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.

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.

Thanks for listening. Come and join us on a Thursday night by tuning into ‘The Classic Rock Show’!

A little bit of this, that and the other on The Classic Rock Show

This coming Thursday on The Classic Rock Show, we’ll have a little bit of this, that and the other.

What do we mean by that? Classic Rock, Glam Rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, NWOBHM, Prog Rock, Southern Rock, Blues Rock, a little stick of Blackpool rock (we’re joking). How does that sound to you?

The Classic Rock Show

Oh yes…and we’ll have your requests to play too. The ‘Request-line’ opens at Midday today – look out for it!

Facebook event details are here.

Speak again soon!

Part 2 of the John McCoy interview is now available via #mixcloud

Hello again.

Part 2, the final part of the interview with John McCoy, is now available. We ended Part 1 on the subject of Gillan’s last gig at Wembley. If you haven’t heard Part 1 yet, you can do so by clicking this link here. It’s a great listen – it’s full of rock n roll history.

In Part 2, I began by asking John how this and previous experiences have come to shape his approach to the work he does in the studio when producing bands. The hugely popular Serbian band Riblja Čorba reached #1 with a John McCoy produced album, and John talks about the challenges working with non-English speaking musicians. He also talks about his association with Angel Air Records www.angelair.co.uk

It all makes, I hope, for an entertaining listen into the life of one of Britain’s most talented and recognisable musicians / record producers.

You can listen to Part 2 here.
