Hair Metal Podcast: Episode 10: 1989 MOSCOW MUSIC PEACE FESTIVAL, 30 years Later!

Welcome to the Fandom Podcast Network's special presentation of... THE HAIR METAL PODCAST! 

The Hair Metal Podcast cover bands that reached several levels of popularity and notoriety during the mid to late 1980's "Hair Metal" explosion. We take an in-depth look into the bands that defined the style and sound of Hair Metal, and many other bands that may or may not be categorized as Hair metal, but did reach some popularity during the Hair Metal rush of the 1980's. 

Kevin Reitzel is your host for The Hair Metal Podcast. Kevin's special returning guest for this Hair Metal Podcast episode is... Johnny K.!

In this episode of the Hair Metal Podcast, Kevin & Johnny give you a special "Lesson In Hair Metal History". Our normal episode segment of a Lesson in Hair Metal History usually covers a history making, famous, memorable or sometimes infamous Hair Metal music event or moment. In this episode we don't disappoint, as we give you a full episode dose of a Lesson in Hair Band History as we discuss... the 1989 MOSCOW MUSIC PEACE FESTIVAL! 

The Moscow Music Peace Festival was a series of performances by famous Hair Metal era rock bands, who performed in the Soviet Union, in the city of Moscow at Lenin Stadium on August 12-13, 1989, as a promotion of peace and a way to establish international cooperation between the USSR and the West.  This was the first time that an audience was allowed to stand and dance at a concert in the Soviet Union. Before this, all concert attendees had to remain seated. The concert was put together by music producer and band manager Doc McGhee and his Make a Difference Foundation.

The bands & artists that performed at this momentous event were:
- Skid Row
- Gorky Park
- Cinderella
- Ozzy Osbourne
- Mötley Crüe
- Scorpions
- Bon Jovi

Kevin & Johnny discuss many topics about the Moscow Music Peace Festival:
- Our first hand experiences watching it for the first time
- Each bands performance and set list
- Behind the scenes drama with band manager Doc McGhee, and the ego issues between several of the bands.
- The differences between the original pay per view special and the limited DVD release and YouTube versions.

- Behind the scenes videos of the bands sight seeing Moscow. 
- And the effect this event and the changes in Russia had on Scorpions lead singer Klaus Meine, who was inspired to write the Scorpions biggest hit, "Wind of Change".

Kevin and Johnny also have their Rock N Roll T-shirt check in, and discuss the recent bands they've seen, or going to see. And Johnny's awesome breakdown of his recent experience seeing Iron Maiden live on their current Greatest's Hits tour!

Kevin would like to thank his very special guest... Johnny K!

Hair Metal Podcast 09: MARK KNIGHT Interview - Former BANG TANGO Guitarist & Solo Artist in MARK KNIGHT & THE UNSUNG HEROES

Welcome to the Fandom Podcast Network's special presentation of... THE HAIR METAL PODCAST! 

The Hair Metal Podcast cover bands that reached several levels of popularity and notoriety during the mid to late 1980's "Hair Metal" explosion. We take an in-depth look into the bands that defined the style and sound of Hair Metal, and many other bands that may or may not be categorized as Hair metal, but did reach some popularity during the Hair Metal rush of the 1980's. 
 

Kevin Reitzel is your host for The Hair Metal Podcast. Kevin's special guest for this Hair Metal Podcast episode, is Mark Knight, former BANG TANGO Guitarist, and now solo artist, as singer and guitarist for his newest band Mark Knight and The Unsung Heroes! 

Bang Tango was one of those bands that were on the edge of approaching super stardom during the Hair Metal scene in the late 80's. Bang Tango was formed in 1988 in Los Angeles by guitarist Mark Knight and bassist Kyle Kyle in 1988. Knight recruited a second guitarist Kyle Stevens. Soon after vocalist Joe Leste joined the band as its front man which led to Leste's childhood friend, Tigg Ketler, completing the 5 piece line up as Bang Tango's drummer. 

Bang Tango's initial release, a live EP titled Live Injection came out in early 1989 leading up to the release of their Howard Benson produced full-length debut Psycho Café which topped off at number 58 on the Billboard top 200 chart. The music video for the single Someone Like You was a popular staple on early 90's MTV programming such as Dial MTV and Headbanger's Ball. A video was also made for the single Breaking Up a Heart of Stone. The band would tour extensively during this period with the likes of Cheap Trick, LA Guns, Ratt, and Bulletboys. Bang Tango's next album releases was Dancing on Coals in 1991, then followed up by Love After Death in 1993, which never was released by MCA because the band was dropped by the label. 

Mark Knight is now the singer, songwriter and guitarist with his current band, Mark Knight & The Unsung Heroes! For more information, check them out here:

- Mark's musical direction in the late 90's after Bang Tango and through the 2000's.
- Mark Knight then discusses his current project: Mark Knight and the Unsung Heroes.

However the project then languished in development hell for over a decade, going through numerous directors and cast members before Netflix purchased the rights in March 2017. Filming began around New Orleans in February 2018. The Dirt was released digitally on Netflix on March 22, 2019.

Hair Metal Podcast 07: Interview Special w/ Guest DREW FORTIER - Director of ATTACK OF LIFE: THE BANG TANGO MOVIE

Welcome to the Fandom Podcast Network's special presentation of... THE HAIR METAL PODCAST! 

