Not all. But it seems like it's a good number of black people with their hand out begging somebody for something while other people are getting it done. These people from Mexico and South America, they come to America with nothing. They ain't asking for nothing. They're not protesting Mexicans get shot in the head by the police they ain't protesting nothing. They out there working. They got 5 or 6 people living one half. I'm not saying all of them.

A Fun Fact About 'Dragonslayers' Author Larry Schweikart?
"Show. Larry Schweikart, author of dragon slayer 6 presidents and their war with the swamp, Larry, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. How you doing, Charlie? Yeah, those are the glory days when I had a 130,000 Twitter followers. Those were the glory days and forget the followers, the wisdom you had was extraordinary. I got to tell you, you were spot on. You predicted Florida going landslide for Trump before anybody else. You were on top of that thing. You really were. So first, just tell our audience about your background, and then I want to talk about your book, which I find to be super interesting. Sure. Well, I'm a native arizonian and I went to Arizona state university and got a degree in political science, which I found totally useless. And then I joined a rock band had been playing rock and roll all my time through college and high school. And we went on the road and opened for groups like steppenwolf and Savoy Brown and tried a couple of records that didn't go anywhere. It was interesting. Somebody brought up today the who, we played the troubadour, which is the place that broke Elton John and we had one set on a Monday night and the who came in just after we started our set and stayed through the whole set and when we got done, they walked off like slapped me on the back Pete Townsend slapped me on the back and goes way good show walk.

What Is the State of the FBI and DOJ Today?
"Back with the one and only Victoria Townsend and Joe de Genoa. Okay, let us ask the big questions. You know me, not like you, but I have had a long history with the FBI working with their agents, their Intel analysts to help them understand the threat of jihadi terrorism. And I was very proud of all the work I did driving the country going from R 8 to RA field office to field office. Now, if the FBI knocked on my door, I'd say talk to my lawyers. I don't wear those pins. I was given various field offices anymore. My coin collection of FBI coins is in a dusty draw somewhere. Can you give us your reckoning of the state of the bureau and the DoJ today and is it salvageable Joe? Well, I think that the decay started under Comey and it has continued. There has been no ability to apologize to the American people and to its victims. People have to remember this, though. The FBI does not act on its own. It acts at the direction of the Department of Justice. They did that under Obama. They subverted the Justice Department under Trump and worked with Democrats in the Justice Department divisions to the attorney generals at the time. And it has continued under Merrick Garland, so there is unlikely to be any change in the behavior of the FBI and the best example is what they've done to all the recent search warrants which have been issued for conservative organizations and people which are completely unjustified. I mean, it sounds like you're crazy when you say that. But these raids which have been conducted using search warrants instead of subpoenas, especially on news organizations. And lawyers and lawyers is just absolutely outrageous, but the FBI doesn't do that on their own. They do that at the instruction of the Department of

Let's qualify that. I think skiers might know who I am. You're plenty of skiers that don't. I'm fine with that. There's a lot of skiers that don't pay attention to professional skiing. But yeah, Cody towns in a professional skier for a really long time now. I mean, I've been sponsored by Solomon for 22 years at this point. Yeah. Really, since I was 16 and as a ski racer, but then actually a professional free skier for less than that, more like 17 years. Holy shit. Are you bored of it yet? No, and that's why I think the great thing about skiing. That's why I think it's like just one of the most magical sports in the world is that you can kind of continually challenge yourself or continually adapt to a new faction of the sport or learn something new about it. I mean, I feel like I'm in my second or third career as a skier, you know, going from an Alpine ski racer, chasing dreams of trying to be on the U.S. ski team and the Olympics and downhill ski racing all that to then being a free skier to now more of like what most people call ski mountaineer. So it's like I'm 38 years or 36 years in on being a skier and I still feel like I'm learning and I still feel like there's more to go and more like creativity to express in the sport. So that's what's really cool about it. Yeah, I've been bored at times, and that's what leads me to switch up and try something different. Yeah. Yeah, I think you've evolved more than anybody that I can think of. I mean, it's just even with something as simple seemingly simple as the 50 project, right? People look at it now. It's kind of starting to be established and you're at 10 million views overall or whatever you just tweeted out the other day. It's so insane to me that you're just you're moving on to the next thing. You're always doing something new. And I asked you right before we hit record, like, how do you keep your head on straight? And your answer was you don't. And I think that's something maybe people aren't aware of is that you just kind of live in a constant state of doing things. Yeah, pretty much. Like, I would say like my personality is I'm a bit obsessive about things and I get bored easily..

