We got Brent Smith from shine down on this episode. We got David Coverdale from white snake on this episode and also Josh Todd from Buckcherry on this episode which is often. So first we are gonna get to Brent Smith. Now when I recorded this interview just a few days ago we had not announced the local tour date. And now it's official WA AF presents God's smack in shine down. That show is that the X energy center on Saturday August 25 eating get all the ticket information at WA AF dot com. But in the interview you'll hear that he did. One a drop the bomb on not when the show was gonna because it hadn't been officially announced yet. But I've known Brad Smith and the guys from shined down for a really really long time. They were just a brand new band out of Jacksonville back in the day. I think I was still on the air night back then. And when they had just gotten started. And I blocked a little bit about this interview and what I said was. What when I saw these guys live and when I heard their record the first time while these guys are really go then I'm Adam knows how these guys are really nice. And then I saw them play acoustic. In my studio. During my show and I was like holy crap these guys are talented. And it's been and what fifteen years or something since then I mean this. The most notable recording which we talk about the podcast is the acoustic version of Leonard's innards classic simple man. And really the first time I ever played at a public for anyone was on my show and. It's still to this day in massive hit for them. And we're abandon Jacksonville Florida where Skinner is from you're really nervous about. Being perceived as as not respect. I pulled to the legends that are Leonard Skinner and since then. You know just so much is. So much has happened with the band and they've just become so huge and it's so awesome to see how successful they've become. And way back in the day Brent Smith promised me that if they ever got nominated for Grammy that you would take me two grammys it hasn't happened yet but I'm holding them to. So here we go this is Brent Smith from shine down. And it's a animated what's gone on anyhow Mario. I'm I'm stuck to talk to you haven't heard a short tournament and I know I haven't talked to infer we've been very busy exercising on is to Graham. I do exercise and I do you have an insecure put those together and it's just the recipe for success. Keep us. It's 100% keep me honest Al Arab backed up over a little bit because that started like look at my personal and Graham. And see what I was posting and I'm like. I think there might be turning into reduced ban. So I I didn't stop I stop posting I was kind of like asked me to go to call it up all but. Well Fred it's a shined down and obviously when you guys around on the road and you do and a ton oppressed we all know what you wrapped him. But social media kind of lets just behind the curtain a little bit when you guys take time off. And you can't just a little bit and just go to relax in between albums and tourists. We were well like slipping to a unique it is that to that particular record at least started recording it last year in January. By. We didn't really take any time off because. We did seven different where we normally we get down auditory cycle on and now when that will take the next year. To make a record but we're so used to kind of like being in a cave the entire I said for that particular album. I think listing of shows. Like wow or make him a record just to get some perspective as an earlier question I early stop. I just you know I've done different things in regard to scheduling but I mean I would Eric. 179 days last year. Tom beat does that mean him produced the record I mean literally he produced the Al many mixed it but I was whipping him. Every step of the way. And then back and Berry came in like in the middle of all the writing process and then we started to do that but yeah I mean last year we. We opened up for Iron Maiden which soared in July budget that's all and mayor record same about. Well you kind of walked into it that's why I asked the question because. You haven't stopped touring not wish I am but they would hear acoustic project so I was gonna read you Intel did take a vacation. Well I mean I just. I think I'm just really excited about what we are doing and organ trade and in the world and I hope rooted received well. Com but you know I don't do good you've only a long time I don't really do you do it sitting spill. And we don't have us do that Tyler friends. 