The Hair Metal Podcast cover bands that reached several levels of popularity and notoriety during the mid to late 1980's "Hair Metal" explosion. We take an in-depth look into the bands that defined the style and sound of Hair Metal, and many other bands that may or may not be categorized as Hair metal, but did reach some popularity during the Hair Metal rush of the 1980's. 
 

Kevin Reitzel is your host for The Hair Metal Podcast. Kevin's special guest for this Hair Metal Podcast episode, is Drew Fortier, Director of "ATTACK OF LIFE: THE BANG TANGO MOVIE"!

Bang Tango was one of those bands that were on the edge of approaching super stardom during the Hair Metal scene in the late 80's. Bang Tango was formed in 1988 in Los Angeles by guitarist Mark Knight and bassist Kyle Kyle in 1988. Knight recruited a second guitarist Kyle Stevens. Soon after vocalist Joe Leste' joined the band as its front man which led to Leste's childhood friend, Tigg Ketler, completing the 5 piece line up as Bang Tango's drummer. 

Bang Tango's initial release, a live EP titled Live Injection came out in early 1989 leading up to the release of their Howard Benson produced full-length debut Psycho Café which topped off at number 58 on the Billboard top 200 chart. The music video for the single Someone Like You was a popular staple on early 90's MTV programming such as Dial MTV and Headbanger's Ball. A video was also made for the single Breaking Up a Heart of Stone. The band would tour extensively during this period with the likes of Cheap Trick, LA Guns, Ratt, and Bulletboys. Bang Tango's next album releases was Dancing on Coals in 1991, then followed up by Love After Death in 1993, which never was released by MCA because the band was dropped by the label. 

In June 2011, the band had met Drew Fortier, for whom they offered to shoot a studio documentary while they recorded their then new record Pistol Whipped in the Bible Belt. This project would then become expanded upon once Fortier had been put in contact with previous members of the band as well as its founding members. Over the course of 4 years Fortier would turn the project into a feature length documentary titled "Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie". The film features interviews with all original members of the band as well as most of the players who have performed in the band since its inception.

Reviews of the film were positive. The general consensus is that despite its low budget, the film still manages to get its point across in an unbiased, artistic, and engaging manner while being able to appeal to not only fans of the band or genre, but to anyone not familiar with Bang Tango. 

You can find Drew Fortier's movie "Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie" on YouTube here:

You can find Drew's Book "Dark, Depressing, and Hilarious: My Bittersweet Journey In and Out of the Music Business" here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1718106394/ref=cm_sw_r_em_api_i_c_c.NGCbJBHPFTN

Kevin is honored to have and his guest Drew on this special podcast to discuss Kevin's favorite band of all time, and Drew's movie "ATTACK OF LIFE: THE BANG TANGO MOVIE" Kevin and Drew discuss many topics in this episode:

- Drew's musical influences.
- What bands Drew played with.
- How did Drew end up playing with Bang Tango.
- What inspired Drew to do a documentary about Bang Tango. 
- Drew's experience interviewing the original members and the guests and fellow musicians speaking on the behalf of Bang Tango.
- What was the most challenging and rewarding parts of making the Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie. 
- Drew talks about the Bang Tango super fan that ended up singing the whole set for the band one night.
- What are Drew's favorite Bang Tango songs to listen too and play live.

Kevin would like to thank his very special guest... DREW FORTIER!

Hair Metal Podcast: Episode 06: GUNS N ROSES & SKID ROW w/ Special Guests...MURF & ANNA!!

Welcome to the Fandom Podcast Network's special presentation of... THE HAIR METAL PODCAST! 

The Hair Metal Podcast cover bands that reached several levels of popularity and notoriety during the mid to late 1980's "Hair Metal" explosion. We take an in-depth look into the bands that defined the style and sound of Hair Metal, and many other bands that may or may not be categorized as Hair metal, but did reach some popularity during the Hair Metal rush of the 1980's. 

In this episode, we discuss SKID ROW and GUNS N' ROSES!

Kevin Reitzel is your host for The Hair Metal Podcast. Kevin welcomes special guest hosts, MURF from RAIDER FANS RADIO, and his lovely wife ANNA!

Kevin and his guests Murf and Anna discuss many fun topics in this episode:

- A Lesson In Hair Band History: The Guns N Roses / Skid Row Tour 1991-1993. 
On the eve of Guns N' Roses ambitious double album release of Use Your Illusion 1 & 2, in early 1991,  Guns N' Roses set off on a massive world tour to help promote these albums. oOn the success of their debut album and their new album Slave To The Grind, Skid Row joined Guns N' Roses for many of these dates, including several sold out Los Angeles area concerts that host Kevin went to. Included in one of these shows was GNR's longest set, which reached about 3 1/2 hours!

- Skid Row! Kevin, Murf and Anna discuss Skid Row and the impact they had immediately on the rock and roll Hair Metal scene, including their flamboyant good looking lead singer Sebastian Bach. Anna also makes an interesting comparison of Skid Row and the 90's "Boy Bands".

- Guns N' Roses! Probably the biggest bands to come out of the "Hair Metal" scene! But many will argue that they aren't hair metal, instead they were the anti hair metal band as they look and acted different and wrote songs that weren't your cookie cutter safe pop rock material. We dive deep into their billboard hits and great albums, and we also talk about our least favorite GNR album.  

Kevin would like to thank his very special guests... MURF and ANNA!
