While I was out X-massing the shit out of some holidays, the best-prepared interviewer in the land Mark Strigl posted our all-Van Halen interview episode of his Podcast, Talking Metal.
Like the blurb says, “In this Van Halen special, author and Sirius satellite radio DJ Ian Christe joins Mark Strigl in the studio to discuss his book Everybody Wants Some: The Van Halen Saga. Topics include Indiana, the early days, Quiet Riot, Bill Gazzari, Gene Simmons, Top Jimmy, the Eat’ Em and Smile album, the best songs with Sammy Hagar, the current tour, and the future of Van Halen.”

(And congratulations to Mark and co-grinder John Ostronomy for getting Talking Metal picked up by Fuse, cable’s last outpost for music.)
