"In our first interview Aerosmith's Tom Hamilton discusses the band's current Let Rock Rule tour along with opener Slash (with Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators), the late Dick Wagner (and his contributions to the Get Your Wings album), what keeps him on the road and making music, offers his opinion on various Aerosmith albums (including Toys In The Attic, Rocks, Done With Mirrors, and Music From Another Dimension), would he prefer recording another Lord Of The Thighs or Pink, the upcoming Joe Perry book and much more."

"Our second interview is with bass wiz, Marco Mendoza (former Whitesnake, Black Star Riders and Thin Lizzy) of the Dead Daisies. Marco talks about being on the Def Leppard / KISS tour this summer, his new band The Dead Daisies (their new album and future), his trio, and much more."

Marco Mendoza shares his story of addiction and recovery. Now sober 26 years, he reflects on his life journey. From getting married at 16, and a father by twenty, to being homeless and addicted to drugs – he doesn’t hold back.

We also talk about his music career post recovery – and he explains the delicate dance of being in bands with David Coverdale and John Sykes at the same time, and his attempts to bring them back together (hint: he got VERY close).
