Podcast Interview: Mike Protich and Pat Gerasia (Red Sun Rising)

Sometimes important things get missed, and when they're found, you let out an expletive or a roaring DOH!  That is the case with this interview, that should have been posted back in May.  Sorry boys.  Nonetheless, this is a killer interview I conducted with the band Red Sun Rising back in April.  The interview was conducted on the first leg of their Peel tour.

The boys recently caught up with Red Sun Rising vocalist Mike Protich and drummer Pat Gerasia to discuss their latest EP Peel as well as the current tour.  Mike and Pat also discuss the value of using YouTube as a marketing tool.  The guys also give the meaning behind their sound which they have termed thread.  Tune it to hear this and much more.

Podcast Interview: Duane Morano

The boys recently caught up with guitarist Duane Morano, to discuss his 80's hard rock tinged release Incognito.  Duane gives us insight on how his debut record came together, as well as how he assembled an all star cast of musicians to give him a hand.  Duane was able to hook up with Terry Illous (XYZ), Jeff Northrup, Danny Vaughn (Tyketto) as well as Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper) to create a kick ass debut.  Even though Duane has has been on the scene for awhile, he is sort of a late bloomer, that never had the opportunity to get his music to the masses, until now.  Tune it to hear Duane's journey and much more.
