Podcast #206: Replacement

Pull up a chair and prepare to get sermonized by the one and only Mike Howe.It's been a very big year in the world of metal and we're only half way through it. Who'da thought Guns n' Roses would be back together (sort of), and AC/DC would be replacing Brian Johnson? Not me. Join Genghis & Ragman as they discuss who they think should replace Mr. Johnson - as well as the rumors surrounding his departure. Also, the boys tackle the G&R "reunion". Do we really care? Is it really a reunion with only half of the guys returning? Tune in to find out.

Next, the guys round up Metal Church vocalist Mike Howe for a one on on as he discusses his return to the band as well as their current album, XI. So grab a beer and have as much fun as the guys had making this show (Pimples notwithstanding).

Podcast #206: Replacement


It's that time of year...

Not that you'd notice based on our recent track record but we're hitting our summer sabbatical season and us folks at the Nightmare Studios campus will be taking some time off to do our thing for the next couple of months or so. That doesn't mean we won't post anything, it'll just be slower than usual (God knows what that could mean, right?).

Mostly, we'll be working on keeping John out of the loop on our whereabouts. We don't want a repeat of that time he showed up unannounced to one of our family reunions in his custom 4th of July jockstrap. I've never wanted to burn a flag before, but Crimeny!

In the meantime, you might keep an eye on Twitter or Facebook for the latest TRTR info like concert attendances or cool releases, fair enough? Have a great summer everybody, and be safe. It'll probably be our last gasp as a relatively happy country before the election...
