Getcha Rocks Off with Mick Wall

Sep 9, 2020

Join Mick Wall and his guest co-host, author and journalist Jon Hotten, as they jump into a DeLorean and venture back in time to the spandex and AquaNet hairspray-adorned Sunset Strip of West Hollywood in the '80s.

 They unpack many tales from their travels, and explore:

  • the iconic Rainbow Bar & Grill
  • the origins of glam, hair metal
  • Franki Banali and Quiet Riot
  • Ozzy and Sharon
  • the rise of Motley Crue
  • Mud wrestling at the Tropicana
  • Tommy Lee squaring off with David Lee Roth
  • The feud between Axl Rose and Vince Neil
  • Guns 'n Roses
  • Gin fizzes
  • Twisted Sister hunting Krokus at Covent Garden
  • Joe Perry scoring from the enigmatic Izzy Stradlin
  • the curious case behind Bruce Dickinson not getting any songwriting credits on Iron Maiden's Somewhere in Time album

...and a whole bunch more sex, drugs n rock 'n roll!
