Nashville Rock N Pod Expo

Saturday, Aug 26 marked the 1st podcast expo of its kind dedicated to all things hard rock. Headed by Chris Czynszak and Aaron Camaro of 'cast Decibel Geek. The expo featured Q&A from record producers, artists, and fellow podcasters alike, including Talking Metal (pictured) and The Great Albums.  Panel discussion followed with Walter Egan, and Gunnar Nelson discussing high's and low's of their career, in which Gunnar summed up rather well with a quote from his father who once said "a career is a series of comebacks." A handful of vendors selling their used vinyl collections were also on hand to round out the Nashville RocknPod Expo. Next year... Glambone panel?

GB MARCH 2017 - Charlie Overbey

Charlie Overbey and I go way back. We
met when I was doing the magazine in my
early teens, although it was his former band
mate Keri Kelli that I first befriended, it wasn't
long after meeting the singer when we would
start to hang out quite a bit. Tracking down all
you can eat sushi buffets, or hitting up shops
on Melrose, and countless after show parties,
Charlie was always one of the coolest cats
in Hollywood to hang with.
So why didn't I tell him all these years that
I'm the guy behind Glambone? Why did Sean
Penn fuck with his brother Michael Douglas in
The Game by nearly driving him to jump off the
top of a building for his birthday present?
After a couple decades, I probably ran into
Charlie once or twice. But it wasn't until a few
weeks ago, earlier this year when I actually had
him on the phone for a proper catch up.
I was pleased to learn about the forthcoming
record. It's a collection of songs Charlie says
is his most mature and accomplished writing
to date. A preview I heard of the track "Slip
Away" features vocals from my friend and wonderful
songstress Miranda Lee Richards. Songs like
this is something Charlie pictured himself doing
when he's sixty. But the time felt right for it now,
instead of fighting it. As Charlie said, "some people
have said this record sounds like Nick Cave in
Nashville in the 70's, some people have said it
sounds like early Steve Earl, and some people said
it sounds like Charlie Overbey." One can
not argue with that. The man has found his voice.
Glambone being Glambone, of course we ask him
about his days screeching in Big Bang Babies. We
also uncover the scoop on his side business Lone
Hawk Hats.

ATL Nights - Down South Playboy Playoffs

It was a rock fest in Atlanta this past weekend 1/14/17 at Star Bar. So why am I singing "at the rock fight, tonight there's gonna be a rock fight" from Cheech & Chong's Up In Smoke? It was not a battle of the bands, no - more like a celebration of bands. Billed as Down South Playboy Playoffs, of the highlights was Wyldlife from NY, emanating high energy from the get go. The band is releasing their new record this month titled "Out on Your Block." Tuk from the Biters produced it. Check out the track "Teenage Heart." You'll be glad you did.
Speaking of the man, Tuk was serving up slices of vinyl all night long, Cheap Trick, Petty, T-Rex, Plimsouls, Sweet... and on it went. He also joined the band on stage for the finale.
This is a rock n roll city. Thank you Atlanta, and goodnight.

GBJAN2017

Think of Nashville, and Country Music comes to mind, and Hot Chicken, or the TV show of the same name. It's a city that's growing fast. A city with pockets of little scenes. A number of cool music venues and record shops that you can count on one hand. So where's the cool rock 'n roll bands? Enter: The Tip. Four dudes walkin' and talkin' it, just like how they were raised, on doses of AC/DC and Aerosmith. Oh, and the singer, Benny Carl likes to fish. He's got a boat. Anthony Bourdain should've hooked up him and the band on his recent Parts Unknown episode in Nashville last year. They could've gone out on the lake, caught some, and then fried up some catfish. The Tip is real rock 'n roll, that good time stuff. Listen to this months podcast here and meet the boys. Glambone also has vinyl copies and cds of the bands new release "Sailors Grave" to give away. All you have to do is join me on Instagram or LIKE the new Glambone page on Facebook, and tell me why you like The Tip.


GIT YOU SUM!



GLAMBONE!
