Transcript of the Show[INTRO]
What you want? Whatta you want from us? This is what we’re gonna do, Rock on, rock on, with Fastway to kick us off.
Fastway – Rock On
My name is Pariah Burke, and I’m your hard talking, heavy drinking, hairball of a horny hedonist host.
Thank you for joining me on Hard, Heavy & Hair Show number 299. We’re only one show away from the big 300th episode celebration, that that doesn’t mean this show isn’t huge!
Coming up, is my interview with George Lynch, the guitarist and chief song writer of Dokken, Lynch Mob, the End Machine, and more. George and I are going to talk about the new End Machine album, exactly why it sounds more like Dokken, having to replace long-time drummer Wild Mick Brown, the metric of Gross National Happiness, how billionaires should be considered immoral in America.
Plus I’ve got new music for you from the Butcher Babies, Bloody Hammers, Black Spiders, and Seventh Crystal, as well as old favorites from Danger Danger, Metallica, Dokken, Warrant, the Black Crowes, and more, like this one from AC/DC, ’cause “You Shook Me All Night Long.”
AC/DC – You Shook Me All Night Long
Maverick – Bells of Stygian
Maverick and “Bells of Stygian.”
This is Megadeth, “Go to Hell.”
Megadeth – Go To Hell
Mammoth WVH, the Black Crowes, and new Seventh Crystal is next.
Welcome to the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show, your weekly dose of Hard Rock, Metal, and Hair Bands from the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 20-teens, and today, including the latest new releases, your old favorites, and deep cuts and rare hair.
This segment of the show is sponsored by the band Silo, a genre-bending group of musical bandits blending Heavy Metal licks and Hard Rock melodies with Country lyrics. Silo is so outlaw, the band members don’t even have last names–seriously–but what they do have is music that wears ass-kicking shit-kickers. Check them out online at Silo–S-I-L-O–dot band. You’ll thank me. You really, really will.
You’ll also thank me for this new track from Mammoth WVH, which, unless you’ve been falling down drunk for six months, you know is the band of Eddie Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen. This is their newest, “Don’t Back Down.”
Mammoth WVH – Don’t Back Down
Seventh Crystal – When We Were Young
New track from Seventh Crystal, that was “When We Were Young.”
Ready for your first Cover Song of the Week clue? Remember: the first one is always the hardest.
The original artist has been featured before on the Cover Song of the Week for a song that revealed that Brenda Lee was not the woman the song’s protagonist was driving toward despite the wave in the air and the radio playin’ some forgotten song.
No, the Cover Song of the Week is not “Radar Love.” It’s that band’s other big hit. What song is that?
I’ll give you one more hint. It has something to do with this movie.[Clip – Bourne Identity]
Think about that. More, and easier, clues later.
Let’s slow things down with the Black Crowes. “She Talks to Angels.”
Black Crowes, The – She Talks to Angels
Shaman’s Harvest – Dragonfly
“Dragonfly” by Shaman’s Harvest, a band I first got turned onto while being turned on by one of my favorite strippers in the champagne lounge.
Don’t go anywhere! More brand new music, and my interview with the one, the only, the legendary guitarist George Lynch, is right after the minor inconvenience of the this short commercial break.
Some big stuff is right after Warrant from 1992’s Dog Eat Dog record. This is “Bonfire.”
Warrant – Bonfire
How about your second Cover Song of the Week clue?
The artist performing the Cover Song of the Week in a new release is effectively a one-man-band, though he does have a frequent collaborator. From the Transylvania County in North Carolina, singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Anders Manga is the main member of this band whose name I’m not going to tell you–yet. His frequent keyboardist and co-producer has only one name–Devallia. Together they jump genres from Doom Metal to Psychedelic Rock, Hard Rock to Pagan Gothic Rock. And they do it a LOT. They’ve already released two albums in 2021, and they average three a year since their signing to Napalm Records in 2012
Think about it.
This next song was written by George Lynch and Jeff Pilson, a songwriting duo that have been together, off and on, since the mid-80s. And they’re still together in their latest (of many) projects called The End Machine. I recently had a great, but far too brief conversation with half that duo, living legend guitar god and deep thinker George Lynch. Have a listen t o this song, “Dream Warriors,” especially, to the guitar work on this Dokken hit, and then I’ll introduce you to George Lynch.