"Me caller forgot to mention meteor. Man thompson has done so much. Shit like he's run the gamut and honestly carmena hip hopper is one of my favorites. He was one of those guys in the nineties. He wrote and directed and starred in meteor man. Which was a flop. I feel like it was a box office flop but also i feel like everyone i knew that on. Vhs definitely a being over time. Even though it was a bad movie it's like it's a supermarket like very like millennial childhood movies that were very like what was it will be gobert where it's like theodore rex. I mean half of those movies that came out when we were little didn't do well but then kids who were time are like got my favorite movie of all time exactly. They had their biggest successes on like vhs and you know nbc in the morning on a saturday right like how many times did i watch bap simply because it was on comedy central like six times a day for my entire junior high experience directed by skies father but back to sky. She is nepotism and now she is on black lady sketch show. Which is we always talk about each bill in this podcast but yet another. Hbo smash robert and quinta brunson member. Quinta brunson who did bussey videos which is iconic because she successfully parlayed videos into actual television. So she's not the only one. I think buzzfeed people have become successful. But she's fully like a tv show to nbc or something like has like e suray like ease array went from like a shuttle know broad city youtube youtube to tv. This this a rare jump you know but she did it from buzzfeed video even which is surprising. More surprising that youtube to tv i think buzzfeed to tv is like a true right a true flex right but anyway. Sky is now on the second season leading sketch show and she is absolutely killing at. It is hilarious and she can sing. She's a truly a triple threat. I didn't know about her. Until i was googling around. I realized that. I did know about her and i had seen many videos of her because she has this like iconic viral impression of beyond. Say that she's been doing for a long time. And these videos were everywhere and still remain honestly everywhere. She best since memory and yet she does the best impression of beyond save ever seen in my whole life and you have to play it. Would you set me the beyond say impression. Last night i was like oh my god. That's why i really recognize her. Those were so iconic bright it like gives you shivers so funny and also you know beyond say seeing them not because they went viral because literally her father is robert townsend and like beyond say worked with him. I was very hesitant to drop politician because so many people have never been in a limo. Would they get it. I'll never forget when blue met the president obama. Say how blue she said ga in a falsetto. I will never forget the first time. I fired somebody in this show. She says she sang lead. I say bitch were so many people have never been in a limo. Yeah it's so good and it's not even the impression it's the topic it's like the writing of the impression too. That is so good. I just loved that. She's also like a singer as well so she did this. Sketch on blackley. Sketch show this season. Because she wasn't in the first season it involves her singing. She has to pretend to be this like realistic musical star while also being funny which i feel like is very scary. Haley bennett in song.

