Tony Iommi: The Epiphone Interview

Tony Iommi: The Epiphone Interview

It’s no exaggeration that Tony Iommi changed the sound of rock and roll guitar in 1970 when Black Sabbath released their debut album. Sabbath’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame biography describes the band’s pursuit of what were then unusual themes for rock–“war, social chaos, the supernatural, the afterlife, and the timeless conflict between good and evil.” …read more Their interview features questions such as: How did you like working in the studio with Rick Rubin for 13 and for […]

Few in metal have created a lasting legacy quite like Doro Pesch has. An amazing vocalist, lyricist, and all rebel even within the Metal genre, Doro is an unstoppable force that has been in love with heavy metal and her fans for decades and shows no signs of slowing down. I had the honor of interviewing Doro for Metal Life, and once again she not only gave a fantastic interview, but reaffirmed her place as the queen of heavy metal. […]

Even after the incredible amount of press that Tobi has been doing for Avantasia’s upcoming release called Ghostlights (available January 29th), he still found the energy to give a brilliant interview.

Metal Life exclusive interview with Metalix show host

Metal Life magazine reporter Karila recently interviewed Brad Lopez, host of the Metalix show on the idobi radio network.

Good times with bad ass legends…   http://testamentlegions.com

Metal Life exclusive interview with CHUCK BILLY of TESTAMENT

Metal Life exclusive interview with CHUCK BILLY of TESTAMENT

The enormity of the person you are going to interview doesn’t quite hit you sometimes until your phone rings. Then, all of a sudden, your years of experience and talent fly out the proverbial window, and you are reduced to a red faced fan girl that struggles to speak coherent, fluid sentences. I had the incredible honor of interviewing the one and only Chuck Billy, and while I may have fan-girled for a few moments, Chuck still delivered a fantastic, […]

Metal Life exclusive interview with Craig Goldy 2016

Metal Life exclusive interview with Craig Goldy 2016

“Metal lifers: they pride themselves on an eternity spent donning denim and leather, rocking out to Saxon, Dio, and Judas Priest since they were old enough to throw up the horns. Craig Goldy has not only been a dedicated veteran of metal but has prided himself on learning from the best over the years. Since his time working with Dio, Craig Goldy has toiled to become his own artist with signature tone and intuitive understanding of song structure. Now he […]