Dokken – Dream Warriors
I couple of days ago I spoke to the guitarist and co-writer of that song, someone I found to be a very interesting, learned, and humble conversationalist, George Lynch.[Interview Seg1 – George Lynch]
More of my interview with George Lynch of the end Machine, Dokken, and Lynch Mob about the new album and more right after a brief break for station identification.
Welcome back to more of my interview with George Lynch, one of the most prolific, successful, and influential Hard Rock and Metal guitarists of all time. In this segment we talk more about the new the end Machine album, exactly why it sounds more like Dokken, having to replace long-time drummer Wild Mick Brown, the metric of Gross National Happiness, how billionaires should be considered immoral in America.[Interview Seg2 – George Lynch]
I really did enjoy talking to George Lynch, and I plan on calling him again soon. But I want you to tell me whether you want to hear that longer conversation. Reach out to me on social media, on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, MeWe, and VK @PariahRocks, and on Facebook at the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show, and tell me: Do you want to hear George Lynch and me talking in a longer interview, or should I keep the recording off next time I hang out with George?
Seriously. Let me know.
And, if you’d like to see the video of the interview you just heard–along with an additional 12 minutes that couldn’t fit in this show–visit the Hard, Heavy & Hair YouTube channel at YouTube.com slash PariahRocks .
This is one of the songs George was talking about. From the brand new The End Machine Phase 2 album out April 9th, this is “Blood & Money.”
The End Machine – Blood and Money
There’s still plenty more Hard, Heavy & Hair Show coming up, including the Cover Song of the Week, new Butcher Babies and Black Spiders, and old favorites from Danger Danger and the Sleeze Beez. Keep your fingers, toes, and, ugh, other appendages off the dial.
This is the newest from Smith/Kotzen, “I Wanna Stay.”
Smith/Kotzen – I Wanna Stay
Metallica – The Unforgiven
If you need another beer, you got just enough time to get to the fridge and back. Hurry! More Hard, Heavy & Hair next!
I’m Pariah Burke. This is Hard, Heavy & Hair. And sometimes, Rock N’ Roll is “Stranger Than Paradise.” Like when you can win yourself a brand new guitar from a Hardcore Country Metal band named Silo. Nope. This is not a joke. You can win yourself an ESP Guitars EC 256 with a mahogany body and LH-150 humbucking pickups from the Hardcore Country band Silo just by entering at silo dot band slash git, G-I-T. That’s S-I-L-O dot B-A-N-D slash G-I-T . Give the band your email address for an instant entry to win this sweet six-string from the band Silo.
That black body beauty is “Stranger Than Paradise,” just like the Sleeze Beez.
Sleeze Beez – Stranger Than Paradise
This is new Butcher Babies, “Last Dance”. Crank it up!
Butcher Babies – Last Dance
Let me ask you: Do you like Jason Bourne? Have you read the books, seen the movies, or both? I’ve done both. I like Robert Ludlum, the original author of the Jason Bourne series. Ludlum’s books are very, very different than the Bourne films. Which is often the case, right? The Cover Song of the Week was inspired by the original Bourne Identity novel, though for most of my life, I thought the song was about the Vietnam War. There’s even a line I misunderstood in the chorus.
I heard this: “This place is a madhouse / feels like Vietnam” but that’s not the correct line. Here’s the full chorus, as written:
Help I’m steppin’ into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon’s been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I’ve gone too far?
What song is that? You know it, man. I know you do. That’s the Cover Song of the Week original and new cover. You’ll hear both versions, next.[COW]
What classic Hard Rock song was inspired by the Bourne Identity–the original Robert Ludlum novel? Do you know? It’s the OTHER hit by the band that gave the world “Radar Love.” Right. The original recording artist is Golden Earring, which would make the Cover Song of the Week “Twilight Zone.” It’s performed this week in a new single from the all-but-one-man-band known as Bloody Hammers. This is the Cover Song of the Week, followed immediately by the Golden Earring original, on Hard, Heavy & Hair.
Bloody Hammers – Twilight Zone
Golden Earring – Twilight Zone
That was “Twilight Zone”, the Hard, Heavy & Hair Cover Song of the Week. That was the original version by Golden Earring following the new cover by some-time Hard Rock band, some-time Doom Metal, Gothic Rock, Pagan Rock, Occult Rock, and Psychedelic Rock artist, Bloody Hammer.
Here’s something brand new from Black Spiders. It’s “Rock and Roll”–which, of course it is, I mean this is Hard, Heavy & Hair. But that’s also the song title: “Rock and Roll” on your favorite weekly Rock and Roll show.
Black Spiders – Rock and Roll
