Diamonds Are A Band’s Best Friend – EP105
Episode of
Growin' Up Rock
Episode Description: Gold albums are great, but diamonds are a band's best friend. In this episode, we are covering all the Diamond Certified rock albums. Sonny and I talk about the albums we own and the ones we don't, and we share our thoughts and feelings on some of the artist. We even play some guitar-driven rock that might be out of the norm for our show, but we promise you'll enjoy it. What's The Story? Once upon a time bands sold millions of records worldwide, and for a select few, their albums reached Diamond Status, meaning the album sold at least 10 million copies. This is a crazy statistic! In the world of rock n roll, diamond-certified albums are few and far between. Especially considering how greatly the music landscape has changed in the past 10 years. Multi-platinum albums have given way to streaming services and singles downloads. Rock bands and the great albums they made are unfortunately seen as a thing of the past. Not all diamond certified rock albums would be considered hard rock, but all of the albums we discuss can no doubt be considered rock n roll records. We get a chance to play some guitar-driven tracks from albums we love that don't always get fair play on our show, but make no mistake about it, were part of this rock n roll path we travel.

Whitesnake’s Joel Hoekstra Returns – EP103
Episode of
Growin' Up Rock
Episode Description: Whitesnake's guitarist Joel Hoekstra returns to the show to discuss the new Whitesnake album Flesh & Blood. We also find out if Joel has been practicing his jump shot lately to prepare for the upcoming MORC basketball game in February. What’s The Story: In May Whitesnake released it's first album of original material since 2011's Forevermore. The new "Flesh And Blood" record marks the first Whitesnake album of original material to feature guitarist Joel Hoekstra. Joel first appeared with Whitesnake on The Purple Album in 2015, which was an album re-recording some of the classic Deep Purple material. Joel is a hard working in demand guitarist that splits his time with Whitesnake, Cher, and Trans Siberian Orchestra. When he's not playing guitar he loves to practice his jump shot on the courts. We were happy to catch back up with Joel as he shared the full story on the new Flesh And Blood record which we think is awesome.

Hollywood’s Wild Hair – Volume 2 – EP102
Episode of
Growin' Up Rock
Episode Description: Hollywood's Wild Hair Volume 2 goes from doing a solo episode to being joined by long time friend Tony Musallam of the band Restrayned.  The idea is to reminiscence a bit, share some stories of yesteryear, play some killer music and basically make you laugh a little. What's The Story ? : Although the original Wild Hair idea was to do solo episodes, there is something about a close friend joining you that just creates magic. Hollywood and Tony have a blast just being two dudes hanging out sharing stories of Growin' Up Rock while playing some songs from Ratt, Winger, Lynch Mob, Saints and Sinners, Restrayned, Bullet For My Valentine, Battle Beast, Black Label Society, and Yngwie Malmsteen. Stories of murder, drunken women, and crazy concert experiences will make you laugh and probably cry tears of stupidity. These two are definitely two of a kind and belong together in some sort of insane asylum. Enjoy!!
