This round will contain less info about the film, and has no mentions of Robert Goulet, I promise. But it IS all about the usual things you discuss when it comes to THE KING. Stuff you just can't avoid when bringing up Elvis Aron Presley: Bloom County, Charles Bronson, 'lectric guitar pickups, Corey Feldman, Johnny Cash, electro shock therapy, 16 y…
 
Jackie, Brian, Dan and I are back to carry you on thru the end of "Metal Lords" like the ferryman over the river Styx (not the band). Arrive with coins over your eyes and be prepared for more Thrash Metal history, more jokes and hijinks with the gang and be prepared to learn the magical connection between this movie, Game of Thrones and Stephen Kin…
 
It's a bizness casual episode! Dan, Brian, Jackie and I watch this delightful coming of age drama together and geek out over metal minutiae. There's a decent amount of pausing the show to yell about things, which will continue in the next installment(s) I'm sure. Choose your way of supporting the show for no money or for maybe some money(shirts, do…
 
Hot on the heels of Halloween, John Carpenter lovingly crafted this tribute to The King and established his long-term friendship with Kurt Russell. Let's talk about Scotty Moore, Robert Goulet, Merle Kilgore, Lester Bangs, Public Enemy, Living Colour, Sam Phillips, Dick Clark and oh yes, ELVIS ARON PRESLEY. To me, yes he is The King. But so are LIt…
 
This movie is very special to me and so are the songs on the soundtrack. I hope you like this episode, much of it recorded months ago. There will be at least one or two more coming soon. It's funny, because my original intent was to publish a multi-hour episode on "Eddie &..." with a brief mention of "Streets of Fire" at the end, since Michael Pare…
 
Building on the last episode and doubling down on the dosage! If you already listened to part 1, you know what you're in for. Choose your way of supporting the show for no money or for maybe some money: https://linktr.ee/justtheworstever References and links: https://archive.org/details/ForgetIt71982 Neverland Dance of the Vampires Jim Steinman Pan…
 
Welcome to part 1 of a look at "Streets of Fire" featuring background on The Blasters and Jim Steinman. Lots more on the way, but I wanted to pop a new hour out instead of waiting to finish a larger episode. Choose your way of supporting the show for no money or for maybe some money: https://linktr.ee/justtheworstever References and links: Neverlan…
 
Sid. Nance. Cox. Others. I kept most of the talk focused on what happened with the Sex Pistols during the Sid Vicious era and what happened to Sid and Nancy after the breakup of the band. Lots of different perspectives on what went down at The Chelsea Hotel. Not a load of background on the making of the film this time, you can buy the Criterion edi…
 
It's a Gene Simmons episode! I go all over the timeline, but focus more on some happenings in the REVENGE era as well as the 80s excess in Gene's life. The stuff that happened while the band lost their heaviness and started rotating thru replacement guitarists. Also covered: yet another anti-rock n' roll tv show episode with a hokey satanic anthem …
 
More deepy-divey into the making of the Jack Butler guitar duel and the crafting of the specific guitar itself! Also a review of the recent Charvel Guitars documentary, some background on Joe Satriani's early years in San Fancisco, and more hyperactive shred chat with Dan and Brian. OH, and a major detour into everything Motley Crue was up to durin…
 
This, I predict, will go down in history as a muchly beloved episode due to the involvement of 2 delightful interlopers with greater shred cred than I. Get ready for the history of Steve Vai, his contributions to electric guitar design, his tutorship by Joe Satriani and Frank Zappa, and his involvement in "Crossroads." We also dig into Yngwie Malms…
 
Gilbert Gottfried as music history educator. The Faith No More | Metallica | Guns n’ Roses tour continued. An explanation of why nearly all but 2 forms of rock music vanished from radio in the late 90s. A list of other movies besides “Vanishing Point” that have radio DJs helping the protagonist. The reasons I'm not doing a Marilyn Manson episode. W…
 
We got Soundgarden, Guns n’ Roses, Faith No More, Audioslave, and Vanishing Point among other subjects to discuss. I take a near-forensic approach to the madness of the 1992 VMAs and the departure of Izzy Stradlin from the band he helped create. Also AXL sends a FAXL and throws pasta out a window. Duff punches a guy. Slash hires horn players. Steph…
 
Today I force myself to watch the Halloween episode from Season 6 of CHiPs featuring Ralph Malph from Happy Days, the bassist for Metallica, and the always-enchanting Mistress of the Dark, Elvira! I also lean heavily into Peter Criss and Paul Stanley's accounts of important moments in KISS-story like the recording of Destroyer and Psycho Circus. Su…
 
I attempt to cover all the angles that contribute to the question, “What’s the big deal with Robert Johnson and why do people obsess over him?” 1. Musical Proficiency 2. Lyrical intrigue 3. Hoodoo vs Devil connections 4. Tragic life story full of suffering 5. Mystery about technical details - in recording AND guitar technique, with one contributing…
 
I finally got back to an episode I had planned to do a year ago! Bill Haley was incredibly important to this specific portion of the Rock n' Roll timeline. Certain things just would not have happened they way they did without this artist and this (excellently written, acted and directed) film. I don't have patrons or sponsors. I do have a time-cons…
 
KEE-RYST this movie blows! If you're a Doors fan you'll be happy to know this voluminous episode is mostly about the band, not the movie(much like the Part 1 ep). Did Jim do heroin? Probably not, but Robbie definitely did. Is Ray a big wanker? Yes, but he's still the reason the band exists and continues to be famous. Is John helpful to have around …
 
