Over the last week or so, video of Gene Simmons doing some solo shows at different conventions surfaced on Facebook and YouTube and inspired us to each come up with our ultimate Gene Simmons Solo Tour Setlists.

This week it happens that Bill is in town on business so we all decided to see how an episode recorded in Dennis' house would go. Here it is. We spend our time skimming videos that Dennis recorded to his DVR from a few recent episodes of MTV Classic's Metal Mayhem and commenting on the videos and the artists. Yeah, we know, Beavis & Butthead already did that. Anyway, let us know what you thought of the format. Please share the link to this episode with your friends and enemies.
This episode isn't really a fiasco, we just felt like calling it that. We haven't done an episode of us just chatting about random stuff in a while so we thought it was as good a time as any. Enjoy!
The Wrecking Crew is a 2008 documentary film that covers the story of the Los Angeles-based group of session musicians known as the Wrecking Crew, famed for having played on numerous hit recordings throughout the 1960s. Filmmaker and producer Denny Tedesco talks about the putting the documentary together and his highs and lows throughout the journey. One person described this movie as "musician porn" and after this interview, we would agree. This has been a long time in the making and worth every second.
Allen's wife Laura also gives her review of the Bon Jovi concert in Nashville, TN on February 18, 2017.
