I had an eventful afternoon! Instead of my normal studio time by myself I was joined by up and coming rock band, We As Human. These guys are great, super talented, fun and performing TONIGHT! Van Andel Arena at 6:30 you can check out the band as well as Skillet who will be closing the show tonight
Here it is! You remember a few months ago when Metal Head Ned and I interviewed Pop Evil? Well the video is here, thanks to our video guy/promotions assistant, Mike Corn. We had a great time hanging on the bus with the band, and they even convinced Ned it was a good idea to drink like 10 shots in 10 minutes... it wasn't a good idea.
Last night Asking Alexandria played at the Orbit Room but before they headed over there they hung out with me in the studio! We kind of covered everything, from the bands first time in Grand Rapids, where lead singer Danny had a random hook up outside the Intersection, to talk of their new song "Death Of Me," and even some acoustics thrown in the mix! Check it out, and if you want to skip my useless chatter fast foward the interview to about 1:45, that's when the band chimes in!
Back in August, Philip H. Anselmo and The Illegals made a tour stop here at The Intersection. It was most likely one of the most intense metal shows I have ever seen. Let's just say, Phil knows how to command a crowd. So of course, how could I not take this opportunity to interview this Metal Legend!
On of weekend of concert insanity, tons of concertgoers were either at the Avalanche Tour at the Orbit Room, or the massive metal show of Mastodon and Opeth at the Intersection. I, Ned The Metal Head, seized the opportunity to snag an interview with Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor. Am I wearing a mask? Well yea...if Mastodon wants you to wear a mask...you better damn well wear a mask.
Last week, one of the most entertaining metal acts Mushroomhead, made a stop at the Intersection. Mushroomhead is known for there insane shows, signature stage personas, water drums, and hard driving kick ass metal. I even got the chance to sit in with lead vocalist Waylon Reavis and talked about what his thoughts of modern day metal are.
During your lifetime, really RARE moments will occur to you. I have been playing the Final Fantasy game series for over 15 years and have been hearing the familiar music from Final Fantasy in that time. Heck...even my ringtone on my phone is from Final Fantasy. Then I got an email asking, "Hey, I see your a fan of Nobuo Uematsu, would you like to interview him and his new group Earthbound Papas?" My mouth dropped to the floor...Gamers? This is for you!