This is a huge one, and it's only the first part! Not a deep dive on the film, though. I don't think it's warranted in this case. Next time we'll take on "Beyond The Doors" which is way worse. But you know that if you've heard the Janis Joplin episode, eh? A masterful refutation of the film lies here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrIEPQ-gAZ0 A l…
 
It's a good episode! If you listened to part one, it's as good as that. Plus lots of Lita Ford shenanigans, like how she obtained her awesome jeans in the "Kiss Me Deadly" video and kept George Lynch from stealing her god damn guitar cables. Also a troubling medical emergency that took place in Tokyo. Like, a disturbing one, anatomically - so consi…
 
I get all the angles I can find on the envisioning, productionizing, abandoning, distributing, internationalizing and appreciating this picture. It's not the usual burial you may have come to expect from a generation of stodgy rock critics of the time and savage young youtubers of today. All my stuff right now is at this link https://www.buymeacoff…
 
Well this one took some doin'. I'm proud to hand over my 1st Halloween episode, and it's chock full o' weirdness from beginning to end. Sync your teef into it, FIENDS! http://waitakerewalks.blogspot.com/2010/11/carducci-man-shirttry-to-lower-yourself.html http://waitakerewalks.blogspot.com/2012/01/night-misfits-met-motley-cruethe.html Eerie Von via…
 
I do a guitar tone comparison to demonstrate the production style contrasts between Bon era and mid-80s AC/DC. I also discuss more of the happenings of the "Who Made Who" yrs listen to the "AC/DC Live at Donnington" commentary so you don't have to and wrap up the saga with questions about why people guilty of heinous crimes(like Bill Cosby) against…
 
The Queens of Noise! Come and get it, boys! Let's talk about the movie that is inherently biased in favor of Joan and Cherie, but nonetheless a killer rock n' roll film about a band that could be a 7-season HBO series. And the ending would be almost as disappointing as Game of Thrones considering all the potential talent that was "wasted" in more w…
 
More Bon Scott, and more Stephen King. How did the band's first UK tour go? And who ruined it by dying an untimely death? (hint: not a member of AC/DC) Why didn't they take off in America? What song did Stephen King have to sing to convince Acca Dacca to do his soundtrack? And what did he do with the gift that they gave him after the film came out?…
 
Today's episode is simply me taking us through a handful of reference material and interviews I found extremely interesting and helpful for context, but aren't related directly to any one film I'm reviewing. The Rolling Stones finish up an east coast leg of their U.S. tour leading up to Altamont. Hunter S. Thompson helps us understand the Hell's An…
 
Like early AC/DC? Good! This one's for you. Like behind-the-scenes stories about filming movies that were huge disasters? This one's also for you! There's going to be a whole other episode after this one covering the non-glory that is post-"For Those About To Rock" and pre-"Razor's Edge" AC/DC, as well as more details about the filming and producti…
 
AH MAH GAWD, we finally made it to the end of the trilogy! Killogy maybe? Yar, indeed it shall be called henceforth. The man and the film that stared out this huge endeavor of an ongoing series of historical audio documents rife with important charismatic commentary. I'm so pleased you made it to the end with me. Thank you! If you enjoy this show, …
 
This is another intense, long one! A lot of similarities to the Andy Wood story, too. Only he didn't get totally dragged by the film industry twice between '79 and '84. But I came through it all a huge fan of Bette Midler now! What??? Support here: https://linktr.ee/justtheworstever Alice Echols on Amazon https://pressroom.usc.edu/alice-echols/…
 
I tear into some old notes I wrote up with in the early days of planning what would become this very series of shows. Rolling Stone's history of its stupid self is covered, and I give you my recommendations for great rock history books and writers I believe are more than worth paying attention to. Special appearances by Raymond Chandler and Stephen…
 
We got ourselves a long, satisfying road ahead of us, discussing the Chuck Berry in a variety of celluloid presentations. Today's episode will delve into the Chess Records biopic, "Cadillac Records" with a preview of "Go Johnny, Go" which will be our next episode about Chuck. We talk plugging, payola, Alan Freed, Leonard Chess, Chuck getting ripped…
 
I just go for it with some of the best bits of the Motorhead story. I can't do it all justice, but there's enough media out there for you to fill in the rest of the blanks yourself, don't you think? Buy me a Book(or coffee, or pants) After recording the Airheads Watch-a-Long Commentary I decided to devote an entire episode to the main man himself, …
 
I yammer about my cunning misdirections used to victimize my own audience, my self-serving deviations from the methodology of any semblance of appearing to be a proper historian, and I provide you with some tools to evaluate whether or not the music podcast or youtube channel you subscribe to is a complete waste of time. Support me here! https://li…
 
Support here: https://linktr.ee/justtheworstever if you like this show! I'm still learning how to do this all as I work through the process, and I appreciate everyone who listens, thank you for being here for it. It's gonna get SO VERY in depth this time! Part 2 of at least 4(?) on the making of Singles. I'll discuss the musical and personal lives …
 
Don Was records members of Nirvana, Sonic Youth, REM, Soul Asylum, Afghan Wigs, and Gumball as they record (in only 2 DAYS with no rehearsal beforehand) covers of covers that the Beatles covered in their Reeperbahn and Grosse Freiheit days when they had to sleep next to the women's toilets and get woken up by the sound of old ladies pissing every m…
