Podcast #223: Classical
Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 11:06PM
Ragman in Frankie Banali, Podcasts, Quiet Riot, classical music, orchestra, relevance

So you say we got funny faces? We got no worries. Cuz Frankie B's in the house, baby!Can a metal band get street cred by hiring an orchestra to play with them live?  Does classical music have any legitimate similarities to metal (or vice versa)? Hell, yeah it does! Join Genghis & Ragman as they discuss the best and worst bands that have hooked up with orchestras, how bands/artists attempt to stay relevant in the new millennium, and whether it's a good thing if a classic artist tries to expand to a larger audience. Tune in to find out all that and more...

Next, the boys chased down Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali for a one-on-one where he discussed the band's latest record, Road Rage, as well as their current tour plans. HORNS UP!
