#311 Exene Cervenka (X)

Exene is someone else I met on the Flogging Molly Cruise - we actually met on the 2022 Salty Dog Cruise, it's just taken me until now to invite her onto the show. But everything happens for a reason. All in due time and all that. I genuinely believe that to be true.This was such a soul-stirring and inspiring conversation.We discuss sobriety, recovery, relationships, heartache, creativity and so much more. It actually felt more like an exercise in life advice than an interview, and I'm very grateful to Exene for her friendship, wisdom and guidance. She's an amazing person, not to mention an incredible artist and songwriter.If you're not familiar with the music of X, get to know it. Be sure to check out all of Exene's other projects, too.

I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with Vic from The Slackers on the Flogging Molly Cruise. And I knew right away I had to get him on the podcast.The Slackers are not only one of the best (and most criminally overlooked) contemporary ska bands, Vic is also an incredible songwriter and musician, not to mention a real old school New York character.I'm sure he has stories for days. We get into a few of them here, from growing up in the Bronx and the New York music scene to the history of The Slackers and his connection with Rancid and the Transplants, and the importance of politics and a social message in his music.Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjMy first two books (Life In The Stocks Volume One & Two) are also out NOW and available to buy from all reputable online book stores.

#309 Jesse Leach (Stoke The Fire)

Merry Christmas boys and girls!!! I thought I'd do something a little different for this special Christmas episode of LITS and share with you an episode of my other podcast, Stoke The Fire, a show that I co-host with my best friend Jesse Leach from Killswitch Engage. We launched the show during COVID as a means of connecting in a time of much division and unrest, and it's something we've continued (albeit sporadically) in the post-COVID world. Many of the guests that've appeared on Life In The Stocks have also appeared on Stoke The Fire, and if you think this podcast is deep, we go way DEEP on Stoke The Fire.STF has become like therapy to Jesse and I and our listeners over the last couple of years, and today seemed like the perfect time to share a very heartfelt, vulnerable and honest conversation between the pair of us to give you all a flavour of what Stoke The Fire is all about. If you like what you hear, please subscribe to that podcast and check out the other 71 episodes that we've published. Merry Christmas everyone. And thank you for all the support this year. It really means a lot. Love to all. xFollow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjMy first two books (Life In The Stocks Volume One & Two) are also out NOW and available to buy from all reputable online book stores.

#308 Mark Tremonti (Creed/Alter Bridge/Solo)

I've had the pleasure of interviewing Mark Tremonti many times over the last 12 years, for Kerrang! Radio, Scuzz TV and Metal Hammer, but this is his first appearance on Life In The Stocks.We talk a little bit about Creed and Alter Bridge, obviously, but the main focus of this conversation is the last couple of solo records that Mark has put out, namely his Frank Sinatra covers album and the Christmas album he just released, Christmas Classics New & Old.As a big fan of both Sinatra and Christmas music, I was fascinated by the idea of a metal shredder guitarist taking on this material, and doing such a great job of interpreting it and making it their own. Mark really knocked it out of the park with both albums.We also discuss the creative and business approach to both records, and the charitable organisation and driving force behind the projects, namely the National Down Syndrome Society (https://ndss.org/) in the US and Down Syndrome International (https://www.ds-int.org/) charity in the UK.Thank you to Mark for a brilliant conversation. It was great to reconnect and catch up.

#307 Whitfield Crane (Ugly Kid Joe)

The wait is finally over. Whitfield Crane is probably the most requested guest in the history of Life In The Stocks. We've been friends for over ten years and people are always asking me, "When's Whit Crane coming on the podcast?" We were just biding our time for the right moment, and this was truly it. An Evening with Whitfield Crane, as recorded live at the West Hampstead Arts Club in London on October 26. Thank you to everyone who made it out to the show. It was an incredibly special evening filled with soul-stirring conversation, awesome music and excellent company. I've left the live music out of the podcast, like I tend to do with these live podcasts, since I like to leave something specifically for the people who were there in the room. But here's the full interview and audience Q&A section for your enjoyment.

Those conversations with Cab are out there and they are excellent. This is something a little different. This is a conversation about life, faith and the human condition. Thank you to Cab for being so courageously open and vulnerable with me. And thank you to everyone who was on the boat with us.