"Am so tired and twitter. Moments is being twitter moments. And only show i mean people reacting instead of what actually happened. So can you please tell me what's going on with alli camper and is it even worth knowing. Okay crunch crunch tim. Tebow lesbian godspeed. Bella hadid it's actually very worth knowing. I would say because sometimes trending topics can be extremely not worth knowing like. Let's just take a look at the current trending topics and me. Are they worth knowing or an outside. The i carly revival trailer is here. Fans are living for its grownup edge. I'm sorry. I watched that trailer if grown up like i don't know much mayor of east down and tell me that seems chrome. Okay woody harrelson's dad killed a us district. Judge forty two years ago in texas. It remains the crime of one knows that move on Man returns bob dylan album to library hyphen. Forty eight years overdue. Okay now we can't have another no. We can't have another like viral old. No old person story now and then. We have to just single celebrity name. Trends one is ricky martin and the others hugh jackman. Okay moving on yet. None this none of this. I'm calling on your right earlier this week. One of the trending topics was. I didn't see this but a friend was telling me that the trending topic was literally ellie kemper and the kkk. Not just ellie kemper but fully ellie kemper in the cake gad factcheck. She's not never has been but she was part of a extremely racist organization in her hometown of saint louis where she grew up as one of the wealthiest people in the midwest and it honestly drew out all of the like local historians to kind of like try to like put into context without de escalating. The fact that yes com hampers from a very saint-louis family and yes ellie. Kemper did participate in this like beauty. Pageant that has like super racist origins but ellie kemper is not in the kkk. Nor does this organization have anything to do with the gay gay gay. They just wore these weird Robes that made everybody uncomfortable. You know that's like our cl- obviously inspired by klansmen ropes. There's this great Kind of thread. That one that was written by sarah mole. Daf ski at multi museum. Ed and she was like it was called the veiled prophet. Its changed names. If you times this like this group this basically society group in st louis. She said so. The veiled prophet is a major institutions. Saint louis rooted deeply a troubling past to call. Kkk princess isn't wrong but also not right. So it's like. I think she's basically like i'm not trying to downplay the fact that this is like the weirdest institution and like very old and like pretty racist but it's not the kkk. So i don't know how is that. That's pretty much what people were trying to say. It's like okay. Elliott was queen of another racist ball. But at this point. We're just splitting racist hairs where we don't even say what it was. It was like when ellie kemper was whatever however many years old. She was fully a student at princeton like she knew better which i think makes this rates like she left town to go to princeton and then came back was and then came back which is one of the weirdest out. Yeah right yes. Ellie kemper has not spoken about this yet. And i think she's probably going to though i wouldn't be surprised if she didn't but i think it's reaching a point where like her name is so fucked up now like her name toxic now and everyone's literally calling her racist like she needs to. I think she's i think she's going to say something because if anything it's like if you're rich enough to hire crisis pr. You know what. I mean so well. There's also a lot of misinformation that she could clear up like she say you know. Hey like i don't love that. My family was involved with this organization. That clearly has racist roots. But i'm not in the k. k. k. You know like that would actually be a very helpful thing to say or just say. I'm sorry that i participated than this one is an adult. This is really shameful part of my past. I'm very embarrassed that i did this. And the fact that she's not saying that i think makes her look worse right. What's really interesting about. This is that this isn't like someone dug up this photo like it was the jumanji box and i'm the beaten been out for years right. These voters have been upper years. He's been public knowledge. That came from an extremely extremely extremely extremely wealthy family from the midwest. Like even the photo her at as the veiled prophet queen has been part of public record for years and years and years and yet because of this reddish shows the power of the viral tweet. That was something. Like i think the viral tweet that did it was. I'm gonna i'm gonna misquoted to paraphrase it. It was like it's twitter language. It's like so we're just not going to talk about the fact that like ellie kemper was the queen of some racist bald in saint louis ram when she was nineteen years old and then people like hold on a minute. Is this true or not because when you see a tweet you have to be like true or not and when you look into it you very quickly find out that it's true but also like there's nuance there literally. That's why we have twitter threads that are you know throughout our land. That's like because you literally can't explain something in that few characters. So apparently there's like ball was held in saint louis for all these wealthy people and it was super segregated of course and in the late sixties and early seventies there were these like activist groups including percy green and they demonstrated outside of the ball and even got into. The ball crashed the ball which is fascinating to me. They were like you're racist. Fucked up they did let jews and they didn't let people in like day crowned their own profit queen who instead of being called the queen of love and beauty they crowned clean of human justice and so literally and then that three women three whiteman got into the ball and one of them lowered herself down from a balcony by cable and ran onstage to unmask the veiled prophet and it was the ceo of monta santo. santa monica. Monsanto crazy is that everyone like the powers that be kept it secret..

Who's next by the who august fourteenth nineteen seventy-one ten years before i was born but i am familiar with the album Fifth studio album like liu said it developed from the aborted life house projects which was going to be a rock opera to follow tommy which. I'm sort of glad they didn't do that. Because then have another is really silly movie that i can't sit there but they did salvage some of the songs for the next album. Eight of the nine songs from lighthouse for featured on this album The one that was not was my wife that was written by john entwistle It's heavy on the use of synthesizer Especially for songs won't get fooled again and babo riley.

It was reissued on cd several times with additional songs originally intended for life house.

