Welcome to the Nothing Shocking Podcast. On this weeks episode our guest is bass legend Tony Levin

Zoiks! Online Interviews: Halestorm

0

Halestorm is quickly becoming one of my favorite newer bands. The first time I saw them live was on the Uproar tour with Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed. I had gone to that show wanting to catch Hell Yeah not knowing much about Halestorm. Unfortunately the Hell Yeah set overlapped a little bit with the Halestorm set, so I only caught the tale end of their set and they did this cool drum thing that caught my attention. Immediately I went home and started looking shit up on you tube and a fan was born.

I was sent to cover The Carnival of Madness stop in Bridgeview Illinois at Toyota Park. The weather was gloomy, but I thought for sure the show would go on. New Medicine and Cavo played their entire sets when Halestorm took the stage and performed like a headliner. It seemed like the rain only made them play better. Unfortunately the weather was starting to get out of control and during Halestorm’s final song the plug was pulled and the rest of the concert was cancelled. While it sucks for the fans that came out to see Chevelle and Evanescence it was still a pretty cool experience that none of us will ever forget…for better or worse. Fortunately for me I got the chance to hang out in Halestorm’s dressing room and chat with the band.
