There’s a lot of heaviness on today’s Talkin’ Rock podcast. Thrash drumming legend, Dave Lombardo is up first, then, Mobile Deathcamp guitarist/singer, former GWAR bassist, Todd Evans is up second.
We start out talking to Dave about the film he scored, and if he envisions himself ever getting offstage and just doing that. We talk about other rock documentaries and his thoughts on some of them. I ask him if he’s going to the final Slayer show, what it’s like to work with Mike Patton, the strangest collaboration he’s been in – and he’s been in a few. I asked him about his thoughts on Ginger Baker, Vinnie Paul and Dimebag & the Clash of the Titans tour. Has he turned any bands down?
Up next it’s Todd Evans. He’s in a band called Mobile Deathcamp and also played in GWAR, and he has stories! We talk about when we met at a Gary Holt guitar clinic. He tells the story of joining GWAR as Beefcake the Mighty. He was in the band from 2002-2008 and the love/hate relationship he had with the band. He talks a lot about Dave Brockie and what a character he was. He recalls he first gig with the band and playing his bass with all the gear on. He remembers when he heard the news that Brockie had passed, or “left the building” as Todd says. Todd gets us up-to-date on Mobile Deathcamp and what they have going on. He’s got so many stories that he will be back on the pod…..