That's why i have a coach myself and have people to to help me see that t because it's harder to by us know impossible to but it ryan bahati by can be hard and it's an interesting sort of. I'm not sure what the right word is. Irony symbiotic something. I don't know. But it's like i really think all of us have the answer somewhere inside us. It's just that finding them and then giving them enough credit because they came from us right. They didn't come from or come from. You know the big book that says this is how it should be done. So it's much harder to say. Really i can. I can do that. you know. That's where working with. Somebody else can be really really helpful because you know i can hear when i talked to somebody that little thing that they just said that they're they're saying it but they're not hearing it and they're not paying any attention to it. You're going wait. Wait go go go back there. Yes you just said this thing. That might unlock everything else. Yes and they're never gonna hear it on their own but somebody else it you know. Yeah we we all do that. Yeah and like in particular. Because i'm interested in what can with women and looking at the unique challenges that they have in entrepreneurship and listening to that experience of what about actually is an you his his so many women give the gift an just destroys. Throw away what is actually where. Hey and and how they delivered that the win they have. So you know if you ask somebody we whoa. Whoa well. this week. I tell you what went well and how she to to get that win. What helped you achieve at. He no oh cheese day all day when he gave me the idea or anything. That's not actually somebody else. May and i had to make a snap decision and i found it was really good at that. I just pulled out the bag and it took seconds and it meant that we just got it done quickly and was happy about it and that came from me me any anything to avoid that. Yeah and you know as you're saying thinking you're you're giving all your power away when you do that. Yes and i think women have been so trained to give our power away habsi but it's really hard to say. Wait a minute. I did that thing that came from me. I deserve credit for that and we all have trouble giving ourselves credit to but women somewhat more than others probably everyone more than average white guys seem to have no trouble and all giving themselves lots of credit for that. They didn't even do any woman who's ever sat in a meeting and offered an idea those when the guy takes it. But yeah you know mean we given all the power away. And there's there's something about. I think women are afraid of power like we're afraid that it's going to make these horrible people who are are all the time when actually you know if if we recognize our power and owner power it means we can run with it and we can do the things we wanna do if we give it away. Then we're just sitting here going. Oh one didn't really have anything to do with that. And i don't know what to do now and i don't know how to do this thing. Yeah and actually like going back to what you said earlier about. The doesn't doesn't knowing everything. Bring a lot of pressure situation You can really start to see how actually one of the things i've learned. Oh since i've been doing that since i've been touching really is saying oh actually in my situation probably my privilege got me That's interesting that's nothing to do with could be. I could have been doing anything that day and at the end it probably was my privilege that got me there. Yeah That's that's interesting. How i have the compensations and noticing that and yeah and the same of my house. So i'm i i am really healthy person and By physically mentally and sometimes the difference between me getting some went somebody else. Noughts is state of health and the privilege have and how i'm able to leverage that the conversation stops to deepen. I'm rich in and the judgment starts to dissipate and i wanna say like it's. It's not that you know the idea that that you brought. That ended up being a success wasn't your idea and that you don't do your credit for the idea. But it's certainly possible that you're privileged. Put you in a position where you were better able to make that happen. Yeah yes yeah. Yes and suddenly the shades of grey to start to to multiply even more the sense of what i'm in control of in control right it.

You can't have the fear and the curiosity at the same time you know. It's going to be some kind of give in that and is a folk is a false sense of security at yes You know it's it's a voice which is telling you that things will be better if if you are in control of them and if you and if you knew the outcomes the actually the evidence suggests that's not true yeah Yeah i feel like you know. It's it's a cultural voice. He asked me 'cause most of us have. It are lucky dome but most of us go. Yeah definitely. I think it's definitely voices to having done a lo fee and big emotions The the most common nations. I come across in. My whack is fair and guilt and shame and and i think that that said that those types of emotions in fear response says we will have them because they're hardwired for them And i think they can express themselves three Or voice. And i. It's the inner critic while i refer to as that's hell that gets expressed It's really good at mosque itself. And covering itself off and hiding out with other people. It's also really good linking into those cultural messages that we have although social messages But it's just a voice It just that so many of us a used to hearing it so frequently and loudly. We forget there's any other option right eight rethinking our voice. Yeah and that's what i saw. The is i that bout was me. Founding not creative. I caught myself academic instead. That was my mom and there was a voice. The the looked for any sign to crave that yes. I definitely wasn't not And it was based in in big emotions you know and worry and favor and making mistakes and not looking like somebody else and so i got parison to your sister yeah Comparison is an evil evil beast. It's a real tricky. Keep off by Hotel pick around around vehement critique a judgment voice decides sides. Yeah yeah and we end we so often come you know. We just know even good at comparing us out to the right people in knife. I don't compare myself to somebody who's six months ahead of me in life. I compare myself to oprah every day like if you were gonna do that logic irrationally and do something that you would compare you. Were lying yourself and much more in a much more clear way but Yeah you would and you would also you know. There's there's a quote. I'm not even going to try to get totally right and i don't remember who said it but you know don't compare your behind the scenes to everybody else's highlight reels kind of like when you were saying earlier about everything that goes on behind the show before it goes up that the audience doesn't see him you know. That's it's sort of like the kirby how the sausage is made you now. I mean not that backstage at a theater show is as ugly as that. But you know it's still a part they don't see they don't see how many times the lead screwed up the same line and was convinced they were never ever gonna get it right and they were gonna fall flat on their face on stage you. They don't see the number of times that the prop fell over they. They have no clue now. By opening night lord willin everything goes the way it's supposed to go and it's beautiful and it all comes together in the magic happens. They don't see all of that stuff that went on and we all have our behind the scenes we all have our insecurities and our fears and our failed attempts all of these things. And if you're just looking at oprah i guarantee you oprah has insecurities and attempts and all sorts of stuff that you don't see. Yeah yeah absolutely. And anyone else like her. Yeah yeah yeah. We think that's reality and that's how it should be an that's crazy. Yes yeah sadly. I definitely to older fat.

