Holy Diver (Series Finale)

Holy Diver (Series Finale)

2023-12-2001:54:43

This is it. After 6+ years, 11 seasons and 275 episodes, the boys are putting the record back in the sleeve. And what better way to say farewell than do wholly dive into one of our longest-running references and in-jokes, Dio's absolutely epic and iconic "Holy Diver." In this nearly two-hour series finale, we'll squeeze the delicious juice from Ronnie James Dio's signature hit, get into his time with Black Sabbath, Rainbow, and more. We'll also dig back into our own history and do all the things one should do when closing up shop--we'll reminisce, hear from a few favorite friends (and a couple new surprises!), and present the Top Five songs we should have ended the show with. What else can we say? Thanks for listening. It's been fun. Share some memories and say goodbye on Facebook or Instagram. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/greatsongpod/message

One of the greatest rock songs of the 1990s, Everclear's "Santa Monica" gives us shivers of joy every time we hear it! And we've got frontman and songwriter Art Alexakis to chat with us about the song, his favorite rock album, his life of recovery, and much more. Plus: - Unfortunate last names - The Art Alexakis "Yeah" - And our usual shenanigans.

Your favorite new rock band is The Effect, and we can prove it! Fresh off a debut single and moments before a follow-up, we chat with Trev Lukather (yep, son of Toto's Steve) and Nic Collins (yep, son of Phil) about getting together on this next-gen collaboration. You'll hear about using live tracks responsibly, loving work that didn't necessarily end well, and what songs of their progenitors you should be more familiar with, including the Steve Lukather+Eddie Van Halen collaboration that got buried by a record label. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/greatsongpod/message
The most overwhelming American Idol winner in history sits in with the boys as our official kickoff of the home stretch of episodes before we call it a day.

We're feeling sentimental as we come toward the end of the show, so we wanted to dedicate this week to our incredible wives (mostly in hope that they'll listen to an episode). And what better song to do it than the syrupy-sweet classic, "You Are The Woman" by Firefall? We'll dig deep, you'll learn about a Moose Call, and in a great interview, Jock Bartley of Firefall will tell us (among other things) about a really grim reality of the record industry we've never heard about before. facebook.com/groups/greatsongpod instagram.com/greatsongpod --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/greatsongpod/message
One of the all-time "traveling down the dusty old road" songs, a fixture of classic rock radio and biker gangs everywhere, Blackfoot's "Highway Song" has a feel that just won't quit. And we've got Blackfoot founder and long-time Lynyrd Skynyrd lead guitarist Rickey Medlocke to tell us all about it. A great storyteller and affable guy, he'll tell us all about his history with Blackfoot and Skynyrd, his beef with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the importance of honoring his Indigenous heritage, and much more. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/greatsongpod/message

Wow. Guys. You two had joyfully gained my respect after listeng to several random episodes featuring some of my favorites songs and artist. But COME ON, man, you guys completely missed the mark several times in this episode. I normally feel like you both have done an impressive amount of multi-faceted research. I kinda feel like you phoned it in. Boston's music was a solid constant in my teenage years - everyone I knew LOVED Boston. Universally, when you heard the first notes of a Boston song, the reaction was "Awright!!" or "Yeah!!". I mean you didn't even mention any of their other monster tunes- Rock N Roll Band, Smokin', Something About You, Feelin Satisfied, Don't Look Back, Peace of Mind (OK, JP mentioned this one), and the classic Foreplay / Long Time. Amanda was notable as a pop-ish hit, but not one of my faves. You made a reference to Kurt Cobain and chuckled about a comparison to Brad Delp. They have at least one thing in common--they both ended their own lives, tragically. Y
