Ryan Leonardo reunites with Craig for the first time in a long time to discuss what many consider Iron Maiden’s albums recorded during their best years: The Number Of The Beast, Piece Of Mind, Powerslave, Somewhere In Time, and Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son. Weaved around these appreciations for the band and their music are stories about discovering these albums together as kids, the quest to find all of the Eddie artwork possible and some more childhood memories. Recorded in front of an audience as one as Ryan’s girlfriend Karen joins in here and there to try to keep things above board (things are not kept above board).
Phil Collen of Def Leppard and Delta Deep joins Eric in conversation to discuss his early days of discovering the blues via British classic and hard rock, his early connections to the guys in Iron Maiden, first joining Def Leppard during the making of Pyromania, writing for Hysteria, how the loss of Steve Clark affected him personally when working on Adrenalize, how the band looks back at some of these records in terms of production, his work with the blues band Delta Deep, Def Leppard releasing their catalog on the streaming sites and what tracks does he think deserve a second look, hitting the road with Joe Satriani personally and Journey with Def Leppard in 2018, his thoughts on producing the upcoming Tesla record, how far along the new Def Leppard studio album is and what’s next.
God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more Death. Neither sorrow, nor crying. Neither shall there be any more brain; for the former things are passed away. Join Pods & Sods and very special guest Andrew Kiss for a look at the album, the artwork, and the stories behind the songs as they discuss Iron Maiden’s Piece Of Mind.