I really how of those nevada experience. Yeah yeah. I don't know do you guys have because i know a it's a streaming thing so i have no idea how it works over on your side of the pond but there's a tv series. That i've been watching called. Ted lasso have you it. I didn't 'cause it. It's you know the old fish out of water trope and and it's this. This woman who has has become the owner of a football team near london. I think after a divorce a very contentious divorce and because it was so near and dear to her husband's heart she is determined to destroy it in any way she passively can so she hires a an american football coach from kansas. Who i am not even sure. Now what what level i mean. It's not like he. Was you know an nfl level coach it was you know college level at best to come and be the coach of this team for sport that he does not know and she's just convinced that he's an idiot and he will admirably performed the task for which he does not know he has been hired. And there's there's a great moment where he embarrasses the snooty ex husband who's beautifully played by anthony head and he makes a comment in the process. About how you know people who think they know everything tend to think that that means that they are perfectly suited to judge everyone else and because they think they know everything. They aren't curious because if they were curious they would ask questions rather than making assumptions and he's totally using the assumptions that he knows that mr snooty has against him at. Its is a stunning moment. And i don't want to say anything more than that. Because i don't wanna spoil anybody who hasn't seen it but it really made an impression obvious that that same thing 'cause i think judgment is so tied into fear 'cause judging ourselves and it's also tied into that that sounds i think he's totally right. You know you think you know everything is a really good. You don't know everything you don't none of us know everything you know. We may have enough experience to make a pretty good educated guess but we could still be wrong he added absolutely and i think that that's not for me really makes me think about that.

It doesn't mean. I'm an expert on everybody else's children you all the experts out the parents and then you might not quite as expert as you think you will. You'd light to be especially depending on how old they are. Yeah it's like clay is play and just think. Oh god what a pressure to know everything as well as a lot of salona pressure to on yourself which completely ties in with that judgment. Because you've just got another big stick to beat yourself refund whereas when you when you don't know some saying it just lightens. I mean maybe if you're a brain surgeon nice something about s- initiate and in general life just not knowing something opening up it just it lightens. Everything does and it comes back to what you were saying before about being comfortable with being uncomfortable. But i think that's where just as we're having this conversation seeing. That's that's where the parents of the three year old wants you to have all the answers because they're like i don't know what i'm doing and they're terrified that they're gonna ruin their kid that you know whatever and i mean certainly people do things that end up having long term effects that happens to everybody everybody asks grew something up But but it's also just like it's it's the fear it's the the discomfort and and i think we just feel like if we knew everything then everything would be.

She was confident and she signed and she acted and people he was initially extroverted and people just warmed to ha- instant day and she did all she did drama. She was even good at sports to very annoying to have as a imagined and also like my dad was creative in an the most obvious way i could see that as a kid and that he sang t so hit him and my sister shared this love of singing and had a confidence to data in front of other people and i had none of that so i i firmly came up with the idea.

