Has Doc Coyle actually played onstage with at least one member of Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax (the Big 4)? Did the Bad Wolves / former God Forbid guitarist once get into a backstage wrestling match with Killswitch Engage’s former singer Howard Jones? Are Slipknot and Limp Bizkit among the many bands that’s asked Doc to fill in for their guitarists on tour?
Find out in a new episode of “Tell The Truth (And A Lie)” - an interview series where musicians share two obscure facts about themselves and one fib that could fool even a diehard fan. Matt and Zach then have to use their music knowledge to determine which 2 facts are true and which is a lie.
And listen to part 1 of our chat with Doc in “There Goes My Hero” - where Doc recalls how he ended up in a cover band with members of Metallica, how he bonded with Dave Grohl over sneakers, how Dimebag Darrell “blessed” God Forbid’s album “Gone Forever”, how he’s been able to cope with his mother’s passing during a global pandemic, and whether he feels metal is more or less accepting of different races and cultures.
