In this episode, we talk with Bob Nalbandian, director of the docuseries “Inside Metal: The Pioneers Of Hard Rock And Metal.” Bob shares his growing up rock stories and some amazing stories about making these documentaries and growing up in LA during this glorious time for hard rock and metal music.
In the not-too-distant future, the awesome bands of the 70’s and 80’s that we grew up loving and seeing live in concert be just a memory. Time stops for no man. That’s why it’s increasingly important for documentaries to be made by people like Bob Nalbandian who grew up in LA and is an ardent fan of hard rock and metal. Bob was into the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) and some of the awesome local acts happening out in LA during the musical explosion of the 80’s and early 90’s.
Bob Nalbandian loves the music and connected first hand with the musicians, many of whom grew up in Los Angeles at a time when bands and fans filled local clubs like the Whiskey, The Troubadour, The Starwood, and The Country Club.
You've heard of Motley Crue, Van Halen, Ratt, and Quiet Riot, but for every one of those bands there were five others that were every bit as popular in the clubs at the time that you never heard of unless you lived on the Sunset Strip when the LA metal scene exploded.
We had an awesome time just hanging out and talking with Bob about some of the stories, characters, and memories he had seeing these killer rock n roll bands coming of age in the early stages of their careers out in Hollywood.
