Hank Von Hell (ex-Turbonegro) on The MetalSucks Podcast #298
Ex-Turbnegro frontman Hank Von Hell is our guest this week. We discuss his first North American solo tour later this summer, the circumstances that led to the original tour’s postponement earlier this year and the difficulty of rescheduling all the dates, how his past addictions still haunt him and the myth of rock n’ roll’s tie to mental illness, why he had to step away from the rock scene for many years, why the need for rock n’ roll is back in a big way, his current relationship with all the guys from Jackass, the symbolism of his comeback video “Bum to Bum” featuring Steve O, and an update on the solo EP that he had planned to release in time for the North American tour.
Petar and Brandon talk about their love for the 20 worst modern metal videos, the Mudvayne reunion rumors, Justin Bieber’s wife defending him from Maynard James Keenan, Metallica performing to 1% of the population of Finland, and Brandon not being excited about Rob Zombie’s 3 from Hell.
Songs: Hank Von Hell – “Bum To Bum” and John 5 – “Zoinks”
