Iron Maiden's Adrian Smith: "Something about the blues just makes you feel good."

John Mcmurtrie

Iron Maiden’s Adrian Smith jumps on the line with Kyle Meredith to talk about Smith/Kotzen, the new album that finds him collaborating with Richie Kotzen. The English guitarist discusses their shared love of bands like Deep Purple, Free, and Humble Pie, as well as early blues’ influence on hard rock. Smith also gets into the album’s themes a bit with an eye on getting away from the past and moving forward, and then lets us in on what the live shows might sound like, which would include songs from both artist’s back catalog.

Listen to the interview above and then check out the videos below.

Kyle is the WFPK Music Director. Email Kyle at kmeredith@lpm.org
