Mistress Carrie, Josh Todd from Buckcherry, and Live 8

Digging through the MC Archives #MC20

March 9, 2018

Who needs 1.21 gigawatts to go back... I have my archives!

It seems like forever ago, actually... To be honest, I don't remember the first time we met. I just feel like I've always known Josh Todd. I mean, it's been almost 20 years for me on the air here, plus another 7 or so, hanging around begging to get into the studio before that. So, when Buckcherry came back to Boston (actually Pinz in Kingston) I sat down with Josh to talk about the old days... One of the memories that I look back at fondly, was when LIVE 8 happened in 2005. Ian Barrett and I were asked to tag along, and document the trip, rehearsals, and performance of a supergroup. Part Aerosmith, Part Run DMC, part Buckcherry, and part Cars. Along with some other friends chiming in, this journey to Toronto included a private jet, and a glass bus ride, and soe crazy Toronto traffic. On site Tom Green, Dan Akroyd, Motley Crue, and Neil Young were just a few of the celebs milling about backstage!

Here are some of the pictures from the weekend. Listen to my interview with Josh as well.
