CINDERELLA: New Audio Interview, Concert Footage Available

The June edition of the “Classic Rock And Metal” podcast is available for streaming using the audio player below. This month, Tom Keifer from ’80s superstars CINDERELLA talks about the band’s upcoming tour dates and his huge relief now that the vocal problems which have plagued him for nearly 20 years are behind him. As it’s Donington time, Keifer also reminisces on CINDERELLA‘s two appearances there in 1987 and 2010.

Also in this month’s installment of the “Classic Rock And Metal” podcast: Zodiac Mindwarp checks in from his home in Louisiana to talk about longtime collaborator Cobalt Stargazer, why his new drummer wears gold shorts, opening for Alice Cooper and getting away with it all these years.

PRAYING MANTIS goes right back to the start of the NWOBHM movement and is thankfully still treading the boards and creating new music today. Guitarist and founder member Chris Troy talks about the band’s new EP, their history, their long-standing relationship with IRON MAIDEN, especially former members of both bands, Dennis Stratton and Clive Burr.

THE AUSTRALIAN PINK FLOYD has taken the idea of tribute acts onto another level. They’ve played at David Gilmour‘s birthday party, Nick Mason claims they’re probably better than the real thing and they’re now playing almost the same size arenas as FLOYD did just a few years ago. Keyboard player Jason Sawford talks about how they went from pubs in Melbourne to Hampton Court Palace in London.
