In Episode 472 of the Iron City Rocks Podcast we welcome back to the show Joel Hoekstra of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Whitesnake. Joel gets us ready for the massive Christmas Eve and Other Stories tour set to kick of November 17th (two shows in Pittsburgh December 29th – tickets available now). Joel also talks with us about the Whitesnake “Farewell” tour and his own solo music.
We are also joined by LA Guns frontman Phil Lewis to talk about the band’s forthcoming album Checkered Past which is due out November 12th. Phil talks about why making new music is important for the band, how he keeps his voice in such amazing shape, making an album as a band in a virtual world and more.
