Rank #3: #075 (Pt. 1) Jesse Leach (Live Interview)

Podcast cover
Read more

Today is World Mental Health Day, which seems like the perfect time to share the Live Q&A that I did with Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach in Birmingham back in August. Jesse is a true spokesman for mental health issues and I relished the opportunity to expand on the podcast we did together (Jesse was a guest back on Episode 005 of Life In The Stocks) in front of a live audience and do our bit to help spread the dialogue around mental health. He's someone I deeply admire and respect, and I hope anyone who suffers from mental health issues will get something positive and helpful from our conversation together. Stay strong and spread the love. You are not alone. Matt x

Rank #6: #052 Joe Cardamone (The Icarus Line/Solo)

Podcast cover
Read more

This week's guest on Life In The Stocks is solo artist & performer Joe Cardamone, formerly of The Icarus Line. The topic of death comes up a lot, from the death of David Bowie and the effect that his passing had on the musical community to the passing of Scott Weiland (Joe was actually on the tour that Weiland died on) and the tragic death of Joe's longtime friend & collaborator Alvin DeGuzman, which was still fresh on Joe's mind at this point. It's heavy duty stuff, but also very inspiring. Thank you to Joe for sharing his story.

To celebrate the first milestone (10 shows) in the lifespan of Life In The Stocks, Matt welcomes on to this week's show one of his all-time heroes: John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, from the Sex Pistols & Public Image Ltd. John's a complicated, contradictory and controversial figure, but he's also (as this conversation will hopefully prove) an intelligent, sensitive and caring human being - not to mention one of the most unique artists & songwriters the UK has ever produced. Never mind the bollocks, here's John Lydon...

Joey C's in the house! Joey's been a dream guest of Matt's for a while now, and he doesn't do a lot of interviews, so it's an honour to have him on Life In The Stocks. Not only is Joey one of the coolest human beings you'll ever meet, he's also an absolute beast of a drummer and has played with everyone from Danzig & Queens Of The Stone Age to The Bronx, Zakk Sabbath and beyond. We covered as much as we could in this interview, but Joey will definitely be back for a Part Two when Matt heads out on tour with Zakk Sabbath in February.

Ginger Wildheart has been a dream guest here on Life In The Stocks ever since the podcast launched in 2017 and it was an absolute pleasure and and honour to finally get him on the show. It's an intense episode this week, but hopefully an uplifting and inspiring one as well. The main thread of the conversation is mental health, suicide and depression, which obviously aren't easy topics to discuss, so thank you to Ginger for being so open and vulnerable and for sharing his struggles - hopefully anyone who suffers with mental health issues can take something positive away from this one.
