Mars Attacks Podcast 34 – Jean Beauvoir

During this episode we have the pleasure if interviewing Jean Beuvoir lead singer/guitarist of Crown of Thorns. Jean has worked with some of the biggest artists of all time, Kiss, Ramones, The Plasmatics and Bruce Springsteen just to name a few. During this interview we discuss why he decided to put Crown Of Thorns back together, what it was like to work with all of the aforementioned artists, and what he’s been up to since the release of the last Crown Of Thorns album Faith. We also veer off of the musical path and talk a little bit about race relations, and how they may have or not have affected him as a person and a musician; as well as how things have changed over the years.

Throughout the episode you will hear the following tracks by Crown of Thorns:

Rock Ready
Cold Blooded Bitch

This episode contains the first part of an interview I conducted with former Helloween lead singer Michael Kiske. He just recently put out an album with Amanda Somerville called Kiske Somerville, and I was lucky enough to interview him regarding the album, his past with Helloween, and his current band Unisonic.