A Conversation About The Postal Service
"Low. Welcome. To another edition of call us, Bruce unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America. I'm Phil You and Jeff Yang and this week on the podcast we have been thinking and talking about doing something for a while and our wishes are finally coming true as if delivered to us. Our. I'm sorry we've come. A Dad jokes attention but we we've been talking a lot about the postal service, not just amongst ourselves but in society right I mean the relevance of the US mail to our society internal democracy has been more prominent now more than the headlines now than ever before, and one of the things that we recognized is that the postal service actually plays a really critical role even. Specifically in our communities and there are. There are a lot of Asian Americans who work at the Post Office The post office connects us are far-flung relatives and friends, and in general we just thought it was time to give a little shine to this institution that. Is taking a few bumps, these days, and so we actually found. A postal. Service employees who was. Happy to talk to us about this profession and about the stories and. The world behind the scenes at the post. Office. As, well, as other things going on his life as well. So we love to welcome to they call us Bruce Kevin Again UN. He is a musician and multimedia. A graphic designer, a fan of A. Pretty Amazing Music. I can tell social platforms and also a employee of the PS Kevin Welcome to the show. Hi. Welcome guys. Ola. So Kevin you're in Oakland right. Yeah. I wouldn't opened. And did you reborn in scripture? I was actually born in southern California and. Always, knew that I would end up in the bay area. So sometime around two thousand and two, thousand five moved up here. And I found myself. Here. To sort of blend in. Oh Yeah Oh. Yeah. And and you say you're from southern California originally like a like Los Angeles or or. Montebello okay. And now A. End, up actually working for the postal service. Honestly. I was laid off in rather time the pandemic. was. Gaining momentum. and. I was desperately looking for work and I I had heard this echoing my head, my mom's voice. You know like you should go work work at the post office like your uncles grandfather. Finally listen to the voice. And Sure Enough I. went onto the USPS site. And, saw their openings locally and swint for and they ask for references. Internal references and. Plugged in some family members names, and I was pretty much and within twenty four hours. In the family. It's a family business. It really is. Yeah. How many of your other family members worked for the postal service that are alive to? But. But it's it's been like kind of multigenerational thing or it has absolutely. Is there. Is there something about the post office or the Postal Service that has been? particularly. Peeling I'm guessing in some ways it's because it's eighth always there be. It. You know like they're always jobs in the postal. I. I just Kinda remember Hollywood shuffle under if you've seen that movie Robert Townsend movie. where? Kind of what you're saying is one of the themes in the movie that. His family's like A. Get A job. The Postal Service it's it's you know it's it's a secure job. You know it's comfortable. It's something which you can rely on and Robert Townsend characters like I wanna be a star in Hollywood but you know as a black actor in Hollywood. You gotta deal with a whole lot of bullshit and movies about the bullshit and. Kind of like you know no spoilers or yes boilers. Movement. You haven't seen it. You should see it but. In the end in the end, actually the post service ends up being a where he lands and and you know he's it's sort of like a celebration affected like you can still do when you dream of but other things can also be part of that dream and anyway I'm kind of curious if if that's kind of the story of how how like your uncles and other folks in working for the post office to. For my grandfather. I believe he went in right after he was discharged from the military e- so he. He had served in the Cold War came back They relocated to Daly City from Dallas. and. I think he that's it hired pretty much on the spot. And it's still the case to this day So he he was there until I moved up here. And two, hundred five. I remember him getting village. One Am and coming home. And afternoon. He. Yeah it's interesting my Uncle Sam deal with him in Minneapolis. He got out of the Air Force and became a carrier pretty much immediately. And my uncle Kennedy in. Hawaii. I think he started in Minneapolis, but then transferred to Hawaii, which is apparently. The most requested transfer. Why And he's been a mechanic for. Sixty years. He's he's been there for a long time I. Think he's been here the longest. Everyone fixing like postal trucks, postal trucks, the machinery he's he's really handy guy i. mean he used to build birdhouses? Similar skills I guess.
Heavy Metal? Not Us.
