You actually kinda were were. Not hiding what you were reticent with your news your locals and and and writing songs and stuff you just got it in Leipzig like. And then you finally did it. Yet that's that's true it's it's pretty accurate and I'm a perfectionist. And so I spent a lot of time you know writing a lot of songs in and throwing them on the floor you know and I mean rat race then I got to a point where I said okay this is.

I I think it it's also we're living in very strange times tonight and I have to kind of get that. Have to purge that tune yak about McCain is that as Adam is there any politics in the elements yet there is CNN it wrapped in kind of a poetic. Base and music's like one of the great original forms of artistic and creative protest I mean. You can either you can write a book if you want to leave it you know but everyone runs to their blog now or like something with 280 characters or yeah you can actually rock out in what's cool about that. Is that sounds like something. It's freshly released there but that sounds like you could have told me like that was nineteen that was 1987 or 1994 I would have bought into that as well too so slow rate retro styling is with a new sound yes and thank you very much yeah idea I have always I guess I've always had a hard time rating about. Cars and guitars and in London Brent and chicks at the beach. So I guess I got to a point mark Simone and put my might put myself on the line here.

A little Beijing it's very add a little bit tonight I don't wanna get into the whole idea of like being in something popular and just riding that wave of light. Popularity and not something superficial but then always having that voice and when you think it's time to act on well and we'll get into that and we'll get into. I don't know if you know listening but he has a wife who is as famous. My beautiful girl yet we'll talk of that.

All rights and imagine being a young man and limits to Massachusetts couple boy you see if you can recognize whose voice from your past. Who is in the studio. Yeah this will be a tough one. Moody who could possibly being loaded could think severely beat here at WAA. Half from eleventh to the lemons. Indy multiple choice. Among them have back when you're nine and eight and stuff did you say that's the word on the street now I know I'm I don't inherited that from my Cuba and I.

I could not go search liven party he's not Google eyes wrestling on our computer and a oh. Maybe want to ask it anyway and appeared that. You're kind of might shoot everything you might wanna assert that. So let me just explain what's going. For those you. Michael Devlin is friends with Ron global who's friends with Blake. So Michael donate it's a song from his new album to our colonel podcast. You also grew up Carrey in minister via these guys parting a monster land TSA yeah so it's this huge. Reunion go you. The one that's not from one answer all well. OK I don't know. But I've been in months away and now let me ask you Michael have you ever seen meetings who your experience and spooky in there spooky no but I've had I've had them multiple experiences there. But I wouldn't say that they were necessarily spooky. And I like that one time like this chick came on the health hero after he disappeared. It and. As we all grew up with our parents telling us the stories about monster land. Ray show rather than be afraid of that plays we used to have bonfires and go party out there and drink Beers we are high absolutely I think we kind of just accepted the fact that anything was possible at any time because monster land was one setting but we also ahead of the places like blood Forrest yeah. And and these other places closer row yes and yes at that girl that had a lower to them so we we're always kind of anticipating to see something real growth but he's in new England and we ran its all around the witch trials right days testing in any way altering plastic in the water yes that'll get like our brands early dad pesticides on the apples and. And the I wonder if the electric towers. Having you do it right that you guys have those power lines that run through your your town. There's a lot of reasons why yes. And I don't know I cannot live on the way out yeah we understand it and that's right we could have been bend Harris County Houston lessen your chances are again. And instead this is all an expression of our broken yeah. I'm not welcome an accent at all now advance as many of my new album an expression of my throat yeah. I pray Hancock. 617 says she's what is it six degrees of monster yeah. Ventura on my the let's just give a taste of the songs we played usually a Michael's song from his new record from the earth but I wanna play a little bit about. That's a wild buffalo wild buffalo that's right. A little bit of the song that you gave to muscle in which again is called months when you wrote for this record man. Gave to us but it was a strange synchronicity because I was that song was written. When I found out Ronnie had written a book called monster land. And I was having a really hard time finally here in a couple of spots ahead and send me the book as media would you know plagiarized some is sure but just kind of holding the book and reading through and on the ground my you know. So it was all the synchronicity as mr. young would say. There's a lot of those going on right now yeah but the the most. Access to. It will be honest our tax but that's I mean these are big songs man your writing and doing community. Marion playing what are you playing. Base obviously really comes to stuff on the no. I am not playing tunes and songs a young man by the name Russell Holtzman is the plane from New York here. It's funny 978 texting goes I thought it was Chris Cornell like your locals are are legit man they really are. Well thanks man you know. Being on the road and doing it a lot and be in employed by David Coverdale kind of helps. And it high hard operate in that area and that's the top vocal to keep up with the so I imagine that it only sharpened your vocal life if you will on a regular basis where you know he does have he has an ability to kind of polo. The best view him as he doesn't. Relent on that if he knows it. If you're sitting on something he's gonna make sure that you get your ass and do you know did you say he's difficult. In a real winners and a no no he's not because then the goal of any artist or musician whatever to get better right and sometimes you you'd you find your little comfort zone and somebody comes along and knocks you out of it and says. Now you can saying save it starts saying you know. And you also don't get you also don't go on a fourth decade. Of rocket in torrent by accident like dad's dad's a lot of hard work to stay relevant and competitive like that'd still be rock and he's a rock star to the Korman he just charmed the pants off hi Nina.
