welcome back to Foxx on the Wire I know it's been a little while since the last episode but I'm happy to be back again with a brand new episode featuring Rick Hart!
Rick's style is country with a little bit of rock n' roll mixed with some roots, blues creating a sound of his own. He's just released his new single 'This Heart' I encourage you to go and check it out it's a great tune.
It was great to catch up with Rick I've been aiming to get him on the show for a while now, and it's nice to be back on the airwaves again. More episodes coming soon - thanks for tuning in!

Welcome to a very special episode of the Podcast in which we dedicate it entirely to the 30th anniversary of Pantera's 'Vulgar Display of Power' album. An unrelenting slab of precision riffs and cathartic energy (as described by Loudwire).
I invited a good friend of mine Glenn James and fellow Pantera nut to help pay tribute to such an important album. Vulgar Display of Power is such a monster of an album there's no way I could have done this on my own - it was so much fun with Glenn we had a great time recording this episode as you will hear.
Released on Feb 25th 1992 Vulgar Display of Power still stands as the bands highest selling album and was considered as one of the most influential albums of the 90's. In 2017 Rolling Stone ranked Vulgar 10th on their list of the 100 Greatest Metal albums of all time.
Check out the video content for this episode and more at Foxx on the Wire YouTube Channel.

Please note that if myself or Glenn get any facts or anything wrong in this episode, we mean no disrespect to Pantera in any way. Chances are when watching documentaries or listening to Pantera over the years we were somewhat under the influence, much like the recording of this episode after shots of the Black Tooth Grin.
We love Pantera thank you for all the years of heavy music and memories. RIP Dime and Vinnie.

Hello my Friends, it's been a little while in between episodes. Lots has been happening over here in my world I hope yours has been healthy and well. It's a bit of a somber occasion with this episode but it's also a celebration of a life that was amazing and lived to it's fullest.
We're here today to pay tribute to the one and only, Meat Loaf. Meat Loaf passed away recently on January 20th 2022 in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
It's always hard to squeeze such a gigantic life into one podcast episode but I did my best here and I hope you learn something you didn't already know about Meat Loaf, while researching for this episode I sure did. What an amazing man who wasn't scared to strive for what he loved to do - and that was ROCK!
Thanks for listening and please share if you dig. Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback.
"It was a hot summer night and the beach was burning
There was a fog crawling over the sand
When I listen to your heart I hear the whole world turning
I see the shooting stars falling through your trembling hands".
~You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth~
A statement posted by Meat Loaf's family following his passing:
Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight surrounded by his wife Deborah, daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends.
His amazing career spanned 6 decades that saw him sell over 100 Million albums worldwide and star in over 65 movies, including “Fight Club”, “Focus”, “Rocky Horror Picture Show” and “Wayne’s World.”
“Bat Out of Hell” remains one of the top 10 selling albums of all time.
We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man.
We thank you for your understanding of our need for privacy at this time.
From his heart to your souls…don’t ever stop rocking!

Attention Guns N' Roses fans! Attention Music fans!
We have celebrated a few albums this year on this Podcast that have turned 30 and that's exactly what we are doing for episode #69.
In fact, we are celebrating TWO albums that have turned 30 as they were released on the same day September 17th 1991 - Guns N' Roses Use Your Illusion 1 & 2! That's 30 songs and over 150 minutes of kickarse (kickass) rock n' roll from the band who was once described as the most dangerous band in the world.
Check out the video version of this Podcast at Foxx on the Wire YouTube Channel.
I knew this would be quite the undertaking trying to fit everything surrounding the Use Your Illusion albums into one episode. There's a really cool Podcast I've been listening too over the past couple of years called 'Appetite for Distortion' (New York, USA) which is a Guns N' Roses flavored Podcast. I thought to myself, Brando (the host) sounds like a cool guy maybe I'll reach out to him and see if he wants to join forces and tackle this episode together. He said, yes!
So for episode #69 of Foxx on the Wire, two different Podcast's from opposite sides of the world collide. This is truly historic and I'm so glad you could join us.
Thank you for tuning in and please share if you dig!

