The Runaways are one of the most influential bands of the 70’s- certainly the most influential all girl band of any era. And my guest today is the original lead vocalist of that group- the lovely Cherie Currie, and what a story she has to tell. Like I mentioned The Runaways basically rocked the music industry to their core with their attitude fueled performances and sexually explicit lyrics- all being fronted by a 15 year old Cherie Currie. They were wild, and drug fueled, and presented to the world as basically 'jailbait'! If you’ve seen the awesome film titled “The Runaways”, which is partially based on Currie’s brutally honest memoir then you’ll know what I’m talking about. And if you haven’t seen it – go see it!

Cherie is touring Australia in a few weeks so if you’re interested her show dates are available in the show notes at: musicbusinessfacts.com!

I hope you enjoy my conversation with this living rock legend.

My expert guest today is Satchel- lead guitarist for the very talented and incredibly funny American parody glam act Steel Panther.

I’ve got to admit that this is definitely the most politically incorrect episode of Music Business Facts ever, but it was a lot of fun to interview this guy.

Satchel’s real name is Russ Parish and I did inquire if he’d be interested in doing a “serious” interview, but he wasn’t, so when I realised that I’d be speaking with the character “Satchel” I thought I’d have a bit of fun with it and have a bit of a crack at comedy myself. So don’t take this episode of the show too seriously!

Although, there are actually a couple of good music business facts in this interview, most of it is just a bit of fun so I really hope you enjoy it.

Steel Panther are touring Australia next month in June. If you haven’t seen them live before they are an excellent band, kind of a cross between Motley Crue, Skid Row, Van Halen and Rodney Rude- It’s a great show and if you like your 80’s metal performed flawlessly and delivered in a hilarious R rated manner you’ll love Steel Panther!

My podcast today is about How to Start and Operate a Successful Independent Recording Studio, and today I talk with not one but two guests.

Rohan Sforcina and Rob Vasey come from an awesome little music studio just 30 minutes drive north of Melbourne, VIC called Four Hundered Acres Recording Studio. You can check out the awesome facilities by going to fourhundredacres.com, or by visiting the show notes at www.musicbusinessfacts.com

The guys run a great little studio and this is a cool interview where Rohan and Rob give a fantastic no-holds-barred insight into what it’s like to start and run a studio. And for those musos who aren’t necessarily interested in starting a studio- keep listening because Rohan and Rob give some fantastic tips that anyone who is about to enter the studio needs to hear.

As always I'd love to hear feedback from all of you, get in contact at: Rodney@musicbusinessfacts.com

My guest today is a super interesting guy called Eyal Levi. Eyal is an ex-touring metal musician who went through the whole major label system, and now has positioned himself as not only a successful recording engineer and producer, but also as a successful sound production trainer and entrepreneur. I think you’ll really enjoy this interview regardless of whether you’re coming from a performance, songwriting angle or from the sound production sector.
