Talkin’ Rock with Damon Johnson and classic Them Crooked Vultures Download

01:00:22 Download February 18th

My relationship with Damon Johnson goes far back to Brother Cane, but I’ve really gotten to know him over the last decade or so. He has so many ties to Detroit….he played with Alice Cooper for about ten years, his wife is from here, and that’s just for starters. We do talk a little about that on today’s conversation, also….

-He tells me about his latest album Battlessons (It’s a ripper!)

-Why he’s using a Flying V guitar

-Working with famed producer Nick Raskulinecz

-Shooting the video

-A question about a broom closet at Al’s Crossroads 

..and TONS more.

(around the 40:00 mark) Then, it’s a classic interview from Them Crooked Vultures, featuring Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and the legendary John Paul Jones. This interview took place in October of 2009. We talked about how the band got started, a wild birthday party and lots more. This is a fun conversation that still stands up today. 

Thanks for listening!
