Ages Of Rock Podcast

Welcome to the Ages of Rock Podcast! We are three guys who have a one thing in common... a love of Rock and Roll. In particular we have an affinity for a band you may have heard of... KISS. Bill and Dennis had this dream of doing a podcast about our love of Rock and Roll. At a Judas Priest show in 2014 Bill introduced Dennis to Allen and we teased the idea of doing a podcast. Allen has done a podcast before and so the Ages of Rock Podcast is now a reality. Our goal is to talk about all things rock not just KISS... We hope you find us intriguing, funny, and occasionally highly opinionated.
