Meltdown on WRIF

Weekdays 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Talkin’ Rock with Rob Zombie Guitarist John 5 Download

44:40 Download February 14th

John 5 returns to Talkin’ Rock as he’s currently out on tour with Queensryche. What a bill!  I had a chance to see the show last night, and it’s a killer double bill!

Since the show was in John’s hometown of Detroit, he was nice enough to come by the studio and do this interview in person, with a film crew and his sister and brother-in-law. We cover lots of topics – the new Zombie album, his thoughts on his old boss, David Lee Roth, touring with KISS, a story of a high school teacher telling him he’d never make it and his live Invasion album that’s coming out. How and why did he don the makeup? What happened the first time he met Rob? What were his thoughts at the passing of Neil Peart? As everyone knows, he’s a giant KISS fan, so we talk a little about them, RIFF Fest and more. 

Al Beck finally decides to come to work and do rock news. Lots going on today including news on Green Day, Ozzy, KISS playing America’s Got Talent, Tommy Lee on the “Goldberg’s”, Foo Fighters news and a band that has this killer app to hear their new song. That is wild!

Chase from Chase Engel and the Night Shift round out the podcast. They’re an up and coming band, playing a big show with Sponge on February 22nd at Diesel Concert Lounge. He tells me about doing some shows with Buckcherry and some really exciting 2020 plans, as well as their connection to the band Tesla. 

Thank you so much for listening!! 5 star ratings go a long way on Apple and iTunes.
