Johnny Dang is one of my favorite musicians out there. He may be most known as one of the three guitarists for O'Brother (who put out a truly fantastic album in 2020) but is quickly becoming a well respected composer after the debutrelease of his solo project Hisself called "in the end". We talked all things tone, songwriting, Sigur Ros, Johann Joh…
 
Happy New Year! Starting this year off right with a truly controversial round of Dad Libs with Wayne Lozinak of Hatebreed!

There's plenty of gear talk, show talk, coming up in the…
 
Taking the holiday week off from interviews and revisiting this classic Holiday film with two of my favorite film buffs. We're not saying they should remake "Die Hard"; but if they do, they better do it this way. I am joined by session drummer extraordinaire Jerry Roe (Friendship Commanders) as well as my dear friend Kevin Hilliard for this one. If…

If you're a drummer, you will love this talk... If you're not a drummer, you will love this talk. Jean-Paul Gaster is a true madman behind the kit, and his resume speaks for itself. Jean-Paul is one of (if not the) greatest drummers of our time, and his band Clutch is creeping up on 30 years of unapologetic, pure rock fury. I had a blast talking wi…
 
Very excited about this episode. Clay Tarver has an incredibly impressive resume across several mediums... You might know him for his innovative and angular guitar playing for bands like Chavez or Bullet Lavolta. You might know him for his work on films like "Joyride". Or maybe you know his work on hit shows like HBO's "Silicon Valley". I'm thrille…
 
Taking a week off from the normal interviews and talking about one of the greatest films ever made with two of the greatest dudes around!

It seems like ever …
 
Is a musical mad-scientist. Whether it's with devastatingly heavy riffs in the seminal hardcore band Botch or the mind-blowing loops and tap dancing of Minus the Bear, David Knudson is a Fret-Force to reckon with. We talk gear, riffs, what influenced him, what made him such an influential player, and his upcoming solo project which sounds awesome! …
 
The Adventures of Jason Hamacher are nothing short of legendary. Whether it be from the Frodus days, the Decahedron run, his tenure with Battery, playing with Combat Wounded Veteran, his current band Zealot RIP, managing Cave-In, his work with the Smithsonian, his work as a punk-rock Indiana Jones in Syria, or in with the art gallery he runs: Lost …
 
Norman has worn every hat in the industry, yet manages to maintain one of the most fantastic heads of hair.

We talk about his upbringing in the New York hardcore scene, songwriting, staying present duri…
 
If you told me 25 years ago that I would one day be talking to Lars Frederiksen for three hours about everything from gear, to family, to yeast infections, to following Ace Frehley into a bathroom.... I would have called you crazy. But here I am, sharing that very conversation.... Well, most of it. Lars is an insanely personable, disarming, genuine…
 
Mike Schleibaum joins Ross for one of the funniest rounds of Dad Libs thus far. Endless stories from Mike, lots of laughs, and one of the craziest tour stories I have ever heard.

Nick Reinhart is a musical madman. A true innovator and outlier when it comes to playing the guitar. If you are not familiar with his bands, I can assure you that you are familiar with his work in the pedal world. Nick is almost like the second generation of Tom Morello Mused players... This is a very insightful and fun conversation with a rare gen…
 
I'm gonna be real: The character limit on here won't let me even put a dent in Ian's resume... This dude is a true gear dork, an insanely influential bassist, and a dude that has done it all and will continue to do more. Most of you might know Ian from his work in the bands Kowloon Walled City, Less Art, Puig Destroyer, No Lights, Strangelight, and…
 
Hot Coffee!!!