#298 Tommy Stinson (The Replacements/Guns N' Roses/Solo)

A bonafide rock 'n' roll bad ass joins me for Episode 298 of Life In The Stocks. Tommy Stinson was an original founding member of The Replacements, one of the most influential and underrated rock 'n' roll bands of all-time. And when that band came to an end and Duff McKagan left Guns N' Roses, Tommy started playing bass with GNR, and he remained with the group from 1998-2014. So he's served extended tenures in two of the most iconic and awesome rock bands ever. And we get into all of that in this episode of LITS. We also talk about his friendship with Bob Dylan and Tom Waits. No big deal. Check out his new Cowboys In The Campfire record, Wronger, which is out now.

#294 Spike Slawson (Me First and the Gimme Gimmes/Uke-Hunt)

It blows my mind that I can be 294 podcasts in and still be recording some of my favourite Life In The Stocks episodes to date. It gets me so excited about the future and what's still to come. But let's not get ahead of ourselves...joining me for Episode 294 of LITS is Spike Slawson from Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, aka the best covers band in the world, and his solo project Uke-Hunt - see what he did there?!?This is a great chat. We discuss frontmanship (is that a word?) and show business, getting sober and the effect that has on your craft, censorship, creativity and the joy of discovering music. We also talk about Pittsburgh and the socio-economic and political history of that part of America, the history of American punk, the ever-evolving Gimmes line-up and so much more.Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjMy first two books (Life In The Stocks Volume One & Two) are also out NOW and available to buy from all reputable online book stores.

#291 Rebecca Schnell (Monster Truck Driver/Nurse)

The last couple of episodes have been very special to me - both last week's chat with Canadian broadcaster Strombo, and this week's conversation with Rebecca Schnell.It's so nice to talk to people that I share a professional common ground with, and I think it makes for really interesting conversations. It's something a little bit different to the typical music interviews that I tend to do. And it's always stimulating to step outside of that box. Rebecca is a Monster Truck driver and someone that I get to work with on the annual Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live tours that I've been doing in the UK for the last two years. She is also an emergency room nurse and one of the most impressive and inspiring people I know.I absolutely love this conversation and I know you're going to love it too, just like you're going to love Rebecca because she's an absolute superstar.Follow Rebecca on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/rebecca.schnell_mtdriver/Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjMy first two books (Life In The Stocks Volume One & Two) are also out NOW and available to buy from all reputable online book stores.

#290 George Stroumboulopoulos (Broadcaster)

This is one of my favourite podcasts to date. George Stroumboulopoulos, aka Strombo, is one of the very few broadcasters and interviewers that I genuinely look up to and admire. He is an absolute legend in the game. I was both honoured and thrilled to have the chance to sit down and talk to him about the art of interviewing, our mutual love of conversation and connection, music, art & culture. I feel like I've found a kindred spirit in George and I really hope you enjoying listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it.You can follow George on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/strombo/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA%3D%3D&__coig_restricted=1And check out his radio show on Apple MUSIC here: https://music.apple.com/us/curator/strombo/1496683317Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjMy first two books (Life In The Stocks Volume One & Two) are also out NOW and available to buy from all reputable online book stores.

Episode 289 of Life In The Stocks features highlights from my Live Q&As at this year's Copenhell Festival with Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Zakk Wylde (Pantera) and Halestorm.

#286 Joe Sib (Wax/22 Jacks/SideOneDummy Records/Comedian)

My guest this week for Episode 286 of Life In The Stocks is comedian Joe Sib. I first met Joe on the Flogging Molly Cruise back in 2019, and we've been talking about getting him on the podcast for ages. Well, it just so happens that Joe puts out his new mini stand-up special today, so it seemed like the perfect time to finally have him on the show. You'll find a link to watch the special on YouTube below. This guy has stories for days and we barely scratched the surface in this 90 minute interview that you're about to hear.

#285 Nathen Maxwell (Flogging Molly)

My good friend and fellow Flogging Molly shipmate Nathen Maxwell joins me for Episode 285 of Life In The Stocks. We talk about growing up in California, meeting Flogging Molly and joining the band, the history and friendships that exist there, the gratitude that Nathen has for being in a successful touring band, the Salty Dog Cruise, obviously, and Nathen's other musical project with his wife Shelby, Volores. We also get deep and talk about life and the human experience, as I like to do on the show, and we had a great time getting to know each better. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.

