Clutch’s Neil Fallon on The MetalSucks Podcast #455


Iconic lyricist and Clutch frontman Neil Fallon is our guest this week! As his band gets ready to release Sunrise on Slaughter Beach and continues their North American tour, we discuss the Live at the Doom Saloon livestream sessions that celebrated 30 years of the band and why the band decided not to pre-record the streaming performances.

We also talked about how the latest album was a studio-centric scenario for the band, how Fallon’s focusing more on storytelling when he wants to present lyrical content, how music videos have been a huge part of their creative process the last decade, the lessons that he learned through the years opening for non-receptive audiences, if he is open to writing a Clutch autobiography, the importance of traveling to help you empathize with people, and what he wanted to write about when he started writing the new album.

Petar, Jozalyn, and Sylvia discuss Jozalyn recording her first comedy special in Colorado, missing the Motley Crüe Stadium tour, Trent Reznor’s comments on watching the Taylor Hawkins tribute show, and our thoughts on Ozzy Osbourne’s comments on his future.
