Nita Strauss made a name for herself as lead guitarist for the Alice Cooper Band.  But she has stepped out on her own with a solo song featuring David Draiman from Disturbed called Dead Inside.  THIS IS A HUGE MILESTONE as she made headlines for Billboard magazine stating, "Nita Strauss Is First Solo Woman to Top Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart in Over 30 Years."  How does Nita feel about this?  You'll hear it straight from her as she sits down on the Shiprocked Cruise and talks with LA Lloyd.

Falling In Reverse have released what LA Lloyd feels is their best single ever called Zombiefied.  And who better to tell you the story of that song than their vocalist Ronnie Radke.  Zombiefied has been going up the Rock 30 chart very fast and will be featured on Falling In Reverse's new EP Neon Zombie. Other topics discussed with Ronnie include his love of Freddie Mercury, what he does with all the ideas he's always writing down to eventually formulate them into songs, his love/hate relationship with TikTok, and the making of the video Zombiefied.

Here's another from the LA Lloyd Archives recorded May 4, 2021

Josh Katz from Badflower and LA Lloyd have one major thing in common; panic attacks.  There's several things that could cause it in Josh's world like playing their new song "F The World" in front of an audience.  That may not sound so scary, but due to COVID, all the members couldn't get together for a full rehearsal before doing it live.  When Josh is with LA Lloyd, it's definitely a conversation and not an interview.  Even with a few years difference between the two, they always find many of the same things in life they relate to.  The biggest of course is the music.  Also, enjoy the great story about Josh's new life on the farm near Nashville.

LA Lloyd left the studio and went on location for the Rock 30 Thanksgiving weekend special to Wise Guys in Round Rock, TX to hang with some wise guys known as Otherwise.  It's the time of year where you hang with your friends and talk about the things you are passionate about.  Fortunately for you who listen, we talk about food, drink and Rock and Roll. Did you know that Otherwise wrote a song for the Las Vegas Raiders called Silver & Black?  We will talk about how that song came to be and is now played during the games at Allegiant Stadium Also, will the Wise Guys hit the road in 2022?  Find out the answers to these questions and more when Otherwise co-hosts the LA Lloyd Rock 30.  Special thanks to Bill Nychay from Wise Guys for letting us do the show from there and of course the food and cold beverages! 

How does one convince Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder to contribute their vocals on one of the greatest Rock songs ever written?  Tom Morello will answer that question when he co-hosts the LA Lloyd Rock 30.  Tom will explain how he managed to pull off AC/DC's Highway To Hell with a ripping lead guitar solo with two of the most iconic vocalists.  In addition, have you checked out Tom Morello's Master Class?  He will give you some insight on his approach to teaching you how to creatively come up with your own sound on guitar...spoiler alert, it doesn't involve a lot of gear...only a desire to use your creativity.  Tom Morello, visionary, revolutionist, and just an all-around great guy.  It is an honor to have him co-host the LA Lloyd Rock 30. 

LA Lloyd received some exciting news a few weeks ago that he was sworn to secrecy.  Finally on October 22, the secret was released from the culprit who goes by Slash. A new single from Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators is now out called The River is Rising.  In addition, there is an album called 4 that will be released on Gibson Records February 11, 2022.  And yes, there will be a tour to go along with the album release.  But don't take LA Lloyd's word for it.  Hear the truth from the man SLASH!

LA Lloyd has been trying for a couple years to work out a co-host spot on the Rock 30 with Greta Van Fleet.  Finally, it happens weekend of May 1-2.  It is perfect timing as the band has just released their new album The Battle At Garden’s Gate that came out April 16, 2021.  Jake Kiska, guitarist and Danny Wagner, drummer will tell you a lot of stories behind the songs on the album.  Be sure to call the LA Lloyd Rock 30 hotline at 855-576-2530 because it’s gonna be a Greta weekend.

It's the release of From Ashes To New Podcast on Matt Brandyberry's birthday 10/10/20.  In this podcast; From Ashes To New had their new album finished late 2019 and ready to be released this Spring.  A little pandemic hits and things didn't play out as planned.  Matt B, From Ashes To New vocalist, joins LA Lloyd to co-host the Rock 30 to get you updated.  We will talk about and play their new song called Panic.  Check out the video for Panic...they literally destroy an office. .

Back in 2016, Kevin Martin, Candlebox vocalist, and I did a virtual interview via Skype.  Little did we know that four years later, these type of interviews would become the norm in 2020.  What has Kevin been doing in the middle of the pandemic?  Actually he admits he should be practicing more but fortunately his wife has been nudging him to get back at it.  Candlebox worked with Peter Cornell, Chris' brother, for a new track called Let Me Down Easy.  There is a possible virtual live performance coming once the band can all get in one spot...probably Los Angeles.  And yes there will be a new album from Candlebox in 2021...and hopefully a tour to go with it. 

While it's been a few years since Amy Lee from Evanescence co-hosted the LA Lloyd Rock 30, like 2011...You can be rest assured she is back and her voice is stronger than ever in so many different ways.  While everyone has not been allowed to tour, Evanescence has been busy writing music, self-producing videos and encouraging everyone to get out and vote on election day.  We will talk about the new single called Use My Voice which features Taylor Momsen from The Pretty Reckless, Lzzy Hale from Halestorm and others.  Also, we will dedicate some time to Headcount which is a national non-profit organization that works with musicians to promote participation in democracy in the United States.