#284 Chas Palmer-Williams (Lightyear/Solo)

It's always a pleasure welcoming friends onto the podcast, and joining me for Episode 284 of Life In The Stocks is my dear friend of over ten years, the legend that is Chas Palmer-Williams. This is one of the longest and most in-depth interviews I've done in a while, although it's more like like two old friends having a catch up than an interview, as it should be. So buckle, enjoy the ride, and listen to Lightyear if you know what's good for you. Check out the solo record Chas did too, called American Smile, British Teeth. It's like the soundtrack to the Shane Meadows film that never got made.Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjMy first two books (Life In The Stocks Volume One & Two) are also out NOW and available to buy from all reputable online book stores.

#283 Robin Campbell (UB40)

I'm honoured to be joined by a proper Brummie legend on the show this week, as Robin Campbell from UB40 joins me for Episode 283 of Life In The Stocks to discuss the storied past, complex present, and exciting future of the band. They've been going 45 years this year and sold over 100 million albums to date. But perhaps their greatest achievement is helping to put reggae music on the worldwide map. Not bad for a group of working class lads from Birmingham. As a Birmingham boy myself, I really enjoyed this conversation and was thrilled to have Robin on the show.Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjMy first two books (Life In The Stocks Volume One & Two) are also out NOW and available to buy from all reputable online book stores.

#282 Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns)

Joining me for Episode 282 of Life In The Stocks is Tracii Guns from L.A. Guns. I met Tracii on the Kiss Kruise last year and we've been chatting back and forth on Instagram since then. He's a great guy and I was thrilled to have the chance to sit down and get into a proper deep dive conversation with him for LITS. Be sure to check out the new L.A. Guns album 'Black Diamonds' out April 14. It's as good as anything they've ever done. I've been delving into their back catalogue loads since seeing them live on the Kiss Kruise for the first time, and they're one of the most consistently solid rock 'n' roll bands out there. Tracii is an absolute geezer as well.

#280 The Covid Tapes (Lee Dainton)

This week marks three years since the world went into lockdown following the global outbreak of COVID-19. I've been thinking about that strange and surreal time quite a bit recently, and now feels like the right time to share this series of interviews that I did during the first lockdown period for my supporters over on Patreon. I spent a whole month uploading a new episode every weekday, and for each episode I was joined by past podcast guests and friends of the show. We spoke about our mutual lockdown experiences and attempted to make sense of everything that was going on at that time, and each guest handpicked a five-song playlist to the end of the world, hence the name of the series: Soundtrack Apocalypse. I've renamed them The Covid Tapes here. I hope you enjoy this peculiar little trip down memory lane. It still feels like a bit of a dream/nightmare doesn't it?!? Thank "whoever" it's all over now. I'm very thankful to be working again. And I'm extremely grateful to everyone who supported me during this time, especially the Patreon crew without whom I never would've made it. Thank you.

Welcome to my first ever full band podcast here on Life In The Stocks. And what an incredible band to feature as the first one...you wanted the best, you got the best...the hottest band in the world: KISS. This live interview with Eric Singer, Tommy Thayer, Gene Simmons & Paul Stanley was recorded onboard the eleventh annual Kiss Kruise, and it is without a doubt one of my favourite interviews to date. What a huge honour and a great pleasure it was to host this very special live Q&A. I can't thank Kiss, Doc McGhee & Sixthman enough for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Legendary music manager Doc McGhee joins me for this week's episode of Life In The Stocks and I could not be more pleased to share this episode with you, since Doc has been a dream guest of mine ever since I launched the podcast back in 2017. The only previous manager guest before this is Alan McGee (no relation), which was five years ago now, and it's great to finally welcome another key behind-the-scenes player onto the podcast. This conversation with Doc was recorded live on the Kiss Kruise last month - more on that in the next episode - and it's definitely one of my favourite podcasts to date. Doc is the real deal, and I can't thank him enough for this fantastic interview.

