Commander Cyclops in the house and bearing a large HOO-AH for all our brave men and women in the thick of it right now representing the islands far and wide, from the hell hole in Afghanistan to the almost-over duty we’re pulling in the sand pit of Iraq. A mighty mahalo from the brethren of the DL ARMY. Stand down and grab a cold one.
DL is loading up the ICBM tubes with the usual high grade material he’s known for. No surprise there. And another no surprise, but of note is the continuing caliber and variety of his guests. Get your ears on a long new interview with Steel Pulse now in the interview machine for 2011 Interviews, and hear that sit down pow wow. Very interesting stuff from one of the all time biggest names in Reggae period.This guy talks about hanging with Bob Marley and rolling numbers, rocking rolling… almost got my Kiss records out… no joke… chicken skin on the Bob stories, quoting Bob… real talkstory with this guy and was impressed how much there was to be learned and again, this is the band… one of the top names of all times in reggae.
Dave has spoken with Incubus, and added a short piece of that interview to hear in the interview machine now. More is coming it says on HPR’s site, and they have a show in August in Hawaii, so that’s the deal with them. Guy sounded very nice and into the islands.
Also on tap: Mama said knock you out! Boom. Tapping folks lights out is his game, as well as these days, fighting diabetes. Find out why Sugar Ray Leonard is also a big champ outside the ring with an interview DL did recently! Sugar Ray sounds like the softest teddy bear kicking it with DL, but after seeing him in the Fighter with Mark Wahlberg, he still looks great. Whatever he is doing, I want some, and hear about some decent areas of life, worth getting pointers from a guy like Sugar Ray. One of the greatest boxers and all around heroes, he gives a lot of himself for others, and still looks and sounds like a champ.
Sevendust rock hard and do a TON of USO gigs. These guys are all about the troops and we say HOO-AH to the Sevendust posse. In fact, the subject is dug into with DL in an interview with the man whose voice you hear belting out the ‘dust, Lajon Witherspoon. Hear an interview with them now. Take your last breath with Sevendust. Great new record. They have to come here now.
Toad the Wet Sprocket were in the area, and Dave spoke with them and did an acoustic show at HPR. Maybe next time you can get him listening to some Dio LOL. JK. Hear the interview from just a couple weeks ago.
Also Johnny Winter, and Michael Jackson guitarist Jen Batten, who also was in Jeff Beck. A very talented woman, and now Dave Lawrence has spoken to two Michael Jackson guitarists, because last year he talked with Orianthi the woman who was last with him (with the long blonde hair, and black leather outfit in his This Is It era…)
Lots of listening, check out the interview machine in the right hand column, and keep it locked on DL every weekday afternoon for your drive home on 88.1 in Honolulu, All Things Considered. By far the best afternoon show in Hawaii, which is not saying much I know, but at least I hear what is happening in the world, and the latest DL interviews and local news.
