Episode 352 – Tony From Restrayned: Guitar Slinging and Kiss Kruising

We welcome Tony the Brick from the band Restrayned to the show. What a blast, what a professional, and what an amazing guest. Thanks, Tony!

(6:38) We break into Tony’s musical journey from his earliest band and starting Restrayned. Just how were these albums put together, from writing and recording, and just how special a band Restrayned is. (33:06) The Shout It Out Loudcast may call him curmudgeon, but we call him the Brick. How did Tom and Zeus and their endless ribbing of Tony get under SeanGeek’s skin and make him a fan.

(35:06) Tony talks all the Kiss Kruise. Tony attended along with the alum over at Shout It Loudcast and the great Pooni brothers and he has some stories to tell. (45:59) We talk team Ace and when Ace let Tony down and when SeanGeek was propped up. (50:03) Brent Fitz is a Canadian treasure and proved his worth yet again during the Kruise. And just what great Canadian bands did the show push onto Tony. (55:00) And how great is Brian Adams? Tony will tell you. (55:52) How elusive was Kiss on the cruise and just how great was Queensryche? (58:04) We talk The Charismatic Voice on YouTube and Helloween. (1:04:32) And we finish the show with: Would Tony ever play with Don Dokken?

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
