Chris Hardwick is one of my biggest influences. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time. I remember him from “Singled Out” and “Shipwrecked,” but I really started to become a fan right around the time he did Rob Zombie’s “House of a 1000 Corpses” with Rainn Wilson. Chris was an excellent guest, he gave me over thirty minutes to chat with him and I’m extremely grateful for that. He had a lot of good advice about starting a podcast, so it was a great experience for me. Minutes before our interview it was announced that Disney was acquiring Lucas Films, so I got to be the first one to chat with The Nerdist about “Star Wars Episode VII.”

If you’re into heavy music you know about what went down with Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe this summer. If you follow the news in general you may have heard this story. On June 27 Randy Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic for essentially manslaughter. Two years prior, a 19-year-old fan Daniel Nosek had allegedly jumped on stage (as many as three times) and allegedly was pushed off stage by Randy Blythe in which he fell on his head, went into a coma and died a month later. Nobody in Lamb of God knew about this incident until the arrest. Blythe remained in prison until early August garnering tons of a support from not only the metal community but also the music community as a whole.
Randy’s out now and they’re out on tour with In Flames, Sylosis, Hatebreed and Hell Yeah. They released a great new album “Resolution” back in January. I got the chance to chat with drummer Chris Adler regarding the incident in Prague as well as the upcoming tour and “Resolution.”
I remember when I became a huge Aerosmith fan, it was the “Get a Grip” era but it wasn’t because of that album, although their popularity from that album probably helped. Some how I had made it to age thirteen with out hearing the song “Dream On,” but when I saw them play it with an orchestra on MTV I thought this is the greatest thing I’ve ever heard and from their my fandom grew.
Aerosmith has a new album coming out on November 6th of this year…my birthday, weird. Anyway I got the chance to chat with long time songwriter Marti Frederikson about the new Aerosmith album as well as his career as a songwriter. The guy has seen a lot, he needs to write a book some day.
