This Friday’s Guest DJ: THE RODS

The Rods Band Photo 2023

The Rods are a classic heavy metal band that rocked their way through the 80s with a powerful, raw energy that led them on tours with some of today’s greatest metal bands – Judas Priest, Ozzy, Motörhead, and Metallica, to name just a few. The Rods also get mentioned for their guitarist David “Rock” Feinstein, a cousin to the late, great Ronnie James Dio. David was influential in Ronnie’s early musical years.

The band’s latest release is a new live album, Live At Rose Hall, which is an incendiary performance captured live on the unforgettable night of July 15, 2022, at Rose Hall in their hometown of Cortland, New York. The release includes an assemblage of classic The Rods tunes like, ”I Just Wanna Rock”, “Too Hot To Stop”, “Hurricane”, “Power Lover”, and more. Live At Rose Hall provides listeners with the kind of bombastic aural assault that The Rods are known for all over the world.

Featuring veteran members David “Rock” Feinstein (guitar/vocals) and Carl Canedy (drums), “Live at Rose Hall” is also the debut feature-length performance of Freddy Villano (bass/backing vocals) who is this week’s Guest DJ.

In this Guest DJ Show, Freddy will introduce ten of his most influential Metal tracks before we play tracks off that new album, Live At Rose Hall!
