and the Show Must Go On
Written by The Rock Train on 6th December 2011
This week’s edition of The Rock Train is an emotional tribute to Sam’s Mum who sadly passed away last week.
As well as some very personal music choices, The Rock Train features 3 interviews this week.
First interview up is Sam chatting to rockers Voodoo Six backstage at Rock City in Nottingham literally as they were about to take to the stage. The lads talk about their experiences supporting Iron Maiden and life on the road.
The second interview comes from a cave in deepest Metal-Land and is with Nottingham’s finest metal parody outfit, Evil Scarecrow. Sam is joined by Mick ‘the beard’ Staley to talk to the hilarious duo that are Brother Pain & Dr Hell from the band. They explain how their stage costumes came in to existence and their plans for 2012. We have distilled nearly an hour of insane rambling down to just 15 minutes of insane rambling.
The final interview this week is another backstage visit to the dressing rooms at Rock City to meet up with JD and the FDCs straight after coming off-stage. Sam and Kev talk to Jamie Derelict, Joey Strange and Dazmondo from the band. In a detailed and passionate interview, the lads talk about the music scene past and present and offer an interesting insight in to the business following a long journey that has seen them come together after years playing in various bands. Plus a few tinnies are opened along the way.
