Since Doc is a respected professional in the industry and has a working relationship with most of these musicians, he gets to touch topics and ask questions that other interviewers wouldn't think of or wouldn't have the same perspective as someone who had actually been in bands or lived life on the road. It doesn't just seem like a promo or advertisement from the band's label and makes me feel closer to bands in the metal scene. Doc is a deep thinker and will expand upon ideas or topics that are discussed in the show and those discussions are often gifts. As a fellow musician, this podcast really is for us. I sincerely hope he keeps this show going for years and gets to start interviewing bands and musicians in other scenes as well. He's that good.
I used to see and hangout with Doc in Baltimore,DC and Northern Virginia (Springfield) he was always a smart well spoken guy who was always easy to get along with. So seeing as how a lot of his guest are past tour mates of his, it’s easy for him to get great conversations and stories with a lot of these guest who happen to be musicians from bands I used to listen to from band who have now broken up. Great podcast if you are into hearing the brutal truth about how much hard work the musicians have to put in on the road and to play a good show.
Doc, love the podcast. I really appreciate your grasp on current events and ensuring that you bring that into your episodes. I was also really stoked to see that you gave money to Caleb Scofield’s family as I did. Dude, could you do something with one of the VOD guys? Thanks so much and all the best to you and Boecklin with Bad Wolves, love that Boecklin dropped a Cave In reference in the inaugural episode.
My favorite of all the metal podcasts! Doc is a great interviewer. He pulls out the personal and musical stories that you don’t hear anywhere else.
I’m new podcast lover. Found a few go tos. Always wanted good one based on my line of work. Great topics, convo and flow. Docs one of the funniest dudes I’ve hung around. Check an episode out!!
Great to hear the behind the scenes stuff on my fav bands in my teenage years. Subscribe and listen to every single podcast you won’t regret it and such a good time. Thanks doc and keep up the amazing work you’re doing🤘🏾
GOOOD LAWD!!!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 this podcast, yo I love how you break the industry down and expose the things that some people don’t think twice about. Lol my little one loves this podcast too, we listen before bed😴 and she loves The Cranberries and Bad Wolves after hearing your cover!!! Thank you soooo much Doc!!!!
I listen here and there, depending on the guest but I just listened to the Brian Fair episode most recently. That’s a great dude and I could’ve listened for 2 more hours. I also checked out the Ken Susi and Brandan Schieppati episodes. You’re podcast is awesome Doc! Keep it up!
I had the good fortune of meeting Doc when he was on tour with Meytal, so I was curious to hear what he'd have to say on a regular podcast. He didn't disappoint. As an example, take a listen to his recent interview with Eric German...great insight into the music industry.
I whole heartedly enjoy this podcast series. Lots of memories from a fan perspective during this era. This podcast gives another view on the life of the musicians that brought us heavy music.....even discovered a couple bands that I have ignored for years. The Pat Sheridan episode made me a fan of Fit For an Autopsy.
This is a great podcast. Doc is authentic, funny, and seems to have an appreciation for all types of music. He’s not afraid to ask his guests tough questions and engages in thought-provoking conversation. I’m always looking forward to new episodes, regardless of whether I’m familiar with his guest.
As my best friend once said to me: “never trust someone in the music business who didn’t try to start a band first.” Doc has walked the walk as a real musician, a hard working go-getter, and a likable and personable guy, which makes him well suited to these conversations with great guests, most of whom he knows from real world experience on the road. Essential.
This podcast is great, Doc is great, any true metalhead needs to subscribe. Good stuff.
Very cool insight into the world of a working metal musician, great conversations on not only his career but the other bands and industry people who make it all happen.
Great interview with Peter Wichers, And Peter Iwers. Makes me wish I had perused my talent more than I did. Hey Doc, remember that time I let you borrow my 5150 foot switch? Hahaha. Probably not, but that’s cool! Had a blast playing with you guys back then!
Doc is amazing! Not only can the dude play great guitar, write awesome music and riffs, but he hosts a really great show (podcast)! His format, the guests and his insight give a terrific and original spin to his show!
First podcast I took the time to listen to it and love it. As a fellow metal music lover, and New Jerisan. Doc you're killing it.
If you are a metal fan or interested in the workings of the music industry. It is a inside view from someone that was in a full time touring band during the early 2000's who had to make a shift away from being in a full time touring band. His guests share their experiences with all the behind the scenes that go with being in a band or working in the music industry. Also Doc is a great host and has great insights that he shares.

Love this show, talking to all kinds of current and former members of all kinds of bands. Doc is a great host, and is very natural with the interviews. Also a great resource if you are interested in the heavier band lifestyle and what is dealt with in that world. Great to hear from former members of great bands and to see what they are up to, as well as hearing about new projects. Thanks Doc, the show is awesome! \m/
