Episode 29 brings more insanity as Mike, Pat, and Stick are
joined by two more childhood friends (Eric and Jim) to recount
growing up in a world where every kid listened to rock music,
played an electric guitar, and started a band. The subjects of
conversation are many, including Van Halen, Steve Vai, Led
Zeppelin, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley,
Kiss, Sammy Hagar, 5150, Eat em and Smile, Talas, Yngwie Malmsteen,
Jeff Scott Soto, Winery Dogs, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Tom
Morello, Defiant Ones, Tom Petty, The Gunslinger, Batman, comic
books, Dr. Dre, Bruno Mars, Culture Club, and a whole bunch of true
stories from the suburban 1970s. We thank all of you who continue
to support Rock Under Fire, and we welcome any new listeners to the
show. As a rock and roll podcast, 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. So there is still always something for everyone.
