Today on LET THERE BE TALK my guest is the incredible Riff Master himself Mr.Bill Kelliher of Mastodon.

It was an honor to talk to Bill a few weeks back before soundcheck at their NYC show in Coney Island.Bill and I cover all kinds of ground including Songwriting,Music Business,Guitars and of course their new record Emperor Of Sand and the new EP Cold Dark Place which is shaping up to be one their all time best if you ask me.

Over the last few years Mastodon has become one of my all time favorites. This band constantly pushes the envelope and takes chances  never putting out the same record twice.

I highly recommend you start with the latest EP and work your way back thru their 17 year career.

Make sure you catch Mastodon on tour all summer.

Its another "Handmade Edition" of LET THERE BE TALK.

My guest is the Tone Genius himself Mr Fil Olivieri owner of the incredible Guitar Amp and Pedal company called Solodallas.

Years ago Fil set out to find out how Angus Young of AC/DC got his incredible guitar tone on the Back in Black Album and what Fil found out will surprise you.

We run down the rabbit hole of Tone and our love of AC/DC on this episode and even if you don't love guitar or AC/DC which I find hard to believe you will love this conversation.

Fil is an incredible human and has a huge passion for Rock n Roll and i think you guys will love him after you hear us talk about all things Rock.

Check out his website and his YOUTUBE channel.

His 2016 record THE MARCUS KING BAND is hands down one of the best records i've heard in years.
