Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on


Rappin’ with Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett

Last week I had the opportunity to chat with Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett about his new solo release, credited to Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants (also available on vinyl!).  Presumably, Shiflett was able to locate some new peasants, because he's currently out on tour supporting the new release, playing a series of shows that will bring him to Cleveland for a show on Thursday, August 5th at the Grog Shop, with Cleveland locals Ohio Sky supporting (paging Pat the Producer, are you listening?).

Shiflett will also be in St. Louis this coming Monday at the Old Rock House, so I spoke with him in advance of that show for the Riverfront Times to get some dirt about the tour and what fans can expect.  You can check out the first part of the interview here.  We also spent quite a bit of time nerding out about guitars and talked a bit about the new Foo Fighters album as well.  That part of the conversation will be online on Monday at the RFT music blog, so stay tuned...
