DON JAMIESON

The legendary comedian and That Metal Show co-host joins us to talk about the recent TMS Comedy Show reunion in New Jersey, which included Mark attempting to stump the audience with a very obscure Anthrax question. Don tells us about his early days, when it was cool to have comics perform as the opening act for bands, and the amazing and unnerving experience he had opening for Metallica. We learn that Don’s three career highlights include spending 10 years opening for Andrew Dice Clay, appearing at Metallica’s Orion Fest, and watching Howard Stern laugh at his jokes at various celebrity roasts. There’s also a fourth highlight…but you’ll have to listen to the full episode to find out what it is. Tease!

CELEBRATING EDDIE VAN HALEN WITH STEVE BROWN OF TRIXTER

Mark & Greg catch up with Steve Brown from Trixter and Def Leppard to talk about the passing of Eddie Van Halen.   We reflect on our individual memories and share some laughs while celebrating the life of Edward Lodewijk Van Halen.

 

DON DOKKEN

Don joins us to take a look back on some of his shoots with Mark over the years, and tells the story of the wardrobe he despised wearing for the Under Lock & Key album cover session. He gives firsthand insight into what it was like to work with the Weissguy, as well as why he let him live in his house while he was on the road touring the world with Dokken. Don also opens up about what he saw, or more accurately, didn’t see, in Metallica in the early days, and how he was admittedly very wrong—so much so that he reveals how hard it was to follow them on the bill during the 1988 Monsters of Rock tour. Lots of great stories, wrapped up in a chat about the new Dokken album of “Lost Songs.”

DANNY MURO, THE WHITE TIGER KING

Danny Muro, founder and guitar player of early 1980s Jersey Shore rockers White Tiger, joins us to give the inside scoop on what Mark was like in the early days, and how he cut his teeth shooting the band. After White Tiger ended in 1982, Danny went on to create some of the most iconic heavy metal albums of all time, including the Overkill album F*ck You! He also shocks us with an incredible story about being in an early version of what ultimately became Bon Jovi. Now, 40 years later, Danny is back with his White Tiger band mate Neal Thomas in a new act, The Killin’ Floor Project.
