This week our guest is Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery, also formerly of Dark New Day, Korn, Seether and Call Me No One. We talk about his debut solo album, God Bless The Renegades, the weight of putting his name on a record as opposed to a project with a band, Wolfgang Van Halen’s role in the project and the special songs he plans on performing live while touring the record. We also discuss the draw of decadence in rock and roll for young people, his thoughts on a healthy approach to social media, his relationship with God and the struggle to find trust, and an update on the next record from Sevendust.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss all the Mötley Crüe news, from the initial reunion announcement to the financials surrounding the tour to how much we would pay to see the touring package (with Def Leppard and Poison), our thoughts on if Slayer came back after a few years, and Zakk Sabbath making an announcement to commemorate Black Sabbath’s 50th anniversary.
Songs: Clint Lowery, “God Bless The Renegades” and “Kings," Avatarium, “The Fire I Long For”
