A few weeks ago I decided to do a Mr Bungle series in celebration of their new album "The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo" coming out this Friday.
Part 1 is with Scott Ian who is now a member of Mr Bungle and like me he is also a huge Fan. For the next 3 days you will hear from Scott Ian, Trevor Dunn and Trey Spruance talking all things Bungle.
I saw the new line up of Mr Bungle which includes the killer Dave Lombardo on drums right before the lock down and it was absolutely next level. Mike Patton has always blown my mind in any project he is a part of especially Mr Bungle.
Do yourself a favor and dive deep into their back catalog and also watch their Pay Per View this Halloween night.
All info on Mr Bungle's can be found on their website https://mrbungle.com

Today I sit down with the Metal God himself Mr Rob Halford and talk all about his new book CONFESS.
I've been a huge fan of Judas Priest since the first time I heard Unleashed In The East back around 1980. I've seen the band every tour since Point Of Entry and I must say Priest is one of the greatest Live bands of all time.
It was an honor to sit down with Rob and talk all things Priest including the US festival, opening for Led Zeppelin in 1977, Motorcycles and of course the Denim and Leather.
I hope you guys all dig this episode as much as I did doing it.
