In the first part of this interview from the archives, Ron will discuss shooting his video for "Don't Know Who To Pray To Anymore" in 3 different countries and doing battle with immigration officers, airlines and spiders.

Todd Whitener : Todd burst onto the scene selling more than 1.5 million records as guitarist of the band Days Of The New. He brought dazzling fretwork and vocal harmonies to DOTN's self-titled debut which contained the hit songs "Touch, Peel And Stand", "Shelf In The Room" and "The Downtown". With a platinum album and a tour with Metallica under his belt, things seemed to be coming up Todd.
Then, singer Travis Meeks abruptly fired the entire band forcing Todd and his fellow bandmates to resort to working menial jobs while they picked up the pieces. Todd and company battled back, signing to Maverick Records with their new band, Tantric, scoring hits with songs like "Astounded" "Mourning" and the Billboard #1 "Breakdown" . Tantric toured with Kid Rock, Creed and 3 Doors down among others and their debut album went gold. However, their next album did not. Though it sold respectably selling more than 200,000 copies Tantric fell victim to the sophomore jinx. Record company woes and line-up changes followed with Todd himself leaving the band in 2007.
Under the name Whitener, Todd would go on to release several records. Now, he's joined forces once again with his former DOTN and Tantric bandmates to form the band Blisskrieg with singer, Donald Carpenter. Their debut, Remedy is on sale now.
Todd and Kasey go in depth on the writing and recording of Remedy and focus in on several tracks, including the incredible lead single "Inside Me". Mr. Whitener also has some sound advice for harmony singers, gives a shout out to legendary pedal steel player, Van Coffee (George Jones) who played on the song, "Destination Unknown", talks slide guitar and the influence of Dean DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots.
Steve Gorman: Original drummer of The Black Crowes, current drummer of the incredible, Trigger Hippy, author and radio host, Steve Gorman is coming back to The Kasey Ferguson Show!
Steve will discuss everything from the importance of a band having a great team behind them and working with Jimmy Page to The Black Crowes costumed mushroom party with little people, the writing of the By Your Side album, why they threatened to kick legendary producer, Rick Rubin's ass and the misconceptions about his involvement with the band.
