Featured Guest is where I interview cool people I have crossed paths with from artists to musicians, actors and more. This week we had a special, very rare interview with one of the greatest musicians to ever rock the mic: Toronto born and NYC bred, by way of the Florida, the great singer and author Alex Mitchell. Alex has fronted the pioneer swamp rock band Circus of Power since 1988, had a few kick ass bands like Plastic Gator Machine and others and also written a few books. I have always thought Alex was a world class frontman, blues singer and more. I always loved this band and it's been a gift to be in contact with Alex. Circus of Power has a big audience and their music is still being cranked up loud by many. Living in California and getting ready to launch a new wave of the band’s music, I did this interview with Alex where we talk about his life, new film project, writing and music. - G

Featured Guest is where I interview cool people I have crossed paths with from musicians to actors, artists and more. Today I am having a pow wow with Ollie Stygall. Ollie is the singer/guitarist behind the band Grifter , one of the coolest  hard rock bands around these days. Ollie’s a great dude with a no nonsense attitude and big drive for cranking out some high power rock n roll. Grifter have a new release out and we caught up to talk about all kinds of cool stuff. Check out this interview with the main man Mr.Stygall as we connect from a burning hot Carolina evening to a night in the UK.  From seeing Queen at Mercury’s last concert to talking about the virtues of French cinema and mutual interest in ancient history it was a pleasure to do this interview. Ollie is one cool guy. - G

Featured Guest is where I interview cool people I have crossed paths with from musicians to actors, artists and more. Today we spoke with none other than the great Gary Isom, a legendary dude in doom metal. Gary is a mighty drummer, guitarist and all around musician. Many know Gary from his work in bands like Spirit Caravan and Pentagram, Iron Man, Unorthodox, Wretched, King Valley, and others. Gary is a great dude and has always has been very cool to me. I've always enjoyed conversing with him about music and life. A stand up dude with a true love for music and especially in the world of metal. Really awesome to talk to him today and run down some quick questions on rock and roll, music and keeping the gift alive for the world.

'Featured Guest' is where I interview artists, musicians, and cool people I have known or somehow crossed paths with over the years. Today we talked to the great Al “Yeti Bones” from the group Gypsy Chief Goliath. Al is well known in the music scenes in Canada and the USA and a guy I’m proud to call a friend. Everybody that knows Al has a lot of respect for him. He’s a highly regarded man in underground rock. Last year Al asked me to sing on a song called “Heavy is the Name of My Soul” on his solo recording entitled “Audiobiography”. It was really great and I was honored to be asked and collaborate with him on such a great song. I caught up with Al and we talked about his history, music and a little about his love for MMA, UFC, Boxing and other subjects. - G