100 then let's talk about this record that you're talking about it's called attention attention and it comes out on May fourth and we got the first taste. The news sun devil that we've been playing and is this the tie the record tell me about this album. So little are one thing that's different about this album is that we dealt produced that we've been very lucky over the years to work a lot of great. Engineers male and team now. And an outstanding producers so we've all ecstatic that our eyes and ears open. In our career when it comes the studio. Time and what have you. But it was time for Eric to to take control of it. I'll let one of the new things about the record it's different than all the other ones we've done and we felt produced it and there actually a bit. It isn't a concept record in the traditional sense of content record what you think like the wall backing or your operation mind crime actually directory Khatami. About a group but it is an album that we have kind of a the way we look at it is it's a story album and dabble is the first single is the beginning of this story. Com and it does play through. I and it does tell a story from one song to the next there's the beginning of the middle and there's a finale there's really an ending to the record because we're not really good with Dubai has. But this is definitely a psychological and emotional journey hole record takes place side of a room. And we want to listener to do. Put themselves. In this chair and and that is through men and looked at themselves. Not only. From a personal standpoint and how they can navigate the world there but. It's really a record about not being afraid to fail because it's gonna happen and I mean that's that's part of being alive you know you're gonna split. Sometimes but you can't just be paralyzed into the corner of your own minding your own self doubt. Not attempting to go after certain things that you wanna do like the did you think you not be good you may be ready you're going to bail. I don't think could people be defined by their failure I think will be just fine but the fact they did you. While most successful people will say that they grew the most after a failure yeah. Our present you know if you hit it didn't make it's not interesting to win all the time. You know you've got to have something to strive for. Tell me about it on the patriots fan. I narrow. But but but. Can I tell you how much I love the fact that when you're talking about great concept albums that you put operation mind crime in your list. It. One of one of the most advanced. Like from a story plaque like a stool from the story platform. That record it and just you know it took it. Yeah I mean I I I cannot. There's so many cool things about that record I can get flustered when I talk about it I don't like apple and ramble on about it it's so well that record. It's one of my favorite albums like one of those albums that you have on the deserted island that's on my list yet but at rapid paperwork. I'm going down memory lane with that with a lot of my friends in music recently because next month and is my twentieth anniversary on the air WA out. Congratulations. Are all look down at you we EUR one of those people that I wanted to talk about. Because when I think back of the last forty years. I have so many. Fond memories and a lot of mom have you guys.

Well but you've always been really really comfortable in your own skin. And in the moment I met you you've just always had just an amazing energy and it is they're really really rat human being all the where Tom oaks. You know those are all growing. Experiences and that process or anything but I mean I think back. Yeah like we first met each other I mean one of the most substantial thing than our bands history happened right there you know which you. And that building. You know when you know the whole story of why there's this simple man tribute song Vermont it was all really. Born because of the fact that we did it right there at every area so there's a lot of you know batter and of itself is a big deal. I believe that was fourteen years ago. Yeah it's been a minute now we you know what I think we both look better and we did fourteen years ago I agree. Yeah you regretted I got. I gotta I don't know what happened yet it and I'm not gonna try not on the bears. The cop. But I had to. Oh like a picture.

In the future and and you've always been there you know you're one of the biggest order and not just from you know that the political side of Spain in regards it. You know the record company in how we do you know it is called the music business buries its always been unbelievably genuine.

