Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Best Friends
For the over 20 years I spent in the Marine Corps, I had two best friends that I would "geek out" with about our favorite type of music, hard rock & heavy metal. We would buy & swap music, talk about bands, and attend concerts together. In late 2015 we all three retired from the military within a couple of months of each other, and ended up moving to different parts of the country. After that happened, I really started to miss my music camaraderie. When I started my new civilian job, a desk/computer job, I needed to find something to help pass the time during the day.
Well, one of my favorite albums from the 80's & early 90's is "Under the Influence" from the band Wildside. In September 2016 Wildside got back together for a one off concert here in Golden, Colorado. It was awesome! A couple days later, I went on YouTube to see clips of the concert, and I saw that they were posted by "Decibel Geek TV." This peeked my curiosity, and I had to find out more about this Decibel Geek. So in October of 2016, I discovered the Decibel Geek Podcast, and I've been addicted ever since. Chris & Aaron have become my new hard rock best friends!! Over the past 2 years, I have binge listened to over 330 episodes of the podcast, which makes being at work a hell of a lot more entertaining!! Since I discovered the Decibel Geek podcast, I have also started to listen to other music related podcasts, however, none of them keep me as interested or entertained as Chris & Aaron. One big reason for that is that Chris & Aaron are no "one trick pony", and the variety of their shows is great! Different episodes range from: Radio Sucks, Year in Review, Albums Unleashed, Fresh Blood, Artist Interviews, Top 5 Lists, Kissmas in July, and the ever popular, Vinn.....err, I mean, (un-named artist) Specials.
After binge listening through the whole back catalog, I began to worry that I wouldn't get as much Chris & Aaron music banter. Well, luckily I was wrong! I made a donation to the Decibel Geeks, and I became a Decibel Geek VIP! As a DBG VIP, I get access to a ton of more material. I now get to listen to Album VS, extra content from interviews, the laid back vibe, normal life stuff of the "Chris & Aaron Show", and the new all KISS podcast, "Torpedo Dudes."
If you are a fan of Hard Rock & Heavy Metal music, and want to listen to two guys who could be your music "geek out" best friends, without any controversy or drama, you have to give the Decibel Geek podcast a listen. Best music podcast on Planet Rock!! Keep Rockin' Brothers!!!