Blasko is also a music manager who looks after the likes of Clutch and Black Label Society, and he's previously played in Prong, Danzig, and Rob Zombie's band. We had a great talk about passion, ambition, drive, tenacity, humility, positivity, and his time working in/on all the aforementioned bands and projects.

#242 Laurent "Lags" Barnard (Gallows)

We have another UK guest joining us today for Episode 242 of Life In The Stocks. I've decided I need to show more home country love and feature more British guests on the podcast, continuing today with Laurent Barnard, aka Lags, from Gallows - one of the most formidable UK punk bands of the last two decades. The band's guitarist and primary songwriter joins me to discuss Gallows Mk 1 with Frank Carter, and Gallows Mk 2 with Wade McNeil, as he reveals the full story of the band from a group of young punks on the DIY local music scene in Watford to signing with a major label for one million pounds, Frank's departure, Wade replacing, where the band is at now, and the future of the group going forward. We squeeze in all kinds of other stuff along the way, too.Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows. www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMy first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones, Blackwell's & Rare Bird Publishing. https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.

Something a little bit different this week...I don't feature as many industry / behind the scenes guests as I'd like to on Life In The Stocks, but I always enjoy talking to them when I do, especially when they happen to be a close personal friend of mine, like this week's guest, Ben Ray from Slam Dunk. Slam Dunk is, for my money, the best alternative festival in the UK. It caters to everyone. And Ben's grown in from a ska punk club night in Leeds to one of the most successful festivals in the country. We talk all about that journey on this podcast, and lots of other fun stuff along the way.Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows. www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMy first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones, Blackwell's & Rare Bird Publishing. https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.

Episode 240 of Life In The Stocks features the one and only Paul Stanley from Kiss. I'd never met Paul Stanley before this Zoom call, and I've wanted to interview him for years, so it was an absolute pleasure to finally sit down with the Starchild and hear about his time in the hottest band in the world. We talk about his 45 year friendship with Gene Simmons, the creative and interpersonal dynamics within Kiss, original line-ups, evolving over time, doing what you love, never backing down, the legacy of Kiss, the strong possibility that the band will continue without Gene & Paul, and Paul's latest solo project, Soul Station. His new album, Now And Then, is out NOW and it's frickin' awesome.

#238 Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains/Solo)

This one has been on the cards for a while - at least in my mind! Alice In Chains head honcho Jerry Cantrell has been a dream guest of mine since I launched Life In The Stocks in 2017, and it's an honour to finally have him on the show. The only other podcast Jerry's done before this one is Let There Be Talk with Dean Delray - which, coincidentally, is the one of only two podcasts that I regularly listen to, the other being WTF with Marc Maron. So that makes this appearance on Life In The Stocks extra special. We talk all about Seattle and coming up in that scene with *those bands, we discuss working on movies like The Cable Guy and Jerry Maguire, playing with Duff McKagan, Jerry's love of blues and country music, his relationship with William DuVall, his admiration for Mike Patton, and his three incredible solo albums, Boggy Depot, Degradation Trip, and Brighten - out October 29th. Thanks to Jerry for coming on the show. I hope we can do another one in person someday.Follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows. www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMy first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones, Blackwell's & Rare Bird Publishing. https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.

#237 Paul Cook (Sex Pistols/The Professionals)

I figured we'd relaunch the show with two episodes seeing as how we've been away for two months. And what better way to reintroduce Life In The Stocks to the world of podcasting than with a conversation with a bonafide punk rock legend: Paul Cook from Sex Pistols & The Professionals.

#234 Ben Weasel (Screeching Weasel)

Episode 234 of Life In The Stocks features Ben Weasel from Screeching Weasel. Ben is somewhat of a divisive figure in the punk rock community, but very few outlets or platforms seem to have given him the chance to tell his side of the story following the incident at SXSW in Austin, Texas in 2011. So I thought it was about time I invited him on to my podcast to set the record straight. And we ended up having a super in-depth, interesting & insightful conversation that covered everything from cancel culture & wokism to racism, politics & socio-economics, comedy & censorship, controversy, redemption, parenthood, and a whole lot more. Forget about what you think you know about Ben Weasel. Go into this podcast with an open mind, and see how you feel at the end. If you're not familiar with his band either, Screeching Weasel are one of the most influential pop punk bands of all-time. They are well worthy of your time - if you like that kind of music, there are very few who do it better.