He is a true master of the mic. We talk about his evolution as a lyricist, of of the worst shows the band has ever played, nerdy sci-f…
 
A man that needs little introduction here: The legendary Jim Adkins of the legendary Jimmy Eat World. If you're here for gear, hold me beer... because we get pretty nerdy with all things involving strings. Fun and insightful conversation on everything from pickups, to songwriting, to those nightmare gigs that end with testing cables. Be sure to che…
 
You'd think a man like Scott would be in jail for assault given his propensity to beat Toms. But he is instead enlisted to pummel the life pulse into such incredible acts like Tenacious D, John Carpenter, and much more on a regular basis. Was thrilled to have Scott crack me up doing this intense psycho-analysis project known as Dad-Libs. Be sure to…
 
Steve Pedulla is the Roger Deakins of gear, and Roger Deakins is the Steve Pedulla of cameras... At least that is what you will be telling yourself after this episode, as that's what I told myself after listening back to it. Steve is most known for his guitar work in the iconic rock band Thursday, but he has also put out a ton of work from behind t…

Taking a break from the normal long-form interview in this episode and playing a game of Dad-Libs with my friend Grant. The rules are simple: I take a bands wikipedia page, remove the key-players, album titles, band names, Grant blindly fills in the blanks, I read it back with his additions, and he has to guess the band. This was a fun experiment..…
 
Shawna Potter is a true force on stage as the singer for War On Women, and an awesome friend to chat it up over drinks while off stage! She's an accomplished singer, guitarist, writer, speaker, dog-whisperer, amp servicer, and much more!

Pete Moffett is one of the hardest working and most legendary drummers on stage, sidestage, backstage, and off stage.

As a cycling enthusiast, I was thrilled to learn that I had landed an interview with Lance Armstrong... When that ended up not being the case, I was relieved that this dude Matt Armstrong is not only a hilarious dude, but a truly innovative and gear savvy bassist. Fun conversation with not-Lance-Armstrong about everything from unconventional bass p…
 
He won't say anything on stage or on an album; but when he opens his mouth, Mike Sullivan is one of the funniest dudes around.

Lots of funny stuff in this one, and if you want to hear more (including another insane nightmare show st…

Caspian is not your typical Post-Rock band, but they always seem to be the first one that comes to mind when I hear the term. They recently released a monument of an album called "On Circles" which is available wherever you may listen to music. I was joined by longtime homies Philip and Jani to talk about their new album, the follow-up documentary,…
 
RE-UPLOADED! Apparently there was an audio issue with the first bounce. Anton has been wiping venue floors with people's jaws for a decade now leaving many hard of hearing as well as speechless in the process. His band O'Brother just released their fourth full-length, "You and I"... to no surprise, it is amazing. We talk writing, finding their soun…
 
I have been looking forward to this episode for a long time. A while back, Josh sent me some mixes of what was possibly a Shiner album, with no real release details or anything, so I could not ask to have him on here to talk about it... Well, now the album is out, and it is nothing short of phenomenal. We talked about the writing process for this r…
 
I really really really really wanted to get Ja Rule on the show to talk about his work with Swizz Beats and Metallica, but ended up with his brother Tucker. Most of you know Tucker as the drummer for Thursday, or maybe from his work with Frank Iero and the Future Violents... But now you will have the opportunity to know him on a deeper level. Don't…
 
Many might know Chris Johnson as the bassist for the genre-redefining, grammy-nominated band Deafheaven... But his ear and career (his CarEAR) goes much deeper than that. I talked to Chris about wearing several different hats within the band world, whether it be a sound engineer, a recording engineer, a bassist, and more! We talk about his insane G…
 
Christian Lembach is one of the most well-spoken, funny, and gear savvy guys out there making music these days. We talked about everything from The Room, to his writing process, to what gives him some of the heaviest tones to hit the stage. Beyond that, how his band Whores is handling the involuntary downtime. While it's quiet for them now, they ar…
 
Social distancing cannot keep Ross and Brian Cook from a bicoastal bro-down. Ross talks with Brian from Russian Circles, These Arms are Snakes, Botch, and more about everything from being a musician during a pandemic, to writing processes for different projects, to the importance of films like "Crank 2".
