As well as the weekly ‘Roll Call’ feature, during the show we’ll be announcing two dates to put in your diary:-

1. The next Classic Rock Show ’80s Special’. Part 2 (in our series of 10 shows that takes us year by year through the Rock decade that totally rocked) will be 1981! Journey, Van Halen, Foreigner, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Y&T, Motley Crue, Ozzy Osbourne, Def Leppard, REO Speedwagon, Styx…we could carry on, but that’s just a taster.

2. A very good friend of TCRS, ex-Hawkwind bassist Mr Alan Davey, will be joining us. As well as sharing some of his experiences on the road and in the studio, you’ll be the first to hear tracks from two separate album projects that are set for release in 2015. All-in-all, it’ll be packed with some great music and memories.

See you Thursday :D

Vinnie Paul of Hellyeah talks about Blood For Blood and album producer Kevin Churko, the new line-up and his infamous hats!

Having seen them totally decimate The Underworld last year, I was keen to see how Hellyeah’s new line-up was performing on the back of their ‘Blood For Blood’ release.

Friends and colleagues who saw Hellyeah at Bloodstock and on a number of dates on this tour had already told me that they were sounding better than ever.

10543596_10204135579896955_6514619416179427378_oGreg Tribbett and Bob Zilla have been replaced by Christian Brady (formerly with Magna-Fi) and Kyle Sanders (formerly with Bloodsimple and is the brother of Mastodon’s Troy Sanders) on guitar and bass respectively. These two exponents of their craft have brought with them another level of energy, positivity and musical focus to Hellyeah’s ‘live’ performances. It’s also noticeable that Chad Gray has more than decent enough backing for his vocals as a consequence of Christian and Kyle’s abilities.

We caught up with Vinnie Paul before they took to the stage and asked him about ‘Blood For Blood’, working with album producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, In This Moment, Hinder, Five Finger Death Punch) how the tour was going, but I began our chat by asking him about the infamous hats he sports from time to time.

1980 – A Classic Rock Show ‘Special’ tonight from 7pm!

Following our homage to the 70s, The Classic Rock Show is back with another ‘Special’, this time we’re taking you back to the 80s.

Tonight, we begin our quest to showcase some of the very best rock music from the 80s. But we just couldn’t squeeze a whole decade of great music into one three-hour show. So we decided to break it up into ten, yes ten, ‘Specials’…’80 through to ’89!! These will go to air over the coming months.

Our Facebook Group will be the usual place to get all the chat and comment during the show: www.facebook.com/groups/theclassicrockshow

Listen links can be found on our homepage.

See you at 7pm.

John Garcia to release his solo album!

John Garcia is set to release his solo album John Garcia on August 4th in the UK on Napalm Records!  John recently completed work on the first video from the album for the song “My Mind” and The Classic Rock Show will be discussing all this and much more with John very soon.

With ‘Vista Chino’, Garcia makes music very close to his ‘Kyuss’ roots, but on his self-titled solo album he also ventures out with some experiments and convinces all along the line. This record is full of first-class, catchy rock numbers that commute equally between Classic Rock and concise Stoner elements.

Once you’ve made contact and started ingesting the tracks ‘My Mind’ or ‘5000 Miles’, you will see this album is spreading like an infection to the body and one is happy to be involved in the short and crisp ‘Saddleback’ or  ‘Confusion’, which is strongly rooted in Blues. ‘Her Bullets Energy’ is the next ultra-bouncer on the record, with the legendary Robby Krieger (The Doors) on the guitar. John Garcia has delivered a multi-faceted and extremely intense solo album that will stir up more dust than a sandstorm in the California desert. Danko Jones, Tom Brayton, Mark Diamond and also Garcia’s old cohort of Kyuss, Nick Oliveri show up as guest musicians to round out this solo masterpiece.

A preview clip of the entire album can be viewed below.

‘John Garcia’ is available on CD, Vinyl and Digitally on Napalm Records on August 4, 2014 – pre-order here.

Keep an eye out for the interview with John.