The Enter Shikari frontman and published author joins me for an in-depth discussion about his incredible new book, A Treatise on Possibility, which is one of the most well researched and thorough books I've ever read - especially from a musician.

Welcome to this very special episode of Life In The Stocks with my dear old Jaret Reddick from Bowling For Soup. I've known Jaret for ten years, since the Kerrang! Radio days, and he's one of my best friends in the music business. It's been six years since we last did an interview together, so we had an awful lot of ground to cover, and we got deep into it. People have been asking me when is Jaret going to make an appearance on the podcast ever since I launched the show in 2017, and believe me when I say it's been well worth the wait. This is one of the most honest, open & vulnerable podcast conversations you will ever hear. It's one of my all-time favourite episodes.

#208 TV Smith (The Adverts/Solo)

Punk legend TV Smith joins me for Episode 208 of Life In The Stocks. This is an incredibly exciting guest for me, as The Adverts are on of my all-time favourite punk bands and TV Smith is one of my all-time favourite songwriters. The first two Adverts albums, and his debut solo album, Channel Five, have been key records throughout my life. His new album Lockdown Holiday is also great - it addresses not only the global pandemic that we're still in, but also the state of humanity and where we find ourselves in 2021. I really hope you enjoy this conversation one of the all-time great British songwriters.Life In The Stocks is sponsored by Radical Clothing.

#202 Eric Melvin (NOFX)

We're kicking off Series Three of Life In The Stocks with a NOFX double bill. And what better way to initiate the next round of 100 episodes than with not one but TWO podcasts with the guys in my all-time favourite band. Last week, I finally welcomed Fat Mike on to the show, and it fast became my most downloaded episode to date. The response was incredible. And if you think that conversation with Fat Mike went deep, wait until you hear this week's podcast with Eric Melvin. What a beautiful soul.We had such a lovely talk, taking in the pandemic, how it's affected NOFX, life coaching, listening to and connecting with people, PMA, drugs and alcohol, what's been happening with Mike, getting him in to rehab, how that's impacted the band, the role of Smelly and El Hefe in NOFX, the book, fatherhood, his new electronic project, and so much more. This episode really is a great example of what this podcast is all about: deep philosophical discussions with interesting artists and grade A humans. I really hope you enjoy it and take something positive away from it.Be sure to check out the new album by NOFX as well. It's called 'Single Album' and it's out NOW.

#201 Fat Mike (NOFX)

This conversation has been a LONG time in the making. If you know me at all, or you've been following me online or listening to this podcast for a while, then you'll know that NOFX are my favourite band of all-time. I'm not saying they're the best, but they are my personal favourite. They've had such a big impact in my life. I even talk about it in my new book, which is out NOW! ;)The new album by NOFX, entitled Single Album, is also out NOW. And it's their most personal, self reflective, introspective record to date. You might not think that's your bag - you may prefer the upbeat, jovial, political NOFX - but truth be told, no one in the punk scene does sad, dark, confessional compositions quite like Fat Mike. This album is awesome. And because it is a little on the sombre side, this conversation is a little earnest, and perhaps not what you would expect from Fat Mike. But that's exactly why I like it.I'm obviously going to be biased, but I think this is one of the most open, honest & vulnerable interviews Fat Mike has ever done. And as a lifelong uber fan of the band, it was a dream come true to have him on the show. I wish we could've talked for even longer than we did. But we covered a lot of ground in the time that we did have together. I hope you enjoy listening to it half as much as I enjoyed recording it.Be sure to tune in next week too, as I'll be joined by Mike's best friend and bandmate, Eric Melvin of NOFX.Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones, Blackwell's & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.

And now for something completely different. A couple of weeks back, I got a message from my good friend Jesse Leach. He had a novel idea: that he come on Life In The Stocks, and not as a guest, but rather the host, and interview me for a change. So we switched roles. And this is the resulting conversation. I had an absolute ball recording it (apologies for the poor sound quality - I'm still figuring out these remote recording methods), and I hope you enjoy listening to it. Thank you so much to Jesse for suggesting we do this, being interested enough to do it, and for taking the time out for little old me.