If you are a regular listener to the show you lately you would have noticed I have been focused on celebrating the 30th anniversary of classic albums. I love my music and I've felt it's important to recognize and celebrate those albums on the Podcast. Still more album tribute episodes to come before the end of year!
This episode with Dzirè is my first in a little while focusing on a particular artist and what they are up too it was great to do this again and chat with her. Thanks to Dzirè for coming on the show please follow her on all her socials as well as Foxx on the Wire - https://linktr.ee/foxxonthewire

Good morning, good afternoon and/or good evening my friends, and welcome to episode #67 of the Foxx on the Wire Podcast!
Today one of our favorite guests Todd Burman from Nashville in the USA makes a huge return to the show to talk about and celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of our all-time favorite albums 'Temple of the Dog'. One of, if not the most important "Grunge" album. Do you agree? During this episode Todd and I go into why that is.
Check out the video version of this episode over on my Foxx on the Wire YouTube Channel.
Temple of the Dog was conceived by Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood from Mother Love Bone who died of a heroin overdose in March of 1990. The lineup included Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament (who also did the artwork for the album), Mike McCready and Matt Cameron (Soundgarden and later Pearl Jam) on drums. Eddie Vedder appeared as a guest to provide some lead and backing vocals.
Temple of the Dog was released on April 16, 1991 and initially sold 70,000 copies. By mid 1992 Grunge had already exploded. Soundgarden had released 'Badmotorfinger' and Pearl Jam blew up with their debut album 'Ten'.
I really hope you enjoy this episode if you are already a fan of this album and also if your not entirely familiar with this album I hope it makes you want to go and check it out. It holds a very special place in time and in the story of Grunge.

More coming soon, thank you for listening!

Sometimes there just aren't enough words to simply describe what something truly means to you and the impact it made on you and your life. Thankfully we have Ashley Naylor back on the show to help describe the massive impact Nirvana's 'Nevermind' album had on the world and to celebrate it's 30th Anniversary!
'Nevermind' was released on September 24th 1991 (same day as the Red Hot Chili Peppers 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik' - check out episode #65) and would go on to sell 30 million albums over the next 30 years and help change the musical landscape forever.
Tom Petty once said "Nirvana was the most significant thing since The Beatles".
But it's not just about the album sales it's about how it inspired, and still inspires so many people all over the world. Nevermind is often credited with initiating the resurgence of punk culture among teenagers and young adults of Generation X. It was also responsible in part for bringing Grunge and Alternative Rock Music to the mainstream audience.
It's an album that will go down in history as one of the greatest albums ever made. In Jan of 1992 this 3-piece band from Seattle would knock off the King of Pop Michael Jackson from the top of the album charts.
Personally I still can't put into words what this album means to me, but I hope you enjoy this tribute episode of the Podcast to Nirvana's 'Nevermind' with one of our great friends of the show, Ashley Naylor from Melbourne's rock trio EVEN. I want to thank Ash for his time.
Thank you for listening, you can check out the video version of this episode on the Foxx on the Wire YouTube channel and please subscribe!
"Oh well, whatever, never mind". RIP Kurt.

Hello my friends,
Episode #65 features our all-time favorite guest on the Podcast and the best drummer going around - Mr Luciano Alvaro!
'Looch' and I are here today to talk about the Red Hot Chili Peppers classic album 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik' which has JUST turned 30 years old!
Released on September 24th 1991 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik' is one of many massive albums that was released in 1991 and not the only one released on Sept 24th 1991. Nirvana's 'Nevermind' and Soundgarden's 'Badmotorfinger' also released on the very same day! How amazing is that.
Check out the video of this episode on my YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbh15vXwPJw
I love chatting about music with Looch and we had a ball talking about this classic album. More 1991 album breakdowns coming soon.
