  3. Always love having Victor back on Talking Metal, wish Skype had behaved a little bit more, but I’m sure you guys wished that too. Great interview!!!

    Best of luck, Victor!!!

  4. Hi,
    Mark, you can stop wringing your hands over John. Even I am a post-John era listener! TM is you and Emily. To the listener John is a welcome contributor every now and then. Once a month, once a year, it doesn’t matter.
    As for the branding ….. I feel your pain, as someone who has albums out under a few different names. You’re a big Kiss fan, well that also stands for “Keep It Simple, Stupid”. Easier said than done.
    I’d welcome more input from Victor as long as you guys used a landline! This was a tough episode to get through. I couldn’t.
    This post seems negative, it’s not meant to be.

    1. Anthony,

      I hear ya! Yeah, the connection with Victor has been rough the last couple times he has been on. We will need to look for a Skype alternative next time.
