Rock Under Fire

Dec 31, 2016

For Episode 14, we raid the vault and give you a show never meant for release. Since our much-anticipated Christmas Spectacular got hit left and right with copyright claims and we are on holiday break, we're throwing this one out there in the meantime...a conversation that got left behind back in June as we were working on our "1966" episode. We were discussing the state of the podcast, then five episodes in, and decided to turn the mics on. In a very random half hour of subjects, we talk about Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Dolly Parton, Brad Gillis, Loverboy, The Allman Brothers, Tame Impala, Pearl Jam, and Jon Bon Jovi in a very aimless but fun episode. We return in January 2017!

We thank all of our supporters who stepped up to get behind this brand new podcast this past year. We make it a point not to focus on any one particular artist, band, or genre of music, but with that comes the reality that our show may not always appeal to everyone at the same time. The seven decades of rock and roll music along with its even longer history gives us an extremely broad canvas to create discussions on, drawing from different areas with each episode. There is something for everyone.

In the past six months in just 12 episodes we've discussed The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Prince, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Kiss, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, The Who, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, the Monterey Pop Festival, Woodstock, Doo Wop, The Beach Boys, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Steely Dan, The Strokes, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, The Doors, Patti Smith, The Ramones, Jimi Hendrix, Metallica, Guns n Roses, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, The Velvet Underground, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Cars, Cheap Trick, Heart, Dave Grohl, Jack White, digital streaming, the state of the music industry and record labels, the effect of rap and hip hop on rock, Neil Young, Talking Heads, Counting Crows, Boston, The Temptations, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, the Smithereens, Suzanne Vega, Van Halen, Rick Rubin, The Gun Club, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, The Mekons, UFO, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Chuck Klosterman, John Philip Sousa, Billy Joel, The Wipers, Iron Maiden, Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Waits, Thin Lizzy, the Bee Gees, Mozart, Beethoven, Puccini, Bob Marley, 5 Seconds of Summer, Twenty One Pilots, the Desert Trip concerts, aging rock stars, our favorite debut albums, and our most overrated and underrated artists. We've also been joined by two special guests, author and photographer Lydia Criss and writer and director Michael Lee Nirenberg.
