– For this edition of the Paltrocast, I spoke with 3 different fun and inspirational people with new albums. Greg Holden is an Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter, originally from England, who recently released a new single through BMG called “The Power Shift.” Greg also did a lot of touring this year alongside Butch Walker, who I asked about within our chat.
Dee Snider is more than the famed frontman of Twisted Sister, having found success as a radio host, actor, filmmaker, author, reality TV star, and podcaster. Dee’s latest album is For The Love Of Metal, a true metal album which he worked on with Hatebreed singer Jamey Jasta.
Greg Behrendt is a popular stand-up comedian, who has also written best-selling books and written for major television shows. His new comedy album Why Are You In Here? was released through Audible last month.