A couple of ordering cycle of the last like three years we never ever did I'd pay off inbox and we went eight Austin we don't aggregate day at all. Embossed and somehow the work that out. I just to judge Todd from Buckcherry about this very thing the other day because everything story is so exciting and you know all of this sight seeing in all just a few would you appear on vacation. When you according bay and you're so busy all the time that you never really get a chance to just go out have any fun in town. So I don't your top of your priorities when you come Metallica's we need and now go do something fun. Absolutely it today on every level I mean the thing about that to his. You know what I know what I signed up for and you know sometimes I'm a lot better at it now that night I used to beat Google got on they opt. For me. Because of my voice and what have you got while you are chosen week. Com you know I can't talk all the time. So a lot of times my days off are like in the hotel the pearl lob which always in the you're in the hotel and they're not paying him and what have you so I I'd make it I'm. I eight. I really try to think of this city in these countries that were and more than I used to back in the day it's good result. We're talk about your voice in. Obviously trying to take care of it with the touring cycle the way that you guys do it Roger adultery was just lecturing a bunch of fans at a concert the other day. Yelling at people who Wear earplugs because of how Daffy is now. Have you taken a lot of steps to take Sherri your hearing and your voice. Because of people like Brian Johnson from AC DC you're Roger adultery being so vocal about the struggles that they have later in their career. Well I mean I don't know much about Iraqi adultery and them the issue that. Is. You know beat the years. Stemmed from not music but it was actually the all of the race cars over the years that he. Race in the motors could never wore earplugs during that time. Tom funny odd not funny but yeah. Astoria at all recently about him is that they had finally candidate bella and in air for him that that he actually there were the doctor bock. That added that he was working wit that was putting together a different in their system for him but for me personally. Yeah there are things that I do. I I mandatory. Every. Very much. No matter where I am. Logos CE NT and I won't have my a I'll have local courts look at this see where you know where there at. You years ago I had a little bit scared and I had at the nodule on Bartlett Opel court. I'm I was able to heal it naturally. But and oh wait you really feel it naturally is to not use it so I had to be quiet for about two weeks. Yeah forget. He's and they were my hearing it. I always try to make sure that I you know at least every six months I'll I'll go to and cardiologist in DC where everything that so far knock on wood. Everything is is helping yen is good ago but it. If you tick over like a long period as a target visible you know you don't wanna go years without getting a physical. So Tom it's just you just gotta make time to check those things my voice in my body is you know my answer so. You've got to be aware of it at all. Well that's what I need to spend more time Boston because it bright and Johnson's ear doctor and a Dell and Steven Tyler's vocal cord darker both in Boston. Can aussies tremor doctor Eric. I think maybe you should just moved here that's just my theory. Can change how we view for a little while until I find a place if I'm gonna like to have a little bit kernel mayors and then match. And hang our view he likened to five under. Are you are you asked to move in Britain I mean I just as the league yet they do it like it embodies aipac today. We got to go browse around the house is that the reality show waiting to happen. I man it. Did you love you know you're more than welcome you don't even have to I would take router situation. You need to worry about it on the door. On the tour bus pulls open cul-de-sac. Totally it'll pull up and gravel layer of the meet you like that you know really really not our Q okay now I got there. But then it. But before you go to you how many touring news did continued drop any. Any any info on us about what's when you're going to be and how. I don't have made it specific overview on an like Boston proper. I think anybody that kind of think it'll look and media right now note that in July we're gonna go on tour what are really good friends. Got smacked that we've not been on forward since 2006. On the order to tour ban that com we actually it Louis right now getting ready for pre production beginning at all org cycle. That start on the nineteenth of this month but I don't have any news yet about Boston proper but I I can't believe that it's gonna take too much longer. Burress to get them first predicted date in the. Area yeah I work very hard crawling and will be. I find it very hard to believe that you guys to be touring with god smack in Boston would be on the top of the list for the tour. You know line. I mean we just want to make sure that we we serve everybody that we and that is a day audiences but awesome mate given a platform so lax. Yet volley drop in December last year.

Buick Open release schedule with each other in Macon something really unique for the fans and really focusing on the show.

Really gonna do you know they wanted to heavier record in apple we'd done. And they wanted some then you know we've really really listen to the audience may have. Specific things for this record I think that we accomplish that. And I think it's the best work that we down in an over a decade and we're very very proud and honored. Two lobbyists but to bring it to everybody and we didn't look forward didn't have bought some see as we Canon dropped. You know brought down what everybody.

