Talkin’ Rock with drummer Phil Varone Download

48:21 Download March 21st, 2019

Drummer Phil Varone announced his retirement last week, so I thought I’d get him on the show to talk about his career, and dispel some mis-truths that have been circulating on the internet in the last few days. This whole interview came about after I met Phil in passing before a recent show with the band he’s now in, Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel. I congratulated him on his retirement and he told me about all the fake news that’s out there about it, so this is his chance to set the record straight. We talk about a ton of subjects…..

*His band Saigon Kick and how it got their name

*How many more gigs he’ll play with Jake E. Lee and the guys

*His retirement and the rumors around it

*What he’s going to do after he hangs up his sticks

*When he decided to retire

*The Red Dragon Cartel

*Playing with Jake

*His writing, books, shows….

*Touring sober

*His time on reality TV

*The moment he decided to get sober and his advice to others

Al Beck is back with Rock news. What’s the next step in the evolution of Stone Temple Pilots, a documentary about the Bay Area thrash scene, Woodstock and a movie that’s going to be released next year after lots of rumors.
