The World Of Trans-Siberian Orchestra & Savatage
Follow This Show
Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
Music writer/bassist Aaron Joy (former owner of Roman Midnight Music label/marketing; CD reviewer www.romanmidnightmusic.blogspot.com, host of blogtalkradio's "Roman Midnight Music CD Reviews & Interviews" & "The Maine Music Journal") takes a weekly look at the enigma that is the popular rock band Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Loved by some, decried by others for leaving its metal roots; a rehash of past music or braving new musical frontiers; a band or a revolving door of musicians; past it's prime or the most revolutionary rock band out there? Includes music clips, discussion, history. Each episode is theme driven, looking at the past, present & future & all things TSO related, including Savatage. *** This show is in no way formally associated with TSO/Savatage or any of its participants or Night Castle Management. *** The show is now off the air, but feel free to contact Aaron via facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org Transcriptions of all interviews can be found on his interviews blog http://www.aaronjoyrockinterviews.blogspot.com.
