It's a good episode! If you listened to part one, it's as good as that. Plus lots of Lita Ford shenanigans, like how she obtained her awesome jeans in the "Kiss Me Deadly" video and kept George Lynch from stealing her god damn guitar cables. Also a troubling medical emergency that took place in Tokyo. Like, a disturbing one, anatomically - so consi…
 
I get all the angles I can find on the envisioning, productionizing, abandoning, distributing, internationalizing and appreciating this picture. It's not the usual burial you may have come to expect from a generation of stodgy rock critics of the time and savage young youtubers of today. All my stuff right now is at this link https://www.buymeacoff…
 
Well this one took some doin'. I'm proud to hand over my 1st Halloween episode, and it's chock full o' weirdness from beginning to end. Sync your teef into it, FIENDS! http://waitakerewalks.blogspot.com/2010/11/carducci-man-shirttry-to-lower-yourself.html http://waitakerewalks.blogspot.com/2012/01/night-misfits-met-motley-cruethe.html Eerie Von via…
 
I do a guitar tone comparison to demonstrate the production style contrasts between Bon era and mid-80s AC/DC. I also discuss more of the happenings of the "Who Made Who" yrs listen to the "AC/DC Live at Donnington" commentary so you don't have to and wrap up the saga with questions about why people guilty of heinous crimes(like Bill Cosby) against…
 
The Queens of Noise! Come and get it, boys! Let's talk about the movie that is inherently biased in favor of Joan and Cherie, but nonetheless a killer rock n' roll film about a band that could be a 7-season HBO series. And the ending would be almost as disappointing as Game of Thrones considering all the potential talent that was "wasted" in more w…
 
More Bon Scott, and more Stephen King. How did the band's first UK tour go? And who ruined it by dying an untimely death? (hint: not a member of AC/DC) Why didn't they take off in America? What song did Stephen King have to sing to convince Acca Dacca to do his soundtrack? And what did he do with the gift that they gave him after the film came out?…
 
Today's episode is simply me taking us through a handful of reference material and interviews I found extremely interesting and helpful for context, but aren't related directly to any one film I'm reviewing. The Rolling Stones finish up an east coast leg of their U.S. tour leading up to Altamont. Hunter S. Thompson helps us understand the Hell's An…
 
Like early AC/DC? Good! This one's for you. Like behind-the-scenes stories about filming movies that were huge disasters? This one's also for you! There's going to be a whole other episode after this one covering the non-glory that is post-"For Those About To Rock" and pre-"Razor's Edge" AC/DC, as well as more details about the filming and producti…
 
AH MAH GAWD, we finally made it to the end of the trilogy! Killogy maybe? Yar, indeed it shall be called henceforth. The man and the film that stared out this huge endeavor of an ongoing series of historical audio documents rife with important charismatic commentary. I'm so pleased you made it to the end with me. Thank you! If you enjoy this show, …
 
This is another intense, long one! A lot of similarities to the Andy Wood story, too. Only he didn't get totally dragged by the film industry twice between '79 and '84. But I came through it all a huge fan of Bette Midler now! What??? Buy me a Book(or coffee, or pants) Alice Echols on Amazon https://pressroom.usc.edu/alice-echols/…
 
I tear into some old notes I wrote up with in the early days of planning what would become this very series of shows. Rolling Stone's history of its stupid self is covered, and I give you my recommendations for great rock history books and writers I believe are more than worth paying attention to. Special appearances by Raymond Chandler and Stephen…
 
We got ourselves a long, satisfying road ahead of us, discussing the Chuck Berry in a variety of celluloid presentations. Today's episode will delve into the Chess Records biopic, "Cadillac Records" with a preview of "Go Johnny, Go" which will be our next episode about Chuck. We talk plugging, payola, Alan Freed, Leonard Chess, Chuck getting ripped…
 
I just go for it with some of the best bits of the Motorhead story. I can't do it all justice, but there's enough media out there for you to fill in the rest of the blanks yourself, don't you think? Buy me a Book(or coffee, or pants) After recording the Airheads Watch-a-Long Commentary I decided to devote an entire episode to the main man himself, …
 
I yammer about my cunning misdirections used to victimize my own audience, my self-serving deviations from the methodology of any semblance of appearing to be a proper historian, and I provide you with some tools to evaluate whether or not the music podcast or youtube channel you subscribe to is a complete waste of time. Support me here! https://li…
 
Support here: https://linktr.ee/justtheworstever if you like this show! I'm still learning how to do this all as I work through the process, and I appreciate everyone who listens, thank you for being here for it. It's gonna get SO VERY in depth this time! Part 2 of at least 4(?) on the making of Singles. I'll discuss the musical and personal lives …
 
Don Was records members of Nirvana, Sonic Youth, REM, Soul Asylum, Afghan Wigs, and Gumball as they record (in only 2 DAYS with no rehearsal beforehand) covers of covers that the Beatles covered in their Reeperbahn and Grosse Freiheit days when they had to sleep next to the women's toilets and get woken up by the sound of old ladies pissing every m…
 
Cameron Crowe would be so proud of the award I've bestowed upon him. This episode allows me to take some meandering paths. You could go so far as to accuse me of being unfocused and noncommittal to the high calling of delivering sharp, energetic and intentional content that is immediately actionable, were you an uncouth swine who cared not a'tall f…
 
My pal Dan and I spent X-mas watching this rock n' roll favorite beloved by rockers and radio station employees to this day. We break down the making of the film, the many musical considerations involved in the soundtrack, the stellar comedy cast, and overall how the guy who directed Heathers and Hudson Hawk + the guy who wrote XXX, The Jerky Boys …
 
In our first episode we delve into one of the later examples of the 50's nostalgia boom of the 1980's. This film is packed with quality components with a final result that hasn't decided what it wants to be when it grows up. https://linktr.ee/justtheworstever https://www.buymeacoffee.com/justtheworst…
