Download October 26th, 2018

Today, it’s a double dose of Talkin’ Rock with Brent Smith from Shinedown, then the guys from Rival Sons. Al Beck comes in at the end with rock news about Audioslave, Trivium, Dave Grohl and more.
Up first, it’s the Shinedown Frontman, Brent Smith. He told me about…
*Upcoming plans for the band, including 3 shows any SD fan would love to be at.
*A recent suicide prevention concert he played with guitarist Zack Myers and the importance of that
*The song “Get Up” from their curretn album, Attention Attention
*A great gift Brent got band-mate Eric Bass for his birthday
*How much Shinedown music is there that we haven’t heard
Rival Sons have been making the rounds doing un-plugged shows for radio stations across the country, and this past Thursday was our turn. Before they played, they sat down with me to talk about all things Rival Sons.
*Playing Rock On The Range
*Opening for Black Sabbath
*The new song “Do Your Worst” and the writing process for the upcoming record.
*The new album
*The state of rock music
*Getting on Atlantic Records…and more
Thanks so much for listening! The number to leave a voice mail is 248-586-2988.