"All right. I had to actually check that I hadn't done an episode on this before. Because it's a perfect episode, the kind of thing that I thought I would have done early on So this is episode four. We're going to call this heavy metal, not us. Okay, so the idea here is. We're going to be talking about the concept of bans that aren't particularly heavy metal bands that, for some reason, end up making amazing, amazing heavy metal when they get to it and possibly why that might happen you know the idea to do this I've always thought this concept and debated it with a lot of people, but I was actually on earlier today on Pete Pardo's sea of tranquility, and we were doing a deep cut dive on bluest her cult, and it kind of rambled around to this this topic. And he said this was a great example of that and I was thinking, is it a great example of that is definitely an example of that. But I, but I kind of got to thinking that bluish are cult complicated case, but there are other bands that are even better examples of this so I thought. That will be my next episode. So this is how this came about now I, want to give you a little history on this idea, so you know essentially we're not. We're not here to to debate bands like For example there are bands throughout heavy metal, history, or whatever rock history that don't consider themselves. Heavy metal bands that do a lot of heavy metal. Classic example is when Lemme gets up there alive and says we're motorhead. We play rock and roll right. Little More Lemme later maybe but also black Sabbath talk. We're blues, Band and deep purple you know, says various things you know where we're at Jan, were progressive, rock band. We're jazz, rock band, red jazz band whatever whatever sort of floats their boat, but they usually don't say we're a heavy metal band. Now more in of these examples later on, but to go right back to the beginning. You know it's interesting that this concept you know. Mike, my good friend, Ralph Chapman. We always have these debates over Banger, or we did when we were there in these meetings to put together these shows and stuff where where it's always like the Beatles did everything I well so. Here's an example of this happening so in a way. Helter skelter is an example of kind of doing this I and I interviewed Paul McCartney back for my Queen Book Awhile Ago. And after we were done talking about queen you know I. I asked him a few other things and We were talking about helter skelter, and this is what he told me. I think that heavy metal came out of a desire to rock into rock, big and dirty and loud, and for that you don't have to have rules you talk about what made us do. Helter skelter desire to rock, dirty and loud, and when I listened to it now I think Oh. Gosh I thought it was louder dirtier than that? Because Times have changed, but I think it's just that if you're in a rock and roll band, and your soul is anchored in the Sea of rock and roll and you want to do it, you WanNa participate to your fullest. Fullest and sometimes that means being dirty. Being loud guitar are famous for turning up to eleven, and that's very understandable. Desire I. Mean I still now when I get with my band. We're at a soundcheck just strapping on my electric guitar, kicking it a pedal tearing it up. That's the spirit that kind of goes through rock and roll. You know it's a thrill anyone who has ever owned an electric guitar and put it through. An amp knows that thrill so I think that's where it all came from the desire to just thrash out. That's why we did helter skelter. Now. This doesn't include kind of the back story about Pete Townsend, saying you know where the loudest heaviest band in the world and Paul McCartney's natural. You know competitive nature to to compete with with the WHO and a and this is kind of this narrative. That they were trying to out heavy. The WHO so here's a band who's not a heavy metal band by any stretch of imagination. Just saying right, you want heavy metal. Let's let's give you some heavy metal I seem to recall I might have talked about this in another episode, but but excuse me in that pursuit, because some of these bands that we're gonNA. Talk about here. I have talked about another APSOS, but I'm going to be talking about specific specific to this concept. So, hopefully we'll be a You know a different dynamic when we're talking about these bands now. One other quote before we get to our first one, this one even more infocus a puts together this concept, so this is from Scott. Gorham from thin. Lizzy and I've always loved this quote. and we're GONNA include thin. Lizzy later on, but we'RE NOT GONNA. Do this song in honor of. Basically Scott Gorman thin, lizzy. We're going to include thin lizzy, but they fit perfectly anyway so. We were talking about Angel of death, which is which is a a very heavy metal song on the renegade album from nineteen eighty-one. He says yeah, absolutely bub-bubba calling weather sucks. We never We never ever put ourselves in the medal stakes. We always consider ourselves hard rock band, which to me just entails a little bit more in the songwriting side, rather than just heavy metal guitar riffs going constantly through all the songs, but yeah, we did not want to go down the metal road to us. The metal thing and I don't mean this any. Any disrespect to any of the guys, but it seemed a little corny to us, so we tried to avoid that side of it, and plus we knew that there were a lot of guys out there. That did that kind of John, well, but it was just one of those tracks where we recorded it. Listen back to it and for a time there. It wasn't one of our favorites. But yeah if anybody actually called. US, heavy metal, we would actually jump all over them, and the correction would start there, you know. We considered ourselves in absolute hard rock band, but definitely not a metal band the difference between the two genres. Band, it all depends on the riff drum groove in the guitar riff, whereas with hard rock, it's all about the groove and the lyrics and the melody the song and that's why we went out of her way to explain that we are a heavy metal or are. We are a rock band. And then fill linnet, said That's one of the facets of You know what I was just told Interesting side note by one of the listeners I always said Phil Line it for years and years and years, and then I was corrected, and said Phil Lynnette for years and years and years, and now I've been corrected again with a little bit of proof that it is in fact, fill line at Because he says that Phil used to say when he was correcting people, he would say line it. Why not? So there you
