The Story of Rock and Roll Season 2, Episode 1 went out live at midnight on 3 Dec 2020. It was a great little show, a very decent way to start off the new decade. God knows where we’ll be in another 10 years, pretty sure podcasts like this will be like talking about cassette tapes. It was great to be back in the midnight time slot, but it felt like it was over before we started.
The show kicked off with Krokus followed by a bit of Walking in the ‘Shadow of the Blues’. That was courtesy of White Snake and then we were off and running, pedal to the metal for the next two hours. We dealt with the Ozzy Osbourne, deathbed or no deathbed issue, contemplated a ‘Post American World‘ with Megadeth and checked out some Papa Roach. It’s hard to believe Papa Roach have been around for 20 years! The highlight of the show for me was Slipknot with ‘Opium of the People‘, hearing a song like that in the early of the morning is just so special. The South African music was covered by Cutting Jade, The Color Blew and of course Seether.
Artists featured this episode include: Megadeth, Joe Bonamassa, Cutting Jade, ACDC, Krokus, Ramones, The Color Blew, Whitesnake, Night Ranger, Metallica, Ozzy Obourne, Kid Rock, Seether, Black Label Society, Clutch, Wolfmother, My Chemical Romance, Thin Lizzy, Slipknot, John Mellencamp, Social Distortion, Papa Roach, Rainbow, Volbeat, Soundgarden & The Gaslight Anthem.
