Gary Cherone of Extreme joins Eric in conversation to discuss his early days discovering his voice, stage presence and songwriting, the evolution from Extreme’s self-title debut through to the epic III Sides To Every Story and beyond. Also a lot of his solo efforts from Tribe of Judah, Hurtsmile and Cherone. Memories of Concert for Life and performing Queen’s Love of My Life at Rock In Rio, the Pornograffiti 25 CD and documentary DVD set, what’s the new Extreme record looking like and much more.
Billy Sheehan of The Winery Dogs joins Eric in conversation. We talk about his earliest years of playing bass and his influences. We talk about his offer to join Van Halen in the very early 80s, his years with David Lee Roth, the successes and pressures with Mr Big, and his relationships with his Winery Dogs bandmates, Richie Kotzen and Mike Portnoy. And we focus quite a bit on their new record, Hot Streak.
