as well as some historic gigs here in Detroit. He discusses the line-up changes the band underwent as well as Metallica introducing them on stage! How kick ass!!!

Last, but not least, it’s Eric Vanlerberghe from I Prevail. What a few years these guys have had. From a suburb of Detroit, to the big stages all over the world, Eric talks about the band, influences, touring the world, heroes he’s met, even drinking a beer from a shoe…that wasn’t his. YUCK! That’s a funny story.

Heads up! At the end I share a couple clips from a couple killer episodes I have coming up in the next few weeks.

As always, thank you so much for listening!
