Episode 50 – Bruce Kulick

This week, the Decibel Geek podcast hits a milestone with Episode 50 and we are thrilled to celebrate it by sharing a recent in-person conversation we had with former KISS and current Grand Funk Railroad guitarist Bruce Kulick.

Episode 48 – Whitfield Crane

Episode 48 – Whitfield Crane

It’s no secret to fans of the Decibel Geek Podcast that we, especially Aaron Camaro, have a great affinity for Ugly Kid Joe. Born out of suburbia (ie. Isla Vista, CA) in 1990, Ugly Kid Joe showed up in the middle of a power shift in the rock world with a sound that didn’t fit into the glam rock style that was on its way out nor with the dirge-like sound emanating from the grunge…

Episode 36 – M&M with Bill Hale

While we don’t typically delve deep into thrash territory on the Decibel Geek podcast, 2 bands that came out of California in the early to mid 1980’s (one formed out of necessity to battle it out with the other), are truly a part of rock royalty and are the subject of our interview/discussion this week. Metallica’s 1981 lineup that included James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Cliff Burton, and lead guitarist Dave Mustaine was a true force…