All right so so far I mean it's great podcast episode episode eighteen got Brad Smith from shined down David Coverdale from white snake. And we have a lot of crazy weather in Boston over the last few weeks and some unbelievable. Blizzards and so much snow and wind and flooding in. It's been crazy. And smack dab in the middle of that the guys from black cherry came to Kingston on masks at canyons and even though we are getting a nor'easter. I went down of the show to go and hang out with down and got a chance to sit backstage with Josh Todd in catch up with him. And once again I've known Josh a really long time and and we talked about. You know coming up together we talked about some fun times we had in Tehran now at live aid. Talked about the ban talked about what he does during his time off for lack thereof. I mean I think there's a theme with three guys on this podcast that none of them know how to relax. Brent Smith from shine down's always busy David Coverdale is always busy and Josh Todd from Buckcherry is always busy these guys are workaholics by. They love what they do and you can tell just by how they talk about it so to finish up this episode of the podcast this is Josh Todd from Buckcherry. It's. What's how hot you know along I now really great to see you it's nice to see to the great actually yeah you look Hannity you have very. Had time in a moment. Have a lot of reflection and united them a lot of inner work him in good. California lifestyle like going back in on plugging in to speed channel. Well a lot of us here in and I don't understand that I don't really chill I mean I'm I'm true workaholic but I've I've had to. Really put some balance back in my life because it was so lopsided you know it's really affecting. Everything lives. But now effectively creative Japan's it's been long. Hours have fun. I love talking to two guys in bands about their kids. Because there's so many people that think you guys are these rock gods and you go home and your kids are like you know that's my dad like he's not cool and they don't sit did you have time to just do dad stuff my kids and you know like hearing me you vocal skills right. You go outside like it. Yeah like I do. Sun flag football right now he's he's nine games. Are you gonna turn until like snoop. And like be the coach and staff Rahm funding the team is at that time I would really like it is going to be fun Tom. Yeah the time but I'm always still coming here to work. He's done really good and in Miami my other daughter she's she got the lead youngest coach to lead in this way Peter Pan or schools so. That's been really great you know and Conan and tape in Europe from her song gonna watch that and follow and it's like a really big production. That's cool little had to go drama archives because next month is my twentieth anniversary on the area. Wow is that crazy not so I started going back through all my archives pictures in. You know old tapes and recordings and stuff and I started finding all of these pictures of things that. You and I have done together he had an all of the time that we've known each other over the years. And one of the things that I literally was going through today was the pictures from lighting up in Toronto ways back in the day crazy. And I look at those pictures now and unlike. Okay. It's run DMC and Aerosmith and Buckcherry and cars via. Put they put a band together yeah private jet and took over Canada. It was crazy because. Actually Steven Tyler is supposed to do my job and he had gotten sick and they called me like last minute I'm like yeah and got around on a little private jet with those guys balloon that was like incredible weave through from college it's Ron Allen. And any you know the coolest part about. Trip was. Com. We did we get errors show where we did walk this way and now. You know with with. Run DMC and we did and then we're backstage in the promoters like. And do you guys messing with Leo Leo wants him to come onstage. Yes and it and so. I went up there and everybody was stand behind Neil young and I'm like is anybody gonna get on my website is locked up and starts with them and I'm like looking he's got like DC through blue eyes and I'm. And Mike singing and his tie as it whereas they have and like dynamic is amazing. And then now we got the picture of us in and poster and of the son Thomas on the next it was awesome. There were two things about that trip that stood out for me big time wine. Was that you hadn't released crazy bitch yet it was still it demo and yes laid it for me when we were in traffic on the bus. Aren't present you've got to hear this song this is going to be or news on that went in which you think. Now and I was like god this is going to be my teams on for the rest of my life. And then the other thing here and play after the rehearsals the night before the shallow. We went out for dinner do you remember that so we're in downtown Toronto and we were looking for ways to go eat. And it was me and you and a couple other people Ian was there and we go out and none of the restaurants and bars had anybody in. And it was like a ghost town like a zombie movie Ryan and they were all these people wandering around on badges on that nobody was going in any of the restaurants and generally how whistles and Alec please is Google is please empty. So finally were so hungry said screw we're just gonna go when we bellied up to the bar. In this totally empty place I really do why is every. Bar in Toronto empty right now like lighting it's happening tomorrow and he goes has its. International AA