Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge

April 16, 2014 @ 10:46 am

Myles Kennedy has one of the most powerful voices in rock music today. So much so that when it came time for Slash to put together a band to go out on the road with his solo material, Myles was his first call. So much so that when Axl Rose decided to no-show Guns N Roses induction into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, Myles was the first call the band made to fill in for the legendary vocalist on some of the most beloved songs in rock history on the biggest rock stage of them all. And, guess what, Myles did more justice to those songs than Axl could ever do at this current stage of his career. Myles Kennedy is first and foremost the front-man for the hard rock group ALTER BRIDGE, who initially were known by most as “Creed with a different singer” but over the years have made a name for themselves with heart-pounding guitar riffs and the diverse and melodic range in Kennedy’s brilliant voice. Songs like Metalingus (which you might recognize as the entrance theme for popular WWE Superstar Edge) and Find the Real got them off to a hot start as a band years ago but recently their newest album Fortress has reminded everyone that Alter Bridge is not a band to take lightly with songs like Cry of Achilles, the opening track, kicking the ass of anyone who frequents the record. Myles joins me for a chat about their latest record, what it's like filling the shoes of some of the most polarizing figures in rock, splitting time between Alter Bridge and Slash and MUCH MUCH MORE! Follow Myles on twitter @MylesKennedy and Alter Bridge @AlterBridge and be sure to check them out on April 24th live at the Best Buy Theater in NYC!

Danny Tamberelli

April 8, 2014 @ 4:38 pm

Danny Tamberelli was the epitome of a child star in the 90’s. He was on Pete and Pete, Figure it Out, All That and any kid who watched Nickelodeon growing up would recognize those trademark cheeks and rosy red hair anywhere. After starring in several hit TV programs as well as films like The Mighty Ducks and Igby Goes Down, Tamberelli decided to leave the entertainment industry and do what most normal kids do, go to college and start a band. Although he still does comedy with his Man Boobs Comedy group and participates in the occasional reunion for his past shows like Pete and Pete, Tamberelli’s main focus is his band JOUNCE, an alt-rock group with a definite jam band sensibility. Jounce is playing at The Spaceland Ballroom in Hamden with Local H on April 23rd and at the Brooklyn Bowl the night before! Danny joins me on the podcast this week for a fun chat about his career as an actor, all of the fun shows, movies and projects he has been involved with and his true passion, music. Follow Danny on twitter @DTamberelli and head over to www.Jounce.Org for info on all of their upcoming shows!
