Witchpolice Radio just turned 10 years old. We bring on its host Sam Thompson to pull a topic from out board. Pop stars have been plucking rock musicians to beef up their live sound and to add some edge to their live shows. Is it selling out for these musicians to take a break from their bands to perform for thousands of fans who have no idea who they are? We cover Fish of Fishbone performing with Justin Timberlake, Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme performing for Rihanna, Chris Shiflett from No Use For A Name performing with Foo Fighters, and Eddie Van Halen playing on Michael Jackson’s Beat It. The convo also covers artists who never would do the deed and a talk of bands who have replaced key members and still continue to tour like Kiss and the Guess Who.
We also talk about Bert and Ernie, Yngwie Malmsteen and the Muppets, Sesame Street Fever, toys and collectibles and just how cutting-edge Stan Lee from Marvel was.
