Rock On The Range 2017 Download

Download May 22nd, 2017

Another crazy weekend is in the books. The headline of this years Rock on the Range was the weather, and of course the cancellation of Soundgarden after Chris Cornell’s untimely death last week. I asked many of the artists about their thoughts on that and more on this edition of Radio Chatter. You may notice it sounds different today. My pro-tools crapped out and I had to throw this episode together with no bells and whistles. Hopefully the next podcast will be back up to snuff.

Up first is Michael Poulsen from Volbeat. They’re out on tour with Metallica and we talked about that, the crazy travel he did to witness the birth of his daughter, boxing and more. I also talked to Jerry and Jacoby from Papa Roach  about their new album “Crooked Teeth”. Dale and Clint from Seether swung by and filled us in on what’s going on in their camp, plus how different it was getting music as a young kid in South Africa. Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss played the National Anthem Friday and Saturday. She told her thoughts on taking on that privilege, plus her other projects she’s working on. Last but not least is Korn’s own Fieldy. We talked to him in a very unusual place. It was a “Spinal Tap” moment for sure. He talked about having Robert Trujillo’s son Tye play for him in South America, the upcoming Stone Sour tour and a great story about the only time he met Chris Cornell.

I hope you enjoy this rushed, un-polished version of Radio Chatter. A very special thanks goes out to my co-worker Jade Springart for making it happen with help on the interviews and putting this podcast together.
