Since we started doing the artist feature segment approximately two years ago it has become one of the most popular formats for this podcast. Ultimately it has provided some of the best listener feedback. Last season we featured the great Sonny Payne and the response was tremendous. We discuss the reaction from the listeners and then talk about our Jim Gordon feature from two years ago. Back when we posted the show on YouTube the Gordon episode received a tremendous amount of attention (and continues to do so presently). Since then we’ve decided to pick players that are either under the radar or tracks that are not obvious representations of the featured player.
For this season we decided to feature southern California studio and live ace, Josh Freese. Since his initial gig at Disneyland Josh has performed with acts as diverse as: Devo, A Perfect Circle, The Vandals, Kelly Clarkson, Weezer, Nine Inch Nails, Evanescence, the Offspring, Guns and Roses, the Replacements, and his current gig with, Sting. We discuss his background and then listen to several of our favorite tracks.
1. Down – Live performance with 311
2. Paranoid Android – In-studio performance with Weezer covering Radiohead
3. Pretty Young Soldier – Sting
4. It’s F*’ed Up – from Freese’s solo CD, “Since 1972”
1. Judith – A Perfect Circle
2. Haven’t Met You Yet – Michael Buble
3. Can’t Change Me – Chris Cornell
4. You Get What You Give – Brand New Immortals
