Talkin’ Rock with Ministry’s Al Jourgensen and All That Remains Phil Labonte Download

35:39 Download November 8th, 2018

It’s another double banger of rock artists today on Talkin’ Rock. Up first, it’s legendary Ministry frontman, Al Jourgensen. This guy is so much fun to talk to. Very entertaining! He’s out on tour with his band, and coming to a town near you. We talk about tons of stuff, including……
*Never winning a Grammy
*The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame
*His 60th birthday and how he celebrated
*The Tour
*Would he collaborate with anyone on the other side of the political aisle
*How he records his music
*When he got political
*Other projects he’s working on (you’ll never believe who’s album he’s producing)
*Social media…and more

Up next, (around 22 minutes) it’s another frontman. This time Phil Labonte from All That Remains. There’s lots going on in their camp. Of course, we talk about the passing of guitarist Oli Herbert last month and the memorial service that was suppose to happen this Sunday. We also talked a lot about the new album…..
*Danny from Asking Alexandria helping out on a track
*Covering for Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch a couple years ago
*Keeping politics out of their music
*Recording today in different parts of the world
*Veteran causes
My thoughts and prayers are with Phil and guys from the band over the passing of Oli. Tough time for them, but hopefully dropping this new album will help in the healing process.
