In Episode 477 we welcome back to Iron City Rocks Jeff Plate of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The band is in the midst of their annual holiday run performing Christmas Eve and Other Stories this year. We talk about getting back into the grind of doing 8 shows a week, dealing with health and safety protocols on the road, how he and the band dealt without being able to tour in 2020, his regiment for drumming and much more.
We are also joined by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Jim McCarty of the Yardbirds. Jim has recently released his second book entitled She Walks In Beauty co-written with Dave Tompson. Jim shares with us the emotional inspiration behind the book and we talk about what’s going on with one of the most influential bands in history, the Yardbirds.
