Episode 406 – Which Police Did Yngwie Sell His Muppet Too

Witchpolice Radio just turned 10 years old. We bring on its host Sam Thompson to pull a topic from out board. Pop stars have been plucking rock musicians to beef up their live sound and to add some edge to their live shows. Is it selling out for these musicians to take a break from their bands to perform for thousands of fans who have no idea who they are? We cover Fish of Fishbone performing with Justin Timberlake, Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme performing for Rihanna, Chris Shiflett from No Use For A Name performing with Foo Fighters, and Eddie Van Halen playing on Michael Jackson’s Beat It. The convo also covers artists who never would do the deed and a talk of bands who have replaced key members and still continue to tour like Kiss and the Guess Who.

We also talk about Bert and Ernie, Yngwie Malmsteen and the Muppets, Sesame Street Fever, toys and collectibles and just how cutting-edge Stan Lee from Marvel was.

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.
