NEWS: Billy Sheehan interviewed on Talking Metal

The latest Talking Metal podcast(episode 261) includes a great interview with Billy Sheehan about Yamaha Attitude basses, the Mr. Big reunion, his solo album Holy Cow, collaborating with guys like Terry Bozzio, Tony MacAlpine and Bumblefoot (not together – imagine what an awesome band that would be) and those rumours that David Lee Roth tried to reunite his classic Eat ‘Em And Smile band a few years ago.

I only discovered Talking Metal a few months ago (I kinda avoided listening to podcasts for the longest time because I knew that I’d find it addictive once I started) but it’s essential listening. Check it out! Recent episodes have included awesome interviews with Duff McKagen and drummer Richard Christy.

NEWS: I Heart Guitar mentioned on Talking Metal

So this morning I was riding the tram to work and listening to episode 257 of the Talking Metal podcast by John Ostronomy and Mark Strigl – I had a few weeks’ worth to catch up on cos I was on holidays for a few weeks and my morning commute is usually my iPod time – and after a great interview with the very eloquent Duff McKagen, they read out an email I sent them a few weeks ago, and they mentioned my site. I didn’t expect them to read out the email on the air (although I’m not gonna lie to ya, I made sure to include site information just in case), and it was a very nice little surprise to start my morning.

My apologies to the lady sitting next to me on the tram, who was probably wondering why I suddenly started grinning like a doofus.

It’s been a good couple of weeks for I Heart Guitar publicity, what with the mention in the May 2009 edition of Premier Guitar and my guest post on the Jemsite blog. So it’s at this point that I’d like to get all gushy and thank everyone so so much for their support, including my fellow guitar bloggers (you can show them some love too by checking out the blog links to the right).