#166 Jake Szufnarowski (Rocks Off)

Usually, when we put out episodes that are longer than 90 minutes, we split them into two parts, but we've decided to keep this one whole so you can get swept up and lost in the conversation. It's a DEEP one this week. And things get a little intense at times. But then that's what we do here on Life In The Stocks, and we hope anyone that's previously struggled or currently struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts will take something positive and inspirational away from hearing Jake's story.Jake is one of Matt's dearest friends, and in the words of Hunter S. Thompson, is "one of God's own prototypes: too weird to live and too rare to die." This already ranks as an all-time favourite episode. There's tales from Warped Tour '97, the final days of CBGB, partying with Kid Rock, and Jake's mental breakdown, suicide attempt, and the long, hard, ultimately rewarding road to recovery. There is something for everyone in here.Be sure to buy yourself a protective mask from Jake's insane array of designs, too. They're guaranteed to put a smile on your face - not to mention the faces of people you pass in the street. Jake also has some amazing Tiger King t-shirts for sale, too.Web link here: https://rocksoffthreads.threadless.com/Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.

#163 Chris No. 2 (Anti-Flag)

This week's episode of Life In The Stocks features Chris No. 2 from Anti-Flag. Despite touring together in the past, this was actually the first time that Matt and No. 2 sat down and had a proper conversation together, and it was well and truly worth the wait. What you're about to hear is deep, intense, life affirming, vulnerable and honest conversation that goes to some pretty difficult and at times dark places, but always comes back to the light and a tone of optimism and hope, because that's the kind of guy Chris is. You are going to love this episode. And we hope, if you've also been affected by some of the issues raised here, that you find some form of respite and comfort in No. 2's story.Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.

Matt's former Team Rock coconspirator Stephen Hill is this week's guest on Life In The Stocks. You may have heard him already on a couple of the Life In The Stocks bonus Patreon podcasts. The Metal Hammer writer and host of the Riot Act podcast joins us here to discuss his short lived comedy career, his break in the music industry, the Metal Hammer podcast, Team Rock and his tenure as the Breakfast Show presenter on Team Rock Radio, the That's Not Metal podcast, and his reasons for leaving that project behind to start his latest venture Riot Act with co-host and fellow music journalist Remfry Dedman. Things get deep and personal towards the end as well, so expect a few tears.Even if you don't know who Steve is, it's impossible not to be moved by his story, and this week's episode of the podcast ranks amongst the very best of Life In The Stocks.Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.

#104 Ginger Wildheart (The Wildhearts)

Ginger Wildheart has been a dream guest here on Life In The Stocks ever since the podcast launched in 2017 and it was an absolute pleasure and and honour to finally get him on the show. It's an intense episode this week, but hopefully an uplifting and inspiring one as well. The main thread of the conversation is mental health, suicide and depression, which obviously aren't easy topics to discuss, so thank you to Ginger for being so open and vulnerable and for sharing his struggles - hopefully anyone who suffers with mental health issues can take something positive away from this one.Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.

#100 Dirty Sanchez Live Show

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the last episode of Series One of Life In The Stocks, and Episode 100 overall. Seeing as how Pritchard & Dainton were the top two most downloaded episodes from the first season of the podcast, it made sense to bring things full circle with the audio from one of the Live Dirty Sanchez shows, and we've gone with the Cardiff show because that one was the most unruly and out of control - and it ends with live strip show, which may well be a podcast first. We'd like to say a huge thank you to Pritchard & Dainton for their friendship and all their support with the podcast.

#074 Jesse Leach Live Show

Today is World Mental Health Day, which seems like the perfect time to share the Live Q&A that I did with Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach in Birmingham back in August. Jesse is a true spokesman for mental health issues and I relished the opportunity to expand on the podcast we did together (Jesse was a guest back on Episode 005 of Life In The Stocks) in front of a live audience and do our bit to help spread the dialogue around mental health. He's someone I deeply admire and respect, and I hope anyone who suffers from mental health issues will get something positive and helpful from our conversation together. Stay strong and spread the love. You are not alone. xFollow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/ Hosted on Acast.
