Today I sit down with legendary drummer Chris Slade.

Chris started out his professional career at 16 years old playing drums for Tom Jones. From there he became a founding member of Manfred Mann's Earth Band recording 8 studio albums from 1972 to 1978. 

After a 1 year tour with the great David Gilmour another legend Jimmy Page called him to join the super group The Firm.

Most people really know Chris from his time in AC/DC recording and touring on the smash hit record The Razors Edge. That record was loaded with hits including Thunderstuck, Moneytalks and Are You Ready.

After the return of Phil Rudd, Chris moved on and played in his own group until 2015 when he was asked to return to AC/DC after Phil Rudd had legal problems.

Check out Chris Slade Timeline on all streaming platforms.

Hope you guys enjoy this episode and if you are a big AC/DC fan check out my interviews with all of AC/DC right here on my YouTube channel.

Imagine you’re 20 years old and you’re playing drums in Santana and the band gets asked to play WOODSTOCK. Thats exactly what happened to my guest Micheal Shrieve back in 1969.

Rock n Roll Hall Of Famer Michael Shrieve has had an incredible career behind the kit and his stories are amazing.

I first saw him play in 1984 with the supergroup H.S.A.S. that included Neal Schon, Sammy Hagar and Kenny Aaronson. That record is so underrated and I always wondered what could of happened if they kept going. 

We dive into his career including how he recorded his latest record Drums Of Compassion which is out right now on all the streaming platforms.
