The Podcast Is Now On YouTube

I had several requests to add my podcast to YouTube so here’s the debut episode with Jean Beauvoir. (Note that the first few episodes will be audio only since I hadn’t planned on doing video.)

The debut episode of Big Al’s Rockin’ Podcast features a discussion with Jean Beauvoir about his 2022 book ‘Bet My Soul on Rock and Roll, The Diary of a Black Punk Icon’. They talk about the process of writing the book, challenges faced, and the legacy he wants to leave. Jean shares insights on working with artists like Paul Stanley, the Ramones, and Steven Van Zant. He also discusses the importance of persistence and consistency in pursuing a music career in today’s climate. The conversation touches on collaborations with Paul Stanley, recording a single for a KISS tribute project, and his involvement in KISS albums like ‘Animalize’ and ‘Asylum’. Jean reflects on missed opportunities and the importance of following your instincts in the music industry.
