He was also one of the most charming people you could ever hope to meet. Not that I ever actually did. The closest I came was a question or two at post-race press conferences.

With apologies to the mighty Loond for its lengthy delay, I hereby unleash our latest podcast! We discuss the might and influence of Venom and delve into technology-vs.-rock, with Nothing More used as an example that the two can co-exist. New music from Lucifer (ex-The Oath, Gaz Jennings), Tao Cross (ex-Amebix, Away), Goatsnake, and Armored Saint gets evaluated and the eyes of metal also fall on Superjoint, Ten Foot Beast, Headcrusher, Faith No More, Motorhead, Anthrax, and Saxon.
