  1. The Royal Basement Podcast #3: Chris Murphy of SLOAN — The Royal Basement

    If there is any contemporary band who has turned me on my head in terms of what a pop song can be, it's Sloan. When loud guitars and screamin' dudes were all the rage in the early 90's, the band turned their back on that sound and went back in time, carving their own path by tastefully borrowing from the 60's and 70's while forming their own sound. Comprised of four different songwriters, Sloan is a complex and multi-faceted creature that has spent the last 23 years redefining the classic pop canon, making some absolutely crucial classic recordings in the process. I was lucky enough to get to chat with Chris Murphy about his beginnings, inspiration, songwriting and gear selection process, as well as having him pick out a mini-DJ set for the podcast. Put your ears on a Q&A with Chris Murphy of Sloan.

  2. Dad Story, Ep. 3 (Podcast): Twins and first-time father Arn Albertini - First Time Father Project

    As fathers, so much of our lives revolve around gradual changes that help us adjust on the fly. For today’s Dad Story subject, there was nothing gradual about his first trip to the delivery room.

    In that instant, Arn Albertini went from being a father of none to a father or twin boys. And while the world at large certainly seems to be welcoming more twins than it used to, such a perception does nothing to prepare the parents of those multiple births.

    For Arn, whose boys are now 7 months old, the transition has been completely …

  5. No Guitar Is Safe - Episode 5 — Billy Sheehan

    Bassists aren't usually invited onto No Guitar Is Safe, but in the case of Billy Sheehan, an exception must be made. Why? Because Sheehan's amazing stories of playing with Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, David Lee Roth, Billy Gibbons, and other rock heroes are priceless, and his playing (which you'll hear throughout the episode) is über-inspiring. Hear Sheehan and guitar ace Richie Kotzen in action on the new Winery Dogs album, Hot Streak, due out this October.
