Shannon Larkin [Pt. 2]: Writing the New Godsmack Record

Shannon Larkin [Pt. 2]: Writing the New Godsmack Record

Benny, Siobhán, and Cory join Shannon Larkin once again to discuss the heartbreak that fueled Godsmack's upcoming record, and a look into Shannon's own personal writing inspiration for lyrics. Shannon recalls his experience talking with Alex Van Halen on tour and his dangerous yet incredible cigarette trick. We dive into more Apocalypse Blues Revival, hearing more on the recording process and the uniqueness of the band, as well as a retelling of the time Shannon and Dave Fortman both judged an American Idol-style competition. All this and more, tune in and get ready to be 2020d!
