APPEARANCE ON 'BIG ROCK TALK‘ WITH RYAN ROXIE OF ALICE COOPER!

I was recently on BIG ROCK TALK, a podcast hosted by Ryan Roxie, one of the guitarists of Alice Cooper!

One of my first live shows was in 1986 watching Gilby Clarke and Ryan in their previous band, Candy, so we had plenty to chat about.

Also appearing on the show was bassist, Chuck Garric of Alice Cooper and Beasto Blanco!