convention this week. And we really oh I should have known if it weren't the only people there is so we just went in there and ate dinner we gave the bartender this ridiculous step. As we felt so bad that nobody was in there eating and drinking that night. Yeah and that is thirteen years ago. I know so many shows like when I think about like. This shows and the travel and like the sentences of Bullard you know I would I mean I just literally would be on auto pilot. During that time where. It was it was tough fight thought about it too much I would get really convinced that you know just because. I'd I'd. There was no life going on you know like write all my friends kind of just fell by the wayside just became my band in my crew. And my family you know known as you know that keep on. Our side are always like can't wait for the band come back to town acutely the band come back to town. And everybody thinks the touring side of his so glamorous and it's it's fun and it's you're dreaming you love it yes. There is there is some really great part yes what you are away from home 23456. Months at a time yes and your life at home I would think that the only other people that would really kind of understand what that's like is. Is someone in the military. That goes away for long periods of time and then pastor re acclimate and adjust. Is it going back and down shifting back into your regular life when you get hall. I really genetics explain it's my wife because we've had a lot of struggles. Because of the lifestyle and I try to tell Leo I'm an in two different lives you know and it's it's taken a tone in I'm getting right. You know it's tough. I don't know how to tell you but it's a lot of solitude. You know. And she's accordingly and I go well. You know you have very little time when you're actually right with everybody on stage and that partisan very fulfilling but then it's like. The other you know twenty hours of the day only hours of the day we year in your hotel room. In about us you know. You're you're good you know normally easy man myself and and and listen I don't wanna complain because I have I really enjoy being myself and problem. You know. I've read I'm totally all right you're not complaining it's justice yet again what the what it's like yeah but it's lake after awhile you start on K. I gotta have some kind of Q in connection there and I mean. And it's always. You know here you're going all of these great places but you're always inside concrete buildings it's not like you're out sightseeing on vacation and now. That tempo and living out of a suitcase and you never have your favorite pillow in. The laundry detergents never the same almost had little creature comforts that all of us get so used to. Are something that you and then once you get home it's got to take you weeks to kinda get back into. The routine of just being home. Yet and it's very weird I have like I'm very. I have like obsessive compulsive. Kind of issues you know so like I never. I always leave an open suitcase in my closet like it's always got some clothes ready to go it's always because I am always easing and I'd I'd put it away at this thing that's always tell. We're expecting zombie apocalypse and you just leave it there. It's your bug out smash it and which it says that he's not extend the the Fisher the professions are obviously different you know comparing you to a soldier or something like that but. But I can see how the re integration part of that the down shifting of going from. One side of the spectrum of a life to something completely different yes would be difficult and when you're in a band especially with huge year on the road. With Buckcherry. Your solos conflict and yell like you're you're constantly out doing all of this stuff and you know it seems like you're always here now and so when are you home he muscles move to Boston bash. He'd been home a lot you know like like last year we we did like 2.5 some. Butchers shows. And we did like seven weeks of conflict so now lives asylum for me yeah island them. I've been on the lot and and this year has been this can be pretty light and now we're here now we've we've been writing a lot for the new Buckcherry record and they're excited. And we'll probably not put about cherry record alto. 2019 at the beginning. But we're ramping up her you know you know we've even talked about possibly dropping a single in the summer you know that might be fun but we we don't know. We're we're gonna a lot of things. It's been really cool to kind of go back through and think about all the shadows. And it's you know all the crazy times and looking back through all the pictures. Yes because you know a twenty year block for me it's like can't believe in it when the first buchert not 2002 known 1999. 99 yet so. It's nineteen years for you to know yet. And we were touring right. We're doing a residency and member on the East Coast and nineties so it's you know we do stuff. So it's kind of like we came up to yeah it's very weird pages and now is to be still sitting here all these years later it's goods and yes it's very cool. In this business hasn't US opens this which is which is good right. We got them we got problems aren't. And then you know of course you come back to town and we got a giant nor'easter outside that's always the case where hunkered down here tonight so we could lose power there could be like natural disaster outside Buckcherry always brings it whether it seems like and we always. Perseverance and how amazing shows us well I'm looking forward to it tonight having fun Kia.
