Podcast Episode 39 – Kirk Windstein of Crowbar

During the latest episode of the Mars Attacks Podcast we have the extra special pleasure of interviewing Kirk Windstein of Crowbar, Down, and Kingdom of Sorrow. During the episode we discuss (among other things) Crowbar’s latest album Sever The Wicked Hand with Kirk, if he or the other members of Down have ever felt pressure to follow up the band’s classic debut Nola, as well as what he has taught or learned over the years while working with two of metal’s premier frontmen in Phil Anselmo, and Jamey Jasta.

Mix of new and classic cuts by Crowbar are played throughout the show.

Mars Attacks Podcast Episode 13 – Bruce Kulick’s Ten

This episode features an interview with Bruce Kulick. This episode can actually be considered the pilot for Ten, a show in which artists will pick ten songs that they feel define their legacy, or an episode can be based on a specific top, or in the case of this episode discuss a new album at great length. What we did with Bruce is discuss five tracks off of BK3 (sort of, more on this in a sec), and five classic Kiss tracks. I say sort of, because during the heat of the interview we only discussed four tracks off of BK3, but what I did was take a piece from the previous interview I did with him, and splice it into the episode. This way there are five tracks from BK3 discussed! I could give all types of excuses, but I dropped the ball. Oh well, I think the episode came out pretty good, regardless. Hope you the listeners feel the same!

Songs discussed are as follows:

Hand Of The King
Ain’t Gonna Die
I’m The Animal
Between The Lines
No Friend Of Mine
I Walk Alone
Tears Are Falling
Crazy Crazy Nights

You’ll also hear Master & Slave and Dogs Of Morrison played in the background during the episode.
